since using google as internet home page i cannot get rid ofit altered to default seems to work but the next time i log on there is google again have done a search for google both on hard drive and registry but cannot find why this is happening can anyone please help
The way I do it is to type in the URL you want to be your home page and press Enter on your keyboard. The next time you log on the new URL should be your homepage. Clicking on OK at the bottom does not keep the setting.
Open S&D. On the top menu select Mode and select Advanced, Say Yes at the dialog box and pretend you know what you`re doing. (You can return to standard mode later by reversing this procedure.)
In the left hand pane select Tools from the bottom. In the right hand pane make sure "IE Tweaks is ticked. This will put an icon in the left pane underneath Tools. Select this icon and in the right hand pane will appear three tick boxes underneath "Miscellaneous Locks) Tick the first one that says Lock hosts file ..... UNTICK the second that says "Lock IE start page settings against current user changes" This is the important one.
Incidentally the last box "Lock IE control panel against opening from within IE" I also leave unticked.
Close S&D after you have reverted to normal mode. That should eliminate S&D from the equation so try and alter your start page again. Suggest you reboot first though.
