open the script in notepad and use CTRL+F to search for the current homepage. Replce it with: http://www.google.com and it shouldn't change.

If the problem persuits, or you cannot find the script, try to contact the manager, he knows what to do if he truly is good at his job.

If he is good, he might have it encoded anyway. So I think my reply didn't really help, sorry if this is the case.

If the laptop is yours personally, I don't know why you are having problems putting whatever page you want as the startup page. If it isn't your laptop and it has been loaded by the admin/IT at your school, you are going to have to live with whatever home page they have set to use. The script is probably in a secure bin and is a global script for use by the school.

Not much help. Sorry. :tazz:

Hey, have you tryed changing your web page from the registery? You could always write a .reg file and load it at start up after the script loads, that could be one way around it? hope that helps. Good luck.

What login software do you use (eg Novell)? Is the laptop your property or school property?

Of course (assuming you are using Internet Explorer) an easy getaround would be to download a free browser like Firefox or Opera.

If the school has those restrictions in place, you'll probably have to ask who ever is in charge with the network. A service or file is probably forcing the homepage to change every start.
