One of two things may have happened: Spyware may be blocking it, or a program often used on work and school computers may be blocking it.

If you post a HJT log (see HJT forum) here, we can help you figure out which one it is and how to remove it :tazz:

Just as I expected. Close any open windows, rescan with HJT, and fix these:

O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel present
O19 - User stylesheet: (file missing)

After doing this you should be able to change your homepage.
