View Full Version : Internet Explorer Start-Up Page Lock

19-10-2001, 06:45 PM
Hi All...

I have a computer that seems to have got something wrong with it. When I load Internet Explorer it always locks on to the same site as the startup page. I have tried going into Internet Options and changing the start page but all the option buttons are greyed out and I can't do anything.

How do I fix this short of reformatting the hard-drive and reinstalling everything.

Don't use IE but have heard of this before. Was IE loaded from your ISP's disk or something like that. You don't need to reformat your drive. There is an entry in the registry, an ini file or something like that.

Hi Mike & All...

I now have more info on this sorry story. It seems to have been done my some kind of Java Script from a website and it was not from an ISP CD-ROM. I have tried looking in the registry for the registry key but without any luck.

However, if you don't want to play around with your Registry - the following tiny application from Internet 'guru' Fred Langa will do the job for you:
