My current home page is www.netscape BUT I want to change my home page to PC World
However, when I go TOOLS/INTERNET OPTIONS?GENERAL , I find that the HOME PAGE option is greyed out
Please help me get around this problem

If the feature is disabled (greyed out), go to Doug Knox's site and download this script: Here ( http://www.dougknox.com/security/scripts_desc/nosethomepage.htm) Usage: Download nosethomepage.vbs and save this file to your hard drive. Navigate to where you saved it and double click the file. The VB Script file will check for the appropriate value and if not found will create it. You will be notified whether the option is enabled or disabled.

To manually make the change: Start/Run/Regedit

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Inte rnet Explorer\Control Panel\HomePage
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main] "Start Page"
To enable make =dword:00000000
