I am running IE 6.
I wish to change the home page but it is greyed out in "Internet options". Any ideas from the smart people here

What windows version are you running? Has the homepage been changed without your permission?

Run Spybot and/or Adaware if your homepage has been hijacked. If you already use Spybot is the Lock IE startpage.........., check box ticked in the Immunize window (towards bottom)?

Try a repair of IE in Control Panel > Add Remove Programs > Internet Explorer > Change, button.

If you have win2k or xp, try: go Start > Run and type gpedit.msc, in the left pane of the window expand (+) Administrative Templates > (+) Windows Components and Internet Explorer and find Disable changing home page settings in the right pane, right click > Properties and set to enable.

Change it back to locked once you have the homepage you want.
