  1. I am not sure if this is the right forum to post in, but here goes anyway...

    About 2 months ago I had to do a system restore on my Dell Latitude 100L. Everything went fine except now internet explorer will not let me set my homepage. No matter what I change it to, it always goes back to dell.com. Any suggestions?

    Two things can lock your homepage -

    1.Spyware

    2.Anti-spyware

    In your case I suspect it`s an anti-spyware.

    Here are some programs that can do this -

    Ad-aware's Ad-Watch
    McAfee VirusScan and/or Antispyware
    Norton AV
    Spyware Blaster
    Spybot- Teatimer
    Spysweeper
    Windows Defender

    Go into the options of whichever your using and change the relevant setting.More HERE

    Also,use Firefox instead of IE for general browsing.
