  1. How can I disable users/websites from changing my homepage ?
    I have spysweeper and that has a hompage shield but it only works on Admin accounts. I want to "disable the ability" to change the homepage for the limited accounts.

    I assume you're using Internet Explorer, its homepage can be locked by editing registry:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Policies \ Explorer, if there is no dword value "NoSetHomePage", create it and set to 1.

    Or if you want it to affect only you, not all users, then use key

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Policies \ Microsoft \ Internet Explorer \ Restrictions instead.
