Written by: arunenigma


Some websites illegally modify your Registry Editor and set their website as default home page, to stop this, follow the procedure as below:

1. Right click on the Internet Explorer icon on your desktop and select “Properties”.

2. In the “Target” box you will see “C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE”.

3. Now by adding the URL of the site to the end of this it overrides any Homepage setting in internet options:

“C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE” http://www.google.co.in/

Here Google is set as the Home Page and practically cannot be altered by any spam websites.
