Can't Change IE Homepage

Recommended Posts

For some reason can't change my homepage. It is one of two culprits, SAS paid, or WinPatrol. Have unchecked real time and left blank homepage protection on SAS, and made all appropriate unchecks on Win Patrol. Have killed SAS core and prevented both programs from loading yet still unable to change homepage. Any ideas or suggestions appreciated. TIA

Click on this link https://duckduckgo.com/


Then select the Gear or Tools in IE


Select Internet Options


On the General tab select Use Current


Select Settings under the Search sub heading


Select DDGo from the list and choose Set Default


Select OK






Also make a note of what other search engines you have in the list.


Restart the computer and see if that fixes things.

That is a negative. Only search engines were duck,bing,google. Me thinks a previous version of SAS or Winpatrol locked it and thru upgrades can't change it.....Will try and find some reg hack to solve the problem. Appreciate your time.

@ douglas9,


 BrowserJavaVersion: 1.6.0_31=Outdated

Present version is Version 7, update 21


It would be interesting to see your DDS log with " If you wish to scan all of them, select the 'Force scan all domains' option."
