Okay everyone. I will admit that I am a newbie to this forum. Just
when I think I consider myself having mastered much of the "basics,"
I suddenly find myself stumped, once again. For the record, I have
been a computer buff since the EARLY 1990's. In fact, I ran a local
BBS before I suddenly discovered the Internet around 1992/1993.
My question is, that lately, I cannot seem to be able to access my
browser (IE) so that I can change the home page. In other words, I
go to the typical Tools/Internet Options, and go to the General section.
But, for some reason, the whole area is shaded/highlighted, whatever
you want to call it. NONE of the buttons, Use Current, Use Default,
or Use Blank will work in an effort to change my home page. I had
been using Browser Hijack Blaster. But even with it turned off, I could
no longer change my home page. For the record, I also implement the
use of Spybot S & D, AND purchased ZeroSpyware to thwart spyware.
I even tried downloading and installing Advanced Browser, and Ace
Explorer. The same thing happened with them. I HAD been using
the Mozilla Firefox browser. Even with the current update of Mozilla,
I could no longer get that one to work AT ALL. Has anyone else
ever had a problem like this? I'm at a loss.
