First, just be sure you have no utilities which has been installed to lock the home page

a. "HijackThis" is a general homepage hijacker, detector, and remover which you may be using, (Config, Main, Below URLs will be . . ).

b. "Spybot Search&Destroy v1.3" has a lock (Tools, IE tweeks, middle box check).

Sussed !! It was the Pop-Up Blocker on Google that was causing the prob. Wouldn't allow changes to homepage. Cheers !! GMB
