Stop sites from making it your homepage.

Posted in Windows XP by Community Submission

I was playing around with IE one day and I found out that you can override any homepage setting in Internet Options. If you have spyware, or come accross it frequently, then this is a very good tweak for you.

1. Right-click on the IE icon on your desktop.

2. Select Properties

3. Now in the "Target" box you will see "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE"  Now by adding the url of the site to the end of this it overrides any Homepage setting in internet options.

ex: "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE"


Editor's note: This works only with a custom shortcut to Internet Explorer not the default one that opens Internet Options when you choose "properties".
