You must have faced situations where some crappy website would have changed your default home page in Internet Explorer to their own home page. Such websites are mostly full of spyware programs and their main purpose is to stuff your computer with spyware which will gather important data and send it to the person behind those websites.
To stop such activities either you can manually check the default home page to the one that you prefer after every site that you visit or else you can use this little trick.
Right Click on the Internet Explorer icon on your desktop and then click “Properties”. Now in the target field the text which you will find is:
“F:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE”
All you need to do is append the URL which you want to be your default home page in Internet Explorer. Like if I want this blog of mine to be my default home page then all that I will do is add www.nofullstop.com to the above URL (with a space between the two). Finally it will look something like this:
“F:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE” www.nofullstop.com
Now the entry in Home Page section of Options window will be overridden and hence even if some website changes the default home page of yours still your home page will remain what you actually want it to be.
