      Just a thought - if it's that obvious, with over a million SkyBB customers, strange how no-one else seems to have found that Sky has locked their homepage (not reported by the other 28,336 Skyuser members and nothing on Google that I can see).

      It is probably "the Curse of the McAfee" that has struck again or Spybot. If it is SBS&D it is probably the TeaTimer component which is easily fixed.Just right click on the TeaTimer symbol in the system tray - it is the blue one with the lock. (If you cannot see the symbol, it is probably hidden. Just click on the arrows in the system tray to show all hidden symbols.) A window appears where you have to click on Settings to modify your personal lists of registry changes and processes. Remove Google and any other that is in there by mistake, from the blocked programs list and add them to the allowed.

This can happen with some spyware detection programs which pop up a box saying 'So and So has tried to hijack your home page, do you want to allow/disallow this action'? If you click the wrong thing, you are in effect blacklisting the site. You have probably clicked the wrong thing without even thinking about it, as the wording used is intimidating.

      How to fix it depends on what Security software you have installed and on the OS you are running. If you can post back giving these details, then someone should be able to help.

      In the meantime, have a look in the Control Panel> Add/Remove or Programs and Features list, depending on your OS and remove anything connected with 'Sky.'

      * Substitute the site you are unable to make your Homepage.

      Thank you so much for your help that actually helped, other ppl seemed to not be able to get it that it isnt me but actually sky causin the problem which is highly annoyin wen u said like 4times that it stopped workin when u put sky on...hmm so thank you for your unbiased help it worked!!! keep up the good work!!

      Glad you got it sorted.

      So in essence, all you did was un-install the Sky software and it solved it?
