I think I've heard of a way to change the registry to prevent any changes to IE's home page, but my browser of choice is Firefox and those little suckers change things all the time. I d/l a lot of freeware and I'm usually very careful what I let in. I have Total Uninstall 6 product which helps, but still even when you cancel the install they've already changed it, or worse added some dip**** search engine which I also don't want.

Yes Conduit, Less Tabs, etc. I am talking about you.
