Does you anti virus have a protect home page feature, mine does I am sure other also have it. I do not run anything Google on any of my machines, in my eyes it has been a pain for a long time.

Honesty & Integrity Above All!

Norton AV used to block the home page to prevent hijacking.... if you go into it's settings it will allow you to disable it, however from what i remember when you change the homepage and apply, it should give you a pop up warning asking you to allow it this time.
