What anti-malware aps are you running. You may have one or more set to protect your homepage thereby eliminating your ability to change it.

Go into Safe Mode and change it there, then reboot. Seems to be the only way I could because of some anti-spyware was keeping me out.

If you are running Ad-Aware or Spybot,disable one at a time then change your home page then re-enable it.
Check if you have "Windows Defender", it is a free antispyware
program from Microsoft, If you have Windows Defender, I believe there is
an option in Internet Explorer under Tools/Advanced Options, to
keep your homepage as msn.com....
Also... Home page setting changes unexpectedly, or you cannot change your home page
settings,a good KB article to read:
Hope something in this helps!
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
