Start, Run, msconfig, Boot.ini tab, checkmark /Safeboot, restart the
computer.

If your homepage of choice has been hijacked, and you can't change it back,
the registry editor is the last place to go..

I assume that the "What a company" remark pertains to the homepage that will
not go away.. perhaps you might tell us what it is?..

Sounds like you've got some malware on your pc now. Try running a full virus
scan and Spybot-Search & Destroy and Lavasoft's Ad-Aware SE. Do this in safe
mode.

Your computer has been infested with a "home page hijacker", which is
a type of spyware.

Try using MVP Jim Eshelman's Spyware Quick Fix Procedure at
http://www.aumha.org/a/quickfix.htm to clean up your computer. That
should also resolve the problem with running regedit.

Good luck
