Yesterday I was logging on to my own bank and somehow Bank of America (which is NOT my bank) came up as my homepage and now, no matter what I do, it will not let me change it. I typically have Yahoo!, and I have tried a couple of different ways to change it back and it just won't work. I am running Windows 7. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
It is possible that you may have become infected by malware when you attempted to log-in to your own bank, but instead ended up at BofA.
This could have happened if you made a mistake when entering the address, or if you used a search engine and clicked on a wrong link.
However, other factors may limit your ability to change IE Homepage:
Spybot Search & Destroy
Other AntiVirus / AntiMalware products? what are you running on that machine?
Perhaps an IE add-on
If you have Spybot, temporarily disable it, then attempt to change Homepage
Load IE as "Run As Administrator" then attempt to change Homepage
(remember to close that instance of IE before doing any general browsing)

I've had a friend who had the same problem .. tried to reset it by going to options ... all the links to the home page are whited out so you can't change them ...even after following the directions on reseting Internet Explorer 10 ... so as a last resort I opened another tab on my IE version 10 and after having two tabs open ... typed in the homepage I wanted on the second tab... I was able to make the new home page as my default home page ...as this option was offered on the tabbed page .. this worked ... but seems to be the only way to do it ? And when I go back to the options page even though I got the new hompage as my Default .. It is still whited out and unable to change from the internet opiions page .. but atleast I got my homepage back ...

I've had problems with appbarrio myself, it is an absolute nightmare to fix.

If so, I guess your computer may have been infected with redirect virus. If you have no clue on how to deal with your problem,
