How to change homepage legitimately after loading Ad Aware SE Plus with Ad-Watch


I've loaded Adaware Plus (their paid version) and enabled Ad-Watch.  Its great, but now I can't change my own homepage in IE.  If I switch the homepage, after a reboot, Ad-watch sets it back to the original page.

I've searched everywhere and can't seem to find an answer.  Thanks for your help!

Hello stevekalu =)

I dont use Adaware Plus and Adwatch, but i have AdawareSE Edition personal version... and i think that in its Settings>Defaults it has the option to set the Default homepage... so instead of changing ur homepage from IE, why dont u chnage it from Adaware.... so it will keep it until u change it again to something else :)
What about if you disable ad watch and do your thing and then enable it.  How ad watch works is it warns you about registry settings, you can either block them or let them pass.  This one you should unblock or allow and it will work, i had that same problem a while back and i just turned it off and back on and it worked fine.
