    asp and activex

    I'm not sure but I believe you will have to use asp and active x controller to be able to do this, again I'm not sure so do not take my word on this.

    Its a violation of the user to do this without them knowing. The ability change a browsers homepage should be only something that the user of that browser does.

    Its a moral issue, and think about it, it would annoy you, and secondly, would you keep going back to a webpage that set your homepage to itself everytime?

    It is possible, but very very wrong IMO.

    It doesn't make a scrap of difference IMHO. Personal, porn, commercial WHOEVER... it's bad netiquette and shouldn't be done. The fact that it is a personal site is completely irrelevant since this affects EVERYONE. By all means offer a link but that should be it. Grr.

    I am looking for this as well, I agree that it is wrong, but it does have it's benefits. We have a new Intranet website going up, and I need to redirect and set all homepages to the new Intranet.

    It may be wrong, but It has it's place.

    In which case speak to your sysadmin and get him to set the default browser's start page to your intranet page from your central server. At the end of the day if a user wants a certain page to load on start then they shouldn't be forced otherwise. If you're mad keen to do it then there are loads of resources on the web that'll show you how, I'm just fairly sure (hopeful) that no-one here will show you
