Attempt to change homepage blocked

Posted

I downloaded some free unzip software and it changed my homepage to http://search.jzip.com/ Any attempts I make to change the homepage are blocked. I have deleted the jzip software and uninstalled/reinstalled Firefox, but it has not worked. Any help would be appreciated.
