    Hi and welcome,

    If I'm not mistaken, that setting only ensures that no one else using your computer can manually play with your home page settings. It does NOT, I think, protect against such changes coming from malware or other "outside" sources.

    Maybe it's not a huge protection, especially if you're the only user, but sometimes handy in a multi-user environment.

    It should prevent "most" homepage hi-jack attempts by malware.
