Internet Explorer settings backup. How to I restore the original settings?


Certain spyware components can change the current settings of your browser without your permission (for example, changing the home page, etc.). If the current settings of your browser are correct and you want to make a backup which you can easily recover if necessary, follow the steps below:

  1. Click on Status in the main window of the program.

  2. In the Protection section, click Settings.

  3. Make sure that the Known threats option is selected.

  4. Click on the option Settings in the Threats to detect and exclude section.

  5. Click Advanced settings.

  6. Click Check/Uncheck all and click Save values.

If you need to restore the original settings at any time, select Check/Uncheck all and click on Restore originals. When you do this, all the values in the current value column will be replaced with the values in the saved value column.


Note: If you have more than one browser installed, and one of them is 64-bit, you will see a drop-down list through which you can select the browser version to which the protection will apply. By default, your default browser will be selected.

The browser settings have changed, how can I recover them?

If you notice that the Internet browser settings have changed without your permission (for example, the home page has changed), you can restore your original settings by following these steps:

  1. Select the check box corresponding to the option you want to modify (for example, the home page).

  2. Click Modify.

  3. Enter the address (URL) you want to modify in the current value and saved value boxes and click on OK.

Repeat these steps for each option you want to change (home page, search page, etc.).


By default, a pop-up message appears that lets you authorize or prevent changes to the browser configuration. If you never want this type of modification to take place, click on Don't allow settings to be modified.
