    Is this a local pc or joined to domain ?

    Gpedit , if you use the right options it should hide it, of course your user should not have any admin rights

    or you can even use some 3th party programs to do so

      this is local machine, and i had applied local GPO to hide general tab in IE, but it does not restrict user to change home page, i want that normal user can not change homepage by any means.
      if 3rd party tool available, please tell me abt tht.

        Found this, maybe you could restrict the permissions on the key to read only for the user in question after you changed it?

        If you want to set the home page used by Internet Explorer through the registry
        1. Start Regedit
        2. Go to HKey_Current_User \ Software \ Microsoft \ Internet Explorer \ Main
        3. Give the Start Page key the string value you wish set as homepage
