IE keeps setting homepage to www.MSN.com

#1
What is with IE? :confused:

I have gone to Tool > Internet Option, and I've set the homepage(startpage) to blank several times. Everytime I restart the comptuer or something, IE sets it back to MSN.com. I think it has something to do with SP2. Haven't had this problem before SP2. :mad:

Hrmmm... anyone experience the same problem?
It is quite annoying. I like to start out on a blank page.

did u install msn toolbar or u keep running adaware after setting ur home page to about:blank? because adaware finds thats as a hijack attempt and when u remove it, it sets ur homepage i think to the microsoft thing

By the way, in the new version of AdAware SE, you can actually tell it what your home page SHOULD be in IE. That way it won't detect your about:blank as a hijack attempt. Basically it's just seeing something different than what it thinks your homepage should be, so it says "hey! did you ask for this to be your homepage?"

If you use hijackthis you can just wipe out all those "false" homepages etc...

Did someone already say this?
That's not really the issue here... He was saying that his homepage was purposely set @ about:blank, but Adaware thinks it wasn't, so marks it as a hijack attempt. And with Adaware, you can tell it what your homepage SHOULD be set at and as long as it matches what you tell it that it should be, it won't log it as a hijack attempt.
