Hi, I ran "Reset Internet Explorer Settings" to allow Internet Explorer 7 to run without crashing. Although running RIES allowed IE7 to run O.K., I am now unable to change my home page. When I change it in Internet Settings and reopen EI7, the home page is not what I changed it to. I have worked around this by simply putting my home page on my desktop as its own IE7 page icon, however I would like to figure out what registry information was changed. Thanks for any help!

I'm having the exact same problem. After running RIES and re-enabling everything my homepage has defaulted to msn.com and cannot be changed. Can someone give us a solution to this

I was having the same problem as well and found it had to do with Norton Internet Security 2006. In the antivirus portion of Norton Internet Security, in the options page, there is a home page protection setting. Normally when my home page would change an alert would come up asking me if this was intended. But it was not doing that when I tried to change my home page after resetting IE7. I had to deselect this protection, then change the home page, then I re-enabled the protection. My home page is now changed.

WOW - thank you so much - I've had this problem for nearly a year now and it's been driving me insane!! Especially as I work for a software company and NONE of the guys here had a clue - we even removed and re-installed IE!

You're a star!

Thank you so much. I should have known it would be Norton. The part that is confusing, why all of a sudden. I have run Norton for about 8 months and I have changed my home page many times. So why all of a sudden does it lock out change homepage Trust me I don't change my Norton settings unless I have to!

Thanks again!
