IE6 Home page keeps changing tot about:blank
Posted on 2004-04-19
I had some rogue website try to change my home page a couple of weeks ago. No big deal I thought. I have run Norton AV with latest definitions and Spybot with latest definitions and yet I am having strange behavior.
I can go into registry and change all instances of about:blank (Internet Explorer/Main/Start page and Internet Explorer/Main/HOMEoldISP in HKCU and HKLM) to my desired home page, reboot and everything is fine - home gets me home. I then click on an open window, run File / New Window and a clone of first IE window opens up. If I hit Home now it has changed back to about:blank in all four registry lines as well as the new IE window. Where is the switch to stop this??
