IE 7 does not load page specified as Home Page

new dell server.  IE came with dell's website as homepage.

i set IE 7 homepage to a company website.  this is the only home page specified.

when i launch IE, it tries to load www.dell.com instead of the page i specified.  i click the Home button and it loads the correct page...

how do i get IE to load the home page at launch?

can't be a virus or malware...  this is a brand new installation...
i haven't changed the home page in GPO
there is no 3rd party application controlling the home page...

could dell have set something in the registry?

delete reg key called First Home Page that pointed to www.dell.com

now IE7 is loading the home page i've specified.
