I know how to prevent the changing of home page in the registry, but where is the option in Group Policy Editor?
Another option I am considering in exporting the registry setting, and then importing to the other computers. Can someone give me an example of a batch file  that can copy the reg file into the other computers silently?

If you want more home pages for TABS -> use IEAK & GPO

I have already done that, but the users can still change it back by going into internet options. I know how to disable the option to change (grey out the features) by editing the registry. I thought there was a method of doing it by using GPO. If not, then how can I push the registry settings to the other computers? I know there is a way to do it without prompting the users to confirm the migrating of the registry settings. I just don't know how to do it...hence my post.

As uning tou want to set the home page for all the computers in the domain, Go to
Administratove Tools->Default Domain Policy->User Configuration->Administrative Templates->Internet Explorer.

In the hand right panel, double-click on Disable change home page settings and check Enable.

Type the home page name (eg http://www.google.com)

Thanks for your response, however, there is no option for user configuration. I have attached a file of what options I get. Unless you are referring to the GPO editor

I figured where the setting is, but I am awarding you the points because it was from your solution that prompted me to look at the gpo that I had already created. You hinted at the wrong MMC, but you had the correct steps.
