Internet Home Page using Group Policy not updating on IE7

We have recently changed our Intranet address and would like to have Internet explorer default to this page for all users Home Page.

I have updated the Group Policy to point to the new Home page, which has worked for all IE6 users but has failed to update for some IE7 users.

It would appear that all IE7 users that have had IE7 as a new laptop have updated, but those that have had IE6 upgraded manually to IE7 in the past are not updating to the new home page.

I've tried the usual gpupdate /force but that hasn't worked.  Am I missing something simple?

Thanks in advance
