Internet Explorer - how do I set it up so that when it is reset it automatically displays my set homepage.

I'd like to create an nLite disk or at least know how to set a registry key that will allow me to have the homepage set to my website when IE resets.

e.g. I want the user to be able to change their homepage from the one I set but if they reset IE - I want the default home page to be my website.

As further detail the website will just be a Google search / powered by Google type setup with some branding.

Locate IERESET.INF in C:\Windows\INF, and modify the value "START_PAGE_URL=" under the strings heading, with your URL...

I have already tried modifying the iereset.inf file. This appears to have no affect on the outcome of a 'Control Panel > Internet Options > Advanced > Reset" command.

Still redirects back to a msn site once reset. This is for IE7

Try this file....

c:\Windows\IEUInit.inf

Modify this value.....

;navigation
START_PAGE                = "http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=69157"

(BTW, this is really more like a 150-250 pt. question..... Definately not as easy as I expected to be....)
