IE7 not remembering home page

Hi Guys,

i was having some issues with my laptop.  internet explorer kept crashing as soon as i would open it.  i was running IE8 by mistake, so i uninstalled it and reverted back to IE7.  i was still having problems with IE crashing but i managed to find out it was a stupid microsoft add-on called "Search Helper".  

Now the issue im having which i dont know how to solve is IE wont open the homepage i have set.  it keeps opening some "" site.

Any ideas?

goto add remove programs in the control panel, Click on windows components, Uncheck Internet Explorer. you may get and option to repair, if not it may uninstall, Shut down the pc , reboot, go back to the windows componets, recheck IE restart pc and all should be good.
