If the above doesn't work, you can try the RunOnce removal tool here:

This could be what appears is a common bug in IE7. Try the following:

Click on Start then Run and type gpedit.msc in the run box and hit enter. This will bring up the GPE.

In the left pane of the window that pops up double click on Administrative Templates, Windows Components and finally Internet Explorer.

Look in the right window pane and find Prevent performance of First Run Customize settings and double click it. Change the setting to Enabled and chose Go directly to home page from the drop down window next to "Select your choice."

Click OK and once you restart Internet Explorer, it should take you directly to your home page.
