And yes, you can do it by going into the GPO under User Configuration (Windows Settings | Internet Explorer Maintenance | URLs) Select the Properties of the URLs and then enter your home page in the field labelled Home Page URL.

Also try this URL : http://www.computerperformance.co.uk/w2k3/gp/group_policy_internet_explorer.htm

create a new group policy
expand user configuration --> administrative templates --> system --> logon --> run these programs at user logon --> make it enabled and click addm you can add "iexplorer.exe"

Thanks guys, but how aboat if a user logon a computer more than once a day. I want it to startup only one time a day, when a user logon his computer.

Is there anywhere in a Group policy to setup only run this once a day. ?

every time he will log on, once he logged it will start the internet explorer

why you need it only one time????

I need it to do it once because of the policy of the company - it's our intranet site.
We have in a vbs script today, but now I would like it to be a group policy - so we don't need the script.
But I can't find anywhere in GP to set it up.

i will be only for one time if the user did not log off, for example if the user only lock his machine when he log on it will not start again, i will start again only if he log off and log on again

When user log off and login he will get the page again, If user locked and login again then he wont get the page. So now you have decide how you planning to perform this and let me know.
