Ok, How do I set the homepage for the default user?  I have tried everything I can think of.  

I have changed the
HKLM\software\microsoft\Internet Explorer\main  -  Default_Page_URL, Start Page
I have loaded the default user hive and changed the settings in there and it STILL sets it every time!
I even sysprepped it and had it set to copy profile with the Homepage set to no avail.  It's Windows 7 SP1 with IE9.

I am not seeing anything called Access Connections.  There is an Access Help, but that's not what I need.  I think the Access Connections has been gone for a while.

Load the default hive again, and try this one......

“HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\Start Page”

FIXED!  I ended up using the IEAK and created a new custom Internet Explorer Profile and replaced the Custom.ins file with my own.
