And what homepage is defined in Tools>Internet Options>General?
Mine says 'about: blank' and is blank indeed (my favorite - because fastest - homepage). What's yours?
I somehow unwittingly had my homepage changed to AOL and did all that seemed necessary to get rid of them. I did a Google search to attempt to find out some info on the redirect and read various forums, etc. I got my homepage back ok but now when I go to the internet I get my homepage on a tab but what opens is the Google search page where I asked how to get rid of the original AOL redirect. I am using XP and Windows 7, IE8. I just have no clue on why this is happening nor how to make it stop.
