In the Security Forum a removal method was noted a few times. Look there.

Not sure what steps you took to remove it from 'properties', but normally, if you just travel to another website (preferrably one you want to have as your homepage instead), just go to Tools/Internet Options, and on that main page that comes up click USE CURRENT at the top and it will default to that page from now on.
