My IE 7 has the General page

It is the first tab when I open Internet Options.

Home page setting.

If you do not have the "General" tab, perhaps you have to reinstall IE7. Are you using the beta version ?

Not running beta....Right now I am considering deleting EI-7, and downloading it again..If this does not work, I will go back to IE-6 which I was comfortable with in the past...Thanks for your interest in my problem.

When IE7 first came out, I had http://yahoo.com/

Instead of downloading....

try going to the Windows update page to update your system after you have removed your present IE7. You will need XP with SP2.
