can't change home page
I recently installed IE-7 on XP. On opening explorer it wants to go to a
microsoft site and says cannot find. I change the home page to the site i
want and it goes ok. On starting explorer the next time it goes back to the
microsoft address and not the wanted home page.

Have you tried a Google search on the URL shown in the Address bar when
then happens?

Re: can't change home page
Pick one:

A blank Web page is displayed when you start IE7 [or IE8; ignore the title]
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/945385

You are unable to change the home page [Welcome screen] in IE7 [or IE8]
(FixIt4Me)
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/967753

When you open IE7 [or IE8], it may default to [the Welcome or Customize Your
Settings] page

NB: All of the above apply to IE7 and IE8
