I have just started using IE.

Each time I open it a screen tells me that I am running with Add-ons disabled. I think I understand the reason for running that way, but do I absolutely have to have that screen each time I open the browser?

Is there some way I can open the browser and go directly to my home page?

Your help is appreciated.

Hello Kojaks43,

Check your shortcut to IE. Does it have -extoff at the end of the Target box?
If so, that tells IE to not use any addons. Create a shortcut that matches that one, but remove the -extoff from the end of the Target, so it should just read as follows:

C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe

Try starting IE using the new shortcut you just created. It should now open to your home page, with addons enabled.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
