I am currently using IE7 and anytime I launch IE7 I am being redirected to: http://runonce.msn.com/runonce3.aspx

This page also fails to load successfully. A javaScript error indication is displayed in the lower left hand corner of IE7 browser window. As a result of this error, I cannot walk through the steps to customize IE7.

I have tried an "runonce" remover application from www.download.com that was specifically created to fix this problem and it did absolutely nothing. This page is still displayed when I launch IE7.

I also modified the following regsitry entries:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]



This also had no effect.

Can anyone shed some light on how to resolve this ANNOYING issue?

You are using an outdated version of internet explorer, the latest version is IE8. I recommend you update to the latest version via windows update. This may or may not solve your issue that you are describing but you never know. I say that because I believe that screen is the settings screen that was made for internet explorer 7 and internet explorer 8 doesn't have that page. Have you tried changing the homepage in settings?
If I have replied to a topic and you reply and I haven't gotten back to you within 48 hours (2 days) then send me a P.M.
