The home page always comes up to MSN.COM and then the Manage Add ons window pops up.
This is on my wife's laptop that I had to do a Factory Recovery because of two rootkit infections.
Both are normal behaviors when Windows is reinstalled.
msn.com opens as the homepage because that is the default when reinstalling Windows. The old settings were wiped out and not retained during the reinstall. Your wife can change her homepage to whatever she wants.
Navigate to the page. If there is something along the line of MAKE THIS YOUR HOMEPAGE on the page, click it.
If not click Tools/Internet Options/General tab. Under Homepage click Use Current, then Apply.
As for managing add-ons I can't tell you how to deal with this because I don't recall how to do it when it pops up after a reinstall.
