Has anyone experienced having your home page constantly being changed to about:blank?? This is happening with IE 11, but works ok with other browsers like Chrome.



This is also happening in Vista as well. My start up home page should be my yahoo, and I bring that page up and put that in and set it to current. It looks like removes about:blank and I tell it apply and close out and go back and look and it says it's about:blank. driving me nuts.

Hello memojo and Welcome -

You should just need to Reset your Home Page


If you are stuck on how to get rid of about Blank in Internet Explorer
Open I.E. browser > Click on Tools > Drop down Menu to Internet Options > General Tab > Now Check your normal Home Page(s) are listed there.

You say yours is normally http://www.yahoo.com (you may need to add .us, or .uk (or .au as I use)
Now > Click use the Use Current button below that box, and finally, click OK.

Last - Reboot and Recheck (as above) that all is still correct -


Now update your Antivirus and Antimalware programs and run a full scan -


Thank You -
