Control Panel/Internet Options/Internet Properties/To create Home Page Tabs
shows Yahoo.com as the home page. When I try change it to Earthlink or MSN it is still Yahoo when I bring up Internet Explorer.
Used Default and Use blank and selected apply but it still comes back Yahoo when I bring up IE.
How do I change the home page without it reverting back to Yahoo?
Use "current" button is greyed out.

Using WXP SP2 and IE7

Any help appreciated. Thanks.
Phil B.

In the address bar type in www.msn.com (for instance), click enter. THEN click on "Tools" at the top of the page, then click at the bottom of that box "Internet Options", when the next screen comes up, click on "Use Current". That will revert your homepage to "MSN.COM".

like he said.....

unless you have an anti virus / spyware program that blocks you from changing your home page. If you do as above and it won't change, try searching in your virus protection program for "home page" for instructions. I have norton and it blocked me.....

Thank you Tyishome & Mightyvh. Followed instructions and was able to change my home page after I changed my antivirus to allow me to make the change.

Again, thanks for your help.
