    I know this is not a 2003 server forum, but maybe someone can help. I have a problem with my homepage settings. When I change it in IE7, I keep getting the default page; "http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=74005". I have tried to set my desired homepage in internet options, made it my "only" homepage(no other tabbed pages), and I have even removed the "http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=74005" from the registry. Still, when I open IE7 it gives me the Microsoft page. What do I need to do to set my homepage?? Thanks

    You probably have internet explorer enhanced security installed.
    It is locking the page and only allows access to sites that
    are allowed in the acces list.
    If you don't need the enhanced security,you can uninstall it
    from add remove programs in the control panel,windows components.
    You will need to do it as administrator.
    Removing it will put IE back in normal mode.

    Thanks leroys1000, that too may help. But after several hours and many pulled hairs I found my problem. IE7 needs to connect to the run once address, "http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=74005". Once there you must select an option and save settings. kinda makes me feel duh!!! thanks though.
