would someone please help me with this problem?
I click on a new tab and it comes up as a blank page rather than your first home page.

It works fine during the current session, however after a shutdown and restart, new tab opens as a blank page again.

I have windows 7 home premium 64 bit.

after restarting computer, the problem is exactly the same.
that is to say that when I press Ctrl + T, the exact thing happens as before.
the new tab page is a blank page.
I want the new tab page to be my your first home page (which I have as google) or the new tab page.
do you have any other ideas??
or does anyone?
here is something I found googling online. I am afraid of doing it because it is beyond my comfort zone for what I know how to do with computers:

Please try the following, it has to do with modifying the registry so be careful:
Modifying REGISTRY settings incorrectly can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from booting properly. However we cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the configuring of REGISTRY settings can be solved. Modifications of these settings are at your own risk.
1. Click Start
2. In ‘Start Search’ type regedit, press Enter (provide administrative credentials if prompted)
3. Navigate to the following key:
4. Right-click Tabs, then click Modify…
5. Change the “Value data:” to:
6. Click OK
Now go back into Internet Explorer and make sure that under Tabs settings and under the category “When a new tab is opened, open:” you have it set for “The new tab page”. This should resolve the issue.
Please also make sure u have disabled any unused addon.
