Before you mess with the registry - manually create a restore point.

I'm not sure why the changes fail. If I were working on this computer, I would run Process Monitor to see what actions occur (or fail to occur) when the home page info is written to that registry key. I would compare the info to a computer that works as expected.

Go to show all add-ons and post some screen shots,

Have you made a new administrator account and try ?
Also click Start and All programs right click Internet explorer and click on Run as administrator and see what happens on the existing account.

i tryed to manually edit the registry and...still no go....im able to input a different URL....in the registry data box....but if i double click on that start page in the registry again to see if my URL i inputed stayed...it reverted back to MSN.com...so at this point...if editing the registry didnt work,might be something more going on....thats preventing this change

You could try to find the app that is changing the value back via clean boot:

The clean boot tutorial can help you find the app causing the issue, You will probably re-install the offending app after the new OS build, so we can do the clean boot steps then :-)
