IE 11 tab problem

Since the last update when I go to open a new tab I get the about message. I have changed in the internet options to open tab in homepage so many times but it keeps going back to the blank page option. Any help would be appreciated. Moonlighter

If the problem still exists after following ThrashZone's suggestion, then check you antivirus and/or security apps. Sometimes those apps have a feature that attempts to prevent/revert certain changes to browsers.

Also, you might want to undo the registry changes (and anything else that you have tried) related to this thread of yours: Please help IE11 moving the menu bar to top

Uninstall Vipre

Restart the computer

Reset IE again per ThrashZone's suggestion

Do not set a new homepage or change any settings within IE after the reset

Restart the computer again

Check IE to see if the reset settings held.

Let us know the results :-)

You are welcome :-)

If you want to keep working on this, then uninstall all security related apps and install Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) (you can go back to Vipre later). As far as I know, MSE adds nothing to IE, so it is a good antivirus to use while troubleshooting stuff.

Please post a screenshot of the settings window where about:blank is showing.
