Tools -> Internet Options has the correct information for the homepage we want. We have also double checked the tabs settings and it says first homepage as you have said.
Browser hijacking. Install https://www.malwarebytes.org/ and run it.

4wd, you're on the right track, your-home-page.net is a browser hi-jacker and it may take more than a run of malwarebytes (mbam).

Quote:
Your-home-page.net is a browser hijacker, which is promoted via other free downloads, and once installed it will change your browser homepage and default search engine to your-home-page.net/

This in itself is not considered malicious as there are many legitimate programs that change these settings as well. What is considered malicious, though, is that it will also append the argument your-home-page.net/ to random Windows shortcuts on your desktop and your Windows Start Menu.
kbbgood, follow the instructions here if the mbam run doesn't help; Quote is from this link: http://Remove Your-home-page.net hijack (Virus Removal Guide) | malwaretips.com

You get the error because you are deleting everything.

Copy paste this into it:
Code:
"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"

Open the shortcut again and see if it is still "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe".

Then open "Internet Options" (Can open it from Control Panel too) and take a screenshot, then on the very same window there is a button called "Tab". Click that and take another screenshot.

I've seen browser hijacks that put an entry in the registry and the problem will keep reappearing every time the system is started or the browser is loaded. Problem is finding the entry in the registry that is the culprit. Once had one from the Wife's use of IE that would launch background processes repeatedly and eventually bog the CPU and the internet connection to a stall. Once the entry was found in the registry and deleted, the problem went away.

Jamis, would searching the registry for "your-homepage.net" would work? What do you think?

Kbbgood, try searching it and see what will come?

Did you check out Anak's link in post #22?
