Thank you Mark. Yeah, this would probably be used mostly by businesses, or someone that just wants a default homepage for all users. It could also be used as a way to help prevent the homepage from being changed by a homepage redirect malware.
If I use option 1 to disable updates to the Home Page will this prevent the Group Policy from being able to change it to what the corporate standard is, or will the Group Policy override this and update it anyway?
ok thanks Brink. Do you know of anyway to pervent the group policy overriding this as my company sets this to their intranet which is a real pain as it takes forever to load and I rarely use it, preferring instead to use Google as the home page. I have set my IE .EXE launcher to use Google (""C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" Google"), but then when I am within IE and click "New Tab" it goes to whatever the Home Page setting is, and despite me resetting this to Google constantly, every 10-20 mins it gets reset back to the corporate intranet, i assume by the group policy.
