Windows 7: click new tab and it comes up blank page rather than first home page

I'm not sure who you are replying to, what directions you are trying to follow, or what all you have tried to fix this.

From what i can tell reading this thread:
  • It sounds like you are trying to use the suggestion to modify the registry to fix your problem.
  • The suggested registry changes are from some other thread (not in Seven Forums) posted by a PC manufacturer employee.
In post #22 and post #26 the solution is to revert back to IE8.
Have you tried that?

You are replying to an old thread started by someone else that is marked as solved.
You probably will get more help if you start your own thread.

Hope this helps,
