Have you had a look at Internet Options in Control Panel. This allows you to change & set up various options that might suit you. You can also set your home page choice as well.

Hi Everyone, I had this a few months ago when I reinstalled, and I unchecked most of the offerings apart

from a couple of things, then clicked install now, and after that finished just changed the

homepage and it was gone. I hope this helps.

I forgot to mention before, I was reading about this at the time I reinstalled, and I read that IE11 has not

completely installed until you do the above step.

Hi VXER, On the left click on the plus sign so it changes to a minus for the extras that you do not wish to

install. Everyone is different. I did not install free anti-virus as I have my own, or Adobe as I do not use

Adobe. The only things I left ticked were Windows Firewall and Windows Update. I hope this makes sense.
