Problem when opening IE7

When I open IE7, rather than going to the homepage I have set in Internet Options, the following web address comes up (every time):
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=74005

What's up?

Thanks.

Http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=74005 is a default home page for IE.
So when you change your Home page on Internet Option Home page are you sure you have type correct address (e.g. http://www.google.com/) and press OK.

Make google my homepage


Hi Douglas,
Open your internet browser and open Internet Options by selecting Tools - Internet Options. Then select the General tab. Within this tab you will be able to type in the google web address and then select apply or ok. This should have google now saved as your homepage.

If this doesnt work, open your internet search engine, type in google and open the homepage. Then follow the instructions as above but this time when you enter the General tab, you will see the option to Use Current Pages. Select this button and then again hit ok or apply.
