Could you clarify this a little? What page would you like to set as your home page?

If you go to Tools -> Internet Options, you should be able to enter your home page there.

Win internet explorer not responding; so i have toshut down the program & start over. how do i fix this

Usually it is caused by a failing extension or an add-on to your internet explorer. Sometimes, it is caused by the settings as well that some websites tries to add on your internet explorer. you can either reset the entire internet explorer or just put the default settings back. here's what you need to do: -open your internet explorer -click on tools -select internet options -go to the advance tab -select whether you want to reset default settings or reset the entire IE. (I suggest trying the reset default settings first because resetting the IE will delete your favorites / bookmarks as well). -re open IE and see the changes
hope this helps.

Internet explorer (no add ons)

Internet Explorer (no adds ons) is a second browser installed with sp3 when you agree to upgrade to IE 7. It allows you to safe surf without any plug-ins like flash or other browser helpers. Its possible you accidently set it to be the default. Try to check which is loading and default and change as ncessary in ie options.
