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.

If you can't find the 'Tools' menu, hold down alt and press t

Cannot seem to make Explorer my home page


Explorer needs to be told what to use for its home page, and if you want to use IT as a Home Page it STILL needs a Home Page (or Blank page) set. Click Tools (in IE), then Internet Options, and decide what page to use as your Home Page. It MUST be declared here.

Blank page when opening a new tab in IE 8. I reset advanced options, didn't work. Do I need to check a box in there


Access the Internet Options dialog box. If the menu bar is visible, you can select "Tools" - "Internet Options".

If the Command Bar is visible, click the "Tools" button and select "Internet Options". If neither are available, try typing Alt + T then O.

When the "Internet Options" dialog box appears, underneath "Tabs", click the "Settings" button.

The "Tabbed Browsing Settings" dialog box appears. Underneath "When a new tab is opened, open" click the pull-down and choose from any one of the following options:
  • * A blank page
  • * The new tab page
  • * Your first home page
Click "OK" on the dialog boxes to store your settings.

On yahoo page all pictures are cover with red


hi try this:
Changing the home page

The home page can be anything you want to see when you first start Internet
Explorer. Here’s how to set the home page to something special or to nothing
at all:
1. Start IE.
That’s Internet Explorer, in case you were silly and skipped reading this
chapter’s introduction.
2. Visit the Web page you want as your home page.
For example, visit Yahoo! or my own Web page, www.wambooli.com/.
Displaying that Web page now makes choosing it as your home page
much easier.
3. Choose Tools- Internet Options.
You set the home page in the Internet Options dialog box, in the top part
of the General tab, as shown in Figure 18-1.
You have three choices:
Use Current: Choose the current page as the home page. You
notice that the current page’s address appears in the box.
Use Default: This choice would be the Microsoft preference, which
is probably the MSN home page.
Use Blank: This option tells IE to start with a blank page — an item
popular with many folks.
4. Select whichever option you want.
For example, to switch to the page you were viewing, click the Use
Current button.
5. Click OK.
Now, that page is the first thing you see when you start IE.
These steps should reset your home page, but the change may not be for
good, as the following subsections demonstrate.

Default internet explorer home page


Here are some things you can try. It sounds like you have picked up a snoop and some can go as deep as your system registries.
In IE go to the Tools>Internet Options>Programs>Manage Add-ons and see if there is any reference to that site there. If not there is a last resort possible fix, once again Tools>internet Options>Advanced then press reset at the bottom, this will set the browser back to new.

Hope this helps...
