Homepage - about:blank?

January 21, 2005 at 14:36:14
Specs: xp, pentium 4

My IE homepage keeps resetting itself to about:blank, a crappy search engine. If I change my homepage to google, it starts loading but then quickly goes back to about:blank and resets itself as my homepage. What gives?
P.S. I ran updated spybot/adaware/CWShredder with no results and did not disable homepage.

Hi Josh. Yeah, I have been using it on both machines since XpUser posted it. Seems to work great but don't know how long it will be free.
