Yeah, I was just looking for ways to get rid of this start page for Internet Explorer... used Adaware like 5 times and scanned my hard drive... bummer.

Any takers?

go to startmenu

run 'regedit'


find under local machine / software / IE / then hunt around...

there is a value somewehre in there that is redirecting ur startpage......
or under Local User .slash software slash IE then hunt around

slash button not working at the moment..


try going to 'Tools' then options from within IE... then change the startpage.. thought i would include that just incase...

Are the hand gestures you freaks are talking about the middle fingered hand when going over a link, because if it is I want to know where I can find it.
