No problem.
just went into Tools / Internet Options and clicked on "Use Blank"
One possibility - are you using Lavasoft Ad-Aware because that can block changes

Got to agree Chilly, Firefox is the way to go.

However, just tried IE7 and home page changed OK. It's probably worth scanning for Spyware and Viruses - just in case.

My suggestion would be Safari or Firefox on Mac OS X

Otherwise try this, you can set more than one home page

1. Click the Tools Menu
2. Click Internet Options
3. Click the General Tab
4. Type in or paste an URL that you want to use as your home page in the Home Page section.
5. Hit ENTER and type in another URL
6. Repeat until you have all the ones you want
7. Click OK
8. Close and Restart your browser to see them all open.
