    to the home page you prefer under that key, such as

    A very good tip Reghakr! I remember this happening all the time when IE 7 first came out.. I had downloaded some stupid Audio ripper as well actually and it kept changing the homepage on me no matter what I tried.. I think I ended up having to do something just like what you've described here actually.. ;) Kudos my friend! :)
