The "My.MSN.com" homepage that I've been using forever has been discontinued by MS. I can go to MSN.com and sign-in to the "new" MSN customized page - which I don't care for. However, I decided to go with the flow and change to the new one. I clicked on the "Make MSN my homepage" choice at the top of the page, but, then clicked on the Home button icon in IE8 and it still goes to the old (blank) My.MSN.com page. I opened Internet options to change the homepage, but the box for typing in URL's doesn't work, nor do any of the three buttons below the entry box work. I have WinPatrol running and opened the program, but I don't see any selection on any of the tabs that block/unblock changing the homepage in IE. I've gone into Administrative Tools/Local Security Policy to see if any policies applied to IE, but didn't see anything that obviously controlled IE.
Even though I am the Administrator user on this PC, I opened a new IE window using the right-click "Run as Administrator" and opened Internet options, but it is the same as before - won't allow a URL to be typed in, nor do any of the buttons work.
Other than WinPatrol, I have MSE and Windows Firewall running all the time and that's all. I also have MalwareBytes, but only run on demand, and SpywareBlaster.
What am I overlooking here?
