In our computer repair store we have a new install of windows 7 home premium from the Toshiba install disk and have managed to change the start/home page on chrome. But can't seem to change it in IE

I used internet options changed the page, and also tried the reset on the advanced tab.

I searched the url in the registry and changed them (3 locations)

Disabled the Toshiba media plug-in

Searched google and everyone says the same as above.

I also checked the HOSTS file under windows folder...

Are you sure you don't have a third party mini app installed on your computer that could affect the home page of your browser, IE?
Try returning to IE 10 and check if that would work for you.
To do this press on the Start and search for "View installed updates". Under your Microsoft Updates you should see your Internet Explorer update with version 11.
Delete it and reboot your computer. This should return you to version 10.
Try changing your home page on IE 10 and check what it gives. If that works then you either keep IE 10 either try update again to 11 and check it out again.
If this doesn't work then it could be something on the registry.

Wow.. I used to promote this ... and it worked!

Advanced System Care v7 > Toolbox > IE Helper > IE Settings

I clicked the check-box and told it to reset to default. It did change to MSN.com... but then an ASC message box popped up and said that the url was being managed and do I want to modify the URL. I clicked "modify" and now IE is set to MSN.com
