    I haven't read the other replies to this but ummm, I've had that problem before and when I went to tools, internet settings and I reset the defaults and it fixed it in no time.
    make sure you click apply before x-ing out or pressing okay. And if your address bar doesn't come up usually you can left click it and it will give you the option of showing and hiding different things.

    I hope I could help!

    Check for spyware. That's a frequent cause of a hijacked homepage.

    I finally solved my problems after tryng all the spywares and scanning my computer for viruses and hi jackers non of them really solved the prob for me, and for the other guy who replied to my prob, well at first those are the stuff I did and it didn't work, my homepage always returned to the blank page no matter how I saved my settings.. but tnx for the effort!:)
    Anyway what I did was do a system restore and evrything went back to normal.. after almost 10hrs of thinking of what to do!:D
    For others having the same prob like mine I hope it would work for you also!
    Again tnx for the help;)
