IE occasionally loses the homepage setting and it goes to "about blank". I found a fix on a forum that explained how to edit the start page key in the registry. This has worked OK for me a couple of times but since 8.1 upgrade the registry will not accept any changes. Tried following the permissions change as in http://www.eightforums.com/general-...u-make-changes-thge-registry-windows-8-a.html but still not accepting the new value. May be a coincidence with the upgrade but it's worked before. Have done a system scan to check for malware etc and nothing showing (Bitdefender). Any ideas?
