Changing IE main page?

Good morning!

Or rather not, it is really raining heavily here!

Anyway, I have committed a real stupid. I installed an 'Ashampoo' programme and I did not notice that it changed the page I log onto when I click on the internet. It is now something that looks very like - but much smaller than - Google but I wish to have my Tiscali/TalkTalk page back! Yes I know I am sad but I have had a tiscali address for many years and I quite like it for all the problems I have with it. I thin I could do a roll back to, say, yesterday but I have just changed/cleaned my registry and I don't want ( or rather would not ) to have to do it again. Anyway any help/advice/information to correct my error would be very much appreciated! Many thanks in advance.

In IE9, press tool button (a yellow cog wheel top right in toolbar). Select internet options and put in the default you want in the home page section.

Housten I think you right click in the right hand column under Likes # 0 and a green tick appears. Glad it's sorted!

john bunyan,

All I can say is : Not half as much as me! I can assure you. I tried to do as you suggested and was told I couldn't vote for myself! Anyway I hope someone sees this who knows how I can mark this as resolved and lets me know. I think it would, probably, be quite useful!!!!??

Click in right-hand column below the grey thumbs-up sign. A green tick should then appear.

PS - I meant to add, along-side what you decide is your best answer.

To resolve the thread click on one of the grey tick marks to the right of your posting - it will turn green (that's it).
