    Err is it not User Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates >Windows Components > Internet Explorer ? or is that 2003 version. Play testing an 08 server atm, but we run 03, So get confused sometimes.

    User Configuration > Policies > Windows Settings > Internet Explorer Maintenance > URLs > Important URLs

    *Customize Home Page URL

    There is another, cunningly hidden place for this - User Configuration / Policies / Administrative Templates / Windows Components / Internet Explorer / Disable changing home page settings *Enter URL here*

    When this is enabled, it overrides whatever other settings you try to force through GP. Drove me crazy finding it!

    Handy hint I play with: grab the MS spreadsheets with the GP layouts, then you can use the find function for the common word(s), I've used that when i though there was something but couldn't quiet remember where.
