    Internet Explorer Homepage

    Internet explorer always opens up to the IE8 upgrade page as the homepage. We have our organization's homepage set as the homepage through Group Policy and I see it set under the Options in IE, as well as in the registry. Is there anyway to stop the IE8 upgrade page from showing up everytime? Thanks!

    as you were upgrading Internet Explorer have you looked for new admin templates for the server

    just thought i would ask because i have made that mistake looking for a policy that does not exist due to the admin tempate being for an older version of Internet Explorer.
