Harry,

 

I have seen this before where the the gpo gets enabled on the local pc
and then when you simply "uncheck" the gpo, the local pc keeps the
setting.  Try setting the gpo to disabled and see if that doesn't fix
the issue for you.

Thanks,

Hey Derek, Here goes a more detailed summary of steps i took:

1: management wanted me to set a default homepage
2: set it using IE Mainetnance\URLS\Default Home Page
3: MGNMT then said to remove that setting so people can configure and
keep
what they please
4: i simply deleted that homepage entry and unchecked that option in the
ie
maintenance.
5: users with IE keep having their default homepage changed even after
they
manually set it. i.e. user opens IE with default of google.com. they
manually
change page to msn.com and about 10 minutes later the default page is
google.
com instead of msn.com. This is happening across the board sporadically.

i RSOP'd the machines that this is occurring on, including mine, and
don't
see an entry for default homepage. none of the gpo's in my domain have
the
default homepage option configured.


You can follow a post i started at thsi site, but the resolution
corrected didn't work or maybe i didn't apply it correctly.

This is driving me and everyone nuts!

I am running win2k3 standard at the highest functional level. I adjusted
the
default domain policy ( User Conf\Windows Settings\Inet Exp Main\URLS)
to set the default home page. Management, then informed
me to get ride of this setting, so i removed/uncheckec the URL setting
it but now the default homepage
for most, if not all, clients keeps changing. If the client manually
changes the webpage to their personal preference, it changes back!!

I'll manually set the homepage, after 30 minutes or even less, it will
change
back to the computers default.

any ideas ?
