You may have a horked (dirty; bad; flawed) install of IE7. I suggest that
1. Uninstall IE7 (which automatically returns you to IE6) EXACTLY per
http://www.ie-vista.com/kbase2.html [Only use the Command
%windir%\ie7\spuninst\spuninst.exe if you cannot uninstall via Add/Remove
2a. Uninstall all toolbars and third-party Windows Themes (including Window
2b. Disable all Norton Add-ons, if applicable.
3. Reinstall IE7 EXACTLY per
http://www.ie-vista.com/known_issues.html#pre-install <= Steps #1-8, #10 &
#11; take note of #12, then STOP!
NB: Use http://www.microsoft.com/windows/downloads/default.mspx as the
installation source, not Automatic/Windows Update.
Or Direct Download link:
Tip: Save the installer to your desktop, do not Run it.
4. IMMEDIATELY go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com and install any
critical updates offered. If a "Root Certificates" update is listed in the
Optional category, you might install it, too, to take full advantage of
IE7's additional security.

I have tried this below AND everything else I can find and I cannot get my home page back at all. Please help -- anyone that can read this.

I finally managed to get rid of this PEST! It seems to be some sort of a worm or BOT. I simply ran SPY BOT and then Ad Aware ... two great free programs. Both of them found a new program that had been installed (via email is my guess) and when they removed them, all was well... my normal home page opened up just fine...
I regret that I did not note the names of these virus programs, but removing them did the trick. I do so hope this helps you too...
