Or type your home address into the address bar and when it shows.Drag the Icon on the left hand side of the address bar to the little house and drop it in there,It should then ask you if you want to make that your home page.click yes.

Ive done all the above.

It is only when opening IE that it takes me to the microsoft page.
I can then click on the little house, and i get taken to my proper home page.

Even when you drag and drop the icon into the house does it not say do want to use it as your home page.

Yes - it asks me if i want to use it as my homepage. I click on yes.
I then closed down IE, and when I reopened it, i was taken straight to the microsoft download page
