IE is a thug!

Just installed system for a friend, including Internet Explorer. Google is set as home page. Everytime IE starts it opens MSN/Hotmail/Livesearch page.
Can't get rid of it. Anyone know how, please?

Dont just click away - read the screen! :-)

That MS being helpful; those options were on the install IE8 default option that you accepted.
I did not accept them and went for the advanced option route where you can opt out.

Sorry dont know how to get rid of them :-(

Uninstall IE8 with click here

During the un-install process you may be asked if you want to re-start your computer, DO NOT re-start at this point, let Revo continue. You will eventually get the option to Select All and to Delete - DO SO. You will be given the same options a second time, again DO SO, do not be picky, just accept all that Revo chooses.
After clicking on Finish, re-start your computer.

Then re-install IE8 (if you must, personally I prefer IE7 which is more stable at this time), taking note of wiz-king's comments above.
