Nuisance Tab

Recently bought a new ACER laptop. Whenever I use I Explorer an additional tab auto opens with the Global website. Its distracting and a b....y nuisance. Any ideas how to stop it?

Look at the home page setting in IE.

Tools - Internet Options

Several sites may be in the home page setting, which open in tabs.

If it's this - remove the Acer address.

I've never been able to get additional home pages to work. I assumed they should all open in tabs when you start IE. But they don't, only the first one.

I just treid it (in IE, which I don't normally use) and it works for me.

Just enter on a new line, the web address in the full form http:// etc.

Thanks for help. Yes there were to http addresses in the Home Page list. Deleted ACER and all OK now.
