New Tabs open Blank

#1
Aloha all. Minor issue, but annoying...Vista Home Premium, IE7. When I open
a new tab I get the Blank Tab page. I have checked the Internet Tools item
for Open Home Page instead of a Blank page, but no joy. How can I get a new
tab to open to my home page...like I checked?
Thanks all!

I already did that, and the new tab still comes up blank. Any other ideas?
This worked fine under XP, but isn't working under Vista.

Homepage is set to Yahoo. When I open IE, it opens to Yahoo, but when I open
a new tab, it opens blank (Vista Home Premium).
Thanks.

When the blank page opens, check the box that says something like "Don't
show this again"

He has. In this instance, it's *actually* called "I have checked the
Internet Tools item ...".

So is there no way to open a new tab to the home page in Visa Home Premium?
I could do this in XP no problem.
Thanks.
