I am a brand new owner of a PC -- believe it or not. Mine is a Dell Inspiron 530, Windows Vista Home Premium, 64 bit with Internet Explorer 7.0 at present (though Microsoft keeps trying to upgrade me to IE 8, but Dell says it will not work w/o Windows 8 -- any opinions on this matter).
My concern is that my home page keeps defaulting to the blank igoogle home page. The address of my home page is www.google.com/ig?h=en, a page with gadgets one specially sets for one's own interest. I would like to know how to avoid spending time setting and resetting these gadgets, especially after running CCleaner. I would like to set them and have them remain intact unless I decide to change the face of this home page. I followed the first advice I received to move the cookie that I assume belongs to my home page, google.com, to the box for cookies to keep. Also, in my browser, the bottom bar with the icons from Home to Tools, the address of my google home page is set under Internet Options under Tools.
What I do not understand is why under the wrench icon on the Google toolbar, under Options, then Search, I cannot activate the choice that says "Enable Google as my Home Page."
So, if anyone wanted more details from me, are these enough?
Did someone say something about a "bug?" If so, what bug, and why do you think one is there, or where?
