    You don't give us much to work with. Have you tried re-typing the URL for your homepage> Tools> Internet Options> General tab> Homepage section> Use Current?

    Have you also deleted the temporary internet files and Cookies? Where are you being redirected to?

    Does that restore the homepage? Does it stay on the browser?

    I have notices that occasionally a homepage, especially one that has been customized might have a small code change that will prevent it from launching without incident. Deleting the 'tif' and resetting it usually works if this is the cause.

    This redirect looks to push me to HRENA.COM before the redirect occurs.
