    i'm still setting up an old dimension 4700 for my brother who had found it
    in the trash. (he only knows how to turn them on or off) i was able to add a
    sata hard drive, xp pro and total memory of 1.5g; it runs great.
    i have verizon fios and have set up a wireless connection from mine to his.
    we are home networked and all is working well.

    i set his home page to google, ie7.
    when i load ie7, it loads google fine, then proceeds to load something else.
    i can close the additional page that it opened and i'm back at the home
    page. it doesn't seem to be the same site that loads after the home page,
    and it only happens when i first open up ie7. this doesn't occur with my
    pc, just steves.

    anyone know why this is happening? does having google as home page have
    anything to do with it?
    how do i get the home page and only that page to load?

    i ran ad-aware and spybot, and did a scan with and updated avg antivirus and
    didn't find any problems. i'm using zonealarm as firewall.

    What are the URL's? Google should be What is
    the URL of other page that IE7 takes the computer? And the final URL?

    IE7 allows MULTIPLE home page tabs. See the little down arrow left of the
    "home" button? Click that. You should be able to figure it out from there.

    that little arrow did the trick. i was able to make the intended page, the
    only page;
