Everytime I opened a new tab in wondows explorer - a new page would appera and on that page was a selection of the websites we used most....

Then a dc did something - ahh

Now older dc and I can only get a blank plage to appear with a search engine box - but we want it back how it used to be cos we are lazy

I have been into tolls and settings and can cjange to blank page to home page - but not how it used to be sob

Do you have Google toolbar/ When I use IE (which isn't often) the 'most visited area' is a Google toolbar function.
To re enable it if it's been accidentally deactivated, click the Toolbar's spanner icon; on the Search tab, select the 'Enable the Google new tab page' checkbox.
Click Save.
If it's the Google toolbar itself that's been disabled, right click on the bar at the top & put a tick in Google toolbar.
