The question came up the other day where someone was having a problem with Internet Explorer . Their sequenced version of Internet Explorer (which was being pulled into the package) was not using there default web/homepage rather than the one set within the virtual environment.
Well what was happening was the value for that default webpage got set in the sequencer and was not falling the value down to the base operating system.
The solution was to Open the sequence and just delete the VALUE containing the home page. Virtual Internet Explorer should then fall through and read the local home page setting.
The value just so happen to be;
Start Page REG_SZ http://www.live.com/
You could even completely delete the Main key… (if the settings are not required!)
