Does anybody know how to change the default homepage in IE? I'd love to have it go straight to Google instead of T-Mobile's search page.

Never mind, I figured it out. It's just in the registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\CHome\CLinks, and you have to change the Page1 ACTIONURL to ":MSPIE; google.com"

Actually the homepage is identified here: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\AboutURLs\home_0409. There it identifies what to open.

Yeah, that works better. The other way makes it so it returns to the homepage everytime I click on it. Thanks!

You could also use Paul's cab file available over here: http://www.modaco.co...arch-to-Google/

It keeps the homepage the same in ie but when you search, it searches google instead of windows live. Obviously, that's only for searching google though and you'd have to use the above oted method to change the homepage to something else.
