Modification of the registry can be EXTREMELY dangerous if you do not know exactly what you are doing so follow the steps that are listed below EXACTLY. if you cannot preform some of these steps or if you have ANY questions please ask BEFORE proceeding.
Backing Up Your Registry
- Go Here and download ERUNT
(ERUNT (Emergency Recovery Utility NT) is a free program that allows you to keep a complete backup of your registry and restore it when needed.)
- Install ERUNT by following the prompts
(use the default install settings but say no to the portion that asks you to add ERUNT to the start-up folder, if you like you can enable this option later)
- Start ERUNT
(either by double clicking on the desktop icon or choosing to start the program at the end of the setup)
- Choose a location for the backup
(the default location is C:\WINDOWS\ERDNT which is acceptable).
- Make sure that at least the first two check boxes are ticked
- Press OK
- Press YES to create the folder.
Just take a look at the following and see if they match:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel]
Let me know if you would feel comfortable modifying these if they don't match.

As for my problem, I decided to search the registry for the name of my ISP portal URL and lo and behold, I found it in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Internet Explorer/Main
I changed a few references there and a couple more in
HKEY_USERS... something or other...
and the problem is resolved.

If you knew what you were doing then that's very nice. If you didn't and by chance managed to solve the problem then you are lucky. You could end up with a real mess. You could just as well approach your isp and fix the problem in five minutes.
