In IE6 is you put the homepage as FILE:///C:\ when you open IE6 it shows the root directory and folders of drive C the hard drive.

If you try to set the homepage in IE7 beta as FILE:///C:\ then it rejects this and will not axccpet it as a page.
All other pages eg HTTP:..... or WWW. will work and the homepage is not hijacked as I have very high anti spyware etc and windows defender. it is not the preventiion that is stopping it work either!

Do you or anyone know what needs to be entered to make IE7 open on the root directory. About blank or google are not my best choices!
Thanks

First, it's a bad idea--Microsoft removed the ability by default in IE--the lowest possible security setting in ie7 appears to be MEDIUM

You may have some luck by choosing custom and altering the settings under secruity
