    Default Win XP SP3

    I slipstreamed SP3 and IE 7 to my XP Pro CD. It works fine except that every time when I load IE 7, it tries to load this page: http://www.msn.com/404.aspx?aspxerrorpath=runonce2.aspx.

    and then the following error pops up:

    "The page you have requested cannot be found."

    I've changed the homepage to : www.google.com but it just doesn't load my homepage when I launch IE. I could however, go to my homepage after that. What happened?

    Problems with the first run page

    Sometimes the first run page reappears. Possible causes of this problem are:

    1) The Welcome page does not load completely for whatever reason.

    2) Scripting has been disabled (note: blocking ActiveX does not cause this problem)

    In such circumstances, the DWORD "RunOnceHasShown" may not be created in the following registry key, or it may not be set to a value of 1.

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\RunOnceHasShown

    If your system is stuck at the initial IE7 welcome page, shut down IE, check for the existence of the RunOnceHasShown DWORD and set it to a value of 1.

    Also, ensure that the following key is set to 1:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\RunOnceComplete
    copy the following and paste into a notepad file, then save it and change the .txt extension to a .reg and it will do it for you if you want

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
    
    "RunOnceHasShown"=dword:00000001
    
    "SearchMigrated"=dword:00000001
    
    "RunOnceComplete"=dword:00000001
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
    
    "Search Page"="http://www.google.co.nz"

    "Search Page"="http://www.google.co.nz"
    Just check and found that "RunOnceHasShown" is NOT present.

    How do I add it?

    I think that should be _CURRENT_USER rather than _LOCAL_MACHINE

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
    
    "RunOnceHasShown"=dword:00000001
    
    "SearchMigrated"=dword:00000001
    
    "RunOnceComplete"=dword:00000001
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
    
    "Search Page"="http://www.google.co.nz"

    then change the .txt extension to .reg and double click it
