no, not at all

the default homepage is set to be "Blank"

hehe.

this whole process manifests itself as:

open ie -- then it goes to :http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=54834 --

then redirect to: http://runonce.msn.com/runonce2.aspx

the latter reqires to me check some ie setting options and requires me to check "join ms experience..."

every time after the ie temperory contents are cleared ie goes to this page

annoying

thanks

I would like to thank the person mentioned above for setting me on the right track to fixing my issue, but would like to add that this did not fix my problem.... BUT INSTEAD IT CAUSED ME TO FIND AN ANSWER TO THE PROBLEM.

If you open the registry editor by going to the start menu and then choosing run, then type in regedit, then you may be able to fix the problem as I did.

Fist, locate the key [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main] .

Second, on the right side of the screen locate the subkey [RunOnceHasShown] .

Third, click on the subkey mentioned in step 2 and change the value from 0 to 1 .

Fourth, close regedit and restart IE.

:thumbup I HOPE THIS FIXES YOUR PROBLEM AS IT DID MINE!!! :thumbup

Using the IE7 final, the last message posted does not fix the problem listed.

After a little playing, I did find the solution to the problem. It does require that you make the change recommended in the last post (Or in my case, it did not exist, so I had to create the DWORD).

IN ADDITION to what the last post recommends, you should also create the following DWORD in HKCU>Software>Microsoft>Internet Explorer>Main:

RunOnceComplete

Set it to 1

This FIXED it for me! Hopefully this will fix it for everyone else having the same problem.

Good luck!

I installed last nights release today. Had a problem loading the RUNONCE page. After hanging for 5 minutes or more, the page finally loaded. I recorded two registry keys that was created. I closed IE7 and reopened and the RUNONCE page did not attempt to load. I removed the registry keys and the RUNONCE page attempted to load.

I did a Google search and could not find this resolution anywhere, hope this helps somebody.

To prevent RunOnce from loading.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
"RunOnceComplete"=dword:00000001
"RunOnceHasShown"=dword:00000001

Also posted in my Tips and Tricks - Who would have thought that after two years that Microsoft has not corrected this problem. I have updated scripts using several appliations and created a couple of executables for those who do not want to manually edit their registry.

I copy and pasted the far below from your site:

Let me know if this is what I'm suppose to do.

Go into my registry

Click on: HKEY_CURRENT_USER

Click on : Software (folder)

Click on: Microsoft (folder)

Click on: Internet Explorer (folder) then last but not least

Click on: Main (folder) and manually type in the Main (folder)

"RunOnceComplete"=dword:00000001

"RunOnceHasShown"=dword:00000001

Not knowing much about computers from your instructions below that's what I would do. Is that right??

I really want this problem fixed sooooooo bad it's driving me to well I'd rather not say.......

Question: Internet Explorer 7 Gold RunOnce Removal Added: 10/19/2006

Category: Tips & Tricks Views: 306

Rating: (4.7) By: 3 users

Answer:

Microsoft Windows Internet Explorer 7

Version: 7.0.5730.11CO

Update Versions: 0

The annoying Runonce linking to runonce.msn.com/runonce2.aspx either fails to start or you do not want it to start.

There is no reasonable explaination as to the purpose of this link. All settings may be changed within the installation of itself without linking to Microsoft.

I have found solutions for IE 7 Beta 2 and other versions which included registry keys that are not required for the Gold release and I discovered a key that is required, not mentioned anywhere else.

To bypass IE7 Runonce

Create this registry file

----RunOnceDone.reg---------

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]

"RunOnceComplete"=dword:00000001

"RunOnceHasShown"=dword:00000001

I would like to confirm this, RunOnce* is NOT a value under HKLM - it only exisits under HKCU. My system doesn't have a problem, but for those who do:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
"RunOnceComplete"=dword:00000001
"RunOnceHasShown"=dword:0000000

Save as IE7FIX.REG and run it.

For those who manually open Regedit and are not familiar with it - KEYS are FOLDERS, and the things inside the Keys are the VALUES (whereas normally files are inside values). Each value contains DATA. For instance:

"HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main" is a KEY.

"RunOnceComplete" is a VALUE.

"dword:00000001" is DATA.

You could also do this with a batch (.CMD or .BAT) file:

REG ADD "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main" /V "RunOnceComplete" /T REG_DWORD /D 1 /F

REG ADD "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main" /V "RunOnceHasShown" /T REG_DWORD /D 1 /F

Also more info on that here =

Note: If your problem continues to the point that you feel that you need help from HJT, it is strongly suggested that you do not use a "Do it yourself" type online logreader such as http://www.hijackthis.de/en

but that you ask that your HJT log be read by an expert at one of these sites:
