    I open up IE8 and click on the new web page tab and now the screen is totally
    different than what it was like yesterday

    today the new web page comes up with:
    back ground is like a baby blue color and the following words:
    What do you want to do next?

    Reopen closed tabs Browse with InPrivate

    Reopen Last Browsing Session Open in InPrivate Browsing window


    Use an Accelerator

    show copied text

    etc... mostly google stuff (Google Finance, Google maps, google news, google
    translate, seach with google video, gmail, define with google dictionary,
    blogger)underneather Use an Accelerator

    last line says....
    Learn more about tabs and tab shortcuts, accelerators and InPrivate Browsing.

    i what am use to and want back is:
    the websites that i last visited in icon form.

    It is not just on one computer it is on 3 computers that i know of.
    i have run Malwarebytes on all three systems and cleaned up what ever
    malware was there, ran Spybot Search and Destroy, Ad-Aware, Glary Utilites
    and cleanned up. Ran them in normal mode and also in Safe mode and I am still
    getting this crappy new tab window. HELP PLEASE. I am going home in a
    little bit to see if my home computer is the same way.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    Thanks,

    Hi,
    It sounds like you were using the Google new tab page which provided
    thumbnails of recently visited pages. I see at
    http://www.google.com/support/toolbar/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=115561 that
    the new tab feature (on Internet Explorer) has been retired. Your Google
    toolbar(s) may have lost the new tab page or parts of it because of an
    automatic update.

    That Google support page mentions that the new tab page is still available
    for Firefox and on Chrome.

    Hope this helps,
