    I, often run a program called..."Advanced System Optimizer" wherein I,
    amongst other diagnostic devices, I delete my cookies....which causes My
    Homepage to become 'blank.'

    Does anyone know the name of the cookie that I do not have to delete in
    order to maintain my homepage as MSN.com?

    Thank you,

    FLKulchar

    Your homepage is not stored in a cookie. It is a registry entry.

    The HomePage is not blank because the cookies are reset. It's blank because
    you have checked a box that resets IE to the default settings.

    Click TOOLS>INTERNET OPTIONS, and set your homepage(s) as you want them,
    then when you use the optimizer, do not select the Reset IE to Default
    checkbox.

    I delete all cookies and Temporary Internet files every time I close IE, and
    my homepage(s) are never affected. I'm not sure, but I think this should
    keep you from needing the optimizer. The downside is that IE does not
    remember where I live, so my weather and Local News is not local to me until
    I re-enter my ZIP Code after restarting IE.
