IE 6 Homepage un-changeable.

I own an Acer Aspire 5100-3583. I run windows XP SP2.
Okay....I recently installed IE 7. I hated it. I rolled it back to IE 6 and now my homepage is not changeable. I've always had my homepage as "about:blank" because that's how I like it. Now, no matter what site I try putting in under internet options, be it google, youtube, myspace, or anything for that matter, it's automatically changed back to this:
Which takes me to MSN.com. I don't WANT it to be msn.com. I WANT it to be about:blank. What the &%#@$^* is going on with my internet options??
I just ran ad-aware SE and it found 12 tracking cookies, which I deleted. I'm running Norton AntiVirus 2006 right now, 90077 files scanned, no virus threats or spyware threats.
I've tried, under internet options, to "use blank" then it "apply" then "ok". but when I press the home button, I get the redirect page and up pops MSN.com.
I've tried going to "about:blank" in my browser page and selecting "Use current" in internet options. then "apply" and "ok". again, I'm redirected to MSN.com. Does microsoft hate me for rolling back or something? I just want a blank webpage as my homepage. What on EARTH is going on????????
