Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
Good answer. Just not to the question that was actually asked. The real reason the questioner's MSN homepage is now called "Preview MSN" and has a white background is not hard to deduce: MSN are presumably having a redesign, and are testing out the new design on a random selection of people. A quick google confirms this (the new design is also available to others at msn.com/preview.aspx). There's probably a setting somewhere that lets people who have been switched over go back to the old design, until the switchover completes.
Yes, I was going to say the same thing as the above poster. The real reason is because of a future redesign which I have been forced to look at, too. I can't figure out how to get out of the preview version and I hope they don't use this redesign in the future as, in my opinion, it sucks.
MSN has hijacked my home page. I have done what you have outlined above but when I hit the homepage icon, it returns to MSN

The msn.com page has changed and there seems to be no way to revert back to the original of before Nov.13th. You can use the customization and make the selection mymsn.com and then rearrange the page to suit you - but this is still not the same as the original. Why does microsoft impose this on people without giving a choice? Everyone I know just HATES the new version of msn.com. Is there a way to revert to the page as it was before Nov. 13th?
Hey, switch to iGoogle.
I entered uk.yahoo.com into IE8 & it brought up m.uk.yahoo.com. I followed your instrucions & clicked on Use Current, followed by clicking OK. I also changed the small browser window at top-right of IE8 from Microsoft to Google. Next time I brought up IE8, up came the old uk.msn.com/?ocid=iefvrt & the browser window again showed Microsoft instead of Google.
When in Yahoo! I have more than once clicked on "Make Y! your homepage" which offers uk.yahoo.com "as your only home page", but next time I bring up IE8, I'm back with msn.com.
This homepage hijacking happened several months ago. At the time I was using MS Windows Dedender, & I have since switched to Malwarebytes, but neither has picked up the unwanted msn homepage & browser. I have run a full scan of MS Malicious S/W Removal tool which didn't detect anything.
However, when I click on Mozilla Firefox,up comes m.yahoo.com and Google in the browser window.
i cannot get "google advanced page" to remain as my honme page; it keeps reverting back to the normal GOOGLE page (with its goofy mouse-over highlights, etc).
I've selected their ADVANCED search, set it as the home page, it retains it for a couple time, then later it goes back to www.google.com
it is only on my VISTA tablet machine; my othe macchines seem to retain the settings
You are my TOP MAN. I have been messing about for the last couple of hours to no avail. Ten minuets after reading your notes, HEY PRESTO, bring out the champagne, you have solved my problems. HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all over the water, from all us LIMEYS.
I do not like the glaring white..I am not able to get my local weather to show up as before and I like the old format much better..
I am beginning to lok at other home pages.
