    I have removed all homepages and added just one page to be my homepage. But
    IE still opens the IE8 homepage every time I open IE8. How do I make it stop
    opening the IE8 homepage and only open my homepage?

    What I have found useful is to open IE8 to the page which I wish to designate
    as my home page (it should be the only tab I have open), then in the IE8 menu
    I go to Tools/Internet Options/General tab and under the "Home Page section"
    at the top of that tab I click on "Use Current" . That URL should be the only
    one that appears in the window on the first line. Then I click OK and that
    does it for me when I reopen. I hope that helps.

    Don't know whether you're seeing the "Runonce" configuration page or the
    "IE8 get it now" page, but there's a solution for both at Scroll down to "Problem: IE
    always goes to... "
    Hope this helps,
