When opening a new tab,my "About:Tabs" page has been hijacked
I'm running IE8 with Vista home premium.
I recently loaded WinAmp which I'm happy with.
I'm not happy, however, with the fact that it has replaced the "About:Tabs" page provided with IE8 with a page from http://toolbar.aol.com. It basically redirects my browser to this site, gives me a useless page and loses me the useful browser session recovery
options which the default page gives.
I can reset the page to "About:Blank" and to my homepages using tools/options/tabs/settings, but I want new tabs to have the original IE8 page.
This application has obviously changed the address somewhere so how can I change it back?

Please try the following; it has to do with modifying the registry so be careful:
Modifying REGISTRY settings incorrectly can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from booting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the configuring of REGISTRY settings can be solved. Modifications of these
