IE - Blank page on new tab

You have  masterfully designed custom home page for your Internet Explorer (IE).  All of a sudden, only first tab displays your home page.  All other new tabs in IE open as a blank page.  What happened?  Something is changing IE settings  back to “A blank page” ? This particular fix for this article was tested on Win7 x64 with IE9. In a few words, you need to delete this registry entry vprot.exe from location HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run   A little bit more radical solution is to run a 3 line script on Startup to delete all intruding entries from all 3 possible Startup locations in Registry.

Potable Aqua PA Plus Iodine Water Purification Tablets

Everything is ready for the trip to Wild River wilderness.  This time I am planning to stay in the wild 2 nights from Friday to Sunday and return to the car on my bike on Sunday.  Monday as usual would be a “freelance” day for light exploration and contemplation. I will carry a large KELTY backpack that I inherited from my former boss – Gary Welsh.  He most likely took this vintage backpack to his trips to Nepal (before 1996).  All this time this backpack was gathering dust in my basement, and only this year it finally dawned on me that I do not have scramble for space and eliminate either…

14-26 Last mile to the top

  09:53 – All trails are starting from the main road 09:54 – Dartmouth Ravine Lodge – the place of fun the place of knowledge   After breakfast at cash only place in North Woodstock (where route 3 crosses with 112) I drove to Ravine Lodge on route 118, and started my way to the top at 10:35.

But here, at 777 m elevation the rain turned into snow, and it was a very festive white on green, but snow here was just a pretty ornament. 10:36 – Starting point to mount Moosilauke. Snow is just an fairy tale ornament here…
