Stop MSN News Page Popping up in Chrome.

If you get the MSN News page popping up in Chrome, you may think your default Home page has been compromised. In all likelihood, it hasn't. Nor will you find a Chrome setting for it, because it's set outside Chrome.

The culprit is a registry setting. To fix it, follow these steps:

  1. From the Start menu, enter regedit
  2. Rightclick the regedit.exe and choose Run as administrator.
  3. When regedit opens, choose HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and expand it until you arrive at SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Services.
  4. Expand Services and scroll down to NlaSvc. Expand it, select Parameters, then Internet, and expand it.
  5. In the right panel, if EnableActiveProbing has a value of 0x00000001, double click it and set the value to 0.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Close regedit. Your mission has been accomplished.
