I'm running Win XP home SP3.
Browser is Internet Explorer version 8. I just downloaded it.

So, you want to remove msn.com from your home page and Bing search from Internet Explorer 8?
Please correct me if I am wrong.
Also what did you earlier have as your home page instead of msn.com?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.

Actually this is my wife's machine.
She would like Google to appear when she accesses the web.
I hate Microsoft and Bing. I'm happy with Google & Internet Explorer.

Open Internet Explorer.

Visit the link below:-

http://www.google.com/
