Default pages etc

Hi

I've installed the Microsoft AntiSpyware Beta software and I have managed to
change some default settings like 'start page' , 'search page', 'search bar'
etc for IE

But there are a number of double entries in the list.

I suspect that they are the IE default addresses rather than the Users
default addresses.

Even though it looks as if I can change them to (I can type in new
addresses), they revert back to the old address as soon as I click ok.

Do I have to go into the register to change them?

Thanks in advance
