Microsoft have just released a hotfix (KB980959) to fix the problem with the â€œConfigured new tab page default behaviourâ€ group policy setting not working for Internet Explorer 8. Apparently the Intetres.admx had the wrong path configured path is configured to â€œSoftware\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Mainâ€ where it should be configured to â€œSoftware\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TabbedBrowsing\NewTabbedPageShowâ€. If you want to see the setting for your self just look for the text â€œNewTabActionâ€ in the Inetres.admx file.
For details on getting the hot fix and to see the full article â€œThe “Configure new tab page default behavior” Group Policy setting does not work on a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 and that has Internet Explorer 8 installedâ€ here http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=980959
