I've used files here for years including this one and my IE has not changed in behavior at all. Additionally you did not post your AV logs and the detection name which is vitally important. Additionally, malware rarely if ever changes the homepage of your browser to the blank page (more than often to a malicious website, but changing it to blank makes no sense from an attacker's point of view). Additionally, not only do we check this file in paticular, all the code for it is written by the staff.
Please see this page before posting and make sure your not reporting false reports:

The file is 100% clean, tested by Chris and whatever changed your homepage, it wasn't one of my tools.
