I'am a windows 7 user with medium understanding, turnkey lamp control panel has taken over as my default homepage in IE and I cannot change it. I have no clue how this happened and cannot find any info on the net on how to fix it.

I'm not sure how it could have happened either (without you meaning to do it). TKL LAMP (or any other appliances) do not have any malware or code that would do that automatically (not by default anyway).

If I were you, I'd double check your Internet Explorer 'home page' settings. TBH I'm not sure where you would find them, but I would imagine that they should be fairly easy to find and adjust.

TBH I have very little to do with Windows these days and even when I do, I never use IE. Perhaps there is some way to reset it to default settings? Maybe it might also be worth doing a malware scan as perhaps something nefarious is blocking a setting?

I have done some malware scans and did not find anything, I will try to find a way to reset the settings, I appreciate your efforts and if I find anything I will report back.

I'm happy to help, although it seems that in this instance it's actually not helping you much... :(

Good luck with it and it'd be great if you post back when you get to the bottom of it. It might save someone else in the future a bit of time and effort...

I still do not know how this issue began but I am great full someone was willing to give me push in the right direction. Sometimes the answer is so obvious that you blow right by it. I installed Chrome and imported all my bookmarks, (as it turned out that wasn't necessary, but still a good idea) I then went to internet options in IE and under advance setting found a reset button that takes you back to a clean install of your present version, worked like a charm.

Big thanks to Jeremy for his input.
