You could just set the scheduled task to open that page in IE, without 
needing to set it as the home page. Just add the URL for the page after 
the path to iexplore.exe in the scheduled task, should look something 
like this:
C:\PROGRA~1\INTERN~1\IEXPLORE.EXE http://blah.com/mypage.asp

I wanted to mention this in case anyone else reading this wants to set 
up a scheduled task to open a web page (works the same with Firefox, 
BTW). But the other replies you've had about using SQL Job Agent are 
most likely your best option in this case.
