I guess you have set your front page to a node of type page, and this
must be a node access issue.

After making sure that you don't have any node access modules enabled,
try the "Rebuild permissions" button in "admin/content/node-settings".

If that  doesn't help, take a look at the node_access table in the
database (or use the devel module) to see if there are any leftover
entries which affect those nodes. If you find any, notice the "realm"
field so that you know the culprit.

Try to empty the node_access table and then insert only a single row
with nid=0, just like the modules/system/system.install script does
during installation.

While you are there, truncate the cache tables as well, just in case.
