Google Chrome home page defaults to Delta search, despite me trying to change it to Google search in Chrome Settings. The changes I am making are not applying. What am I doing wrong?

Go to settings --> Search -->
there from the dropdown box, choose "google" or other, whichever you want, as the default search engine..


in the extensions, uninstall the DELTA search tool bar, if accidentally it was installed.

I have a Toshiba L305-s5955 and my dvd drive has disappeared. How do I get it back? Thanks.

If the DVD drive has disappeared in the windows explorer.

Here's the step.

1. Go to Start, on the start search box,type REGEDIT and enter. A registry editor will come up.
2. On the left pane of the window, there are folders.
Open HKEY LOCAL MACHINE/open SYSTEM/open Current Control Set/ open CONTROL/ open CLASS/ open the 4D36E965...folder
3. After opening the 4D36E965, on the right pane of the window, under name look for the lower and upper filter files, or even just one of them and DELETE.
4. Then restart NB to take effect.
5. Check in the windows explorer if the DVD-RW drive is back on the list.
6. Insert a disc to check.
