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..

OR

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

Hey, my Internet explorer is kind of annoying. Everytime I search something in the browser box, some MyWebSearch searches, I want Google or Yahoo to search this, not MyWebSearch. Do you have anby sollutions for me?


If you are using the address bar to search, you should use a browser such as Google Chrome. Internet explorer does not have the capability to do this as quick. Try upgrading to a newer IE to be able to do this
