I'd suggest cleaning all temporary internet files, cookies and etc.
Perhaps you should try running an Anti Virus, AVG is for free.
Also, try running Ad-aware for spyware.

I do not want to use google custom search but it always appear; I want the www.google.com website


This small trick will show you how to remove the Google Custom Search page and get the old Google webpage for queries.

  1. Click here
  2. The link will redirect you to the Google Advanced Search Settings page.
  3. Change the default keyword with the one you are looking for.
  4. At the end of the page click the Search button.

If this trick doesn't work try these other suggestions:

  • If you are logged in Google try to log out and make a new search.
  • Try to clear your Browser cache. On your browser, go to Settings, Privacy and clear your cache. Try with a new Search.
  • Go to http://www.google.com/cse/manage/all?hl=en, log in and delete or turn off Google Custom Search engines.
  • Do you have toolbars installed on your browser? Delete them, restart your computer and try to make a new search.
  • Scan your computer for viruses. Sometimes, malicious viruses install Google custom search engines on your browser to make you click on their ads.

I Googled Golding Young Auctioneers yesterday, the site that came up was Teen porn! I thought there was a mistake so I tried the next one, that was also a porn site as was the third site, the fourth site...


I just Googled the exact same phrase as you, and did not get the offending websites you mentioned. The only thing I can think of is your computer may have some malware or viruses on it that causes your searches to not actually be searching "Google".

I would run a virus and spyware check on your computer. If you don't have any anti-virus or anti-spyware, there are plenty of free resources online. AVG has a free anti-virus and Malwarebytes will scan for spyware.

Good luck.

It says the site is blocked on my school computer


Thank you for your question.
If your school or company has blocked Facebook, they are blocking it for reasons; takes away the user's concentration from work or studies and the site uses a lot of bandwidth.
You can still access FACEBOOK by using a proxy server. One is www.facebookproxy.co.uk. However, using may not be safe. Also, if your companies/school server security feature detects that it your are using a proxy, it may be blocked as well. You can search google for list of facebook proxies that may work with Facebook.
Hope this helps you. Have a nice day!

Yahoo and Google Search Not Working


Hi

If you restored your computer, you may have destroyed some of the files needed by Yahoo and Google search engines. The easiest way to resolve this is to download and reinstall both the Yahoo and Google search engines.

Good Luck

I get oops! This link appears broken. Happens with Google and Google Chrome. Could it be a virus? I also cannot search msn.com using Bing?


No, it is probably not a virus. Links are addresses for other pages that may not be typed correctly, or the web site/page was moved or no longer exists. (See below for clarification on unexpected results.) If you use MS Explorer, it allows you to choose primary search engines. After updating Explorer, you can keep Google as primary, but Bing will be easily accessed by clicking on the Google Icon in the search box. A menu will drop down and show Bing as an option. Also, you should be able to type Bing into any search engine and search from the Bing homepage. If you are clicking on a bing search on the MSN home page and being blocked, I'll betcha Microsoft would love to know that. Lastly, there is such a thing as Browser Hijackers. If you click on something or suddenly find yourself in an unexpected place after using a trusted search engine, that would be a hint. The solution is to keep all software updated to avoid lapses in security that allow Bugs into your system.

Why myspace sends me directly to google


if you are using windows XP or Vista, search for a file called "hosts"
it should be inside C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc

open in using notepad or any text editor
search for myspace.com
it should be on a line looking like
"myspace.com google.com"

or

"www.myspace.com www.google.com"


delete the whole line and save the "hosts" file
reboot your computer
and go enjoy your myspace.com

Windows cannot find GoogleUdate.exe


Are you using any of google package. If yes, try downloading full google package from following link.
http://pack.google.com/intl/en-gb/pack_installer.html?hl=en-gb

If you keeping that pop-up every time you turn on your computer there could be possible infection. Because there is a known virus these days which use googleupdate.exe file for spreading infections on your computer.
