Your pc must be infected with spyware. Go to, download it & that will clear your temp files, etc then go to download malware bytes, update it & do a full scan to see if that clears it for you. If that doesnt work download try super Antispyware.

How do you remove/delete google reader from following me

In order to protect internet searchers, Google set up a notice to warn users that they are visiting a new page when being redirected from the Google search URL. From here a user can see that the browser is redirecting them, and can choose to visit the site or return to the Google search page. Unfortunately, occasionally this notice may appear each time you click on a search result in Google, making it frustrating to search for anything through Google. If you get the Google redirect notice constantly, you can clear your Internet browser cache and cookies to resolve the issue.

Open the Firefox browser on your computer, and click the "Firefox" option at the top left of the program. Scroll over and hover over "History," then click on "Clear Recent History" from the drop-down menu. Select "Everything" for "Time range to clear," and place check-marks next to "Cookies" and "Cache" in the "Details" section. Click "Clear Now." Allow Firefox to delete the information, then restart the browser. Internet Explorer Open the Internet Explorer browser on your computer, and click the "Tools" (Gear icon) option at the top right of the program. Scroll down, and click on "Internet Options." Click on "Delete" beneath "Browsing history." Put check-marks next to "Cookies" and "Temporary Internet Files." Click "Delete." Allow Internet Explorer to delete the information, then restart the browser. Google Chrome Open the Google Chrome browser on your computer, and click the wrench icon at the top right of the program. Scroll down, then click "Options." Click "Under the Hood" on the left side of the browser window, then click "Clear browsing data" in the "Privacy" section. Select "the beginning of time" for the "Obliterate the following items" drop-down. Put check-marks next to "Empty the cache" and "Delete cookies and other site and plug-in data." Click "Clear browsing data." Allow Chrome to delete the information, then restart the browser. b>

Can't delite babylon from firefox


To revert to Google as your preferred search engine, please do the following.

  • In the location bar, type about:config and hit Enter.
  • In the filter at the top, type: keyword.URL
  • Double click it and remove whatever's in there and replace it with
It's possible that Babylon will add itself to more than one place in about:config. Therefore, after completing the above steps, type "babylon" in the filter at the top. For every instance where you see a setting with that name in it, right click it and choose Modify and then Reset. Then close Firefox and restart it.
The URL to add in "keyword.URL" becomes a link in this post, so right click it and choose "Copy Link Location" to copy it to the Windows clipboard. Then hit CTRL+V to paste it. Saves you having to type the whole thing.

To reset your home page, do the following.

  • Go to the site you want to set as your homepage.
  • Click the orange Firefox button and go to Options ' Options ' General (Firefox 4.0.x and above).
  • Go to Tools ' Options ' General (Previous version of Firefox).
  • Make sure it says "Show My Homepage" in the first dropdown menu.
  • Click the button called "Use Current Pages" to set the homepage to the one you have on the screen.
Babylon search and toolbar will be installed with an IM chat client called Digsby if you don't opt out of it during the installation. See the info at the foot of this page:

I want Google to be my search engine when I click on Fire fox but it is now. How do I change it.

Firefox didn't make it very easy to change your search provider, but you can do it. Here's how:
  1. In the address bar, enter "about:config" (not with the quotes).
  2. You'll see a warning screen; click on the "I'll be careful" button.
  3. Enter "keyword.URL" in the filter string box.
  4. Double-click the current value for keyword.URL, and in the box that opens, enter "" and click OK.
This will make Google your default search provider. You can also click on the search provider icon at the left end of the search bar and pick Google from the drop-down list.
Thanks for using Fixya!

Problems downloading..etc...

Try this link. Click on the filename, click through a few ads (of course saying no thanks), and it's yours. It took me about 5 ads. Type in the Verification and then download. Or you could look at registering, I think its free.

If this satisfies your request, please choose FixYa!
