    I've already done that on two different computers so I suspect it's the interaction of the software...

Un-install Google toolbar and maybe even Firefox, then re-install without the Send to gadget.

If you just must have the Send to gadget, you can try to install it again.

Trivigo keeps coming up when i open laptop.


Hi Patrick,

I guess you are trying to change the start up page on your browser such as Explorer, Firefox or Chrome?
This link is for Chrome
Set browser startup preferences
This link is for Explorer
Change your home page in Internet Explorer Microsoft Windows Help
This step is for mozilla firefox
You go to "Tools" by File on the top of your toolbar, then you click on "Options". After that, another window will appear. You will see a "Startup" section, and inside that, you will see a "When Firefox starts" and below that, a "Homepage". On the homepage section, type in the url for Google (http://www.google.com/) and then click "OK" at the bottom of the window. Hope that helps!

I tried it myself.

    First, uninstall the My Web Search option from Add/Remove Programs
    1) Click on Start, Settings, Control Panel
    2) Double click on Add/Remove Programs
    3) Find "My Web Search" in the list of installed programs and click on Change/Remove to uninstall it. You may also want to uninstall any of the following items associated with FunWebProducts.
    · My Web Search (Smiley Central or FWP product as applicable)
    · My Way Speedbar (Smiley Central or other FWP as applicable)
    · My Way Speedbar (AOL and Yahoo Messengers) (beta users only)

    4) Reboot your Computer and run HijackThis
    5) With HijackThis, scan for and fix any of the entries shown above that may be remaining.
    6) Next, open My Computer, Drive C, and double-click on the Program Files folder
    7) Right-click and delete the folders for:
    · FunWebProducts
    · MyWebSearch
    8) MyWebSearch should now be completely uninstalled from your computer.
    9) There will be some minor registry entries left behind by the uninstall, however these can be cleaned up by running SpyBot Search and Destroy or Ad-Aware SE or left alone.

    If unable to remove from control panel, then try to remove them after rebooting PC in Safe mode..

    Hope this would help you a lot.

    Dont forget to rank me up.

    Have a nice day.

    Best of Luck & Regards
