Crome not opening


There can be several reasons why Google Chrome may be crashing on your computer. One of the main reasons can be your browser user profile is corrupted. You can try creating a new browser user profile and see if that resolves the issue. To do this, you can follow the steps below:
1. Exit Google Chrome completely.
2. Open Windows Explorer by pressing Windows key + E simultaneously.
3. Go to the address bar of Windows Explorer and enter the following address:
For Windows XP users:
%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\
For Windows Vista/ 7/ 8 users:
%LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\
4. Locate the folder called "Default" in the directory window that opens and rename it as "Backup default."
5. Try opening Google Chrome again. A new "Default" folder is automatically created as you start using the browser.

Google homepage default


What is your browser? Each browser has different methods of fixing this. It is also possible you have a type of malware that forces specific search engines and homepages on you, and takes over your browser. I'd install malwarebytes if you haven't already and spybot search and destroy. Run both of them and remove any viruses, malware, and hijackware from your computer.

If it is internet explorer: Go to internet options under control panel. Change your default search engine here, your default homepage, etc. If it's IE 11 or newer you can fix this in the browser's options. If you see a URL in the homepage url that you didn't choose, you have hijackware. Uninstall the hijackware via control panel program features. You should also delete the settings and reset them to default. Then run antivirus, anti-malware, etc.

If it's Firefox go to options(via the drop down menu on the left side of the search field next to the URL field. It should look like a little downward pointing arrow). Click the option "manage search engines" You should see a list of search engines. Move Google to the top of the list. As a homepage, go to the "stacked bar" pull down menu on the far right side of the browser (right under the X out button). This will give you a drop down, click Options under this menu and it will open a new window with several tabs. On the first tab called "general" you'll see Startup and a drop down menu. This will allow you to choose if Firefox, when opened anew, starts with a blank page, a homepage, or from where it last started up. Click homepage and in the field below this drop down menu type in google's url. If you see anything else here and you didn't put it in, you have hijackware on your computer.

If it's Chrome, click on the drop down menu on the far right side (three black stacked lines) click settings. This will open a new tab in Chrome with History, Extensions, Settings, and About on the left side. You'll be in the "Settings" option. On which you'll see "Sign In" with the option of logging into your google account. "Startup" or "On Startup" with three options "Open The New Tab Page, Open where you left off, Open a Specific Page or Set of Pages.[This option should have a "Set pages" in blue next to it]. Click Set Pages. This should open a new window that whites out the background window. If a page has been set without your permission it will have a URL appear here. This means you have hijackware on your computer. If it's blank you can set google as your homepage by entering its URL here. However, with Google Chrome, if you set "open The New Tab" option it should just open a blank Tab with Google Search as the primary option. Below this you'll find "Manage Search Engines" make sure that your default search engine is Google. If it's "Ask" and you didn't set this yourself, you have Hijackware on your computer. As a last resort, click the blue lettered "Advanced Settings" which extends the settings menu. At the bottom of the settings menu you'll see "Reset Settings" which brings Chrome back to default.

If you do have hijackware it has probably installed itself as an extension. Go through your extensions and make sure that nothing is out of place. No search extensions, no new weirdly named extensions, no "helper" extensions or search bars were installed. If they were, uninstall them by clicking the trashcan icon next to it.

What do i do to remove most visited tabs?


Click on the setting icon in google chrome (the one that looks like a wrench) and click options. Then on the basic tab under "home page" click "open this page" and type a URL that you would like to use as your home page. This will disable the most visited sites and instead open the home page you selected each time you open GC.

In Outlook when I click on a link I am taken back to Start Screen rather than opening link in a new window or tab. What is the fix, please?


Try using Mozilla Thunderbird as your desktop-based email client. It's much more maintainable and easy to migrate from computer to computer. Plus you can even download a portable version and keep it encrypted if that suits your taste. Can't say the same for Outlook. There are web based versions though, but that's not for everyone.

For your browser, I'd highly recommend avoiding the official Google Chrome. The derivatives are often better and even have some security and privacy issues mitigated. There is Comodo Dragon Chrome, Cool Novo Chrome, then there's Opera which is another great browser and if I'm not mistaken, also uses the Chromium Engine like Google Chrome.

All of those browsers support the latest plugins and so on. All of those software names will be #1 on most internet search engines so you can't get lost.

My other pages don't open with google.com when I open a new window,


Opening a new tab or window on Google Ghrome will not automatically open your set homepage(default google.com). If all you want to do is use the search engine, Google Chrome's address bar doubles as a Google search bar. You can type either full addresses and search terms into that bar.
You can also click the home button(a picture of a house) to get to Google from any page provided it is still set as your homepage.

I want to open www.hotmail.com and aslam5353@homail.com is my id on it but it is not opening and instead of opening hotmail my chrome opens www.live.com with a blank page


Try clearing the cache in Chrome.
To do this, click the wrench in the upper right corner of the Chrome window and click Options.
In the new tab that appears, click Under the Hood on the left side.
At the top of the list that appears, click Clear Browsing Data...
In the drop down in the pop up that appears, choose "Beginning of time" and make sure the first four boxes are checked.
Then choose Clear Browsing Data.
Please let me know if this solves your issue.
