How do I change my search engine for my home page?


Warning: If your search engine has recently changed and the URL in the address line of your browser has a long link in it, you probably have a virus or malware that has hijacked your search engine.

Otherwise, bring up the General tab on the Options or Internet Options for your browser and key in the url you want for the home page (e.g. https://google.com) and click the OK button. If you click on the house icon on the browser (or restart the browser) that will be the page that comes up.

If it resets to the previous value, you have malware and will need to run anti-malware software to fix it... which is a whole different discussion.

I am unable to do a google search?


Internet Explorer comes preinstalled on most Windows-based computer systems.
If you use Internet Explorer, you may run into the issue where the Internet browser does not open for some reason when you attempt to access it.
Usually that's caused by a minor flaw in your computer, one you can correct without too much effort or time.

Run the anti-virus software you have on your computer and perform a full system scan. Sometimes if a virus or malware infects your computer, it blocks Internet Explorer from launching.
Once the scan has finished, remove any bugs or infections your software found on your computer and attempt to relaunch Internet Explorer.
Shut down the computer and restart it.
Sometimes just restarting the computer can correct any error you are having.

Click the "Start" button, followed by "Control Panel."
The Control Panel window will load with a variety of system icons. Select "System."

Select "System Update" and allow your computer to connect to the Internet (no browser is required) and Windows tells you if any updates for your system are available.
Install these updates and your issues with Internet Explorer may disappear.

Launch a different web browser (such as Firefox or Safari). Using one of these browsers, you can usually access the Internet; you could try to download an updated version of Internet Explorer to correct the older version that's not loading.

Turn Off Google's Safe Search
Google's preference page allows users to customize settings and options that help utilize searches to the viewer's needs.
One of those options is Google's filtering tool.
This tool contains three filtering options that will filter your results completely, with moderate safety, or it will not filter the search results at all.
Google's filtering preferences also filter and determine what kind of keywords and keyword phrases appear in the Google search bar.

Click on "Preferences" on the left side of the search bar of the Google Home Page.
You will be directed to Google's "Preferences" page.
Scroll down until you locate the "Safe Search Filtering" section of the page.
You will see three safe search options: "Use Strict Filtering," "Use Moderate Filtering," and "Do Not Filter My Search Results."
Click the "Do Not Filter My Search Results" option to check the option and click the "Save Preferences" button to save your changes.

MY INTERNET EXPLORER STOPS FREQENTLY


You might have a virus or infection that is causing it.

First open your Internet Options in the Control Panel (it might be under Network) and go to the Advanced tab and hit the Reset button to reset Internet Explorer to the default settings.

Download and install MalwareBytes and run a Quick Scan.

Go to www.google.com and in the search box type: "Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download and install malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When the site opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do not click the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the Gui Interface will open up with an offer to Accept a Trial Version or Decline. CLICK DECLINE you want the totally free version. Run a QUICK SCAN. As it scans, if it finds infections the number will be in red. When it finishes scanning, click SHOW RESULTS. A notepad text document will open up showing you the results. You can close the text document and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTED RESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When it finishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot your machine.



Try using a better broswer. Internet Explorer is the worst.

Try downloading Mozilla Firefox, Opera and Google Chrome. Unlike Internet Explorer they install in less than 5 minutes and they are faster and safer than Internet Explorer.

Go to www.google.com and in the search box type: "Download Mozilla Firefox" (without the quotes). Download and Install Mozilla Firefox from Mozilla's website. Do the same thing for Opera and Google Chrome.

I've put the links of each one below so if you like you can just click on them to go to their site to do the download and install.

Google search goes to incorrect sites


You need to be more specific. When you search on google does it show a results page? Or does it take you to a different site?

If it take you to a different site other than google, you could have spyware on the machine, if google just show random search results, you can try resetting your internet explorer.

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.
