Hello Raven,
My guess is that you installed the AIM messenger program or some other software from AOL and there was a check box you did not notice to uncheck that said "Make AOL my home page".

It is easy to fix. If you are using Internet Explorer, go to Tools > Internet Options and there should be your home page information. Type in and click OK at the bottom of the screen.

Alternatively, go to mytelus and follow the same instructions except instead of typing in the URL, click the button under the home page URL that says Use Current and then click OK at the bottom.

Let me know if you are using a different browser or if this does not work.

How do I get aol 7 back ? and google as my default page ?

I'm assuming you want AOL7 back because they upgraded to AOL8? Just use Google to look for an older installer, you might get lucky and still find one.

Setting Google as your default page is easily done. Usually you open your browser and go to the preferences/setup window. After that you'll usually find a field called "homepage" or something along those lines where you can change your homepage.
Don't forget to save after inputting your desired homepage!

Many times, downloading a toolbar will automatically set your homepage whether you wanted it to or not. First, I would check to see if you have any toolbars installed (I remove all of them).

Click on Start > Control Panel > Programs and Features

If present, right-click on the Ask Toolbar and select Uninstall.

Next, return to Control Panel and open Internet Options. Under the Homepage box, enter and click on the Apply button. This should solve your problem.

If the homepage continues to revert back to the other pages, you more than likely have a running application causing the browser to automatically select the scripted page. I would then recommend downloading Google Chrome or Firefox to use as a web browser. If you already use Google Chrome and the problem is happening, download again to revert the settings back to default.

Some time ago I downloaded Google to my computer and it took over and everytime I open Internet Explorer, I get the Google website. I want to go back to myTelus. Can you help?

It sounds like your default homepage has been changed.
  1. Start Internet Explorer.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  3. Click the General tab.
  4. In the Address box, type the Web page address that you want for your home page.
    NOTE: If you want the page that you are currently viewing in Internet Explorer to be your home page, click Use Current.
  5. Click OK

That should clear things up for you.
