This is some advice I found after researching on Web: If I were you, I would get SpyBot Search And Destroy, and Ad-Aware 6 They are both Free award winning programs. But GET BOTH IF I WERE YOU. [Ad-aware is better in the sense that it finds more things and is updated alot more often] But Spybot is able to find a few things that Ad-aware Cant also. So, Get those 2 programs, and Update them. Be sure to customize Ad-Aware's Scanning settings to make sure it scans everything possible.
I would suggest scanning with Ad-Aware First, then find those extra few registry keys that Ad-aware couldnt detect, with SpyBot. Also, A VERY good program is SpySweeper. That has ALOT of definitions.

I want to take inbox off as my home page and get yahoo back. I did the add/remove option. It deleted it from there but when I go on line inbox still comes up


Your browser has been hijacked.
It's less likely to happen if you get rid of Internet Explorer and use Google Chrome instead.
Click on the link below and choose a removal tool that isn't located on some page of inbox.com:

How do I get google search to be my default search engine when another search bar from a software I downloaded has taken over my browser?


Since you're using IE7, please click on TOOLS which can be found at the top left part of your screen, select INTERNET OPTIONS, then you will see a small screen pop up, make sure you're on the GENERAL tab. Under this tab, look for HOME PAGE, underneath it, there's a box where you can set your default home page. Please type in http://www.google.com then click on APPLY then OK on the lower part of the screen. Please take note that in case you optimized or reset your IE7, all settings will be back to default.

Why does Yahoo not show up as my home page when I sign in to the Internet?


There are two likely reasons. First, you don't have Yahoo set up as your home page. All browsers have a place where you can tell it what to use as your home page. In Firefox, pick Tools from the menu bar, then Options, and pick the General tab. There's a box where you can enter your home page. If you use Internet Explorer, click on Tools, then Internet Options, and then the General tab. If you're using another browser (Google Chrome, Safari), the Help information will tell you how to set your home page.

The second possibility is that some malware application has changed (hijacked) your home page. If your home page used to be Yahoo, and now it's not and you didn't change it, this is probably why. You can download MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware and scan your computer. If something has infected your computer, this is a good program to find and eliminate it.

Homepage changes from Google.com to Google.com/es


One thing I always do when changing home pages in IE7 is this, I open it and let whatever page is set as default to load [in your case [google.com/es], then I type in the page I want to set as my default page which in your case again should be [google.com]. The I go to the tools menu and [click] 'Internet Options', when the Window Appears Simply [Click] 'Use Current' and the browsers default page will change to the page you have currently open. I hope that helps
