Problem when opening IE7

When I open IE7, rather than going to the homepage I have set in Internet Options, the following web address comes up (every time):
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=74005

What's up?

Thanks.

Http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=74005 is a default home page for IE.
So when you change your Home page on Internet Option Home page are you sure you have type correct address (e.g. http://www.google.com/) and press OK.

How do I make google my home pag


Hello Peter,

In order to prevent programs like AVG from changing your homepage please pay attention to those options during the installing of these programs. They will often ask you to install additional toolbars or change your homepage.

To change your homepage please do the following:
  1. Open your internet browser
  2. Open the options/preferences
  3. Usually the field for homepages is in the general tab or first menu you get when you open the options
  4. Enter your desired homepage address in the homepage field
  5. Save your changes
  6. Enjoy your new (or old) homepage!
Hope this helped you!

Make yahoo my homepage


This depends on which browser you are using.
For Internet Explorer:
Click the tools menu (the gear button in the upper right of the window)
Click 'Internet Options' On the 'General' tab, the first option is to change your homepage. Input yahoo's web address in the box and that will be your new homepage.
For Chrome:
Click the toolbar icon (the button with three horizontal bars in the upper right of the window). Click 'Settings', and then under 'Startup' select the option to 'Open a specific page or set of pages', and click 'set pages' where you can input yahoo's web address.
For Firefox:
Similar process to IE, select 'Settings'=>'General'=>'Startup'=>input web address.
Other browsers likely have a similar process.
Have a nice day.
