Is there any way to get rid of the e-machines search page on my computer?
Every time I search for anything I use Yahoo. When it is found my computer goes to that page then instantly changes to e-machines search with "we're sorry can't locate ......." I keep hitting the back arrow and it goes to the page I am looking for then returns quickly to the e-machines search page.

To reset your search engine and homepage to their default, we will use the SearchReset extension.This add-on is very simple: on installation, it backs up and then resets your search preferences and home page to their default values, and then uninstalls itself.
