Question about Computers & Internet
Which version of IE are you using? In IE 10, click on the Gear symbol on the right of the URL line (or Tools in the Menu bar if open), select the Manage Add-ons option. If these are hidden, press Alt+T to access the Menu bar and Tools. Under the Search Providers, you can change the default search provider. You can also remove Ask.com from that list. Also check under Toolbars and disable the Ask toolbar if it is present.
If your homepage has been changed, go to Internet Options under the Gear. In the General tab, reset your homepage.
I believe these steps worked in IE8 and 9. I'm not sure about the older versions of IE.
If the settings change again, you may have some sort of rootkit or other malware present. Try Malwarebyte Anti-malware to remove the problem.
I hope this helps.

You might want to print this out:
1) Turn off your laptop.
2) Press the "on" button on your laptop, and *immediately* start tapping on the F8 key on your keyboard. This should bring up a black screen with white text on it.
NOTE: You may get a message saying "keyboard error, press F1 to continue." If this happens, press F1 and then keep tapping on the F8 key.
NOTE: If the Windows screen comes up, turn off the computer and try again until you get to a black screen with different startup choices on it.
3) Once you have reached the startup choices screen, use the arrow keys on your keyboard to highlight "safe mode." Press the Enter key. If you are asked to choose your operating system, just press Enter again.
This will start a lot of text scrolling on your screen. Just be patient. When it stops, you will see a login screen. Log in under your name (sometimes this is "owner").
4) You will now be logged in to you computer in Safe Mode. A message will pop up asking if you want to use Safe Mode or System Restore. Click on System Restore.
5) You should now have the option to undo your last System Restore. Choose this option and follow the instructions on your screen to get back to where you were before you tried to restore your laptop.
If you need further help after that, please reply with the name and model number of your laptop. For example, "Dell Inspiron 530," or "Compaq Presario 3000." Also let me know what version of Windows you are using, for example "XP" or "Vista."

ok, it could be a corrupted Internet Explorer program itself. Does it happen only with it or, if you are using another browser, is it happening with the other browser too?. If you only use Internet Explorer as your Web Browser, then download a copy of the installation package (can download it from here http://www.microsoft.com/nz/windows/internet-explorer/default.aspx ) and reinstall it. It should work. If you want a further explanation on how to do it, please specify Operative System. Hope it helps, good luck.
