This is usually because of a toolbar under name CortonExt but it usually manages to return after you disable the toolbar in your browser and uninstall it from Control Panel > Programs and Features.

Try booting to Safe Mode by tapping the F8 key repeatedly at boot time until the menu appears and selecting Safe Mode. Once in Safe Mode uninstall Corton from the Control Panel and then open your browser (if you have more than one do this for all) and from the Tools > Addons section disable CortonExt, if you get the option to delete it then please do so.

Open Computer and delete the following folders if they exist
C:\Program Files (x86)\Corton\
C:\Program Files\Corton\

Reboot back into normal mode and reset your homepage. Let me know if it comes back.

SOURCE: IE will not let me set my home page. It keeps

check to see if you have a feature in your security software ( like your antivirus or antispyware software) that blocks homepage changes, if a glitch accidentally changed your homepage, it might not let you change it back

SOURCE: can't open google or yahoo search pages, i keep

Sounds like adware or spyware (any kind of badware in your computer) is the issue. Perhaps a simple problem on the browser configuration is the issue.
You may try to download Firefox to see is you have the same problem. Have your computer updated (from the Microsoft Updates) and run the Malicious removal Tool (Click Start - Run - Type: MRT and press enter).

Good luck.

SOURCE: what should i do?

Press CTRL ALT & DELat the same time. It opens Task Manager. > Choose Processes
It might show that you got many Chromes running simultaneously. Click the one CHROME that is running (it usually has to do with something of a Flash program) on highest in CPU usage, then >> END PROGRESS. If that happens to close your Chrome there's no harm done as you can just re-install them by clicking it again. BUT normally it kills SHOCK WAVE FLASH thats has ridiculed people for almost ten years...
Well, it kills your Flash loads but revises your computer speed. You can simply just put these other windows' reloading after the procedure.

I want to go back to google and google + instead of bing which popped up and I did not want it

To make Google your default search engine, in Chrome, click the three bars to the far right of the Chrome browser, click Settings, Set the programs you want to run as your Home Page, removing Bing, then click "Manage Search Engines", and get rid of the engines you don't want to keep by clicking the X when you hover over them, and click "Make default" on the one you prefer. Also remove Bing from "Programs and Features" within the Control Panel. Other browsers have a similar way to change search engine preferences: sometimes by an icon next to the Search box that lets you "Manage" them.

Sometimes when you download a program, or an update for a program, there will be a box/button to add Bing as your search engine, and maybe a toolbar too. In the future, always look at the different prompts that pop up and deselect the buttons for such extras.

Make google my home page

Setting your homepage depends on your browser. If the Google chrome browser is your browser of choice, Google is automatically the home page. If its Safari (the default browser for apple products) then click on the word "safari" in the header, then "preferences" then change the homepage url to google.comaaeb0363-95b2-4af9-b8a4-5f83e87861d6.png

Can I keep google as my home page and still use yahoo messenger or is that not possible??

Hi petrunvictor...
The answer to your question is Yes you can keep google as your home page and yahoo messenger in use at anytime
They are two seperate programs and can operate independly of each other.
When you turn on yahoo messenger just remember that you will still have your google home page minimized at the bottom of the page but you will have to minimize yahoo messenger to see it again.

I cannot get Yahoo ! to load as my home page

What browser? Did you change it in the preferences (Internet Options control panel for Internet Explorer; in Firefox, Tools: Options).

If it's Internet Explorer giving you problems, please allow me to recommend trying Firefox. It's faster, it's safer and it's pretty friendly to use. It's also free.
