Hi,

You do not mention which browser you have but if you have more than 1 browser do the following for all of them.

Right click on the browser shortcut (usually on your Desktop) and then select Properties. On the Shortcut tab in the Target box you should only have the browsers path, delete any text which comes after the .exe part then click OK.

Next you should reset your browser as follows.

For Firefox click Help > Troubleshooting Information then click Reset Firefox

For Internet Explorer click Tools > Internet Options, click the Advanced tab then click Reset, put a check in Delete personal settings and click Reset.

For Chrome click Tools > click Settings.

  1. Under On Startup select Open a specific page or set of pages and click Set pages.
  2. Remove dosearches.com and enter a new home page address. Click OK.
  3. Select Manage search engines under Search.
  4. Set a new default search engine and remove dosearches.com. Click Done.

Once you have done that you should run a scan with an up to date anti-malware program to make sure there are no other infected files, if you do not have one I would recommend the free version of MBAM http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free/

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!

I have ubuntu system in my laptop it is a dell and fire fox is my web browser i want to make google my home page i currently have inbox help please google search


If you go to Google, there should be a notification asking if you want to make Google your homepage or not. Then you just have to click 'Yes'.
If that does not work, go to options and then find the General tab. There you can find the HomePage URL and just set it to www.google.com
Hope this helps.

I wish to keep the yahoo account but I don't want it to show on my home page. Can this be accomplished?


Hi,

When you say homepage I assume you don't want to load yahoo site whenever you open a web browser. TO change your web homepage you need to go to the following:

for Firefox 6.01. (Most likely all firefox ver. are similar)

- Click tools
- Click Options
- Go to General TAB
- type the website you want to be on your homepage at HOME PAGE box or Start page for other version

For Internet explorer 8 (other version are similar but not identical. Just look for tools)
- Click tools
- Click Internet Options
- Go to General TAB
- type the website you want to be on your homepage at HOME PAGE box or Start page for other version

For Google Chrome
- Click the wrench icon on the top right side
- Click options
- Click Basics
- At the HOMEPAGE section type in the website you want to load

Basically thats all. Please note browsers has different version but always look for the tools menu

My other pages don't open with google.com when I open a new window,


Opening a new tab or window on Google Ghrome will not automatically open your set homepage(default google.com). If all you want to do is use the search engine, Google Chrome's address bar doubles as a Google search bar. You can type either full addresses and search terms into that bar.
You can also click the home button(a picture of a house) to get to Google from any page provided it is still set as your homepage.
