SOURCE: How do I get rid of alot?

Jon,

First, do a clean restart of your PC

Then, check in View, Toolbars and if it shows up there, click to remove the check in front of it, then click to put a check in front of Lock Toolbars.

Then shut down IE.

Also, go into Control Panel, Add-Remove and remove the listing for the AOL toolbar.

Finally, look into Tools, Manage Add-ons, and if there is a listing for it there, remove that one, too.

Bring IE back up and see if it is gone now. It certainly should be.

Let us know?

Cheers!
-a.

You need to provide the operating system and the browser information. There is usually an Internet Options control panel somewhere in the operating system. It usually has the option to enter the address of a new home page on the top layer of the menus in the control panel, then it gives you the option to apply the change.

SOURCE: set google as homepage

Very easy to answer. I assume that you are using internet explorer as your browser. If so you simply go to the tools pull-down menu, then choose the last litem on the menu which is internet options, after this the first item is to set your homepage. Either go to google.com and enter "use current" or type google.com in the box provided. Thant's it.

Assuming you are using Internet explorer do this

Got to Tools (ALT+T) in browser
Pick Internet Options in Menu
In the General Tab you will see Box marked "Home Page"
Delete what is in there and insert http://www.google.com
Press Apply Button at the bottom of the Window.
Then Press OK to get back to Browser.
Close Browser and your new home page will be Google.com

Google search was my homepage, but now yahoo has taken over. How do I get back to google and get rid of yahoo


I strongly recommend you read http://google-redirect-virus.info/prevent-google-redirect-virus.htm GOOGLE REDIRECT VIRUS Although the page says 'things to prevent redirect virus' it is a good free method of protecting you computer from anything. How you change your default search depends on the browser but its pretty easy to do.

I want to get rid of "ASK" and set Google as my hopmepage


Here's how you can get rid of ASK toolbar and set Google as you homepage:
    1.To uninstall Ask Toolbar program from Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7, click the "Start" button, then click on the "Control Panel" menu option.
    If you are using Windows 8, simply drag your mouse pointer to the right edge of the screen, select Search from the list and search for "control panel" .Or you can right-click on a bottom left hot corner (formerly known as the Start button) and select Control Panel from there.
    2.When the "Control Panel" window opens click on the "Uninstall a program" option under "Programs" category. This option is shown by the arrow in the image below. If you are using the "Classic View" of the Control Panel, then you would double-click on the "Programs and Features" icon instead.
    3.When the "Programs and Features" or the "Uninstall a Program" screen is displayed, scroll through the list of currently installed programs and uninstall Ask Toolbar, Ask Toolbar Updater, Ask Updater and any other recently installed or unknown programs from your computer. That should uninstall Ask toolbar from your computer. You'll also need to remove extensions from your browsers. Refer to this article which gives detailed instructions on how you can remove Ask toolbar from your browser as well as what to do if you can't remove it:
    http://malwaretips.com/blogs/remove-ask-toolbar-and-search/
    For setting Google as home page, once Ask toolbar has been removed, just open your browser and paste this link in the address bar:
    http://www.google.com/homepage/

    It'll automatically detect the browser you're using and give you instructions on how to set Google as your homepage.

Get rid of ask search


You haven't specified the browser you are using. (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, etc.)

Normally you have to go into settings and you can edit the default homepage. (Sometimes under 'Start-Up' settings)
