In new browsers, your set your preferred search engine. If you browser loads something like Search Conduit, your browser has been hacked. This typically happens when you install Google, Adobe, VLC Video Player, Handbrake Media Encoder. All these programs ask you to install extra search components. This especially problematic with VLC and Handbrake which are good tools. But, you cannot fly through the install otherwise you will install something you did not initially intend to. For Search Conduit or something similar search for that on a trusted search engine or your phone and follow the steps to remove.

For typical browsers, you can go into the options and specify who you want to manage your search business:

In Chrome, you'll find the search configuration by going into the browser settings, look under the "Search" section, and click on the "Manage Search Engines" button. Click "Make Default" button for the search engine you desire.

Internet Explorer has a search field that looks almost identical to the one in Firefox. Later versions, do this all from the URL bar. The dropdown for the search engine list in this case isn't next to the search engine icon, but instead it's to the right side of the field. This will show you a list of currently available search engines that you can set as your new default.

I'm using google chrome with ask as my defauly browser, and i would llike to use google search engine instead of the ask engine. how do i do this?


First, you can go into control panel and remove the ask toolbar if you never use it. It may make your browser a bit faster, and it will certainly give you some more space on the screen.

Second, you can change your browser search behaviour by finding the menu icon (looks like three horizontal bars, maybe green, just under the "X" close window button in the upper right of your browser). Click on it, then scroll down to "Search" and select Google. Close this tab, and you should be back to where you want to be.

I want google my homepage


First, What are you using? Google Chrome? If you are using google chrome go and click the button on the top right, the three lines, and click settings, now go and look for Search, it should be there somewhere, click on "Manage Search Engines", and in Default Search Settings, hover over google.com and click "Make Default" Simple as that.

Would like to change my search engine to Google


For I.E go to tools in the top right and then from the drop down menu go to Internet options. The 3rd section down will have change search settings and from there you can add or remove your search settings. Also It sounds like your defult home page was changed to ask.com so in Internet options at the top you can remove ask.com and replace it with google.com. I would also scan your computer with www.malwarebytes.org

I want to change my current browser the search engine ask. com into the the google . com.ph/


Hi there,
If I understand your question, then you want to change your default search engine from ask.com to google.
Here is what you do. In your search bar, there is a drop down arrow. Click on it, and it shows all the available search engines installed in your browser. To make google your default, simply select it, and that should effect the change.

Hope that was helpful?
Thank you for using FixYa.
