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.

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.

Make google my home page


You didn\'t specify what browser you\'re using nor what operating system you\'re using. Assume you\'re using Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) and Windows 7.



When I see the "Ask" homepage and/or "Ask Toolbar" problem, it usually tells me there\'s adware/spyware on the system. Ask components are not just a single program but usually consist of multiple pieces that you have to take care of. You may need to take aggressive action to remove "Ask" features. It can take quite a while to remove Ask and return control of the home page to you. This article from PC Magazine will give you a decent start: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2421591,00.asp



There are a thousand web articles out there talking about how to remove Ask components, both automated and manual. Some of them start out with a treatment of the system using MalwareBytes or SuperAntiSpyWare programs. Both of these offer free scanning and cleaning. They will not remove Ask but will help you get rid of most other infestations to ensure a stable platform before you begin. I often find the manual Ask removal procedure to be the most thorough but one that takes more time and effort. Try the easy ones first - you may get lucky.



Once you\'ve ridded your system of the Ask junk, you will then be able to have your Google Home Page back. In the IE browser, call up Google.com. Then use Tools > Internet Options. Look at the top panel of the General tab. Delete everything in the field. You\'ll see a button to the left called "Use Current", click that and Google.com should now be your home page.



If you fail to completely remove Ask, Ask SearchBar, Ask Toolbar, and all Ask components, I\'m afraid this Ask home page hijack may come back to haunt you until you do get rid of it.



Ask is usually injected on a system when you download and install software, for instance Java. Most reputable software vendors (like the folks who make Java) will let you OPT OUT of the Ask component -but- it is up to you, the user, to pay attention and take the OptOut path. Blindly clicking through a software install, whether downloaded from the \'net or off a disk, is just asking for it.
