Google set homepage

You set the home page in Internet Options (for IE, Internet Explorer). If you have software that won't allow a change in home page, you need to disable that software or allow the change.

If malicious software won't allow the change, you can try resetting IE to its default settings, under Internet options, Advanced tab.

If that doesn't work, download the free version of Malwarebytes and/or Adaware from and run one of them.

How do I change WHERE a file automatically downloads to?

What browser are you using? Internet Explorer or Firefox or Googlechrome? etc..etc..?

For internet explorer 8, click start (Run) or simply type in "regedit" in the Run box (windows xp) or Search box (windows vista and 7), and then on the regedit, locate this HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer then open Download and again on the right pane, you'll be able to see "Download Directory" double-click it and change the directory to whatever you want, lick if you want to download set it to D: drive, type in D:\Download (download as the folder name), click "Ok" and you are done, the default download folder/directory has been changed.

If your browser is Firefox, click Tools, then Options and again on the General tab, locate download, then "Save files to" then click "Browse" and locate the folder or directory where you want to save all the downloads.

In Googlechrome, simply click the settings "icon" on the extreme-top right corner (spanner icon), select "Options" and on the "under the hood" tab, scroll down to the middle and locate "Download" then click "Browse" and locate the directory/folder where you want to save the downloads, click "Ok" to select the folder.

If you need further help, let me know with the name of the browser you are using. I'll upload some well illustrated photos if you want.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My computer freezes when i click the hyperlinks

The first thing to do when Internet Explorer is misbehaving is empty your Internet Explorer cache. Often the cache is not corrupt or damaged – it is simply too large.
Click Tools, then Internet Options, and then click the Delete Files button.
A Delete Files window will appear. Select the option to Delete all offline content, and then click OK.
Click Settings and reduce the size of your cache to, say, 50 to 100 MB (more if you routinely download very large files).

What windows operating system are you using? The best way to defrag a hard drive is to turn off your screensaver, if you have one set to run, then reboot your computer in safe mode, by continuously tapping the F8 key at the bootup screen, and then selecting safe mode (#3) on the menu. Then go to Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/Disk Defragmentor. Be sure you have the settings to correct any problems that it may find. If you have to scan your hard drive for problems, then open My Computer/right-click the C: drive/select properties/click the tools tab/and under error checking, click the 'check now' button. Checking your hard drive for errors will take awhile to accomplish, so just let it run.

Any download from intanet is being blocked somehow by my laptop i have tried to cancel all popup blocks and cancelled the firewall to no avail it's running on vista can anyone help!! need skype and windows...

Open Internet Explorer. Click on Tools/Internet Options/Security. You will see a button near the bottom that says "Reset all zones to default level" . Click on this button. Above it to the left, you will see a message that says Appropriate for most websites and under it Prompt prior to downloading potentially unsafe content. Click on Apply and close out the browser. Now when you attempt to download Skype or Messenger (btw Messenger can be run from the web now) you should see a yellow bar appear just under the address bar with a warning. You should be given the option to download the file. Click on download file and you should be all set.
