IE11 has a home page changer block. Access the internet settings from control panel and set it what you want.

SOURCE: IE 8 homepage keeps on changing to Google instead

Have you gone to Yahoo and clicked on tools, internet options, and set the home page to "current"?

If not, do so. Then it should stay there.

SOURCE: Internet explorer won't let me download firefox.

Try ultrasurf.
If it doesn't work then first install Google Chrome and then through it download and install firefox 3.6. IE has no control over the installation of Chrome.

How to get rid of ask.con on windows 8???


if you're talking about the toolbar, you can hit the windows key and the R key at the same time, type in appwiz.cpl, and find ask.com toolbar. if you're wanting to change your homepage to something other than ask.com you can do that through internet options in IE.

I cant find my google homepage


Your hijackers have changed the page. I would remove the hijackers, rootkits etc before setting the home page again. First go to IE and uncheck all addons. Then never use IE again. Use firefox or opera or safari or chrome etc. Download one of them as your final use of IE. Then go to options and type in the home page of your choice. I prefer google or even bing for home page, it is used the most.
Finally run spynomore (free to try, pay to have it remove) to see what is on your system that your antivirus missed. Likely all of your trojan apps missed them too. I use the detailed list to remove the trojans manually in windows hidden files and in the registry.

Yahoo has always been my homepage. All of a sudden I have ASK and none of my tabs are. I can't access my mail without going through several steps.


You probably installed a program that changed your homepage, I know several programs I have installed have asked me if I wanted to change my homepage. Just go back to yahoo and set it as the homepage and whenever you install programs watch out for the screen about changing the homepage (ask is the culprit I see the most.) Any more questions let me know, hope this helps.

Lost my yahoo mail,bing took over and i lost my emails


Hi,

Looks like your homepage has changed to Bing. In the addressbar, type in www.yahoo.com and press enter.

It should take you to the Yahoo screen, on the left hand side you can click on the mail icon.

If this is what you are referring to, you can change this to your homepage again. Go to Tools, Internet Options and then click on "Use Current" under the Homepage heading

Hope this helps, pls rate the solution
