1 Go to tools on the top right, then settings.
2 Go to "Appearance" and you'll see the home button. Make sure this is clicked. To the right of this click "change" and set what home page you want.
3 Now to get rid of the "one 8". Go to your google icon in "start > all programs and left click Google Chrome. This brings up the Google Chrome icon.
4 Right click the icon and then left click "properties".
5 Click on "shortcut". Below that you'll see "target". The target shold end with the words ........... \chrome.exe"
6 Delete everything after this as that's where the "one 8 is probably lurking.

Any time you get a different home page or start page, this is where you'll usually find the offending program.

ps ... in your settings, check that the "one 8" isn't in your list of search engines. If it is, delete it. Any problems, get back to me.

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.

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 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.
