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.

Need parts for American Gardner Yardstick model YS24. Specificly the line head assembly.


How to make a spool cap cover for an American Gardener YS24 (Weedeater XLT24) Trimmer

If you've tried to buy parts lately for your trimmer, you've noticed they are harder and harder to find. In fact, I was unable to find a spool cap cover, so I came up with this work-around.

Before you start this project, it's important to save any parts from the old spool cover-especially the top, if you can. The top is needed to make a spacer for the new cover that will still allow you to "bump" out the string.

I used a Craftsman 71-64215 replacement spool retainer to make my new spool cover cap. It fits the Craftsman C3 19.2 volt 74381 String Trimmer (CRAC06540 spool cap). I found this cap at a local Ace Hardware, but apparently it is also getting hard to find-I googled the Ace Hardware number to find it on the web-"7314644 cap." I bought a couple extra from HardwareDistributors.com. Note that the diameter of the cover at the tabs is the same diameter of the old cover-although the diameter of the cap is slightly larger.

Take the old cover, and using the tab from the old cover, mark a line on the new tabs the same width as the old. Make sure you center the old tab on the new tab so you will remove the same amount of plastic from each side of the new tab. I used a dremel tool with the cutoff wheels to cut the tabs on the new cap to the same size as the old cap.

If you look at the new cap, there is a round plastic circle ridge on the bottom of the cap. If you look closely you can see a slight indention, or discoloration on the top of the new cap matching the circle on the bottom. You need to cut the plastic out of the new cap matching the plastic circle. I used a dremel tool with a metal cylindrical grinder to do that.

Once you get everything cut, put the old cap into the new cap so that the spokes face down toward the similar spokes on the top of the spool. You may have to trim the old cap so it fits into the new cap.

Finally, snap everything together into your trimmer-don't forget the spring. Note that the new cap has about a 1/8 inch gap above the spool. However, this doesn't seem to affect the trimmer-and you can still "bump" the head to eject the string.
