SOURCE: Default internet explorer home page

Here are some things you can try. It sounds like you have picked up a snoop and some can go as deep as your system registries.
In IE go to the Tools>Internet Options>Programs>Manage Add-ons and see if there is any reference to that site there. If not there is a last resort possible fix, once again Tools>internet Options>Advanced then press reset at the bottom, this will set the browser back to new.

Hope this helps...

How do I remove ask form been my homepage and put google back as my homepage?


You downloaded some thing and you didn't remove the check mark from ASK Toolbar, or similar which was bundled with whatever you downloaded.

you might like to download and run MalwareBytes Anti-malware. It is free, or at least you only need the free version. I have the paid version because it prevents malicious intrusions like you have found. https://www.malwarebytes.org/downloads/

Now do i reset google as my web page


You likely have malware on your PC which has hijacked your home page.
  • Download Malwarebytes (free), and have it scan your pc
  • Delete/quarantine anything it finds
  • Download SuperAntispyware (free), and have it scan your PC
  • Delete/quarantine anything it finds.

To reset your home page:
  • Open the page you want as your home page in your Browser
  • Next, go to your browser settings (in google, its the "gear" on the Upper RH corner of your browser; in IE, also click on the "gear" and select "internet options)
  • In the section for setting home page, select "use Current" (the page you opened in the 1st step)
  • Hit OK
If the home page you set (google) doesn't appear, you will need to have further Malware/virus removal work done.

Want to remove ask toolbar


It would be helpful to know your browser, but here goes...
1) Open the control panel and go to uninstall a program (or Add Remove Programs). Find Ask Tool Bar AND Ask Toolbar updater and uninstall them. While in the uninstall section, look for any mention of ASK among the publishers. You may have to uninstall any such you find, particularly if these two uninstalls do not fix the problem.
2) As the browser you are using has installed extensions and changed the home page, you have to get rid of the extension and change the home page. In IE, click the gear icon or select Tools from the menu (XP). Pick Toolbars and extensions. Go to Manage Add-ins. Disable those associated with Ask individually by right clicking on them and chosing disable. In Chrome, you would be going to Tools and Extensions, similarly. You have to change the default search engine back to Google by going into Settings in Chrome. In Firefox, you click on Tools and select Add-ons, get Add-ons, and select SearchReset from the list and install it.
3) Run an adaware clearner to remove any residual registry settings. Pick one from a site you have confidence in.

My computer has been slammed with a Google home page when I had a Yahoo home page and was very happy with it-why?


You probably installed some software and allowed that software (such as Adobe Reader) to install the Google Toolbar.

Close Internet Explorer
Open "Control Panel"
Open "Add/Remove Programs"
Select "Google Toolbar"
Uninstall it
Start Internet Explorer
Change the "home" page back to 'www.yahoo.com'.

Hi why can i not connect to google home page when i click on google chrome it work for my internet but when my mail i open in windows live mail,and i want to link to their web sights it will not connect...


In order to change the home page for Google Chrome, simply press the wrench icon and change the homepage.
As for the Windows Live Mail issue, I'm guessing that the link for it in your start menu isn't working properly, so I'd suggest you uninstall the program in your Control Panel/Add or Remove Programs and reinstall it from http://explore.live.com/windows-live-mail?os=other
