It depends on the browser, but assuming Safari since this is a Mac:

Click on Safari in your Safari menu, located at the top of your screen. When the drop-down menu appears, choose Preferences.
Select General from the Preferences menu, which is now overlaying your browser window. Once General is selected, you will notice a section labeled Home Page in the main window of the Preferences dialog.
Directly to the right of the "Home Page" label is an edit field containing your current home page URL.
To modify this address, simply erase the contents of the edit field and replace it with the desired web address.
Directly below this edit field you will see a button labeled Set to Current Page. Clicking this button will change your home page setting to whatever page you are currently viewing within the Safari browser.
Once you have completed your changes, close the Safari Preferences dialog by clicking the red circle/x located in the top left hand corner of the box.

How to uninstall genieo from a mac


In finder go to Utilities, then Activity Monitor, then when you see Genieo select it, then select the RED quit button. It will ask you if you "really want to quit Genieo" then simply quit.


Then quit Activity Monitor.


After that, go into your Application folder and drag Genieo to the trash. Then empty trash.


If you are using Safari and it opens to the Genieo page, in the Safari drop down, select preferences, General Tab.


You can then see what is set as your Safari home page. If that page shows Genieo then change it. You may have to go within Safari to what page you want as a home first in order to make it your current page, then select Set to Current Page and that will become your web page when you first open Safari.


I do not know if this will remove all Genieo files. Hope this helps!

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.

How do I get rid of unwanted ASK search engine


Hello,
You can uninstall it from your programs. What you need to do is go to start then control panel once the new window comes up go to uninstall programs and look for ask search engine and uninstall.
Once this is done sometimes it will open your browser and ask you why you uninstalled it etc.. Just exit the page and don't worry about it.
If it still exist depending on what web browser you got you can go to the add on page and uninstall it there if the first option does not work..
