SOURCE: The touch screen homepage on my computer doesn't work anymore.

Hi

When you sat the screen doesnt work anymore. What is the exact problem? When your initially start your PC do you notice any programs not appearing that where there before?

Have you also tried wiping the screen gently with screen wipes as fingerprints over time can cause some issues.

Thanks

Andy

You need to provide the operating system and the browser information. There is usually an Internet Options control panel somewhere in the operating system. It usually has the option to enter the address of a new home page on the top layer of the menus in the control panel, then it gives you the option to apply the change.

Getting ask homepage messed up my homepage get out of ask


Assuming you are using Internet explorer do this

Got to Tools (ALT+T) in browser
Pick Internet Options in Menu
In the General Tab you will see Box marked "Home Page"
Delete what is in there and insert http://www.google.com
Press Apply Button at the bottom of the Window.
Then Press OK to get back to Browser.
Close Browser and your new home page will be Google.com
If you cannot get it changed this way, then you have a virus which is re-installing ask.com as a home page.
Install
SUPERAntiSpyware Remove Malware Remove Spyware AntiMalware AntiSpyware...
to get rid of it. Then change the home page again.

How do I make google my search engine instead of Ask.com?


To set your homepage to google using IE go to the gear icon/internet options set homepage to (http://www.google.ca/ in Canada or .com or whatever country you are in) Using Firefox Firefox icon/Options/options general tab home page type (http://www.google.ca/ in Canada or .com or whatever country you are in) Using Opera Opera icon/settings/preferences general tab home page type (http://www.google.ca/ in Canada or .com or whatever country you are in) Using Safari either you have a set of horizontal bars at the top right then choose settings/ On startup open a specific page or pages, set pages sometimes the gear icon is at the top right if so choose preferences/homepage type (http://www.google.ca/ in Canada or .com or whatever country you are in) Using Chrome Gear icon/preferences/homepage type (http://www.google.ca/ in Canada or .com or whatever country you are in) If you have ask you likely have trojans, hjackers. To remove them get a free to use copy of spynomore (use it to locate only) to remove what it finds you have to unhide hidden folders and system files and delete them manually also you have to learn to use the registry to delete what it finds manually. in 64 bit computers many items will not have the exact path but will be in wow6432node

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.
