Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have been trying to get Google back as my home page. Somehow I was switched to something called Ask as my home page and have not been able to reinstall Google as my home page

It all started when I tried to go to gmail and was instructed to establish a new email address and password. I thought this made necessary due to problems due to "heartbleed". There have been a number of problems since then. At first I couldn't transfer my old email material to the new account but now I am able to use my old account. Now I can't get google.com back as my homepage. I would like to do this because I have difficulty getting to my usual locations with the new ASK homepage.

SOURCE: how to take out inbox.com and add google.com/gmail back into my windox xp

Open up your internet explorer, go to the tools tab, select internet options. Under the general tab of internet options there is the homepage address. Type in the address you want, you can also put another address in below the first address and you can tab between home pages. I hope this is what you are looking for. Please rate my answer so I get points for it.

Why im on Ask not google?


if you mean when searching in the address bar or "omnibox" as they seem to call it:
click the three lines at the top right corner, settings, (a new tab will open), the 4th group down is Search, you're set to Ask, just change it to Google. Just close the tab, it saves the change instantly.
If you mean the home page, also go to 3 lines, settings, and the second group "on startup" select "open a specific page or set of pages" and then click Set Pages. hover over any pages you don't want to open at startup and click the X to remove, and in the box for Add New Page, enter http://www.google.com/ then click ok, and close the tab.
If you mean something else, let me know exactly what you want and I'l try to help.

I wonder why my google home page instead of ask.com ,how can i get the google back to home page ?


It's because you changed your homepage. Go to settings on your browser and there will be a button called "change homepage" or "add homepage" something like that. Once you click that you will be asked to type the address and remove the existing one and type the one you want! In your case it's google.com

if this doesn't work maybe you have ask toolbar installed. You will have to remove it!

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.

Hi there. Go to your "start" menu bottom left of your screen. Next, click "Settings" and then "Control Panel". Look for the "Internet Options"icon and double click. On "Homepage" enter the website address you require as your Homepage and press "Apply" Hope this helps!
