Yes, sometimes by downloading software it will change your search engine. What you want to do is to go to settings. Depending on whether your using internet explorer, Firefox or chrome determines where your settings are located. Internet explorer you need to go to the right - there should be a picture of a gear click on and the go into manage add-ons and then change it there.

My computer (Win XP) doesn't recognize my nikon d40


I have to ask 1st, why are you connecting your camera direct? Is it to download your pictures? Anyway it should'nt matter. Did you download the Nikon Transfer and or ViewNX CD that the camera came with? If not, that may be the cause. Another thing is your computer operating system being Vist and or XP with or without SP2 and if Mac it should be 10.3.9, 10.4.11 or 10.5.2

Windows xp logo will start to load then......


To solve this will require more information from you. The Blue screen is Windows way of telling you that it has a driver issue with a basic component, usually your video card. Did you recently make any hardware changes? If so please let me know what was changed.

When windows first boots, you can repeatedly press the F8 key until you see a menu giving you choices of windows booting. You need to select Safe Mode. Safe mode should allow you to at least boot without a blue screen. The blue screen could also be cause by a virus or other software.

Microsoft has a description of Safe mode here;
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315222
but here is a quick snippet
To use a Safe Boot option, follow these steps:
  1. Restart your computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard. On a computer that is configured for booting to multiple operating systems, you can press the F8 key when the Boot Menu appears.
  2. Select an option when the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, and then press ENTER.
  3. When the Boot menu appears again, and the words "Safe Mode" appear in blue at the bottom, select the installation that you want to start, and then press ENTER.
