Here's how you can get rid of ASK toolbar and set Google as you homepage:

    1.To uninstall Ask Toolbar program from Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7, click the "Start" button, then click on the "Control Panel" menu option.
    If you are using Windows 8, simply drag your mouse pointer to the right edge of the screen, select Search from the list and search for "control panel" .Or you can right-click on a bottom left hot corner (formerly known as the Start button) and select Control Panel from there.
    2.When the "Control Panel" window opens click on the "Uninstall a program" option under "Programs" category. This option is shown by the arrow in the image below. If you are using the "Classic View" of the Control Panel, then you would double-click on the "Programs and Features" icon instead.
    3.When the "Programs and Features" or the "Uninstall a Program" screen is displayed, scroll through the list of currently installed programs and uninstall Ask Toolbar, Ask Toolbar Updater, Ask Updater and any other recently installed or unknown programs from your computer. That should uninstall Ask toolbar from your computer. You'll also need to remove extensions from your browsers. Refer to this article which gives detailed instructions on how you can remove Ask toolbar from your browser as well as what to do if you can't remove it:
    http://malwaretips.com/blogs/remove-ask-toolbar-and-search/
    For setting Google as home page, once Ask toolbar has been removed, just open your browser and paste this link in the address bar:
    http://www.google.com/homepage/

    It'll automatically detect the browser you're using and give you instructions on how to set Google as your homepage.

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

Google search was my homepage, but now yahoo has taken over. How do I get back to google and get rid of yahoo


I strongly recommend you read http://google-redirect-virus.info/prevent-google-redirect-virus.htm GOOGLE REDIRECT VIRUS Although the page says 'things to prevent redirect virus' it is a good free method of protecting you computer from anything. How you change your default search depends on the browser but its pretty easy to do.

Iwant google back get rid of ask


For Google Chrome, go to settings and find the category "Appearance". Under it should have "show home" and "always show the bookmarks bar". In between them should be the website thats your homepage and you can change it by pressing the change button and inserting google.com as your homepage7d156424-57fb-4fe5-aa98-09cae69467e4.png

You haven't specified the browser you are using. (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, etc.)
