What search engine are you using?

If you are using Google, then go to and click settings in the lower right hand corner, Safe Search Filters will be the very first option, there you can enable or disable the feature.

Let me know if this resolves the issue

3 Answers has become my homepage and i hate it. I've tried to set google back as my homepage, but it stays as crawler. How do i fix this?

You probably have the crawler virus. Go to and download the free version of MalwareBytes. Install it and update it. After it is updated, run a scan. Updating it is pretty straight forward. Let me know if you have any questions.

My ACER aspire 4736Z is blinking purple and blue at the bottom.There's no icons show at the bottom, instead it has a thin line with stripes.I tried to open the icons in the control panel,but I can't open...

if this just started and you are using Windows, try to boot to the last known-config if available. restart the laptop, press F8 a few times as it restart, then select Last Know-Good Configuration. If it's not there, try to boot in safe mode and attempt a system restore. I'd also recommend running your updated anti-virus and anti-malware applications. If nothing helps, it may also need an operating system repair or reinstall. Hope this helps you move ahead.
