A lot of pages stopped working with Internet Explorer 8 and if your using Windows XP, that's as high as you can go. Maybe try Google Chrome? It's faster the IE.

How do I remove ask.com?


Before you do anything, make sure all browsers are closed. Check the Task Manager to make sure none of the browsers are open. (Maybe you should print the directions out first, or use a different device to display this page)
Then, open up Control Panel and go to "Uninstall a program" (Add or Remove Programs if you are still on Windows XP). In the list of applications, find and uninstall Ask Toolbar Updater and Ask Toolbar. If you have already done this and you still have a problem, look for any applications in the list that has "Ask" in the Publisher field. With the software gone, the next step is to clean up the Web browser. The toolbar installed several browser extensions, changed your default homepage to nl.ask.com, and changed the default search engine to use Ask.com
Preferably use ccleaner to remove ask.com, then run a registry clean with ccleaner. Also, you might want to open up firefox, then tools>restart with add-ons disabled>reset click apply.

I accidentally change my browser,restriction is the message appear in my windows,how do i set this into my default?


As we all know, when the Mozilla Firefox is installed, another version called "Mozilla Firefox (Safe Mode)" is installed. But most firefox users don't know it's importance and would consider it to run in Safe Mode. This feature is also used to Change the Firefox settings/preferences.

If you've messed up with the security settings, add-ons, etc..etc.. we have to reset all the settings from the Mozilla Firefox (Safe Mode). To do this, follow the steps below:

For windows xp

Click "Start" then "Run" and type in "firefox -safe-mode" [Note: one space after "firefox"] and press enter. A new window will open up (shown below)

You can select whatever you want to restore, but if you only need to reset the changes you've made to the "Preferences", then simply select (check mark) the "Reset all user preferences to Firefox defaults" and click "Make Changes and Restart". Once you click the "Make Changes and Restart", firefox will restart.

If your operating system isn't Windows XP, then the commands are as follows:

Windows Vista and Windows 7

Click "Start" then "Start Search" and type in "firefox.exe -safe-mode" (one space after firefox.exe).

Mac OS

Open, "Application" and "Utilities" then "Terminal" and type in "/Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox -safe-mode" and press enter"

Linux

Open "Terminal" then type in "/path/to/firefox/firefox -safe-mode"


Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.
