This is a typical way to ensure there is nothing for free.
Navigate to the page you want as home page, then copy the address. Go to settings in your browser and paste the address into the home page address. That will stamp on the other unwanted address and use your address as your home page.
It is all about advertising and numbers.

How do I make google my home pag


Hello Peter,

In order to prevent programs like AVG from changing your homepage please pay attention to those options during the installing of these programs. They will often ask you to install additional toolbars or change your homepage.

To change your homepage please do the following:
  1. Open your internet browser
  2. Open the options/preferences
  3. Usually the field for homepages is in the general tab or first menu you get when you open the options
  4. Enter your desired homepage address in the homepage field
  5. Save your changes
  6. Enjoy your new (or old) homepage!
Hope this helped you!

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!

I want to get rid of "ASK" and set Google as my hopmepage


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.

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 have a hp notebook laptop. i accidently made google my homepage. how do i make the original "hp homepage" my homepage again?


go into your browser's setting to change or set homepage for that browser. there may even be a "reset to default (or previous)" setting, otherwise you will need to manually enter the web page you want. Note: many software installations change your homepage against your wishes and without asking your permission. Use good antivirus, firewall, and spyware prevention programs to avoid this.
