Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I cannot use yahoo, google, or any other search engines to search the internet. I can use known addresses, and search engines only for a page, like looking for videos on youtube. I have mcafee for virus, pop-up and spyware, but the only firewall is from my wireless router, and there has never been a problem.

Hi,

Turn off the Firewall and use another browser.If you have IE, use Firefox and vice-versa.

There can be 3 different observations :-

1. You would be able to access all the sites. Perfect. Problem fixed.

2. You would not be able to view search engines but you can access known sites as you described above. We need to take care of the outbound internet traffic.

3. You cannot access Internet. This confirms an issue with connection. You need to reinstall the whole set up. Reinstall the Firewall and Settings.

Let me know, once done with all the above!!

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Do accept the solution, if 100% satisfied from my service.

My other pages don't open with google.com when I open a new window,


Opening a new tab or window on Google Ghrome will not automatically open your set homepage(default google.com). If all you want to do is use the search engine, Google Chrome's address bar doubles as a Google search bar. You can type either full addresses and search terms into that bar.
You can also click the home button(a picture of a house) to get to Google from any page provided it is still set as your homepage.

Hi there. Go to your "start" menu bottom left of your screen. Next, click "Settings" and then "Control Panel". Look for the "Internet Options"icon and double click. On "Homepage" enter the website address you require as your Homepage and press "Apply" Hope this helps!
