    No updates just suddenly became unavailable.

    When I click the 'Internet' icon, Explorer opens with the tab saying 'Connecting' at the bottom left it says "Connecting to 74 117 114 74" then the progrees bar stops at four blocks and the unavailable message appears.

    Hi,

    Reset Internet Explorer.

    To do this open IE, on the top right hand side click on Tools, then select Internet Options. Click on the Advanced Tab and then click on Reset.

    This will reset all the settings in IE so if you have any favourites/bookmarks saved its a good idea to back them up.

    You will get a warning about resetting IE but just carry on and reset it.

    Once your done restart IE and if the home page is msn.com get back to for instruction on how to set your home if you don't know how to do it.


    Good luck.

How do I make google my home page


Hello.

To make Google your homepage, you must select the entire Google URL (https://www.google.co.uk/?gfe_rd=cr&ei=kfH1VImdNIeFOuz_gagI&gws_rd=ssl) and then drag that URL to the homepage icon located on your Internet Browser.

Google may also ask you if you want to set it as your homepage, you simply say Yes.

Google home page


Web Browsers all vary in different ways but in almost all cases, to change your home page you simply need to go into settings and type in http://www.google.co.uk into the 'Homepage' section.

In Google Chrome, the settings menu can be accessed by clicking Settings which is 3 horizontal lines in the top right corner of the screen.

So what's the problem? Just type in on your Internet page
www.google.co.uk (if in UK) If you want to use it often make it a Favorite, or set it as your Home Page.

Make google my home page


Hi Julia

Thanks for a straight-forward question.
Open Safari and wait till the page loads up.
Type in www.google.co.uk (or .com if you're not in the UK) and wait for the page to load.
Once fully loaded go to the Safari menu and select "Preferences"
Choose the "General" button and look for the line that says "Home Page"
Beneath it is a button called "Set To Current Page" give it a prod and the job is done. Close prefernces and open a new webpage to check that it works OK.

Easy peasy.
