Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

In the past, when I logged on I went straight to the Yahoo Home Page. Now when I log on I get an AOL screen and I have to get to Yahoo using the Favourites option. I never asked to be involved in AOL. How did this happen - was this an automatic Compaq update - if it is I never got prior notice and I do not know what to do with this AOL Page. Thanks.

Hi,
If you are using windows Outlook express, Internet surf to the page you want to have as your home page. Click on the menu

-tools
-Internet options
-general

At the very top of this window you should be able to choose your home page.

My Windows xp version offers me the option to just

"click here to use current as home page". Then:

-apply
-okay

Your version may be different.

If you are not an outlook user or don't understand any of this please just post as much info as you can about what you know about your computor and I'll get back to you.

    There are many different insidious ways software gets you to agree to have their page as your Home Page. It's not evil, it's just irritating. We can change it.

If it works normally in Safe Mode, that is the place to run antivirus checks in depth, and also use Malwarebytes AV. Do updates for these before running.
If this fails, come back here for more help

I like to have yahoo as my home page


Log on to the internet. Toward upper right side should be a word like Tools. Click there. Then go down to Internet Options and click there. The first thing you'll see is home page. Highlight and delete that address and then type in www.yahoo.com. At the bottom of screen click Apply. Close your browser, then reopen it and it should go to Yahoo.

Try these steps: Update Adobe Flash Player Internet Explorer and Java script . Clear Explorer cache, cookies, and browsing history. Some find that a return to classic mail improves things. You could also try an alternative browser. Hope this helps!!
Some additional troubleshooting information and steps include:
  • The current problem is with Yahoo. Do not reinstall software on your computer
  • Sign out of Yahoo. Clear your cookies. Sign back into Yahoo.
  • Try logging in from Y! Login
  • Try logging in from Yahoo! Answers - Home
  • Force a browser refresh on the Yahoo mail page. While holding down the control key hit F5.
  • If you can not reply, try starting a new email to your contact.
  • Refresh the Yahoo Mail page before you try to compose a new email.
  • If you use Yahoo or another Yahoo compatible IM messenger, use the check mail link from that software to login to your email.

AOL Home Page


go to tools menu in the menu bar in internet explorer, then go to internet options. Set your home page as you like in the internet options box.

Alternatively locate internet options inside control panel, it will open same box.
Here is an example of how internet options windows looks like:
