You have been hijacked. You can try to eradicate it using Hijackthis http://www.hijackthis.com/
or

Malwarebytes http://www.malwarebytes.org/

another solution that may work and is very easy would be to use the system restore found in "Start\all programs\accessories\system tools."

Just select a restore point before you experienced the problem.

How do I change back to google


If you are simply using Google Chrome, the easiest way is to go to where it says "Search". Next to it there should be a drop down box. Click on Google.

If you are using other browsers and have other issues, the following may help.

If Firefox, try clicking on Get started on the following page:

http://www.google.com.au/intl/en/homepage/search/sp-firefox.html

It also depends whether your present start page has come about because of some tool bar or ad-in you have installed. If the later is the case, you may have to uninstall that toolbar. Some toolbars are so persistent that changing gets tedious. If the process gets really painful, consider the possibility of going back to a system restore point set before you made the change. (You would have to reinstall software installed after that restore point.)

For the more adventurous, you could manually change a lot of settings particular to which browser you are using and what ad-ins are in play. Try googling "change my search to Google in "fill in the blank" browser.

I keep getting a message that Internet Explorere is operating with no add-ons. But, when I check, they are enabled. Also, I cannot get pop-ups on Ancestry.com, but my pop-up blocker is not on.


Try uninstalling and reinstalling the program. If this doesn't work. Try using a different browser like FireFox. You can import your bookmarks from ie. If this doesn't work. Back up your files to an external storage and do a full system restore. This returns your computer to an out of the box state.

Wireless router


Every single user of the the Internet (Wide Area Network) and every member of an Intranet (Local Area Network) must be assigned an Internet Protocol (ip) address to communicate with other computers. Computer to computer connections are called 'ad hoc' and have cables or short-range wireless, like infrared media. Hubs are like splitters you might use to use one phone jack for two or more telephones. Switches and routers get intelligent control using a MAC address which is a fixed  firmware identity (unless cloned) to route packets of information. Do a Google search on the 'OSI Model' if you wish to learn how all this stuff turns 'ones' and 'zeros' which is all a computer knows into fancy web sites. ~Steve Medley

This is only an idea, but if you aren't on dial-up you can download 2 very good FREE programs. Go to download.com and enter AVG Free into search, Download the file, it's about 46MB. Save it to your temp folder (right click Start/explore/ (C) / Windows / Temp make a new folder in Temp called "software' or something. Then in download.com search for ad-aware free (it's by lavasoft) Save also to (C)/windows/temp/software.

Now install. When installing AVG select advanced instead of standard when you get to the box that gives the choice, when you get to where it confirms if you want to download and install the free AVG toolbar, untick (don't install it) Select USE FREE when you get to the registration box, and also don't register your details (unless you want emails from them)
Update it but don't run a scan yet.

Ad-aware by Lavasoft. Install it. Make sure the correct plug in's are ticked or not re what email software you use when you get to that box. Don't register this one either.

When they are both installed go to the desktop, you will have two shortcut icons for Ad-aware, keep the one that looks like a green world and delete the one that looks like a sheild with a beetle on it.

Open Lavasoft and Update it.
Open AVG and Update it.

Restart your computer in Safe mode (usually by pressing F8 at startup) Run a Full Scan from Ad-aware. Select and delete Critical and Privacy Spyware when scan completes.

Run an AVG full computer scan. Delete or remove anthing found.

Restart in normal Windows. From now on keep them updated and run at the minimum weekly scans (Smart Scans in Ad-aware) These two programs will cover virus and spyware very well, you can delete or disable anything else.

Hope this helps, I have used these two free products for over 5 years with no problems. Make sure your Microsoft Updates are current.

Sounds like you have spyware, adware, and maybe even a virus. Try using lavasofts ad-aware personal edition, or spybot search and destroy, or avg anti virus. To get rid of the infection. If that doesn't work maybe try Norton or you might have to re-install windows. Sorry try those and see what you can find. Hope this helps. M~
