Open IE, go to the page you want to make the default/Home, click on the arrow to the right of the Home button, located on the far right hand side of your IE Tab Bar , select the option labeled Add or Change Home Page.... , select the first option and click Yes.

Facebook has taken over my website, want to remove facebook


Hello and welcome to fixya.

If you are referring to the default home page that shows immediately when you open up internet explorer, firefox or any other browser, you can un-set facebook from your default HomePage very easily like this:

1. Internet Explorer 8 (and earlier versions): Go to Tools-->Internet Options-->Then to the first tab ("General") replace the part that says http://www.facebook.com with any link of your choice (eg: www.google.com or www.bing.com)

2. Firefox (all versions): Go to Tools-->Options-->Then to general tab the Startup section reads "Home Page" to a point and this is set also to http://www.facebook.com. Again, replace this with a link of your own choice (google or bing).

Regards from FixYa.

Hello sir my nokia 2690 security code is for get how to unlock the phone.


Set back to factory default settings ,if you look in your manual for your phone it should tell you what the default code is if your requires one.

Failing this you need to go on the internet on the Nokia website and place ........................
............factory default setting codes for Nokia 2690, you will also need to remove your phones battery and write down the serial number and any code numbers for your phone that are on the reverse of your phone not your battery. before you go on the internet.

Search engines redirecting to other sites. I ran the latest Malwarebytes, ccleaner and norton.


First update Malwarebytes, then run a "Full Scan". If the PC needs to re-boot after Malwarebytes completes the full scan then do so.

Right click on the Internet Explorer Icon (do not open the internet explorer) and from the bottom of the drop down menu select "Internet Options". The internet options settings will be displayed on the "General" tab and you will see "Home Page" with a box showing the home page(s) that the browser is using, and remove any that are not the website with your home page, and if your home page is not there then remove them all. You can type in your home page if you know the URL and if you use Yahoo it would be http://my.yahoo.com/ and if you do not know your home page URL then leave the box empty for now.

Then, look down below the "Home Page" box and below the browsing history, you will see "Search" with a magnifying glass and it will say "Change search defaults" with a "Settings" button. Select the button and the "Change Search Defaults" settings will pop up. From the Change Search Default settings there will be a box with a list of "Search Providers", and remove everything that is not "Live Search" or your home page web site such as Yahoo or Google, and then reset the search provider that has your home page website as the "Default" search provider, and then select OK from the "Change Search Defaults". If your home page search provider is not listed then remove them all except for "Live Search" and at least the web browser will open up to a Microsoft search page, and from there you can navigate to your home page web site and then set it as your home page.

Then, select the "Advanced" tab from the right of the "Internet Options" menu and just below the advanced settings box select the "Restore advanced settings" button, and then select the "OK" button and the "Internet Options" should close.

You should now be able to open the Internet Explorer and the web browser should open up to the search provider that you set as the "Default" search provider, and from there go to your home page and then set that web page as your "Home Page".

If you have a registry cleaner you should now run the program to remove any malicious or invalid registry entries, and I would suggest using "Registry Mechanic".

I would strongly suggest that you delete the norton security from your PC and try this security program, it is a free edition but that does not effect the scanner or what it will remove, and the paid version only has a few more options that are nice but not really necessary, and this progam will get rid of a lot of infections that norton could not remove from your PC, but do not just take my word for it, try it out and see for yourself, and if you are not satisfied with how the program performs then you can always delete it, and it will work a lot better at protecting your PC than than norton ever will.

You can download AVG Fee Edition from this site:

What is a default browser? when i open hotmail it says hotmail default.


The default browser is the program that Windows uses by default when you open web pages or websites. If you've never changed it before than Internet Explorer is your default, so whenever you click on an internet link (from an email, in a Word document, in a PDF, etc...) than Internet Explorer opens that page. If you install another browser (Firefox, Chrome, Opera....) then it may ask if you if you want to set it as default when you install it. Why Hotmail is asking/talking about a default I'm not certain. If you have the desire to use a browser other than internet explorer than you should set it as your default. The procedure for that will var depending on your operating system.

Ressolving and getrid of antispyware"virus heat.com" and icons in the notification area of task bar


In internet explorer go to the tools menu and then internet options menu. Go to the programs tab and look for internet explorer being the default browser. Click make default. If you want you can take the tick out of the box which says inform you if its not default.

You may also want to go into control panel and choose add/remove programs and find the offending program and remove it. Be careful you dont remove anything else.
