In your browser click on tool/internet options. In the general tab click on use default for your home page.

Internet options can also be accessed via the control panel.

I keep losing Yahoo.com as my "home page". I have to re-set it as my home page 7-8 times/night. Help Please


Hi Nenitabrande,

This happens due to browser hijacker application or adware/spyware,

Therefore to remove this problem you should download Adaware or similar softwares and then these problem would be nailed probably.

Also keep updating your adaware application to the latest version and also if possible , re-install internet explorer from the ad remove options in the control panel and I am sure this would help.

Hope this helps ..:) Your feed back would be appreciated.

Why does Yahoo not show up as my home page when I sign in to the Internet?


There are two likely reasons. First, you don't have Yahoo set up as your home page. All browsers have a place where you can tell it what to use as your home page. In Firefox, pick Tools from the menu bar, then Options, and pick the General tab. There's a box where you can enter your home page. If you use Internet Explorer, click on Tools, then Internet Options, and then the General tab. If you're using another browser (Google Chrome, Safari), the Help information will tell you how to set your home page.

The second possibility is that some malware application has changed (hijacked) your home page. If your home page used to be Yahoo, and now it's not and you didn't change it, this is probably why. You can download MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware and scan your computer. If something has infected your computer, this is a good program to find and eliminate it.

All i was trying to do is get some pretty stuff on my facebook and now its like my default page or some thing as soon as i hit my internet tab tattoodle pops up i want my original back how do i get this...


Go to control panel open internet options the very first option is your home page you can click use default (if you do make sure it changes to msn.com) or you can type in your desired home page (like google.com) dont worry about http// just the site and .com will do. Then click apply and ok. Open a new browser window if it has not changed you hve been hijacked and need to scan your pc for viruses. Bitdefender.com has a great online scanner you can use.

Homepage changes from Google.com to Google.com/es


One thing I always do when changing home pages in IE7 is this, I open it and let whatever page is set as default to load [in your case [google.com/es], then I type in the page I want to set as my default page which in your case again should be [google.com]. The I go to the tools menu and [click] 'Internet Options', when the Window Appears Simply [Click] 'Use Current' and the browsers default page will change to the page you have currently open. I hope that helps

When I click on internet explorer, the machine sometimes freezes.


If IE does not go to your home page, then you have a BHO (hijacker). You need to run your anti- virus and spyware protection. Download Malware Bytes and run it.

Lost my Telus Home Page when I open Internet Explorer


In Internet Explorer, just go tools, internet options and under general tab you can make your home page whatever you want. Change it back to Telus. If it's not listed just type it in. You may have a virus that hijacked your home page or possibly spyware or malware. If this solved your problem as far as getting your home page back, please rate this as fixed. If you need more help with this just add a comment and I'll be glad to help you further. Thanks.
