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

IE7 Home Page hijacked by a Dell advertising page


This is some advice I found after researching on Web: If I were you, I would get SpyBot Search And Destroy, and Ad-Aware 6 They are both Free award winning programs. But GET BOTH IF I WERE YOU. [Ad-aware is better in the sense that it finds more things and is updated alot more often] But Spybot is able to find a few things that Ad-aware Cant also. So, Get those 2 programs, and Update them. Be sure to customize Ad-Aware's Scanning settings to make sure it scans everything possible.
I would suggest scanning with Ad-Aware First, then find those extra few registry keys that Ad-aware couldnt detect, with SpyBot. Also, A VERY good program is SpySweeper. That has ALOT of definitions.

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.

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:

The box at the top is for changing home page
