When turned on home page won't come up stuck on voyagerlll


This can be a couple of things:
1- If you installed software recently, sometimes they sneak in during the install to change your home page and search engine to third party vendors. To fix, simply go into your browser settings and change your homepage back.
For Internet explorer-Go to Tools>Internet Options>change your homepage.

For Chrome Click the 3 dots in the upper right corner>Settings>update your homepage

2- If that doesn't resolve your issues, scan for malware\viruses that could be changing your homepage along with other settings.

How do I make google my home pag


Hello Peter,

In order to prevent programs like AVG from changing your homepage please pay attention to those options during the installing of these programs. They will often ask you to install additional toolbars or change your homepage.

To change your homepage please do the following:
  1. Open your internet browser
  2. Open the options/preferences
  3. Usually the field for homepages is in the general tab or first menu you get when you open the options
  4. Enter your desired homepage address in the homepage field
  5. Save your changes
  6. Enjoy your new (or old) homepage!
Hope this helped you!

Yahoo has always been my homepage. All of a sudden I have ASK and none of my tabs are. I can't access my mail without going through several steps.


You probably installed a program that changed your homepage, I know several programs I have installed have asked me if I wanted to change my homepage. Just go back to yahoo and set it as the homepage and whenever you install programs watch out for the screen about changing the homepage (ask is the culprit I see the most.) Any more questions let me know, hope this helps.

Go to your control panel, add and remove programs, and uninstall the incredimail program.
