Open your internet explorer, go to tools, internet options and in the popup window will come up with your home page highlighted. Delete the content in there and change it to yahoo, or whatever site you would like

Google search was my homepage, but now yahoo has taken over. How do I get back to google and get rid of yahoo

I strongly recommend you read GOOGLE REDIRECT VIRUS Although the page says 'things to prevent redirect virus' it is a good free method of protecting you computer from anything. How you change your default search depends on the browser but its pretty easy to do.

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.

How can I get rid of Ask Jeeves

If you click on View on the top menu of your browser and then Toolbars there should be a check mark next to Ask. If you click on Ask, the toolbar should be gone.

Once you do that I believe you can remove it totally by using the Add/Remove Programs from the Control Panel.

Thanks for using Fixya.

I have always used Google. I do not want Ask Jeeves, but have acquired it no doubt when doing something else. I now want it off my screen permanently

Sometimes deleting Ask program from Program files doesnt get rid of it.
If you are using Chrome, go Settings menu (icon of 3 lines on the right of the search bar) and select your Search Engine preference under Search
