Search being rerouted to Gateway/Google search engine home screen

Whenever I'm in a sight (signed into msn for example) & I'm trying to search for something (careerbuilder specific job postings) it keeps popping back to the Gateway/google search engine screen (which I never use) - I've try spy searches, deleting history etc... nothing stops this from happening so far! help!?!?!

    THANK YOU FOR YOUR PROMPT RESPONSE.I BOUGHT THE COMPUTER AT BEST BUY BUT IT IS A GATEWAY MX 6441. I HAVE NOT LOOKED AT TOOL BARS IN MY BROWSER TO REMOVE. WHAT SHOULD I BE LOOKING FOR?

    Unless we cut and paste a URL our searches end-up going  the gateway/google route and the content is never close to what we were originally searching for.  How do we stop this?

Go to add/remove programs and remove anything that reads google. It will probably read something like google tool bar or search. If you don't use it you won't miss it, and removing it will stop it from overriding the search engine you do use. If you need any more help let me know.

Lost all my facebook friends and trying to get reid of Ask as a search egine and I want to go back to Google search egine?


Hi David,
You can choose the search engine for internet browsing. The Browser you use will determine where you start and how you do that. I will show you two examples, 1. From the Windows Internet Explorer, and another from Google Chrome.

1. Win Int Exp.
From the menu (gear icon on top (RH), choose manage add-ons. The Manage Add-ons options box will pop up. Configure which search engine/ add-on etc. you want tp keep as your defaults.

2. Win Int Exp. You can change your home page by clicking on the menu, select Internet Options and from the Options box (Home page) type http://www.google.com

Try this and please rate me if my answers do help you. Thanks.

Why does msn open as browser when I open google search


Long and short your home page has been hijacked. The previous responses are all correct and you need to follow their advice with one extra step. Every time you download or install software, do it slowly and carefully reading EVERY page/window that opens so you don't just keep hitting enter and key past the point where it says " hey sucker if you don't read this and say no we are going to make changes you don't want" and this is the gospel truth...

Babylon has become my default search engine and I cannot change it back to Google (what is the difference between a search engine and a browser?


Hello,

A browser is the program you are using for browsing the internet. Examples of browsers are Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. Search engine are the website or add-ons to a web browser that you use to search the internet. Examples of search engines are Google, Yahoo and Bing.

Please indicate the browser you are using so I can instruct you how to change back your search engine to Google.

Use Firefox.  Explorer is riddled with more holes than swiss cheese, but if you insist.  Uninstall explorer, then, download the latest edition of explorer.

I get oops! This link appears broken. Happens with Google and Google Chrome. Could it be a virus? I also cannot search msn.com using Bing?


No, it is probably not a virus. Links are addresses for other pages that may not be typed correctly, or the web site/page was moved or no longer exists. (See below for clarification on unexpected results.) If you use MS Explorer, it allows you to choose primary search engines. After updating Explorer, you can keep Google as primary, but Bing will be easily accessed by clicking on the Google Icon in the search box. A menu will drop down and show Bing as an option. Also, you should be able to type Bing into any search engine and search from the Bing homepage. If you are clicking on a bing search on the MSN home page and being blocked, I'll betcha Microsoft would love to know that. Lastly, there is such a thing as Browser Hijackers. If you click on something or suddenly find yourself in an unexpected place after using a trusted search engine, that would be a hint. The solution is to keep all software updated to avoid lapses in security that allow Bugs into your system.

I have internet connection, but can't access any search engines!


I have the similar problem with you. I realise whenever MSN Live Messenger (the msn i'm using) is used, internet cant be accessed. Even if can, it's problem just a few seconds, and the same problem occurs again. My suggestion is (if that's the case for yours), close the msn. Exit the msn icon at the bottom right corner of the screen. Wait a while. Now you should be able to access internet. Try access msn via ebuddy or webmessenger (web browser). Though can' be able to draw or voice clips, but you are able to chat with your friends or whoever in your list somehow, and also group chat (ebuddy). =] Hope it helps. It works on mine, but i'm not sure if it works for yours. x.x
