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!?!?!

    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.

I do not want G Chrome. I am trying to make Google my home and browser I am a novice


From your question, it is understood that you want to set Google.com as homepage on your web browser. Also, whenever you try to open your browser, you are getting Ask search.

For your information, Ask search is a kind of virus which infects your browser and changes browser settings without your knowledge. Hence, it is vital to remove it completely from your computer. To do this, the following link can be helpful:

Once you have removed Ask from your computer, you can set Google.com as you homepage by following the instructions mentioned on the following link:

NEED TO SET UP A GOOGLE ACCOUNT


Google started as a search engine and since has added many applications. All these applications are available to you once you set up your Google account. Setting up an account is easy.

Point your web browser to the main Google web page. The main Google page is the starting point for searches and other applications and features. You can sign up for an account, manage your Gmail or start a Google group from here. Find "Sign In" at the top right-hand corner. This is a link and will lead you to where you can sign into an account or create one. Fill out the required form. Google ask you for a current email address, password, word verification and location. They also have the terms of service. You must read and agree to these before going on. Verify your email address. Once you have submitted the completed form, Google will generate an email to your email address. It will have a web address that you must visit to verify that you received the email. Log in to your new Google Account. Use the email address and password that you selected during sign-up. You now have access to all the Google features. Explore your new Google account features, including email, groups and the personalized homepages. TIP : If ever you need to get google homepage back from other search providers try to take over your search engine Create the menu tab on your homepage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help Click on the tools at the bottom of the drop down list will be internet options or Click start control panel internet options you will see a home page box To Create Page Tabs type each adress on its own line (type in google.com) or your preferred home page and browser below that will be change search defaults click on settings you will see all search Providers Toolbar extensions and Accelerators you have have if dont need any of them you can disable or remove them

Hope this helps.

mary,

I will show you how to change your start page in several browsers since I'm not sure which browser you're currently on. I hope this helps!

How To Set Your Browser Start Page in IE
  1. Click on your Internet Explorer icon; you'll find this in your Start menu, or the toolbar at the bottom of your desktop window.
  2. Type in "Google" to IE's search box at the top of the browser window (this is just an example, you can use any website that you want).
  3. Arrive at Google search engine home page.
  4. Go to toolbar at the top of browser, and click on "Tools", then "Internet Options".
  5. At the top of the pop-up, you'll see a "Home Page" box. The address of the site that you are currently at (http://www.google.com) is there. Press the "Use Current" button to specify this page as your home page.

How to Set Your Browser Start Page in Firefox
  1. Click on the Firefox icon to start up your browser.
  2. Navigate to the site that you'd like as your Home page.
  3. At the top of your browser window, you'll see the Firefox tool bar (this includes the words "File", "Edit", etc.). Click on Tools, then Options.
  4. The popup window will open up with the default option of General. At the top of the window, you'll see "Home Page Locations." If you're satisfied with the page you're currently at and would like to set it as your Home Page, click on "Use Current Page."
Take care and good luck!

When I try to use google as a search engine it says internet explorer cannot display the page. My home page is MSN. Laptop is Packard Bell. Other search engines are working. The google one has been a bit...


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

Keyboards wont work


Try hitting the Tab key from the web page address. If you can type then, it sounds like you've got a mouse pointer problem. Also try changing your search engine. Left click on the Yahoo symbol, then "Manage Search Engines" and select a different search program (Google, Amazon, e-bay, etc).

Since you can type, it's not a keyboard problem.

You may also want to try dragging your browser to a different part of your screen and trying to type with the window in a different part of the display. It's unlikely, but you may have a bad touchpad that doesn't recognize the upper right corner, so moving it to a different part of the display may isolate that problem, remote though it is.

Help Please.


Is it so dim that the screen cannot be read with shining a flashlight into it? if so this is a hardware failure not a brightness setting. let me know if it is.

If it is just somewhat dim but readable, there is probably a hotkey. Gateway laptops are all different.

Google search for your particular model and specifications. you will get the gateway support page for your notebook.

for example if you have an mx6550 enter this at google.com
