PUT GOOGLE BACK AS MY HOME PAGE NOW


Caps lock is the same as shouting. And if you want folks to help you, you don't shout at them. After all, it is probably your fault that the homepage changed. Many downloads and updates hide little checkoff boxes to add things like toolbars and homepage changes. You must be diligent and notice these before just clicking thru them. All you need to do to restore your homepage to Google is to open your browser, type "Google.com" into the URL line and press Enter. When Google comes up, at the top of the browser click on the TOOLS menu option, then OPTIONS, and there you will see what the homepage was changed to, but also you will have a click option to use the current page (Google). Once you do that, Google will be back to being your homepage.

Getting ask homepage messed up my homepage get out of ask


Assuming you are using Internet explorer do this

Got to Tools (ALT+T) in browser
Pick Internet Options in Menu
In the General Tab you will see Box marked "Home Page"
Delete what is in there and insert http://www.google.com
Press Apply Button at the bottom of the Window.
Then Press OK to get back to Browser.
Close Browser and your new home page will be Google.com
If you cannot get it changed this way, then you have a virus which is re-installing ask.com as a home page.
Install
SUPERAntiSpyware Remove Malware Remove Spyware AntiMalware AntiSpyware...
to get rid of it. Then change the home page again.

I cant find my google homepage


Your hijackers have changed the page. I would remove the hijackers, rootkits etc before setting the home page again. First go to IE and uncheck all addons. Then never use IE again. Use firefox or opera or safari or chrome etc. Download one of them as your final use of IE. Then go to options and type in the home page of your choice. I prefer google or even bing for home page, it is used the most.
Finally run spynomore (free to try, pay to have it remove) to see what is on your system that your antivirus missed. Likely all of your trojan apps missed them too. I use the detailed list to remove the trojans manually in windows hidden files and in the registry.

I WANT GOOGLE FOR MY HOME PAGE ONLY


Many times, downloading a toolbar will automatically set your homepage whether you wanted it to or not. First, I would check to see if you have any toolbars installed (I remove all of them).

Click on Start > Control Panel > Programs and Features

If present, right-click on the Ask Toolbar and select Uninstall.

Next, return to Control Panel and open Internet Options. Under the Homepage box, enter http://google.com/ and click on the Apply button. This should solve your problem.

If the homepage continues to revert back to the other pages, you more than likely have a running application causing the browser to automatically select the scripted page. I would then recommend downloading Google Chrome or Firefox to use as a web browser. If you already use Google Chrome and the problem is happening, download again to revert the settings back to default.

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
