The Ask search page

The Ask search page

One day your web browser suddenly opens to an Ask.com search page instead of your favorite homepage. What happened? You probably updated Java but didn’t opt out of changing your search engine and homepage to Ask.com. There is a screen just before you click the last “Next” button that has two little check boxes. You have to click in each box to deselect them.

Okay, so now you know how to prevent it next time, what do you do this time to get your homepage back to where you like it? Changing the homepage depends upon which browser you use.

In Microsoft Internet Explorer:
Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Internet Explorer icon on the taskbar.
Click the Tools button, and then click Internet options.
On the General tab, under Home page, enter the URL of the site you want to set as a home page.
Click Apply, and then tap or click OK.
