Re: Google high-jacking browser
Thanks for reading my post and replying.
1. In answer to the first reply, I always save website shortcuts into my
favorites directly from the sites home pages and never from a search link.
2. I use IE 7 and am running Windows Vista Home Premium. I uninstalled the
Google tool bar from my system when I first started having problems and was
unable to get my ATT home page back for some reason. Removing it didn't
entirely solve the problem but, it did slow it down a lot. Apparently Google
came with my system as I don't recall downloading it directly. I tried to
find a Google tech support site but, google has no such thing that I can
locate anyway. Is there a way to get rid of Google from my computer entirely
and use Yahoo or other search engines instead?
Thanks again, (sorry to be a pest)
