Angry How to get rid of Incredimail mystart?
I have 3 different browsers each had a different first page. One day after I click to upgrade my Incredimail account when prompted (what a mistake!!!) all my browsers' first pages became Incredimail-start. I was so upset that I uninstalled the incredimail thinking the first pages would go back to the way they were. However that did not happen. Now I am stuck with indredimail start. Can any one give me an instruction on how to get rid of that? Thanks.

Are you saying that Incredimail is the home page on all of your browsers?

Which browser are you interested in using?
If it is Firefox, Then go to the site you would like to use as your Home page (say like Google). Then, on the tool bar, choose Tools, Options, then click on the tab for general. In the middle shows your homepage. Click on Use Current, and it should make Google (or whatever site you choose) as your home page. You can do the similar activity with Internet Explorer.

Incredimail problem solved
Thank you drabdr. Your recommendation is wonderful. I would have followed it if I had not solved the problem already. I am very happy that you are so quick in giving your help. Persistently I uninstalled all elements of Incredimail last night and wrote them about my frustration and ire. I criticized their aggressiveness and invasiveness. As for riding it from my browsers' first pages, I went to TOOL, OPTION, and changed my home page choice to the one I had before.

Just so you know........when you upgrade Incredimail, you can choose to take the checkmark OUT of the box for the mystart extra stuff. Just do that, and there is no Mystart junk. Incredimail does give you that option, you just have to pay attention to the prompts.
