For Internet Explorer, type www.google.com in the address bar. Then when the Google home page is displayed, click Tools then Internet Options. On the General display click "Use Current" for homepage. Other browsers have similar tools for setting the homepage. If you cannot get to Google.com, it may be related to the malware issue you posted earlier.

I did what you said do and still msn comes up as my homepage. I think it has to do with Microsoft.

Have you tried a different browser or do you have to use Internet explorer for work? I use firefox 95% of the time. 5% is when sites need to use internet explorer. Firefox is a free open source browser fully compatible with internet explorer avaliable @

that advice is not helpful
the poster isn't asking about usin g a different browser so don't suggest it
he wants to fix what he has. Your post can very easily be interpreted as spam.

puterjunkie4ever

you have a topic running in malware removal and if you post in taht topic with this problem as well, they will be connected. Your helper there will be able to fix it for you
this is now closed as it is redundant
