Re: how do i get rid of ask.com search engine?

Hi,

 

Can you let me know the following:

 

Which browser are you using?

 

What version of Windows are you using?

 

Is 'Ask' the page that loads when you first open your browser?

 

Regards,

Re: how do i get rid of ask.com search engine?

I uninstalled pac man by restoreing my computer to a previous date.  Pac Man is gone but home.sweetim.com tool bar is still taking over my Chrome homepage, which I perfer to sweethome.  How do I uninstal Sweethome toolbar?  I can not find it in programs to select and uninstall.

I want INternet Exployer and Google Chrome to be my main two search engines along with Bing. Anyone foigure out how to fins and change these with ease? I am having so many problems with this Windows program.
