For Online Computer Support, Ask a Computer Technician
Hi. I am Rick and I will be your Computer Expert. I will do my best to assist you with your question.
Have you looked to see if it got set as your home page in internet explorer options
OK it is probably either 8 or 9. Look for tools and then go to internet options. Under the general tab you will see home page. If the site you want to be the home page is not there highlight what is and type in the site you want. Then click OK.
Leet me know if that corrects it. We have some other options but I wanted to start with this one.
Can I do this while online to you?
I have been talking about the opening page of IE. I want it to be without the aforementioned link. I already have Broadband Sky and have kept my AOL address.
So when you say type in the site you want, what should I type in?
You can do this while on line.
The home page is the one that IE will have when you open IE or click the home button. What would you like to have.
I will follow your instructions to see what happens. If I lose connection I will return to your website.
I opened IE and in General options deleted http:/start.iplay.com/?o=shp.
But when I opened IE the link was still there.
I again deleted this link and set Default, which is http://hp-consumer.aol.co.uk/?cid=desktop. Now when I click on it went to the AOL home page.
I am still worried that the unsafe link is still there.
I want the default to be the IE home page. Please help.
I want the default page to be IE.
I should hve mentioned that the default setting is:
This perhaps explains why this default takes one to the AOL home page. I was on AOl only when I bought the computer.
Can you tell me what to type in the General options for the default to go to IE?
Thank you for clarifying that IE does not have a home page. I thought it did because when I clicked on Internet Explorer on the box listing for various sites that appears when you drag the arrow upwards from the IE icon on the bottom bar, it went to a page for only searching for websites but not to AOL or Sky.
I have checked that I can get OK to the AOL and Sky home pages.
Can you confirm that the dodgy link is no longer operative? I understand that you said this.
