I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Ok.  So.... after updating the image as of yesterday, this issue has disappeared.  Same image.  Haven't done anything differently.

I can actually use my base image, not run updates and replicate the error, but updates between the last time I ran updates (couldn't have been more than two weeks ago) and yesterday, the issue has disappeared. 


Thank you MS!

You know where it says www.techspot.com. Yes it has taken it over. There is no bing addon, extension or remove program. I followed a few guides I found googling and they only work until I restart FF. My old search engine was Google in the address bar.
 

A:Bing has taken over as my default search address bar in Firefox, search provider

In the address bar where it says your search program. Drop down the menu there. You should be able to switch it back to Google

Using Windows XP Pro SP3. When I click Start Search, WindowsSearch comes up and I have to click use Search Companion at the bottom of the window. I want to have Seach Companion come up when I click Search without having to open the 2nd window. Many computers I work with come up with Search Companion as the default. I have not been able to locate the file that opens Search Companion.

Hi,
I like to be able to search for a file quickly and efficiently, preferrably without involving third-party apps.

So when I press the Win key, I like that I can type into the search box directly, but it's annoying that the search scope is pre-set to "everywhere", as for some reason that's beyond me, I get file search results only on the first 2 lines. To get a longer file list, I have to manually change the scope to "files".

Is there a way to set the search scope by default to "files"?

Thanks
Steve

Hi experts I got default-search net when downloading from a large reputable download site which I thought was a safe bet Wrong My antivirus picked up about problems the laptop was going mad with its AVG dings advising of a detection I got AVG to clean up those problems However the laptop was running very slowly so I investigated and deleted the program that I had just installed Using Iorbit uninstaller I deleted the program but just at the end of the uninstall process and before the Iorbit could run its advanced uninstall to make sure that no pieces of the install were remaining in the registry the program froze and that process was not completed I then noticed that default-search net was had become my default search engine So I then ran Firefox from Removing engines Default-search.net search MalwareBytes This removed the problem but on reboot D-F net was back again Then I went into my Firefox profile and found an entry for D-S net and deleted the line All was perfect until a reboot Removing Default-search.net from search engines Firefox I then installed Spybot but that has not found D-S net What file is re-activating D-S net in my Firefox browserand how do I remove it Long before this I de-activated MS Internet Explorer as I do not use it - unfortunately you can't delete it as it is part of the Windows system Many thanks in advance Notes Lenovo G laptop Windows Home Editon AVG antivirus installed Maywarebytes installed Spyboy search and destroy installed after the problem

Hello nldstorm I would like to welcome you to the Malware Removal section of the forum.Around here they call me Gringo and I will be glad to help you with your malware problems.Very Important --> Please read this post completely, I have spent my time to put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier, faster and smoother for both of us!Please do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.Please read every post completely before doing anything.Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE: At the top of your post, click on the "Follow This Topic" Button, make sure that the "Receive notification" box is checked and that it is set to "Instantly" - This will send you an e-mail as soon as I reply to your topic, allowing us to resolve the issue faster.NOTE: Backup any files that cannot be replaced. Removing malware can be unpredictable and this step can save a lot of heartaches if things don't go as planed. You can put them on a CD/DVD, external drive or a pen drive, anywhere except on the computer.NOTE: It is good practice to copy and paste the instructions into notepad and print them in case it is necessary for you to go offline during the cleanup process. To open notepad, navigate to Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > Notepad. Please remember to copy the entire post so you do not miss any instructions.I would like you to run this program for me.Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.Note: You need to run the version compatibale with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.Press Scan button.It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply.Gringo

Have just decided to give IE7 Beta 3 a tryout...so far so good, except for one minor annoyance.

I have made Google my default search provider but every time I visit Google after clearing my cache, I get that annoying popup in the top right of the page saying:

"Make Google your search engine in Internet Explorer"

I remember with Beta 2, there was a fix for this but I have tried that and I still get the box popping up after clearing my cache...I have even removed all other search providers but it hasn't made a difference.

Does anyone know how to fix this please?

A:Default Search????

A driver maybe malfunctioning because some files have become corrupted. See if the
following will help.

1. Double-click My Computer from your desktop, then right-click the drive you want to check.

2. Click Properties, then click Tools.

3. Under Error-Checking click Check Now.

4. Select the check disk options you want to use(I would select Automatically fix file system errors), then click Start.

XP is kinda' picky when it comes to drivers so try and use signed drivers. You can use a tool within XP that will verify all of your unsigned drivers, to do this

1. Click Start>Run, type sigverif click OK. The File Signature Verification will open.

2. Click Advanced to open the Advanced File Signature Verification Settings.

3. Click Look for Files that are not digitally signed.

4. In the Look in box type, C:\WINDOWS then click OK.

5. Click Start to begin the verification process.

When the process is complete you may/may not see a list of programs with unsigned driver files.

Type about:config in Firefox location bar and press Enter
Type keyword in Filter textbox
Double-click on "keyword.URL" and change the value to:

http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&sourceid=navclient&gfns=1&q=

and if that doesnt work try:

http://www.google.com/search?btnI=I'm+Feeling+Lucky&q=

if you want to just go to the first page returned for the search

edit- if you type "browser.search" into the filter you will also find some settings that may need to be changed like "browser.search.defaultenginename" , "browser.search.defaulturl"

When I open IE 9, I get a corruption message - see attached SS. When I try to make Google the default, it's no go. Any ideas?

A:Default Search Provider

A bit confusing. Your OS is listed as XP which is not compatible with IE9. Do you have a different OS? If so report here and in the meantime, disable the mentioned toolbar. The redirect is sending you to the wrong place. It's not a screen saver issue.

Hello all.

I have been wondering for a day or so why I couldn't search anything using the upper right hand search bar in IE8 in Windows 7. I was just about to start a thread to see if anyone else is having a similar problem; when on a hunch I switched back to MS Live Search as default and low and behold it now works; imagine that.

I guess MS doesn't want anyone to use another search provider as default or maybe it's an incompatibility between IE8/W7 and IE7Pro.

A:IE7Pro Search As Default

Maybe because it's a pre-beta. In the Beta it will work as Windows has been down the anti-competion road, to it's cost.

I'm sure those who use IE7 are aware of the option to choose a default search engine such as Goolge, Yahoo, etc. which is then displayed on the top toolbar. I have tried to eliminate this feature and remove the toolbar window but I do not see that option. Does anyone know if this is possible? if so, how?

Thank you

See here: (Applies to XP pro)Remove Search Bar IE7Using For other OS versions at the above link:Copy & paste the code into notepad. Choose File > Save as. Name it something like IE7.reg (include the.reg to save as a reg file). Save to your desktop, double click on the reg file to accept the merge.Note: Because what works on my computer without any problems may or may not work on your computer without problems, & because you will be editing the registry (if you use that method), make sure you create a System Restore point, before making the change.

Hi

Last year, when searching for the above title using google.co.uk, I used to get a result which pointed me to a thread on this forum and, several posts down, was a link to a page which had a simple shortcut which set google.co.uk as my default search provider in ie11.

Now I can't find it. Does anyone know where that post or even the location of the link is?

It's almost as if it's been removed or blocked by MS.

I can't stand Bing as I never get a sensible response even on simple MS matters.

A:Set Google.co.uk as default search

Open Internet Explorer.
In the top right corner of the search box, click the down arrow.
Click Add.
Select Google.
Click Add to Internet Explorer.

Click Add.

Nicole,
 
Have you run a virus/malware scan? It appears that malware may be the culprit. I use malware bytes for a malware scanner. Please let me know if that resolves your issue. FYI if that fails you may need to open a thread under the malware section of these forums.

On the search function is it possible for the default search to be for files? It seems apps is the standard default but if I could change this default to files, it would be great.

Is this possible?

I think the Metro IE and the desktop have to be set separately. Try adding Yahoo to one and Google to the other. See if it changes back and forth when you run IE from the Start Screen or from the TaskBar.

It's under the name: Default tab

  When I try uninstalling it, this message pops up: "Please close Chrome before uninstalling Default Tab"
 
 Also, when I open up a new tab off of Google now, a fake imitation Google page opens up in its place. All of my bookmarks are still their though.
 
The day I think this got onto my computer, I got a notification from my McAfee antivirus saying a Trojan Horse had been detected and blocked.

Hi,

I recently made the mistake of installing a program (bitTorrent) and did not read the screens thoroughly enough before clicking 'next'. The program has f%!#ed up my browser (I use IE version 6) so that now when i try to type in addresses without 'www' it doesn't go to them, instead it goes to some noname search service called Ask.com. I frequently type in https addresses for school servers right in the address bar and it used to just go right to them, now i have to type in the 'https://' every time. I removed the toolbar in Add/Remove programs but it still does it. I've looked everywhere in the internet options for the association that causes this but can't find anything. Does anyone know which registry key i can manipulate to get rid of this problem and go back to how it was before?

I would like to change my Win 7 ULT box so that when I enter text into the "Search programs and files" box, the system will use my favorite 3rd party search app. I use UltraSearch. Is that possible?

I've read most of the posts about removing the search text box. That's not what I want to do. I like having the search box right there after I click on the 'Start/Globe'. I just want to use a different search engine.

Any ideas?

At one point I was hijacked. I have done everything listed to clean my system. I have adaware, spybot, and hijackthis. I also ran AVG. My search pane in IE 6.0 is not showing the right options to search. It only shows one little box labeled MSN, when I try to change the options I rather get no options to choose from or just two. I have also tried the repair in Add/Remove Programs for IE.

When I click on the search button I am used to the little list you get on the left side where u can choose what you are searching for, like address, word, web page containing etc. That is no longer there. I had originally posted this in the hijack forum, but was redirected here. I hope someone can help me and I thank you.

Has anybody else had there default search engine hijacked by microsoft itself. I used to have my default address bar searches go through google. However since installing sp2 it forces me through msn. I use to be able to change this by going into the search button and clicking customise preferences. Now that appears to be gone and the only thing I can change is the default msn search preferences not the default search engine. Has anybody else had this problem and if so do you know how to change it.

I installed Windows Live Essentials a couple of weeks ago.
It set my default search to Windows Live search. I wanted to reset the default to my usual Google but this program had hijacked my browser and would not allow me select any other search engine as the default.
Does anyone know how to stop it doing this?

I ended up uninstalling it.

A:can't select any other search engine as the default

yep its fairly straight-forward. in the searchbar you should see the down arrow. Click on that and select manage search providers. In the box that comes up you then click on your provider of choice and click the set as default button.

Hello WiccanWolf I would like to welcome you to the Malware Removal section of the forum.Around here they call me Gringo and I will be glad to help you with your malware problems.Very Important --> Please read this post completely, I have spent my time to put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier, faster and smoother for both of us!Please do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.Please read every post completely before doing anything.Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE: At the top of your post, click on the "Follow This Topic" Button, make sure that the "Receive notification" box is checked and that it is set to "Instantly" - This will send you an e-mail as soon as I reply to your topic, allowing us to resolve the issue faster.NOTE: Backup any files that cannot be replaced. Removing malware can be unpredictable and this step can save a lot of heartaches if things don't go as planed. You can put them on a CD/DVD, external drive or a pen drive, anywhere except on the computer.NOTE: It is good practice to copy and paste the instructions into notepad and print them in case it is necessary for you to go offline during the cleanup process. To open notepad, navigate to Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > Notepad. Please remember to copy the entire post so you do not miss any instructions.These are the programs I would like you to run next, if you have any problems with one of these just skip it and move on to the next one.-AdwCleaner-Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop.Close all open programs and internet browsers.Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.Click on Scan.After the scan is complete click on "Clean"Confirm each time with Ok.Your computer will be rebooted automatically.

If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".The tool will open and start scanning your system.Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.When they are complete let me have the two reports and let me know how things are running.Gringo

Using IE8. Every time I click on the icon to open, I get a popup that says that a program on my computer has suggested a new default search provider for Internet Explorer. The choices are change to Google (indicating this is a new setting suggested by the program) or keep using Bing (saying this is my current setting). No matter what choice I make, as soon as I click on it, IE8 closes.

I'm currently using my laptop as I don't know how to access the internet any other way except through IE8 (mozilla is not downloaded).

I'm desperate for help since I use my PC for work. I'm guessing perhaps there is a virus causing the problem so don't want to spread a virus through work.

I am having problems with my firefox default search engine. Everytime I switch it to google, it reverts back to Bing if I restart my computer or my browser.

I have been able to fix the problem temporarily by following the steps below, however after a restart it reverts:

Step1: Type "about:config" into the url address bar.

Step2: Type "keyword.url"

Step3: Change the current setting (http://search.conduit.com/ResultsExt.aspx?ctid=CT2504091&SearchSource=2&q=) to google (http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=utf-8&q=)

This works great until I restart, and then it goes back to search.conduit.com I have the latest version of firefox 14.1 and windows 7. Is there another place I need to change this setting?

Hello,

They call me TwinHeadedEagle around here, and I'll be working with you.

Before we start please read and note the following:

At the top of your post, please click on the "Watch thread" button and make sure to check Watch this thread...and receive email notifications. This will send an email to you as soon as I reply to your topic, allowing me to solve your problem faster.
Please do not install any new software during the cleaning process other than the tools I provide for you. This can hinder the cleaning process. Please do not perform System Restore or any other restore.
Instructions I give to you are very simple and made for complete beginner to follow. That's why you need to read through my instructions carefully and completely before executing them.
Please do not run any tools other than the ones I ask you to, when I ask you to. Some of these tools can be very dangerous if used improperly. Also, if you use a tool that I have not requested you use, it can cause false positives, thereby delaying the complete cleaning of your machine.

All tools we use here are completely clean and do not contain any malware. If your antivirus detects them as malicious, please disable your antivirus and then continue.
If during the process you run across anything that is not in my instructions, please stop and ask. If any tool is running too much time (few hours), please stop and inform me.
I visit forum several times at day, making sure to respond to everyone's topic as fast as possible. But bear in mind that I have private life like everyone and I cannot be here 24/7. So please be patient with me. Also, some infections require less, and some more time to be removed completely, so bear this in mind and be patient.
Please stay with me until the end of all steps and procedures and I declare your system clean. Just because there is a lack of symptoms does not indicate a clean machine. If you solved your problem yourself, set aside two minutes to let me know.

Please attach all report using button below. Doing this, you make it easier for me to analyze and fix your problem.

Do not ask for help for your business PC. Companies are making revenue via computers, so it is good thing to pay someone to repair it.
If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed.

Hi there,my name is Marius and I will assist you with your malware related problems.Before we move on, please read the following points carefully. First, read my instructions completely. If there is anything that you do not understand kindly ask before proceeding. Perform everything in the correct order. Sometimes one step requires the previous one. If you have any problems while following my instructions, Stop there and tell me the exact nature of your problem. Do not run any other scans without instruction or add/remove software unless I tell you to do so. This would change the output of our tools and could be confusing for me. Post all logfiles as a reply rather than as an attachment unless I specifically ask you. If you can not post all logfiles in one reply, feel free to use more posts. If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed. Stay with me. I will give you some advice about prevention after the cleanup process. Absence of symptoms does not always mean the computer is clean. My first language is not english. So please do not use slang or idioms. It could be hard for me to read. Thanks for your understanding.    Scan with FRST in normal modePlease download Farbar's Recovery Scan Tool to your desktop: FRST 32bit or FRST 64bit (If not sure: Start --> Computer (right click) --> properties)Run FRST. Don´t change one of the checkboxes and hit Scan. Logfiles are created on your desktop. Poste the FRST.txt and (after the first scan only!) the Addition.txt.   Scan with Gmer rootkit scannerPlease download Gmer from here by clicking on the "Download EXE" Button.Double click on the randomly named GMER.exe. If asked to allow gmer.sys driver to load, please consent.If it gives you a warning about rootkit activity and asks if you want to run scan...click on NO.In the right panel, you will see several boxes that have been checked. Uncheck the following ...
SectionsIAT/EATShow All ( should be unchecked by default )Leave everything else as it is.Close all other running programs as well as your Browser.Click the Scan button & wait for it to finish.Once done click on the Save.. button, and in the File name area, type in "ark.txt" or it will save as a .log file which cannot be uploaded to your post.Save it where you can easily find it, such as your desktop.Please post the content of the ark.txt here.**Caution**Rootkit scans often produce false positives.

Hey Guys
I need your help

I want to determine by registry/policy, that Google is set as Default. I already saw some questions about this here and there, but i tried these settings as recommended, with no success.

So here is what I've done:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchScopes\{0633EE93-D776-472f-A0FF-E1416B8B2E3A}\


?URL?=?http://www.google.com.au/search?q={searchTerms}&sourceid=ie7&rls=com.microsoft:{language}:{referrer:source}&ie={inputEncoding?}&oe={outputEncoding?}?

?DisplayName?=?Google?

"(Default)"="Google"

I overwrite all of the Default given Bing Properties and I didnt create a new key or deleted one.

Where is my Problem?

I still get Bing as Search Engine.

Cheers

Anyways right now it is set as Charter Communications powered by Yahoo. I want it to be just yahoo. Or google. I dont like the charter one because 3\4 of the page are advertisments and you have to go to the second page to even see your search results. Any help? thank you so much.

The other search bar (green mark) is as it was always, but the main search engine changed. I have an idea , that it might came with km-player or real-player, when I downloaded them. But now how to change it to Google again? I can't find any way.

In that search bar you should see a little triangle. Click it and choose "Manage Search Engines" and make "Google default and then remove or delete Ask...damn thing is both useless and insidious.

Hi,
I have downloaded Google Chrome on my home pc which is running Windows xp professional SP3 and I kept getting numerous warning boxes in the bottom right hand side of my screen saying "an attempt to change your default search setting has been blocked".
It is driving me mad, as everything I try to do to stop it just fails and it keeps returning, sometimes 3 or 4 times at once.
Can somebody please help me get rid of this message once and for all ??
 

A:'an attempt to change your default search setting has been blocked'

that will be your antivirus or anti-spyware program alerting you to the fact that chrome tries to change the default search from MSN to Google

there will be a setting somewhere in your AV to allow the change

what antivirus/antispyware are you using?

or try this

I have had an issue with Windows 8 PC

thats all sorted now
Carried out a restore to when I first set up on Saturday
Updates all now installed
However,

IE has gone back to using BING

So I went to
ADD-IN
Search providers
choose google
then when i click on
"add to internet explorer"
nothing happens

last time (usually ) a popup appears and asks to set as default

nothing pops up

i have disabled pop-ups
reset IE11
gone to windows features and removed
then added back in

at a loss as to what to do next ....

Whenever we go to IE, the above error message shows up, and in the error box is:

A program on your computer has corrupted your default search provider setting for Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer has reset this setting to your original search provider, Bing (www.bing.com). Internet Explorer will now open Search Settings, where you can change this setting or install more search providers.

I click OK and it takes me to the "Manage Search Providers". I've tried different things - adding a different search provider, enable, disable, set as default - nothing changes, I continue to get the same error message the next time I open IE.

The error message says "A program on your computer has corrupted..." What program could that be, and what can I do to correct the situation?

We have Windows XP.

A:Browser default search repeatedly redirected to Yahoo.

Hello yeahyeahyeah I would like to welcome you to the Malware Removal section of the forum.Around here they call me Gringo and I will be glad to help you with your malware problems.Very Important --> Please read this post completely, I have spent my time to put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier, faster and smoother for both of us!Please do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.Please read every post completely before doing anything.Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE: At the top of your post, click on the "Follow This Topic" Button, make sure that the "Receive notification" box is checked and that it is set to "Instantly" - This will send you an e-mail as soon as I reply to your topic, allowing us to resolve the issue faster.NOTE: Backup any files that cannot be replaced. Removing malware can be unpredictable and this step can save a lot of heartaches if things don't go as planed. You can put them on a CD/DVD, external drive or a pen drive, anywhere except on the computer.NOTE: It is good practice to copy and paste the instructions into notepad and print them in case it is necessary for you to go offline during the cleanup process. To open notepad, navigate to Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > Notepad. Please remember to copy the entire post so you do not miss any instructions.These are the programs I would like you to run next, if you have any problems with one of these just skip it and move on to the next one.-AdwCleaner-Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop.Close all open programs and internet browsers.Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.Click on Scan.After the scan is complete click on "Clean"Confirm each time with Ok.Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.Please post the content of that logfile with your next answer.You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.-Junkware-Removal-Tool-Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".The tool will open and start scanning your system.Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.When they are complete let me have the two reports and let me know how things are running.Gringo

Click the "Download" button to the right.
Select your Platform and check the box that says: "I agree to the Java SE Runtime Environment 6 License Agreement.".
Click on Continue.
Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation (jre-6u7-windows-i586-p.exe) and save it to your desktop. Do NOT use the Sun Download Manager..
Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
Go to Start > Control Panel, double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java version.
Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
Then from your desktop double-click on the download to install the newest version.

Ok, for some reason, whenever I type something into the address bar and hit enter (for example "wikipedia"), instead of going to google which will try to guess the domain and then automatically redirecting to wikipedia.com, my searches get redirected to google.co.in. It's very annoying. I went to about:config a million times and reset the keyword.url value to the original

http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-...ient&gfns=1&q=

but whenever I exit out of firefox, this value is reset to

http://www.google.co.in/search?hl=en&q=

Please help

A:firefox keeps automatically changing default search engine

When Firefox exits, if the pref isn't saved it'll revert to the previous setting. For whatever reason, your changes in about:config don't seem to be saving.

Try resetting the pref from the prefs.js file in your profile folder:-

Close Firefox.

Go to your profile folder (windows) Documents and Settings > *Your User Name* > Application Data > Mozilla > Firefox > Profiles > *Your Profile Name* > prefs.js

Open the file with Notepad, look for the pref and change the default url to the one you want. Exit and save the file.

Restart Firefox.

Hopefully, that should do it.

Has there been any update regarding the loss of search engine management that KB2988414 forced on us??? Simply put I cannot manage changing the search engine in WIN7x64 ENT images without them being changed back. I have tried the IEAK, GP, AutoUnattend.xml,
assorted scripts, assorted reg settings all with no success. 
here is another reference and an acknowledgment of the issue:
https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsserver/en-US/a50e93ec-0d63-4ed0-865e-79b62605ff46/kb2988414-and-default-search-provider-via-installins?forum=ieitprocurrentver

A:Lost Default Search Engine Control Due to KB2988414

Hi Optimum,
IEAK IE11-Setup-Branding package works here (Which need Internet Explorer 11 to install first).
After log off and log on again, the default search provider changed to the settings I have configured in the package.
For the full install package, currently I am not able to build the environment to test it.
So for the current situation, if it is considered to be an available method, you may create a Setup-Branding package after the installation of Internet Explorer 11.
Best regards
Michael Shao
