Typical story...
Friend shows up and loads Yahoo on my computer so they can do...
Anyway, removed the programs, etc. but, when I highlight then right click and scroll down to "search the web", Yahoo search still comes up.
How can I change it back to Google?
I'm running XP home and Firefox.

OK, I'm an idiot.

I'm still lost.

Can someone walk me through it?

At the top of your screen is "File Edit View Favorites TOOLS Help


Under Tools pick Internet Options

A box should pop up and at the top of the General tab should be Homepage

Simply change this to read www.google.com and click OK.

This is a good example of why permissions and a guest user account are good.
