When I start up internet explorer the following link is my defaut and I have not been able to change it.
This link is not found and I want to change it to yahoo.com, as my stat-up
I have change my Internet Properties, General home page to yahoo.com but it keeps changing back to
I have an acer PC and I don't want to start internet explorer with a site that doesn't work.
1.Open you browser to your favorite Yahoo page
2. Click on start
3. Click on run
4. Type regedit (this will open the registry editor)
5. Press ctrl+f
6. In that search window type exactly (no error please) : http:/en.us.acer.yahoo.com/
7. Press okay
8. Once the search has stopped, ensure that you read: http:/en.us.acer.yahoo.com/
9. Press Delete and confirm your choice
10. Close the registry editor
11, Return to your browser
12. Click on tool then on Internet options
13. Click on current page
14. Click on apply.
There it is done
Let me know how if it worked and I am pretty sure it will.
You must therefore make your favorite page your default page.
Please, once your are on your favorite page, click on Tools then on Internet options then on the first button on the left of default page (actual page) it will show yahoo.com, then on default page; after which at the bottom of the window, click on apply. Works like a charm.
I tried it all again without luck. The good news is you have upgraded me from PFK to JFK which is great. Other than I was shot and killed may years ago. Still the name JFK is worth more than PFK so I'm feeling good.
From chicken to president is quite a promotion indeed! However, by respect, if your real initials, I would prefer referring to you as PFK.
The reasons why I suggested to you to upgrade to IE8 is that you may receive better security support from Microsoft when you do your regular Windows updates. The second is that the installation may repair you Yahoo homepage default settings.
Finally, if the upgrade does not repair it, I would suggest to you that you sent me the link to your Yahoo Homepage I will try to edit the registry.
Being in Canada, I do not have access to Yahoo USA or anywhere else in the World.
I have the same problem; but I fixed it by going to run and typing regedit and clicking the OK button to get into my registry. Go to the tools link up top and left click onto Edit, then a small menu appears. Now left click Find, and type or paste in the URL address you already have as you said is. http://en.us.acer.yahoo.com I prefer to copy and paste the URL Address in so I don't make an error typing it in. Now click the Find Next button. The first file that comes up will say Search Page. Right click on the Search Page file icon that will be highlighted to the right, then left click Modify then change the URL Address in the box that appears to the homepage URL Address you want your homepage to be, then click the OK button. Now go back to the toolbar by doing the same thing. Go up top and left click edit once again and left click find and enter the URL Address again into the white bar that says Find What: and then click the Find Next button. Now you'll see a file saying Start Page, right click on that and click on Modify again and change the URL to the homepage you want, Click OK. That worked for me. I still have to do that procedure when I want to change my homepage to something else because it's blanked out where I can't change it in my Internet Properties. I would have to crash my computer to get it working again and it's not worth the hassle.
You can also download an Internet Explorer Error Repair Tool and use it to solve the problem that you are actually having. You will just have to carry out a scan with it and click on repair for getting free of the specific trouble.
