Which search engine is best to use? Goggle has been my favorite but seem to be getting error message from it now when i sign on. Says program on your computer has corrupted my default search provider, it will be reset to your default provider. Which my default provider was Google. So it changes it to Bing? Not sure what program is causing trouble?

Are you using Internet Explorer? There's a thread on how to fix that here. There's too much to just repeat here, so there's the link.

Well link is very confusing, but tried several things in the registry i have seen on there. But still having same problem. Should i remove IE8 and reload it. Or am i missing something in link?

It must have took a couple of restarts for it to take effect, it hasn't given me message last couple of times.

THank you

Honestly, you should just install a browser that doesn't get hijacked by MS.

I recommend installing either Firefox or Google Chrome

There is no need to uninstall Explorer .. you can have more than one browser installed at once.

More specifically, DON'T uninstall IE. Some apps notably Steam will use IE as its internal browsing.

When you install a browser, it will usually take over many browser related tasks such as opening a shortcut, etc...

As for your problem, try disabling all the add-ons.
