I have just spent hours resolving a search engine problem!
A couple of weeks ago my old laptop running XP...I know :-) finally said "enough"! I had kept an external hard drive with all the files/snaps/e-mail contacts etc.I bought a nice s/h Acer with new hard drive..this one and then activated the latest W7 64 bit prof version,all good.Then as it came with IE and MSN thought I would go back to Firefox as it defaulted to Bing.I had managed to get all my old Outlook Express contacts into Live Mail via BT Yahoo.I run Mcafee with no issues.SO....I uploaded Firefox and low and behold,every time I entered a search it defaulted to Yahoo not Google :evil: :evil: This has taken hours to resolve,eventually via the Firefox help page I have uploaded an encrypted Firefox AddOn...IT ALL WORKS :D :D :D So has anyone else had such an issue.I also got rid of a very suspicious Mcafee Webadviser should read SiteAdvisor.So all being well...back to normal :D :D
