How Do You Stop Toolbars From Hijacking Your Homepage?
How do you stop browser toolbars from hijacking your homepage? Some browser toolbars will hijack your homepage and change it to their site and even sometimes add a new search engine to your list of search engines. Besides removing the toolbar is there a way of stopping this?
Most toolbars install themselves during the installation of other applications, or when accessing certain websites. So the most important thing to have in mind is to read carefully the instructions and steps of every application you install to make sure you install only the desired components and nothing else. Same with websites that ask you to click some options.
If the toolbars are already in the system, you can go to Control Panel - Programs and Features to see if Windows allows you to uninstall them. There are other third-party programs that help you eradicate them as well like HijackThis.
When u r installing some kind of software, there is always an option like "install toolbar and make blah-blah as my homepage", just uncheck that. most of the times, we keep on pressng next button and wait for software to install
