    How to change my home page back.


    Hi All, I have been using Windows 10 for a few weeks now and have chosen Google as my home page. This morning I got a message from Norton (my security software) telling me to upgrade for free to Norton Safe. I did this and now it has made Norton Safe my home page. Try as I might I cannot revert back to using Google as my home page! I've followed all the instructions carefully and having made the change I've then rebooted but STILL the Norton Safe comes back as my home page! Does anyone else have this problem? Does anyone know how I can revert back to Google home page.

    :)

  2. Why is my screen split in two horizontally with task stuff across the top?

    when opening to the internet on my desktop the screen is split in two horizontally with task stuff I don't want. How can I change it back to full scree? Also I have been trying to change my home page but it keeps going back to msn home page.

    What Browser are you using? Or do you mean Windows 10 Background?

  5. Just go into options in firefox and change it back to Google. Delete Norton's URL If this is what you have tried I would go back to your previous version of Norton. There may be an option in Norton to not have it as your home page..

    No, it just doesn't allow me to change it back. I've done precisely as you have kindly suggested but without success. Are you able to suggest how I change back to the previous version of Norton? Kind regards.

  7. Do you still have the Norton.EXE file from your prior version or an image of Windows 10 that you can use to restore from prior to this upgrade?

    Just to be sure, on this screen in FF, click Restore to Default.

  10. He has already tried that TC. In Firefox Extensions or Plugings there has to be something from Norton. Just look at your extensions/Plugins and disable anything that is Norton.

    I put the pics there because he said it would not let him change it. If you don't do the Reset to Default first, you can't type in that box. That was the reason for the post.

    There's something quite strange going on here: Once again I have gone through all the steps kindly suggested by both Josey Wales and f14tomcat but still it reverts the the Norton Safe home page. Each time I go through the procedure I don't feel like I've actually completed the change. I keep looking for something like 'APPLY' to click but there's nothing there. Am I missing something perhaps?

    How to change my home page back.

    I don't think you are. I just did those steps on mine. Changed from Google to Bing, click Home button and it went to Bing. Changed it back to Google, click Home and it went to Google. Norton must have something jammed in there like a fishhook. I don't do Norton, so you're back to Josey's suggestions.

    Do you think it might be an idea if I speak to someone at Norton on their 'live chat' facility?

    Hey Feathers,
    Check firefox addons for safe search and disable it, then you should be able to set your home page.
