search engine problems

Specs: Windows Vista
When trying to access Yahoo/Mozilla, frequently I cannot connect(get online). I am not accomplished in computer tech, but did find an answer that told me to make certain my default engine was Yahoo. I did this...of course, I cannot remember how I did it! For a while, this worked but now I'm back to deleting in Tools my search history which sometimes works but less often now. I would appreciate an easy-to-understand solution.

If you don't want stacks of junk email then edit out your email address immediately, You should never put it in open text on the internet.

Are you using Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox for browsing? You can have more than one installed browser.

If you like Mozilla then just install it by clicking on the link below. Be sure to read all the screens and adjsut the checked selections as desired.

Once you have Firefox installed click on Tools> options> general. The options to show whatever you want are on that screen.

You can start up in IE and still install Mozilla Firefox from there.

- Scan your computer by using antivirus/anti-malware program with latest signature, afraid it's due to virus/worm infection.

- You could also try to use other web browsers (Mozilla Firefox, Opera, google chrome, etc), maybe it's web browser problem.

- Feel free to configure following free DNS servers provided by Google on your computer, see whether it helps.

8.8.8.8
8.8.4.4

Hope this helps.
