Hi All

I browse with Mozilla 1.7.3. In the Edit\Preferences\Internet Search section I have repeatedly chosen Google as my default search engine but it keeps defaulting back to Ask Jeeves. Any ideas?

Thanks

Brendon :)

You could try to run various spyware programs, in case your home page has been hijacked.

Perhaps you could change the details manually in about:config.

To do this type about:config in the location bar.
Filter the results with the term search.
Now change the browser.search.defaultenginename and browser.search.selectedEngine entries to Google. Check out this (http://sal.neoburn.net/imagef1/files/google.png) screenshot if you are unsure. Hopefully this is the same in Mozilla as I use Firefox.
