Posted

I've removed all the search engines except of google. Now 1)yahoo still appears sometimes 2)yahoo always appears when I input in the address line "frog.fan65" without quotes. I know that this request may be incorrect but WTF? where is google? why does it still shows yahoo even if it "was completely removed"
