how can I get rid of funmodes search?

Even though I have set google to be my home page using tools/options/general, it resets to funmodes search. How can I stop it?

Make sure no Add-ons are resetting your settings.

Sometimes Toolbars can take over the homepage.

  • Safe Mode
    • Run Safe Mode to disable all Toolbars/Add-ons
    • Set your preferred Homepage, Then restart in safemode again to see if your preferred homepage saves

Also Refer to this Article for more information:

Thanks. I also ran Microsoft's Safety Scanner, at www.microsoft.com/security/scanner/ - I ran it in deep scan and it found 5 items of malware including a Trojan Horse that captured the tool bar, and it got rid of them.
