    I cant believe that your name is blue and you are shock and do not know how to correct the issue of a search engine change on your browser.

    This.

    Also, on Firefox it's even easier... just click the search engine icon next to your search bar and select a different one. Seriously. :rolleyes:

    $100 bucks and your name is blue. There is absolutely no correlation between being blue and how much computer knowledge you have.

    I am guessing you might have installed some kind of toolbar. Try disabling all the plugins, also make sure to set your default search engine as Google.

    Most probably you installed something that changed the deafult search. Or Sometimes Update also do this.
