Search Engine when using WebAdvisor

Jump to solution

This is more a comment than a question...

I personally hate Yahoo! Search Engine. I never find what I want with this and it's full of sponsored sites unrelated to your search. I prefer Google by far. Because the McAfee WebAvisor forces me to use Yahoo! Search Engine and continuously switches my web preferences to this search engine, without my consent, I have disable the WebAdvisor. McAfee, I think you should consider offer options/respect your consumers' preferences on Internet if you want them to use your tools...

It's my two cents for today ;)

This article is completely unhelpful in dealing with this issue.

I never see the prompt and yet my search engine keeps changing. 

To be completely clear, how can I stop WebAdvisor from redirecting the default search engine to Yahoo Secure Search going forward?  If it involves removing WebAdvisor or McAfee entirely, I am happy to do that, as the current hijacking behavior is simply unacceptable.

At one point in time, email was the only form of communication. Today, the world is much more connected and at-home devices like smart phones can allow for person-to-person interaction and instant messaging services. However, old email providers such as Hotmail are still around today - how do you get out of your old Hotmail account? https://emailloggin.com/
