Yahoo.Genieo.com becomes my default homepage, what should I do to fix this?

Postby woof » 2012-09-13 4:35


Hi there,

A website named Yahoo.Genieo.com becomes my default homepage instead of goole.com. Besides, I receive numerous pop ups and ads through this website. Therefore, I want to know how to remove it from my google chrome or my computer. Any advice is appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Best Regards,

Woof
