How Do I Get Rid Of Google?

Dear Computer Lady,

Every time I turn on my computer Google loads up. When I change to another web site
Google loads again.

How do I get rid of Google, it slows things down.

Many thanks for answering my questions in the past.


Dear John,

What you are describing is not normal behavior for a web browser, so we will have to do a little investigating to figure out what is triggering the behavior.

My first question would be what web browser are you using? It could be Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox or Edge.

Whatever the browser, you will need to go into the settings and look at the add-ons, plugins or extensions that are installed. Remove any that look like they might be causing the problem.

If that doesn’t help, use your security software to run a full malware scan. It is possible you have some advertising software installed.

If that doesn’t solve the problem, you will probably need to bring it into your local computer repair shop to have them troubleshoot and fix the problem.
