Search being rerouted to Gateway/Google search engine home screen

\015 Whenever I'm in a sight (signed into msn for example) & I'm trying to search for something (careerbuilder specific job postings) it keeps popping back to the Gateway/google search engine screen (which I never use) - I've try spy searches, deleting history etc... nothing stops this from happening so far! help!?!?!\015

Answers :

Go to add/remove programs and remove anything that reads google. It will probably read something like google tool bar or search. If you don't use it you won't miss it, and removing it will stop it from overriding the search engine you do use. If you need any more help let me know.
