Using Internet explorer as home page and search page.

Hello,

My computer hard drive crashed so I hade to take it to a computer store to capture the data.

They reinstalled the operating system. My system is windows 7 64 bit. IE 11 is installed.

MSN is now my home page. I want IE as my home page.The default search engine is bing. I want IE as my search engine.

When you go to browser ad-ons and attempt to change the default page to IE the button to do so is greyed out.

Who is Microsft to tell me what service I will use as my home page or my search engine. THIS IS MY COMPUTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. I PAID FOR THE SOFTWARE. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I WILL USE THE SOFTWARE AND AD-ONS AS IIIIIIII SEE FIT.

Can someone please tell me how to return MY COMPUTER TO MY CONTROL

Use this tutorial for changing the Home Page.

IE is not a search engine. You must select a search provider such as Bing, Google, etc.
