    Whenever I open Internet Explorer, it redirects me to http://search.conduit.com

    I am a windows 7 user and using Windows 7 from last year. I occasionally use internet in my laptop but I remember that everything was absolutely fine when I used Internet last time in my computer but now when I double click on Internet Explorer to open it, it redirects me to http://search.conduit.com. After that, it becomes difficult for me to view the space where you can type the url of website. Do you have any idea about this kind of error? If yes then can you help me in solving this issue?

    It seems that your homepage has been changed.You should use Recommended setting.To fix your issue, Open Internet Explorer.You haven't mentioned the version of your Internet Explorer so I assume that you are using the latest version.Click on "Setting" icon which appears at upper right corner and then choose "Internet Options".You will see a Homepage option where you will see "http://search.conduit.com". Delete this address and type any web address of your choice like-http://google.com. Finally click on "Apply" and then on "Ok". You are done so close it and reopen Internet Explorer again.You will see Google Search now. If the problem still persists then it means that your Computer has been affected by any Adware or Malware.In this case, use any powerful Antivirus to scan and destroy them.

    Hello dear friend .

    Whenever you are redirected to the search.conduit.com while opening the IE explorer

    it is because of the change in the homepage .

    Open the IE Explorer first and at the Top you can find the internet options .

    settings and you can find the URL address , click on the address and delete it completely.

    Re: Whenever I open Internet Explorer, it redirects me to http://search.conduit.com

    it seems your default homepage has been set to search.conduit.com.....Conduit Search or search.conduit.com is categorized as adware program which is designed to distribute the ad-supported.......you can change it by:
    #1.open IExplorer
    #2.for IE10,9,8 lookout for a nut bolt type icon click on it
    #3.under Homepage write down the address of the website you want to make your home page
    or you can leave it blank if you want a blank page......click on apply then ok.......
    YOU CAN AVOID THIS KIND OF PROBLEMS BY INSTALLIN AN ADD-ON SUCHH AS AdBlock Plus .....WELL I RECOMMEND YOU TO USE GOOGLE CHROME OR MOZILLA........

    Re: Whenever I open Internet Explorer, it redirects me to http://search.conduit.com

    Hello Friend,

    Well this is a minor issue. Your default home page has changed so whenever you open Internet explorer it redirects you to conduit.com. To sort out the issue you should Click Start menu of your Windows 7. Then click Control Panel and then go to Network and Internet. Now, click Internet Options from the list and from the Home Page Section type:
    www.google.in and then press apply and OK. Your default home page will be Google. So whenever you open your internel explorer it will open Google India home page as your default home page.

    Bye,
