    "Could live without change of homepage, stupid toolbar"

    September 26, 2012  |   By millerprm


    The version I used was free.


    Automatically changes your Windows homepage to an Ad Aware homepage if you don't want that option. As for the Blekko search engine, who wants it?


    You get what you pay for.

    It should install without that toolbar and search change by default.

    Dear millerprm,

    I am sorry you encountered these issues, when installing you can simply uncheck the check box for the Blekko homepage and also uncheck for the toolbar.

    Kind regards,
