    Chrome installed some virus on my computer and made it super slow, yes, the virus is associated with Chrome.
    Had to uninstall it. It was a bummer because Chrome was my life.

    I use Firefox as my browser. Do they have a nice home page available?
    I have to go onto the internet and see a tribute to Morehead when I start.

    riiiiight....because Google embeds viruses with their software.

    it was probably something that latched onto Chrome.

    I'm confused by your use of the term "Home page"....what is it youre looking for?

    Well right now I have a custom Yahho home page, which comes up when I go on line.
    I have my email info, investments, Sox and Giants news and other customized sections of things I'm interested in.
    My old "My Yahoo" page was fine. The new format I had to switch to is a nightmare.

    It did latch on, and many Chrome users had to uninstall it.

    ok. that concept is a bit outdated nowadays. like, its out there, but I couldn't tell you how to go about it. it's basically custom RSS(RichSiteSummary) which combines the constant stream of updated news sources, or blogs, etc... to appear on whatever youre looking at.

    Morehead is outdated.

    Wasn't Conduit.

    I forgot the name, but it latched on and basically crashed my Chrome and almost crashed my computer. I went and uninstalled the virus, but Chrome was still being slow. So I uninstalled Chrome.

    The weird thing is, every time I go to re-install Chrome, it goes back to being super slow. So something is still latchdd onto it...
