I post this with much trepidation after my baptism by fire recently, and knowing that this question has been asked and answered already.

My problem is that I cannot seem to remove start.funmoods as the default search engine when I type into the omnibox in Chrome - I have followed the instruction in the answer to the previous question on this topic. In particular:

  1. I deleted funmods using the control panel -> add/remove programs
  2. Under wrench-tools-extensions funmods is not mentioned
  3. Under wrench-settings-manage search engines, there is nothing listed at all.
  4. Restarted chrome and rebooting have not helped.

In the end I was able to solve this by uninstalling Chrome and re-installing it again.

  1. Click the wrench icon.

  2. Go to Settings.

  3. Under the Search section click on Manage Search Engines.

  4. Delete all search engines under Other Search Engines, and the ones you don't need under Default search settings.

  5. Set Google, Yahoo or Bing as your default search engine by hovering over one of them and clicking Make Default.

Hope that helps.

Thanks, but as I mentioned (point 3 in my post) there is nothing listed at all under "manage search engines" –  Joe King Jul 7 '12 at 19:55
    
If you don't see anything at all, try manually adding Google. You should see a text field that says "Add new search engine." Type a name for it along with your preferred keyword. Use this for the URL: google.com/search?q=%s –  Ellesa Jul 8 '12 at 11:56
    
Thank you again. I have just tried what you suggest. I wanted to post an screencapture but I don't have enough reputation :( When I do this, three purple boxes appear just under "Other search engines", I typed "Google" in the first two and what you wrote for the third one and then clicked on OK. The window then disappeared and when I went back to through Wrench-Settings-Manage Search engines, it is all blank again :( and funmoods still comes up when I type in the omnibox –  Joe King Jul 8 '12 at 12:44
