    I went to send you a message but its off. Click my name and drop me a mail I can give you directions how to get that off there. If its something installed. Other than that you just probably need to hange ur homepage. But if its something installed it may just keep resetting that. I’ll wait for you to msg me.

    Blekko isn’t a virus. Its a search engine. Like google, bing, or yahoo. Here’s how to get rid of it:

    Open Blekko.
    Copy + paste this in the search bar => http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/new…

    Download firefox. Its better than the internet.
    After its installed, if bookmarks were saved on Blekko, copy + paste the links into firefox and bookmark them all.
    Then, right click on the Blekko icon on your desktop, and click uninstall. If that option isn’t there, just put it in the recycle bin/trash can.

    For Firefox:

    You can remove the blekko toolbar from Firefox by going to Tools -> Add-ons, and then clicking on “Extensions”. The BlekkoToolbar should be showing as one of your Add-ons. Click on it and you will get a button to “Uninstall” – click on that button to uninstall the toolbar.

    For IE:

    Go to your control panel and choose to “uninstall a program.” Choose the blekko toolbar and click on “uninstall.”

    I did the same thing. For the last two days, I’ve tried every solution out there. None of them worked. It stayed on my Internet Explorer, and Firefox. So, this Eric guy who commented is wrong. Idiot. You can delete, uninstall, and whatever till you want to hang yourself. It will not go away. I finally got rid of the Blekko crap this morning. I did a system restore from three days ago, and now my life can go on. You usually just…Open System Restore by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking All Programs, clicking Accessories, clicking System Tools, and then clicking System Restore.‍ Good luck.

    every one talks about firefox…We do not have it & I can’t get rid of the “Blekko” page, We where quite happy with Google, as my boyfriend is not computer savy for that matter I not either but I use yahoo at work so this blekko is driving him nuts it’ been on for months & I can’t get it off. Are you sure this isn’t so backward virus of some type. As it should be easy to re-add google in it place and get him off my back
