the annoyance: i don’t know how i got it but blekko search somehow got installed on my google chrome and would not go away. i removed it from my add/remove programs but even after that when i opened chrome i kept seeing an extra tab going to blekko search. aaahhhh!!! after some reading some people mentioned that this gets installed from CNET. aiya!
how to get rid of this suckah: go into chrome settings, then under section “Search” click “Manage Search Engines” and remove blekko (click the x box). after that, go back to the settings and under section “On Startup” click “Set pages” (right next to “Open a specific page or set of pages.”) and remove blekko from there too. that should do it!
