I somehow have gotten this Any Search Manager on my MacBook Air.  I believe I tried to download something sometime back, & this was the unexpected result.  When I open a new tab in Google Chrome, Safari, or Mozilla Firefox, it pops up.  I have managed to follow steps to correct it so that the regular home pages open in Safari & Mozilla Firefox.  I don't know how to fix the home page in Google Chrome.  
Here are the directions:  

a.  Go to 'On Startup' section, click on the "Set Pages" and remove the URL from the Home page

b.  Go to 'Appearance' and remove the URL from the Home page

c.  Go to 'Search' change from the dropdown menu or remove default from the "Manage search engines"


I cannot out figure out where the 'On Startup" section is.  Can you give me some direction as to how to find it?

By the looks of it, it's not a home page setting, it's an add-on. You'll need to remove it from there.

Thank you for the response!  I did ask another techie, & I received the direction I needed to get rid of the any search manager from Google Chrome.

I read the solutions given in the link that you attached, & they made sense.  I have put them in a file I keep called "Technology Help."  That
way, I can refer to it if I or someone else has a similar problem.


I really appreciate your help.
