Problem replacing Google with DuckDuckGo

I have tried several times now to make DuckDuckGo my default search engine using Internet Options but it always reverts to Google when I try to open IE again.

How do I get rid of Google?

You can easily change to the DDG search engine by doing this.

If the problem persists, try reseting your IE browser, or checking for viruses in your system, as many viruses are annoyingly changing the search engines to ones that give you false data, and potentiatly giving you more malware.

Thanks for your suggestion. Can you re-send it to me in English? This version is in Spanish I believe.

Thanks again.

My computer isn't set up with an english language. Either way, just follow the red arrows. It can't become easier than that.

Just follow the arrows.
