Is it only the search engine you want to remove?
You can handle search engines by clicking on the little arrow to the left of the search field and choose "Manage search engines" (or similar phrase).

My previous description was for Firefox, since that was Jordan's issue (as well is the title of this topic). It was also about the search engine, but I think you want to change the start page. Is that correct?
I don't have Chrome, but maybe one of these pages can help you find the correct setting:

Hello, I have tried this in chrome at least 10 times. And it works each time - sometimes for weeks at a time. But as soon as I reboot my machine my browser is hijacked again and I'm back to that horrible lavasoft-blekko homepage. I have followed all of the steps above each time after I reboot - but lavasoft is no longer in my list of start pages or search engines and ad aware is no longer installed. I have even completely cleared my search history and cookies in browser. Please help.
I like to start using 'where I was last time' as I usually have 10 tabs open at once that I'm working in. Do I have to physically force it to open somewhere else in order for lavasoft - which has been completely uninstalled for months now - to leave me alone?
BTW, I used to love ad-aware. I installed it on many people's machines that whom I help with computer issues. Now I think it's hijack-ware and tell everyone to avoid it. Hijacking our browsers was way out of line.
