    I do not want blekko as my default search provider. How do I change my default to something else.

      For most browsers you can click on the arrow in the default search engine box and just choose a different search engine. That should bring up the icon of the search engine you chose and when you enter text in that box and hit the search icon, you should search the search engine you chose.
