[Solved]mystartsearch-com remove from opening page

  • Hi!

    I have the 'mystartsearch' virus thing, i removed all the viruses from my pc, and fixed it, but when i open the opera browser it starts with a new page and in that page opens the 'mystartsearch'. I'v deleted from the "Search Engines" in the setting this web, and I'v changed the 'Open a specific page', but still when i open the browser it loads all my pages and open a new one with this thing.

    i also use the Chrome browser sometimes and I'v made this changes there also, and it works there, but on Opera it still exist.

    Someone know how to solve this problem?

  • Check your computer with a malware scanner like Malwarebytes.

    Try renaming the Preferences file to see if you get rid of the issue. Also check Opera's shortvut for additrional parameters.

  • Might one of those 'adware' or 'spyware' cleaners help if MBAM doesn't? I am a Linux user so I don't really keep up on it much any more but Spybot Search and Destroy and another one (I forget its name) were pretty popular and did a pretty decent job when I interacted with them. I seem to recall the latter went to a paid version so Spybot might be the best of the two ideas.

    Heh. It was "AdAware" or something like that. Google indicates it is AdAware for the latter.

    Either way, 'tis just another suggestion if the above doesn't do the trick.

  • Also, right click on your Opera icon that you use to boot Opera, check "properties" and make sure the link doesn't have mystartsearch added to it at the end of "launcher.exe"

    That was the last thing i didn't did and solved me the problem, thank you!!!!

  • If you have other browsers installed on your computer, do the same thing to make sure the mystartsearch hasn't been added to THOSE also
