Opera 12.17 startup with unwanted page

  • Hi!

    Every time I startup my Opera 12.17 a tab opens with the address ""
    I have searched all over for that string, even in my regbase (WinXP, yes i still use it) and deleted it everywhere i found it, but i can't get rid of it. Where in Opera does it hide, and is it possible to remove it forever ?


  • It's a malware, so you need to find and delete the cause or it will keep reborning.

    Searching for "removing hao123" on google returns lots of results, one of them may help you.

  • Thanks a lot ! It seems that i have deleteded all by the manual way. but i obvious forgot to look at the shortcuts to Opera, there the bad guy was hiding. Anyways the tip you gave me was very helpfull. Thanks again.
