    Hi.
    Some of my cousins downloaded Incredibar MyStart into my computer. I deleted the bar from system, so it’s not showing anymore, but MyStart has become my browser.
    Im very worried because my Anti-Virus system does not detect MyStart. its taking over all my browsers, and i everything is working very slow. Almost all pages are encrypted, and broken. Everything leads to MyStart page.
    Im not experienced in computer, but i really need to remove this from my system in free, since Im just a student, i dont have a credit card.

    Thank you.
    Please help me out.
    Isabella.

      It depends on what browser you’re using.
      If you’re using Google Chrome, click the tool at the top-right corner of the screen, and it will show a list of options to choose from. Click “Settings”, then click “Manage search engines” under the “Search” category. After that, you will see “Mystart Incredibar” at the top of the list. Click “Make Default” for the Google search engine, then go over the Mystart engine then click the X.
      After that, click “Set Pages” under the “On Startup” category. Once you’ve done that, go over the Mystart, and click the X.
      But if you’re using a Mac / another browser, I cannot help you.

    I also recommend that you download and run Combofix. THE best malware remover. You can get a free copy of it at bleepingcomputer.com. Keep it store somewhere on your PC or and external drive and use it for malware.

          Go to chrome://chrome/extensions/ and check if you have Mystart Incredibar there – remove it if it is there.

          If not but you still have search and home page set to Incredibar go to:
          chrome://chrome/settings/
          and edit your startup, and search engines.

          It is shown in the video from 2:20

    Thank you!!! It seems like I finally got rid of it…
    In firefox (about:)config in filter field I typed “search” (like in the you-tube videoguide) and “mystart” (I read that further up this page) and reset all keys related, but it didn’t solve the problem. I then filtered “incredibar” and manually reset a bunch of keys (maybe around 50!!) and now everything appears to be back to normal…
    Great work guys and good luck everyone.

    I use Firefox and am unable to get rid of MyStart. I have uninstalled the things you have mentioned above; and gone into about:config and have reset or changed to google. My home page is now the default Mozilla about:home. However when I try to search using this it re-directs me to a mystart search. How can I fix this problem.

    Thank you in advance.

    PLEASE do not forget to do this for every user on your computer! If you don’t, you will have them log on, use Firefox, they are still infected, and YOU get reinfected. Ask me how I know!? LOL

    Hello,
    thanks, the Firefox instructions helped me to repair my FF12.0 !
    One thing: instead of entering something new, all the infested config-values should be right-clicked and then ‘reset’-ed. cheers, Simon.
