So I had been recommended to download something by a friend and when I downloaded it, Unfortunately I had clicked on one of those misleading download links. Upon doing so, I had unintentionally downloaded this problem with it. Every time I launch my browser, It redirects me to “Web start.org” which, as I’m sure you know is a browser hijacker. I’m running google chrome on a Windows 10 operating system by the way.
Now I usually don’t get caught in these traps as I’m a Computer science university student so I am capable of pinpointing problems like this if they ever arise. However, this one hijacker seems to have completely stumped me.
I tried to remove to hijacker of my own accord to no success. So I gave in and googled my problem. I’ve been searching and trying all kinds of things for hours now and just cannot remove this hijacker.
The problem is, I don’t have an anti virus software and I don’t even have a shred of money available to temporarily purchase one (As mentioned above, I’m attending university. All money I have goes to my living costs).
It doesn’t show up in my control panel, I cant pinpoint the files in the registry editor, recreating files of my browser didn’t work either and the Microsoft system scanner couldn’t find it.
So as you can see I’m in a bit of a problem as I use my laptop all the time. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
