A few days ago I was looking for a program that is not so famous. The program so I had a hard time finding the software. Finally, I’ve reached a website where they are giving this software.
I already know about how the website and advertisement fool visitors. But I clicked the download link anyway and when I opened the program; it looks suspicious to me. I open the task manager Android to kill this process as soon as possible.
But guess what I was late, the program already infected my computer, and I could not help but wait to see what actually they did or what is affected in my computer.
Without wasting another second, I open the control panel and what started 4 looking suspicious programs. There-there was two programs that had a weird name, so I did uninstall them.
So my computer is safe now! I took a heavy breath. This feeling was about to end as soon I opened the chrome browser. It started with an ugly search engine page that I never knew before so did restarted the computer, next time the browser automatically opened with a page link “startgo123, for instance.
Also clicking on the new page, open another weird link, a search engine. They think it is.
Here is what I did to get Rid of it.
I Tried to google at the first place. And found some web articles having the “site link” as the title. They didn’t help me; they suggest installing some tools. I did this earlier and got in this situation.

What you can do now is to update your Chrome browser.
Go to chrome settings, then About and let Chrome update itself.
Once done, click on the “Relaunch” button to restart chrome. Now if you open a new tab, you’ll the default new tab.
