Remove MyStartSearch Permanently From Any Browser


This is how I managed to remove MyStartSearch home page and search engine from all of my browsers, manual removal was able to remove the search etc, and I cannot find which program to uninstall or where it came from.

Here is how to get rid of this annoying adware, simple using mystartsearch removal tool.

Before you start save all of your work because your PC will restart afterwords, also bookmark this page in case you want to get back to it after restarting for reference or commenting.
  1. Download AwdCleaner  (It's not another malware and it's totally free and I am not advertising it on any way).
  2. Hit the search and let it finish depends on your disk size, it took 5 mins on my 750GB laptop.
  3. Hit clean and it will delete all malware ( you wont believe how much adware/malware I had you can check my report below ).
  4. Your machine will restart and give you a report like mine below afterwords.
Enjoy getting rid of that ugly page, and leave a comment and share with your friends to fight this beast.
