Aartemis browser hijacker changes the "Target" field of one's Google Chrome shortcut. To fix this - locate your Google Chrome shortcut on your Desktop and click the right mouse button over it. In the opened menu choose "Properties". In the opened window locate Target field and eliminate all text (hxxp://www.aartemis.com/...) which is entered after "C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe"

Remove Aartemis related browser extensions:


Click on bars icon (top right of the screen), select "Tools" and click on "Extensions".  Locate "Extended Protection" and "Lightning Newtab" select them and click on a trash can icon.

Change homepage:


Click on the wrench (bars) icon, select "Settings". In "On startup" section click "set pages", hover your mouse over aartemis.com and click the x symbol. Now you can add your preferred website as your homepage.

Change default search engine:


To change your default search engine in Google Chrome: Click on the "Bars" icon (top right corner), select "Settings", in "Search" section click "Manage Search Engines...", remove "aartemis" and add or select your preferred.
