HI, I have recently had an unwanted web page at start-up in Google Chrome (ISTART.WEBSEARCHES.COM). Not sure how it accessed my pc. The only addition to my software was to download VLC Media player, recently.

 

My system:- Gigabyte GA-7VR, with latest BIOS. AMD Athlon xp 2100+. Ati Radeon 9000. 150GB hdd. 1GB ddr ram. 500 watt psu. Running on Win XP SP3 with all updates (as of today).

 

I am using Bitdefender anti-virus. with latest updates. I have scanned system with Malawarebytes and used JRT junk removal tool, both updated.

I tried resetting Google to defaults.

 

Can't seem to find a way to get rid of this.

 

Anybody got an answer to removing this.

 

Appreciate any solutions.

 

Regards,

 

Raymondo44

Hi JohC_21,

 

Thanks for your information. I only had to use Adaware Cleaner to resolve this issue.

 

Much appreciated,

 

Regards,
