    I have gone through my entire registry deleting all things iminent or incredibar or mystart, i have followed these directions, tried malwarebytes, and I still cant get rid of mystart from google chrome. It comes up when I open a new tab. It wont open when google chome opens anymore, only when you hit new tab.

  3. Bobby says:

    You also need to remove extensions from Google Chrome.
    – click the wrench icon
    – go to tools > extensions
    – find mystart incredibar extensions and delete it.

  4. liam says:

    Just discovered what appears to have worked in Chrome,

    click wrench – then extensions on left and disable anything listed

  5. AJ says:

    I’ve done all of the above including the extensions in Chrome, the cleanup of both Chrome and IE on my laptop. When starting Chrome, MyStart does not open, but when I open a new window or a new tab, it goes to MyStart. Please advise if there’s more to try.


  6. dwight says:

    To those who are having problems with CHROME’S NEW TAB:

    1. Click the Wrench icon on the browser. It is in the top right hand corner.
    2. Go to Settings. This will open Chrome’s ‘Settings’ window.
    3. At the left hand side of the window, you will see three options namely History, Extensions and Settings, click Extensions.
    4. Delete the extension/add-on that says something like New Tab or any relevant stuff. By default, there are no extensions installed in Chrome, so it is safe to remove them all.

  7. Abhishek says:

    Chome or Chrome’s Tabs Opens to MyStart Page Solution.
    1. Click the Wrench icon on the browser. It is in the top right hand corner.
    2. Go to Settings. This will open Chrome’s ‘Settings’ window.
    3 In On Start-Up
    Open a specific page or set of pages. Set pages <-Click on it
    4. Delete any entry that has Mystart written in it.

  8. Dawn says:

    Abhishek thank you so much for the solution to this, i’ve been trying to fix this all day, despite malaware bytes detecting the spyware only doing what you said got rid of the problem.

  9. Nizar Ali says:

    I did all that is written in the instruction to remove incredibar, but it keeps coming back when ever I open new tab. I got AVG toolbar installed, now there is war between AVG and Mystart to open start page. I also reinstalled chrome and removed mozilla firefox all together. Man this maleware is very stubborn. I would really salute someone who can guide me to successfully remove this maleware from my laptop.

  10. tm says:

    Dwight, thanks for that great advice. The malevolent extension looks benign when you see it, in fact it looks like it is Google. I removed it and all is fine now. Well done.

  11. PG says:

    Hurray, I got it !
    I did what Agelos said but still it was there.
    Then I had a look at at the file called * “C:\Users\{USERNAME}\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\{NAME}.default\prefs.js
    And the line ”’user_pref(“browser.newtab.url”, “…”)”’ was back on each Firefox startup, so I thought about the firefox addons that could have this kind of behavior.
    I disabled a bunch of them, and then it simply disappeared.
    Of course you need to go back to “C:\Users\{USERNAME}\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\{NAME}.default\prefs.js
    And remove the line ”’user_pref(“browser.newtab.url”, “…”)”’

    Then I enabled them again but one by one, and I finally found the faulty addon:
    ” Password Exporter 1.2.1″
    Again have a look at “pref.js” cause it might be back again.

    So please remove this addon and all should be fine for you, In case this in not this addon, you can try to disabled all of your addons and then enable them back to see which one it is.
    Hope this helps

  12. PG says:

    Aggelos procedure is good, but if you are using Firefox it could also come from a ‘bad’ addon called ‘Password exporter 1.2.1’.
    So your first step before doing what Aggelos said is to remove this addon and restart Firefox, then you follow Aggelos instructions.

  13. PJ says:

    Abhishek thanks for a great solution – its doesnt appear any more in chrome – good simple solution. I have been trying for days to find a solution – thanks

  14. PL says:

    Hej. MANGE tak for din/jeres hjælp. jeg kæmpede flere timer med MYSTART, inde jeg fandt dette websted, og fulgte anvisningerne for Google Chrome. Nu er jeg endelig fri af den fæle ting tundind tak :-)

  15. Christina says:

    Thank you for you help. It restores one’s faith in humanity knowing there are still some genuine kind soles willing to help others out. You help is greatly appreciated more than you might realize.

    Internet Explorer 9 solver fixed my problem. Thanks again and all the very best to you.

  16. amol says:

    go in to your extensions there should be one with a orange background and a magnifying glass remove it. I had it too and I just got rid of it that way.
    really simple…….

  17. dennis redfield says:

    I was infected with the and followed the steps above and the new tab STILL reverted to incredibar.
    Under Tools/exstensions I found an extension called “New Tab For Google” which when deleted got rid of the beast.

  18. Rohan says:

    Does my start by incredibar have anything to do with babylon search? Also with others does it change to your homepage? I use two computers at home on one which is about five to six years old it comes up with babylon search in another tab. On the new one it comes up with my start by incredibar in a new tab.

  19. Scott Boor says:

    Dennis Redfield’s tip finally got this monster off my machine. After deleting all the programs, extensions and other tidbits connected to it, this final step finally got rid of it.

    On Startup
    – Open the New Tab page
    – Continue where I left off
    – Open a specific page or set of pages. Set pages

    Set pages will still show this incredibar page after going through all of the installations. Change this to

    Thanks a million. I couldn’t thank you more. I thought my computer was going to someday drop dead and i would have had to have it sent away for a month to get in fixed. Thanks to you that didn’t happen. If I ever have a problem again this website will be the first place I visit.

    I have done all that is taught here but its still blocking my internet connection and my antivirus cant find it. I have mozilla browser. Is there anything else I can try.

    It’s amazing to come across your blog every once in a while that isn’t exact same outdated re-written material. I’m book-marking and will also be tweeting this in order to my followers!

  32. John says:

    I removed everything per the instructions as well as the comments at the bottom and still received the !^#*&!”incredibar” when opening a New Tab in Google Chrome. In addition, I also uninstalled Google Chrome Packages in Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs, which appears to have finally gotten rid of this really annoying thing. If you have other search engines installed, it may take uninstalling and reinstalling to get rid of this thing. Hope this helps and works for you. Good luck!

  33. Brenda Wilhite says:

    I paid a professional tech a fortune to clean my machine of Incredibar, my start, fun moods, yontoo and a bunch of others. I’d tried to do it myself for sometime. Tonight when I opened Google Chrome I received a message that looked like a Chrome legit message. It wanted me to click for IB UPDATER to be updated. I goggled IB Updater and found out that it is Incredibar. WOW warning everyone to watch that sneaky hijackers trick.

  34. Seaumas says:

    The easiest way I can think of to get rid of this problem if there are equal and better options is simply to remove the app (or in this case the browser) and use another. The current Firefox 17 seems to have taken the responsibility to eliminate this problem and is more secure so I use it as my default. Opera is clean as is Verizon though Yahoo may come up as a grabber in Google. I also like Safari. Comodo Dragon is great and has its own protection suite. Once there is an infection I think it is the best policy to be a good consumer and avoid the product. The market takes care of the rest. Boycott Google until they fix their own problems? I’ve got better things to do with my debugger time.

  35. Rich says:

    I followed Dwight’s advice and it worked! The Incredibar extension is disguised to be something else. I deleted and it and now the problem is solved. Wow. THANK YOU.

  36. cris says:

    worked like a charm for fixing my firefox tabs. deleted this virus ages ago but could never figure out why when i opened a new tab it would still go to mystart.

  37. Ashley says:

    I am not a computer-savvy person at all, and this website has successfully helped me remove a very difficult case of MyStart by Incredibar. Thank you so much! It is good to know there are ways to get help!

  38. Mick C says:

    Thanks all. I got rid of it appearing as ‘new tab’ in Firefox by resetting Firefox thru the troubleshooting window.

    I’ve sent a complaint to who were advertising thru Incredibar. If we can get companies not to sponsor this it may help, so if a company you use does it, tell them what you think!

  39. Mark says:

    Thank you so much!
    This Incredibar has been a pain for some time, but finally I cracked thanks to this page. Wonderful!
    Btw, in my ProgramsList (AddRemove Programs) the virus had called itself ‘Webassistant’… :-(

    Thanks again,

  42. donnie says:

    I had to use a combination of your suggestions and the suggestions of the comments but I think the devil is back where he belongs. I ran the malware twice, my security scan twice. Each time in Safe Mode. When I tried to view a web browser, there was MyStart. I did uninstall the browsers as Seaumas suggested. I uninstalled Firefox first, then reinstalled, then uninstalled dogpile (love that browser.) I did look at my programs (remove programs then the list) when by Brenda Wilhite mention IB Updater and there were 2 programs that I removed. I then uninstalled Internet Explorer. I went back to my dogpile and no switching. Praying it stays that way. THANK YOU FOR THIS VALUABLE WEBSITE

    I am removing from Mozilla Firefox. I am at Step 8. It says to type “name of malware” in search bar. Can I just highlight each entry and hit reset? Do I copy and paste to search bar or does it matter?
    I have about 100 of them!! Do I have to go through each one separately? This is a copy of the one at the top of list and then there are many like the one below it . These are a couple of examples

  46. ALAN says:

    I could not TOTALLY remove incredibar/Mystart even after having followed many advice actions. I have now finally done it by deleting an entry in the “extensions” of tools & settings. The only entry on my computer was the “google chrome” one so I deleted this and rebooted. problem solved, for me any way. I now believe that incredibar was attached to this google chrome listing.
    Can you pass this on for others to try.
    Regards Alan

    Thanks so much for the help. Followed the instructions to the “T” and it worked. Not sure why it’s not working for others, well, Okay, I do but I won’t go there.

  50. J6tuc says:

    Hi All

    Has same problem with doing all the above yet when i opened a new tab in chrome it reappeared, so decided to search deeper in Regedit and found the below, if you go into HKEY local machine, then open software, then open Wow6432Node, then open google, then open chrome, then open extensions, you will now find a list, carefully one at a time click on each folder and read what it is in the right hand window, you are looking for the one quoting open Tab and under the name of Perion, they are the makers of incredibar, delete only this folder and it will no longer open tabs to it on chrome, if you have the problem with another browser look for it under the folder Wow6432Node, finder your browser and follow as above and delete only that folder.
    Hope that helps.
