How To Remove Ustart.org Hijacker From Your PC

Ustart.org is a website which is used by a browser hijacker to initiate malevolent activities while you browse the web. The hijacker virus can infiltrate the most popular browsers: Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari and Opera. Ustart.org is known to be an annoying browser add-on, which uses your personal data to display relevant content for you, including product offers, pop-ups and other unwanted advertisements.

Once installed, the hijacker sets Ustart.org as your homepage and your default search engine, usually without your consent.

The most common way to get infected with Ustart.org redirect is by installing some freeware or shareware applications. Many such applications are bundled with adware, such as Ustart.org. When you install the application, Ustart.org is also installed by default unless you uncheck certain checkboxes during the installation process. The bundling scheme benefits everyone but the end user. App creators are paid for every browser add-on install, whereas add-on creators get paid by displaying excessive amounts of advertisements on the victims' computers.
