Have you been a victim of the MyStart Incredibar add-on? If you are, then you've probably figured out by now that it's very, very hard to remove. Even antivirus and anti-malware programs aren't able to detect this pesky program. So what gives?
The MyStart Incredibar program is from Perion Network, an Israeli company that specializes in custom internet products. The program itself has no malicious code— hence the non-detection of security programs—but what it does it redirect victims to pages with injected ads, force-start with a MyStart Incredibar Google-based search page, and bring up pop-ups to your browser, all irritating nonetheless.
But where does one get the MyStart Incredibar program? It's usually bundled with downloadable freeware available on the internet such as photo editing tools, free video editing software, etc. Be sure to uncheck all bundled programs from now on.
And finally the question begging to be answered, "How do I remove the MyStart Incredibar add-on from my browser and PC?" Well, here's how I did it.
1. Go to Task Manager, find the MyStart Incredibar process, and kill/end it;
2. Go to your Control Panel, click on Add/Remove Programs, and uninstall the MyStart Incredibar program;
3. Go to Search, type in MyStart Incredibar, or simply Incredibar (anything related to the file name actually e.g. Perion) and search your C:/. Delete anything you come across;
4. Go to regedit, click Edit, click Find, then type Incredibar (same as step 3). Delete anything the Registry Editor highlights in relation to the Incredibar. Be careful of deleting registry entries though. Always double-check;
5. If the MyStart Incredibar homepage is still showing up in your browser at this point, reset your browser. How to reset your browser instructions for Firefox, IE, and Google Chrome are readily available on the internet.
And that's how you uninstall and remove the MyStart Incredibar program from your browser and your PC.
