When I go to search a new tab opens at MyStart by Incredibar. How do I remove this when MyStart was removed?

Posted

After use of the method to remove MyStart and the toolbar and folder was removed, I still get the MyStart search page when I open a new tab. I had reset my search engine to Google, but when any new tab is opened it opens to the MyStart search page.

I did this, and it did allow me to remove the MyStart search from my search engines. Now it is again clean. Thanks.
