See: How to remove the Startnow Toolbar

You may also possibly find it by clicking the Firefox button, go to Add-ons, then Extensions. If you see any reference to it in there, remove it.

Go to your Control Panel, Click on Programs (or similar option if not using Windows 7), Click on Programs and Features. "Startnow Toolbar" should be listed as a program that you can right click on and select uninstall. Follow the wizard instructions to uninstall.

It's not listed in Programs. Mine isn't a toolbar but a page. Startnow appears when I click on the Firefox button on my desktop. I've read about it but honestly, I don't have the computer knowledge to truly understand the explanations/suggestions. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hello Alicia-

I just finished removing the smart now toolbar, and when I first started Firefox, it came up as my home page, which is what it has done to yours. Click on the Firefox button, and click Options, Options. In the General tab, under Start Up is where you would set up the home page(s) you would like to assign. If the web address is changed to a smart now page that matches what's in your address bar, select all, backspace and type in the web page you had before. That's should take you back to normal!

Hello

Writing on July 16. Start Now infiltrated my computer when I was updating my Adobe Reader. So please beware. Anyway the evil Start Now home page has finally been deleted from my home computer with the expert help of this post below. Start with the instructions below that was written to Alicia.

I used antispyware, also removed startnow from add/remove programs and checked registry for any startnow entries (none). My homepage is correct but I still have the startnow toolbar and my internet connection is slower than Christmas in July.

SUCCESS!! After I uninstalled startnow I still had the toolbar. Go to "Extensions" in Add-on Manager and delete the toolbar there.

FINALLY!!

I had previously gone to control panel and add/delete programs and deleted "Start Now" and that appeared successful. However, the "Start Now" page kept opening up when clicking on "Firefox." Following one of the suggestions on the Google blog seemed to finish off the deleting process. That is, click on Firefox then click on tools and then click on options wherein "Start Now" will appear in the start up page box as the page of choice. I changed that to "msn.com" and now when I click on Firefox my page of choice, "msn.com" comes up (without delay) so it appears that I've successfully cleaned the system up. Good luck.....hope this works.

  2. Click the "Tools" menu
  3. Click the "Add-ons" menu item
  4. Click the "Extensions" tab on the Add-ons pop up screen
  5. Click the "Startnow ToolBar" entry from the list of installed add-ons
  6. Click the "Uninstall" button that appears
  7. Click the "Uninstall" button on the pop up screen
  8. Click the "Restart FireFox" button that appears on the Add-ons pop up screen (or just close and reopen Firefox)

This is what worked on my girlfriends computer. Control Panel, unintsall program. Her homepage is still not working properly, but maybe a restart will resolve that tonight. It begs the question...... How in the hell did this program automatically show up on this computer? She is so good about not installing programs, but this one snuck through!!! Windows update?

I tried lotsa stuff in my old baga trix and here is what finally worked for me on Win XP: Right click from "Start" for "Search." Plug in "Startnow" for a search of all files on the main drive. Open the resulting folder and an executable "uninstall" file will appear. Follow thru with the wizard and both Firefox and Windows will shutdown. Restart both and and find the "startnow" toolbar along with all of the other bait-boxes will have been trashed. Cheerz and good luck with a great browser: Firefox"
