Delete Webstarts.biz from Browser Permanently
I am facing a very tough time as my browser has been hijacked by Webstarts.biz. The browser is responding abnormally and I don’t know what happened and suddenly the homepage got altered with http://www.Webstarts.biz and I am unable to remove it. From then, I constantly see notification which asks to download certain program, update application, pop-ups to get telephonic technical assistance, hyperlinks and on. I am unable to understand what this domain is? Is it a browser-hijacker? I have uninstalled so many programs that I had downloaded recently including a game software and Adobe flash player. Still, the default homepage is hijacked by Webstarts.biz and I don’t know how to remove it permanently. Please help.
