What Is Search-startpage.com?
Search-startpage is a browser hijacker. Browser hijackers are considered potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) and can be installed either as programs or as browser add-ons, sometimes both at the same time. A browser hijacker changes browser settings – start page, new tab page, homepage, default search engine – so that the user is forced to visit a certain site repeatedly. Search-startpage in particular sets default search to https://secure.search-startpage.com/… which in turn redirects users to search results on www.google.com, www.bing.com, www.yandex.ru or another search engine. This removal guide will show you how to get rid of Search-startpage and remove https://secure.search-startpage.com/ from your search settings.
