Ustart.org is a website which functions as a search engine which you can customize according to your interests. When you open the website, a welcome window will appear. You will find 13 different categories which you can choose in order to receive the latest news regarding your selections. For example, you can choose from video games, economy, movies, computers, sports, Google drive and some other options. After you select preferred options and click the Create my page! button, new tiles leading to various websites are displays. However, some unwanted tiles may be presented as well.

Ustart.org is also referred to as browser hijacker because very often people find it as their home page and search provider. This usually happens because of careless installation of programs. If you do not read the information provided in the installation wizard, you may skip some important checkboxes. As a result, you may think that ustart.org has infected the computer. Do not worry about the search engine in question as you can remove it from the PC and your browsers.

It has been found that the very ustart.org promotes its extensions. The chance to install the plug-in is given to the users who enter the website for the first time after having selected the categories which will be presented whenever the user opens the website:

You can now choose the skin of your page and install our browser extension.

After we had installed the extension, we found that no add-on was located in the Toolbars and Extensions section. The only change was that the search provider was changed to uStart, not to mention that the home page was changed to ustart.org.

The search results have been found to be provided by Google search; however, some links to advertising websites are also presented. Even though the links to websites advertising some products or serviced are marked, we highly recommend that you remove ustart.org from your computer. Some of the tiles you select may lead you to suspicious websites, which is why you should avoid the search engine in questions.
