How To Stop Google Chrome New Tab to Open Claro Search as Home Page

by Abhishek Bhatnagar on December 17, 2012


Freeware software’s for windows are in bulk so you can actually do a lot more things for free in windows as compared to Mac Os but everything comes at a cost, so most of the free software by different developer try to find ways to make money, so they either become donationware in which they ask the user for a donation money as per user own decision on the amount.

But things become more worse when developer decide to bundle adware or crap programs like search which gets installed in google chrome, firefox and internet explorer as these adware browser extensions gets installed automatically with these free software.

One such similar thing happened with me last night, when I installed a freeware software called ViStart which is a start menu for windows 8, I read things and unchecked many things while installing it on windows 8 but some how still, I could see the new Claro search page open up in google chrome every time I launch google chrome or open a new tab.


It was very annoying to see claro search page load every time in new tab or as home page so I decided to get rid of it.
