In this little guide, you will learn how to Remove Webalta from the Registry. For its promotion, the Russian search engine Webalta does not use the most “unobtrusive” methods, and therefore the question of how to get rid of this search engine as a starting point and remove other signs of Webalta on your computer is quite relevant.
Remove Webalta from the Registry
First of all, you should clear the registry of all entries created thereby Webalta.
To do this, click “Start” – “Run” (or press Windows + R), type “regedit” and click “OK”. As a result of this action, the registry editor will start.
In the Registry Editor menu, select “Edit” – “Find”, in the search box, enter “webalta” and click “Find Next”.
After a while, when the search is complete, you will see a list of all registry settings where we found webalta mentions. You can safely delete them all by right-clicking on them and selecting “Delete”.
Just in case, after you have deleted all the values listed in the Webalta registry to start the search again – it is possible that there will be more findings.
This is only the first stage. Despite the fact that we have deleted all data about Webalta from the registry, when you start the browser as a home page, you will still most likely see start.webalta.ru (home.webalta.ru).
Webalta start page – How to clean
To remove the Webalta homepage in browsers, follow these steps:
- Remove the launch of the Webalta page in your browser shortcut. To do this, right-click on the shortcut you normally use to start the Internet browser and select “Properties” from the context menu. On the “Object” tab, you will most likely see something like ” C: Program Files Mozilla Firefox Firefox. Exe” // start. webalta. ru. Obviously, if the mention of webalta is present, then this parameter must be deleted. After deleting “//start.webalta.ru”, click “Apply”.
- Change the start page in the browser itself. In all browsers, this is done in the basic settings menu. It doesn’t matter if you use Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Yandex Browser, Opera or something else.
- If you have Mozilla Firefox, you also need to find user files. js and prefs. js (You can use a computer search). Open the found files in Notepad and find the line that launches webalta as the browser start page. The string can look like user_pref (“browser.startup.homepage”, “//webalta.ru”). Delete the webalta address. You can replace it with the address of Yandex, Google, or another page at your discretion.
Another step: go to the “Control Panel” – “Add or Remove Programs” (or “Programs and Tools”), and see if there is any Webalta program. If it is available there, then remove it from your computer.
This is the end of it, if all the steps have been done carefully, we have managed to get rid of Webalta.
