How to eliminate browser redirects to search.strtpoint.com?

What is Search.StrtPoint.com?

Created by InstallMac, Start Point is a browser add-on and essentially a recommendation engine. This plug-in tracks your interests and then presents a personalized homepage (search.strtpoint.com) with your favourite news, etc. The plug-in alone is useful, innovative, and popular with many Internet users, however, recent complaints from PC users regarding redirects to search.strtpoint.com make this an unwanted application. Search.strtpoint.com websites are related to StartPoint - redirects to these websites can be a consequence of computer infections and inadvertent installation of third party browser add-ons.

Mobius Radio removal instructions

What is Mobius Radio?

Created by Crazy Idea Development, Mobius Radio is a rogue application claiming to provide a feature enabling users to listen to any song instantly. On initial inspection, this may seem a useful and legitimate browser add-on, however, be aware that Mobius Radio is categorized as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) or adware. These associations are made due to a deceptive software marketing method called 'bundling' employed by Mobius Radio to install on Internet browsers without users' permission. Bundling allows developers to stealthily distribute their applications together with other software, and therefore, most users inadvertently install Mobius Radio during download of free software from freeware download websites. After successful infiltration on Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome, Mobius Radio generates various intrusive online advertisements including (but not limited to) interstitial, banner, in-text, and pop-up/under ads. It is highly probable that clicking on advertisements delivered by Mobius Radio will cause high-risk adware or malware infections.
