Google Chrome.

I have tried uninstalling it and resetting all of the other things that would remove this stupid thing. Still there. When I click on my home page button, it sends me to my home page but still opens a new tab to this hijacker browser.

I am having the same problem. I have done everything, changed all the properties locations, uninstalled all things that were installed when this damn thing took over, ran malwarebytes, adaware antivirus, ccleaner, hitman pro, anvi smartdefender, and a few others trying to get this thing removed, started in safe mode and deleted some files that looked suspicious. I do not know what else to do. This thing is hiding really well. Any additional advice other than what is already here????

Hi Arteclea,

The final solution to remove the nationzoom.com is to repair the shortcut and change the properties location. (both on desktop and startup menu)

As you have done this and still have the same problem. I highly recommend you clear your browser cookies.

To do that, please open the Cloud System Booster, Go to Disk Cleaner, on Internet Explorer,Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox tab, please select Internet Explorer Cookies, Mozilla Firefox Cookies and Google Chrome Cookies option, and then start the scan.

After you clean the cookies, please make sure to uncheck the options by clicking on the "Default" in the Disk Cleaner Tab.
