Homepage and new tab page were taken by start.search.us.com? Tried to repair the redirects but failed? This article contains step-to-step instruction on how to remove start.search.us.com redirect homepage from your computer and uninstall search.us.com toolbar from your IE/FF/Chrome. Please read more.

About Search.us.com

Search.us.com returns all the best results from leading search engines so you find what you're looking for faster.

Each search engine has its own method of searching and each will return different results. Search.us.com looks at all of them, decides which are most relevant to your search, eliminates duplicates and revals them to you. In the end, you get a list of results more complete than using any one search engine alone.


Start.search.us.com is is a browser search engine which mimics Google search. It offers web, image, news and video search. It also provides quick access to Facebook, Twitter, Wikipedia and amazon. Start.search.us.com is often promoted via other free downloads, that’s probably why people are usually unaware of how and when this gate-crasher comes to install on their browsers. It is compatible with most common used web browsers that include Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Firefox. Once it gets installed on your web browser, it changes your browser settings that results in homepage and new tab page being redirected to start.search.us.com or search.us.com. Further more, it also makes search.us.com as the default search engine.

Start.search.us.com is very annoying not because it changes the browser settings, but also due to the fact that it does not offer honest search content. When I search with keyword "antivirus", it display ads related to antivirus on the first page.
