How to get rid of Webalta
One of the search engines of the Russian Internet is Webalta. She has a kind of promotion technology. This is reflected in the fact that many Internet users once detect a change in the address of the home page in the browser. Instead of the previously set address, a completely different one appears, which includes the word “webalta”. In addition, such a program unexpectedly designates itself as the main system for searching the Internet. Such actions naturally make many users want to get rid of Webalta.
The most obvious solution is to change the address of the start page – in relation to the browser. To do this, use the usual standard methods. However, such methods do not bring the desired effect. After the browser is restarted, the address of the “uninvited guest” named Webalta will reappear in the address bar of the start page. Repeated attempts, as a rule, are also unsuccessful.
In order to successfully get rid of Webalta – you need to pay attention to the registry. This applies to almost every type of popular Internet browser. To get rid of the annoying program, you should delete those changes that it previously made to the registry. The first step should be to press the Start button on a personal computer (PC).

In it you must enter the word “webalta” and click “Find Next.” Executing this command activates the start of the search.

For this purpose, you should use the right button of the computer mouse by clicking on the desired entry. In the context menu that appears, select the “Delete” item. After that, the highlighted entry disappears. A similar result can be obtained if, after highlighting the desired line, press the Delete key.
What to do if not everything worked out
It often happens that deleting records cannot be fully implemented. For this reason, a registry scan should be performed. This procedure must be carried out several times. Be sure to wait for the moment when the result of the next search displays the value “0”. Only after that it is advisable to proceed further. When working with registry entries, you must carefully monitor which entries are deleted.
Changes to the registry must be done very carefully. Even a small mistake can lead to sad consequences. Sometimes, as a result of such inaccuracy in actions, users are forced to restore the necessary files. In addition, there is always a risk of the need to reinstall the PC operating system. For this reason, there is no need to rush while deleting registry entries. This approach guarantees a successful result.
After the registry is cleared of unnecessary entries – you will need to make changes to the browser start page. A number of standard methods are intended for this. In the Google Chrome browser, you need to click the button located on the toolbar (top right). After that, you must sequentially select the following items:
Now, opposite the item “Show the button” Home “, you need to check. After that, click on “Change”. As for another popular browser called Opera, there the general procedure consists of a smaller number of them. First you need to select the “Tools” menu (at the top left), and then “Settings” and “Basic”, after which you need to enter the address of the desired page in the “Home” line.
Setting the start address in Internet Explorer is also not difficult. To do this, just select the “Tools” menu, and then – “Internet Options.” Now you need to click on “General” and in the field “Home page” enter the desired Internet address. In order to get rid of Webalta guaranteed, it is also necessary to check the properties of browser shortcuts.
For example, selecting the “Properties” item in the context menu of the Opera browser, you need to find the “Object” tab. In the event that “webalta” is mentioned there, you should delete that part of the record, which includes the address of the page with the name of this program. You must be careful not to accidentally delete the main part of the record. After that, click on “Apply”, and then on OK.
The need for verification
Using different types of browsers implies mandatory verification of the properties of shortcuts. If you find a link leading to the start page of the webalta program, you should immediately remove such a hyperlink.
