I took it out of two places and that worked for me. It was in Chrome and not in my computer's programs.
 
1. Click on the wrench icon (upper right corner). Choose "Settings."
 
2. At "On startup" I had this: "Open a specific page or set of pages. Set pages"
 
3. Click on "Set pages." Hover over Mystart and an X will appear. Click the X to remove it.
 
4. Next under "Search" in the same window, click on "Manage search engines." Find Mystart and delete it.
 
That's all I did. Working so far for me with no sign of the bugger since.

Remember to click the APPLY and save everything, make sure you don't have a window of MyStart open still then close it down and restart it. If you left it open anywhere or didn't follow through on the APPLY/OK parts, it won't leave.

There is unfortunately nothing to be done other than uninstalling Chrome completely, deleting whatever remains of the file in your Program files folder, and  then deleting everything cached in the temp internet folder as well. This is however a temporary solution as this is in fact a form of malware, that tracks you internet movement and aggressively takes over the browser and redirects queries to its own preferred sites.  After extensive searching there does't seem to be any program that will sort it out permanently that itself will not cost money, and introduce a new set of problems of its own.


This may help but as stated it is little more than a temporary fix, as the site you originally contracted the problem from will simply re-install it as soon as you visit it again.
