MonsterMarketplace is a potentially unwanted application, which can also be called as browser hijacker. This program is not as malicious as rogue anti-spyware or ransomware, but it may lead your PC to the infiltration of this parasite by redirecting you to unfair/unknown/malicious domain. However, in most of occasions such programs are used to increase the number of website’s visitors. The clearest sign, telling you that you are infected with this browser hijacker, is continuous redirections to monstermarketplace.com website. Besides, you may also find this domain instead of your start page, default search engine or new tab page. If you suffer from redirects to this site on every web browser, you should check your machine for the MonsterMarketplace virus.
When it seeks to start interrupting users and their search sessions, MonsterMarketplace needs to get inside the system and modify some of its parameters. For that, it relies on the third-party software, such as freeware and shareware. Typically, publishers fill it up with various components for trying to earn the money, so you should be very careful when downloading such programs on your computer. As soon as it gets inside, Monster Marketplace takes over your favorite homepage on all web browsers, including Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome. If you want to stop its redirects, we recommend checking your system for browser hijacker. You will also need to change some of your system’s settings that are typically altered by this program.
When trying to remove MonsterMarketplace, you should firstly uninstall it via Add/Remove Programs. For that open:
Control Panel -> Add and Remove programs list. Here, look for Abest, QWProtect, AntivirusBest, MonsterMarketplace or similar name and click Uninstall. After that, don't forget scanning the system with updated SpyHunter and making sure that there are no malicious entries on your machine left.
Finally, remove MonsterMarketplace from each of your web browsers:
Open Internet Explorer, go ‘Tools‘ -> ”Manage Add-ons’ -> ‘Toolbars and Extensions’. Here, look for Abest, QWProtect, AntivirusBest, MonsterMarketplace and click 'uninstall'. Change your start page and default search engine back to normal.
Open Google Chrome -> click Wrench Icon -> Settings -> Manage Search Engines -> Remove Abest, QWProtect, AntivirusBest, MonsterMarketplace and other unnecessary entries from the list. Change your start page and default search engine back to normal.
Open Mozilla Firefox, go ‘Tools’ -> ‘Add-ons’ -> ‘Extensions’ and find Abest, QWProtect, AntivirusBest, MonsterMarketplace, and click ‘Uninstall’. Change your start page and default search engine back to normal.
