Launchpage.org – How to remove?
What is Launchpage.org?
Launchpage.org is a browser hijacker that must have entered your computer along with free software. You need to start paying more attention to how you install programs because Launchpage.org is on your computer because you allowed it to install yourself. It will not harm your system by itself but that does not mean it should remain on your computer. It will make changes to your browser and set itself as your homepage. By doing so, it is making it easier to redirect you to sponsored pages, which is the main reason a hijacker even exists. It aims to generate income by directing you to those sites. In some cases, browser hijackers can even redirect users to malicious sites where malware could be obtained. A browser hijacker has no place on your computer, so we suggest you uninstall Launchpage.org at once.
How does Launchpage.org spread?
Browser hijackers spread using software bundles and you allow them install yourself. When installing free software you get from the Internet, look out for added items. Pay attention to the installation process and choose Advanced or Custom settings if available. If something has been added, it will be shown in those settings. You will also have the option of deselecting that something and all you have to do is uncheck a box. If you do not want to end up having to remove Launchpage.org or similar again, pay attention to what and how you install it.

You will not be asked to permit the changes and will not be able to undo them unless you delete Launchpage.org first. Launchpage.org will be presented as a reliable search engine but in reality, it may be inserting sponsored content into the results.
