Urambled is a potentially unwanted application that can get installed in any browser and cause it to initiate page-redirects and show invasive ads on the screen. Apps like Urambled are categorized as browser hijackers and experts advise to uninstall them to keep the computer safe.

Urambled Virus 1024x539

The presence of Urambled in your computer could not only be irritating but could also make your system less safe and more likely to get attacked by some highly dangerous malware infections the likes of Trojan Horses or Ransomware viruses. That is why it is important to learn how to uninstall Urambled and liberate your browser from its presence. There, however, isn’t a simple method to do this manually, as most hijackers don’t provide the user with a straightforward uninstallation method. Instead, they latch onto browsers such as Firefox, Safari, Edge, and Chrome and fill them with ads, replace their search engines, install new toolbars, and cause automatic page-redirects to ad-heavy sites.

The Unrambled.com virus

The Unrambled.com virus change the addresses of the starting page and/or of the new-tab page so that the newly added ones would provide further exposure to some of the hijacker’s partnering sites. To prevent getting uninstalled easily, the Unrambled.com virus also makes changes in the system Registry.

Those changes are both difficult to locate and remove and they may also potentially make the affected system less safe and more exposed to other hazards from the Internet. In and of itself, a browser hijacker like Urambled or Reverse Captcha wouldn’t typically damage anything in the computer where it’s installed.

Please follow all the steps below in order to remove Urambled!

How to remove Urambled

  1. First, click the Start Menu on your Windows PC.
  2. Type Programs and Settings in the Start Menu, click the first item, and find Urambled in the programs list that would show up.
  3. Select Urambled from the list and click on Uninstall.
  4. Follow the steps in the removal wizard.

What we suggest you do first is, check the list of programs that are presently installed on the infected device and uninstall any rogue software that you find there:

  • From the Start Menu, navigate to Control Panel ->>> Programs and Features ->>> Uninstall a Program.
  • Next, carefully search for unfamiliar programs or programs that have been installed recently and could be related to Urambled.
  • If you find any of the programs suspicious then uninstall them if they turn out to be linked to Urambled.
  • If a notification appears on your screen when you try to uninstall a specific questionable program prompting you to just alter it or repair it, make sure you choose NO and complete the steps from the removal wizard.

Remove Urambled from Chrome

  1. Click on the three dots in the right upper corner
  2. Go to more tools
  3. Now select extensions
  4. Remove the Urambled extension
  • Once you open Chrome, click on the three-dots icon to open the browser’s menu, go to More Tools/ More Options, and then to Extensions.
  • Again, find the items on that page that could be linked to Urambled and/or that might be causing problems in the browser and delete them.
  • Afterwards, go to this folder: Computer > C: > Users > *Your User Account* > App Data > Local > Google > Chrome > User Data. In there, you will find a folder named Default – you should change its name to Backup Default and restart the PC.
  • Note that the App Data folder is normally hidden so you’d have to first make the hidden files and folders on your PC visible before you can access it.

How to get rid of Urambled on FF/Edge/etc.

  1. Open the browser and select the menu icon.
  2. From the menu, click on the Add-ons button.
  3. Look for the Urambled extension
  4. Get rid of Urambled by removing it from extensions

If using Firefox:

  • Open Firefox
  • Select the three parallel lines menu and go to Add-ons.
  • Find the unwanted add-on and delete it from the browser – if there is more than one unwanted extension, remove all of them.
  • Go to the browser menu again, select Options, and then click on Home from the sidebar to the left.
  • Check the current addresses for the browser’s homepage and new-tab page and change them if they are currently set to address(es) you don’t know or trust.

If using MS Edge/IE:

  • Start Edge
  • Select the browser menu and go to Extensions.
  • Find and uninstall any Edge extensions that look undesirable and unwanted.
  • Select Settings from the browser menu and click on Appearance.
  • Check the new-tab page address of the browser and if it has been modified by “Urambled” or another unwanted app, change it to an address that you’d want to be the browser’s new-tab page.

How to Delete Urambled

  1. Open task manager
  2. Look for the Urambled process
  3. Select it and click on End task
  4. Open the file location to delete Urambled
  • Access the Task Manager by pressing together the Ctrl + Alt + Del keys and then selecting Task Manager.
  • Open Processes and there try to find a process with the name of the unwanted software. If you find it, select it with the right button of the mouse and click on the Open File Location option.
  • If you don’t see a “Urambled” process in the Task Manager, look for another suspicious process with an unusual name. It is likely that the unwanted process would be using lots of RAM and CPU so pay attention to the number of resources each process is using.
  • Tip: If you think you have singled out the unwanted process but are not sure, it’s always a good idea to search for information about it on the Internet – this should give you a general idea if the process is a legitimate one from a regular program or from your OS or if it is indeed likely linked to the adware.
  • If you find another suspicious process, open its File Location too.
  • Once in the File Location folder for the suspicious process, start testing all of the files that are stored there by dragging them to our free online scanner available below.
  • Each file will be scanned with up to 64 antivirus programs to ensure maximum accuracy
    This scanner is free and will always remain free for our website's users.
    This file is not matched with any known malware in the database. You can either do a full real-time scan of the file or skip it to upload a new file. Doing a full scan with 64 antivirus programs can take up to 3-4 minutes per file.

    • If the scanner finds malware in any of the files, return to the Processes tab in the Task Manager, select the suspected process, and then select the End Process option to quit it.
    • Go back to the folder where the files of that process are located and delete all of the files that you are allowed to delete. If all files get deleted normally, exit the folder and delete that folder too. If one or more of the files showed an error message when you tried to delete them, leave them for now and return to try to delete them again once you’ve completed the rest of the guide.

    How to Uninstall Urambled

    1. Click on the home button
    2. Search for Startup Apps
    3. Look for Urambled in there
    4. Uninstall Urambled from Startup Apps by turning it off
    • Now you need to carefully search for and uninstall any Hostingcloud. racing-related entries from the Registry. The easiest way to do this is to open the Registry Editor app (type Regedit in the windows search field and press Enter) and then open a Find dialog (CTRL+F key combination) where you have to type the name of the threat. 
    • Perform a search by clicking on the Find Next button and delete any detected results. Do this as many times as needed until no more results are found. 
    • After that, to ensure that there are no remaining entries lined to Urambled in the Registry, go manually to the following directories and delete them:
    • HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Random Directory. 
    • HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Run/Random
    • HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Internet Explorer/Main/Random
    What is Urambled?

    Even if Unrambled makes changes in the System Registry, this will still typically not cause any direct harm (at least in most cases). However, the fact that there’s an unwanted app in your computer that messes with your browser, constantly exposes you to ads and sites with unknown origins, and tampers with the settings of your computer’s registry means that the chances of landing a damaging threat such as a Trojan or a Ransomware are greatly increased. One of the most common sources of malware are the various types of malicious ads that can be encountered all over the Internet. We aren’t saying that all of the ads displayed by Urambled are like that, but there’s still a chance that some of them might be unsafe or at least be linked to some online addresses with questionable content. Therefore, even if Urambled doesn’t represent a direct threat to the health and security of your system, its uninstallation is still advisable as this will help keep your computer safer.

    Is Unrambled dangerous?

    As we already pointed out in the paragraph above, removing apps like Urambled isn’t particularly easy considering how software of this type is usually intentionally made to have a difficult removal. Nevertheless, if you follow our guidance and make use of the removal tool linked below, we believe that you should be able to take care of the unwanted app and remove everything that it has installed in your browser. And in case you don’t understand something from the removal guide, you can always ask for help in the comments section.
