I cannot remove istart.webssearches

I'm also inlcluded with 100,000 infected users. I cannot remove istart.webssearches.com (I even tried it's uninstaller but it look suspicious that the uninstaller may cause issues too).

You went through the steps in the link? AdwCleaner especially should do the trick. Much the same, but with a shortcut cleaner
