  1. What is Speed Test Ace?The Malwarebytes research team has determined that Speed Test Ace is a browser NewTab. These so-called "NewTabs" can manipulate your browser(s), for example to change your startpage or searchscopes, so that the affected browser visits their site or one of their choice.This particular one is a newtab hijacker and uses web push notifications.How do I know if my computer is affected by Speed Test Ace?You may see this browser extension:and this display when you are using the extension:these warnings during install:You may see this icon in your browsers menu-bar:this new startpage:and these new settings:How did Speed Test Ace get on my computer?Browser hijackers use different methods for distributing themselves. This particular one was downloaded from the webstore:after a redirect from their website:How do I remove Speed Test Ace?Our program Malwarebytes can detect and remove this potentially unwanted program.You can use their own uninstall instructions first, but I would advise to follow the steps below anyway. Please download Malwarebytes to your desktop. Double-click mb3-setup-consumer-{version}.exe and follow the prompts to install the program. Then click Finish. Once the program has fully updated, select Scan Now on the Dashboard. Or select the Threat Scan from the Scan menu. If another update of the definitions is available, it will be implemented before the rest of the scanning procedure. When the scan is complete, make sure that all Threats are selected, and click Remove Selected. Restart your computer when prompted to do so. Is there anything else I need to do to get rid of Speed Test Ace? No, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware removes Speed Test Ace completely. If you have allowed the notifications you can read here how to disable them. How would the full version of Malwarebytes help protect me?We hope our application and this guide have helped you eradicate this hijacker.The full version of Malwarebytes would have protected you against the Speed Test Ace hijacker. It would have warned you before the application could install itself, giving you a chance to stop it before it became too late.Technical details for expertsPossible signs in FRST logs: CHR NewTab:
