My Rally io: How To Remove It Completely From Chrome Browser

My Rally io is the most annoying adware I have ever seen. Not as much as Babylon toolbar but definitely more stubborn. It installed a myrally toolbar, changed browser homepage, default search engine and sitting up as an useless application in program list. Here’s how I removed MyRally io completely.

1. Uninstall MyRally Program

Go to Control Panel >> Programs and Features; Select My Rally and uninstall it.

2. Remove My Rally Search Engine

Click on Chrome Settings icon (3 horizontal lines besides address bar, initially a wrench) and here, change the Search Engine to Google. Click on Manage Search engine button and delete My Rally.

Homepage or Specific page on startup can be changed easily (if you know) but when My Rally is installed, you can’t. That option suddenly gives an error saying “Some Settings are managed by your Administrator”.

3. Fix “Some Settings are managed by Administrator in Chrome”

I was seeing this error for the first time in Chrome settings even though I am logged in to Windows as Administrator. Tried running Chrome as Administrator but didn’t help.

This problem is actually because of a registry key.

Press Win+R key which opens Run window. Type regedit here and press Enter key.

Now, navigate to-  HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Policies\Google\Chrome\RestoreOnStartupURLs

On the right side, find a key which has value and delete it.

Just restarted Chrome browser and this worked fine for me. Let me know if the same procedure worked for you or faced any problem in any of the steps.

    Hi Sweta, You have followed only Step 1 and 2. You need to make a small change in Windows registry which is described in step 3. Follow it and you will be able to change the default homepage.

    well.. navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Policies\Google\Chrome\ On the right hand side, modify the “RestoreOnStartup” value to “0”. you’ll be able to modify the startup after that.

oh one more thing the registry didn’t have \RestoreOnStartupURLs . so i did a manual search for the and deleted it.
I am still seeing the rally page when ever i start chrome …. if u have any solutions for this please update .
