I am having troubles in my online session due to Uportal. I can't understand why it appears as my default homepage. Even I tried to change the settings according to my choice but error messages appeared on the screen that I am not authorized to perform this activity. It has become almost impossible for me to perform any task normally. How can I remove Uportal permanently from the system? What can I do to protect my system from the future attacks of harmful threats? All the suggestions will be highly appreciated.
