MyPlayCity.com

MyPlayCity.com is a flash games website which can be the culprit of the changes made on your browsers. If this website or start.myplaycity.com has become your home page and search provider, it suggests that you have installed a game or a toolbar from this website or you have accidentally installed an add-on alongside some other application to which it has been bundled.

Due to the changes of the browsing settings, including Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox, MyPlayCity.com is regarded as a browser hijacker even thought while running the installer of a game or the browser, which can be downloaded from myplacecity.com/fr/toolbar/, the user can uncheck two boxes in order not to have the browsers modified:

Set MyPlayCity.com as my homepage in IE, FF, Opera and Chrome

Add MyPlayCity.com as a search provider in IE, FF, Opera and Chrome

If you were provided with these options and decided to agree to the conditions, you will find your home page and search providers changed.

If you know how to check your browser settings, do not get surprised when you cannot find anything related to MyPlayCity.com. In order to restore the default settings, it is necessary to uninstall the program, be it the toolbar or a game from the website in question, and alter the settings of the browsers afterwards.

We recommend you delete the browser hijacker Start.MyPlayCity.com from your PC so that you do not get directed to dubious websites that may contain computer infections. As for the infections, it is also important to bear in mind that the website MyPlayCity.com contains various ads that offers to download third-party freeware. Do not click on those ads but if you did, do not download the applications promoted so as not to download a Trojan horse or any other dangerous computer infection.
