- Hijacks homepage
- Changes default search engine
Loadstart.biz is not a search tool that will help you find the information you are looking for quicker or enhance your web browsing experience in any way because it is not a legitimate search provider even though it is presented as one to users. Specialists at pcthreat.com better know this website as a browser hijacker because they often find it set as a homepage, default search tool, or a New Tab page. In fact, not all the users see it because their main browsers’ settings have been altered. This search tool might hijack browsers’ shortcuts to open Loadstart.biz for users automatically too. No matter why you see this dubious search tool set on your browsers, you must delete it from them all as soon as possible because this website is not what it claims to be. We can assure you that it is not a reputable search provider. On top of that, the major flaws it has outweigh its advantages, so its deletion must be your top priority now. If you do not do anything about its presence on your web browsers, some issues might arise. Let’s talk about them in detail in the paragraphs that follow.
Loadstart.biz is not a very prevalent infection; however, according to specialists at pcthreat.com, it should be spreading in India and the Middle East region mainly. Without a doubt, it might still manage to enter your computer illegally and change all your browsers’ settings. It is spread in bundled malicious installers mainly, so users usually find a new search tool on their browsers after downloading software from P2P pages. What is more, you might find your browsers’ settings altered after clicking on a malicious advertisement. Such ads are usually found on third-party pages, but you might see them opened on your screen too if an untrustworthy application, e.g. an ad-supported program is installed on your computer. It is one of the hardest jobs to protect the system from undesirable software and make sure that any browser hijacker cannot alter browsers’ settings, so we suggest acquiring a security application instead of trying to protect your PC from malware alone.
Check all your browsers’ shortcuts and remove Loadstart.biz if you see it in the Target line. Then, reset your browsers to default settings in order not to see it opened on the screen again. If it happens that you still see this dubious search tool on all your web browsers after resetting them, you should scan the system with an automated scanner, such as SpyHunter. A reputable scanner will fully delete the annoying browser hijacker and undo all the modifications it has made. Last but not least, all potential threats will be deleted from your PC too if they have sneaked onto your system in a bundle with Loadstart.biz.
