istartsurf.com

If you have opened your Internet Explorer, Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox browser and noticed that your homepage and search engine have been replaced by istartsurf.com without your permission, you should know that a browser hijacker has entered your system. Unfortunately, istartsurf.com browser hijacker will not only change the settings of your browser, but also modify the Target line, which means that it will revive every time you try to delete it from the system. In this sense, istartsurf.com is very similar to other browser hijackers that belong to Qone8 family, for instance, V9.com, Omiga-plus.com, Webssearches.com, and the like.
