There are many ways for Loadstart.biz to enter your computer. Perhaps you do not even realize that because this domain does not look like a very big threat. However, the address we use as our main keyword belongs to a browser hijacker, and if suddenly you find it that you get redirected to Loadstart.biz very often, it is a clear sign that your browser’s safety has been compromised. You need to remove this hijacker from your system, and then do everything in your power to protect your PC from similar intruders. They could be a lot closer to you thank you think.
This browser hijacker comes from the same family as Loadstart.net, foryourweb.net, your-home-page.net, safebrowsing.biz, safesurfs.com, and many other intruders from the same group. The people behind these programs clearly do not care too much about the quality of their products. They rely on the sheer number of these browser hijackers, trying to reach their main aim. The goal of the people behind these programs is usually money. Luckily, Loadstart.biz will not steal your credit card information because browser hijackers usually employ the pay-per-click system to make a monetary profit. Nevertheless, it could still redirect you to annoying websites that could be associated with severe computer security threats.
The research we have suggests that Loadstart.biz mostly affects users in the Middle East countries and India. This allows us to assume that the browser hijacker probably spreads through file-sharing websites that are based in the said countries. On the other hand, it is more than obvious that security threats do not recognize national borders, and you could get infected with Loadstart.biz no matter where you live. Thus, to avoid such programs, you should download programs only from their official websites. Stay away from file-sharing websites if you do not know who supplies them with the third-party installers. Also, be careful when you access online gaming sites and other pages that are bound to contain a lot of third-party content.
Once the browser hijacker enters your system, it will modify your shortcut target to Loadstart.biz. Thus, even if you restore your browser settings to default, your default homepage would still remain the same, set by the browser hijacker. Eventually, the program will collect information on your web browsing habits, and it will use that information to display custom commercial advertisements whenever you browse the web. Most of these advertisements will be more annoying than dangerous, but you cannot rule out the possibility that some might be embedded with malicious links that lead to malware-related websites.
Hence, if you are not careful, you could accidentally get infected with malware, too. Do yourself a favor and remove Loadstart.biz today.
