If you are looking for a better way to stream movies within your web browser, you should stay away from a program called MyMovie Start. Even though it might seem tempting to download it as it is advertised as a tool that should present you with instant access to sites with a large selection of movies to stream, you should know that it does not act in such a way. In fact, due to its invasive functionality malware, researchers at our internal labs have dubbed this program as one more browser hijacker, which should not be active on your personal computer. Like any other devious program of this classification, it can make undesirable changes to your web browser's default settings without any authorization or notification. If that was not enough, you should know that MyMovie Start could prove to be the primary reason your PC might be exposed to suspicious web content. To remove this hijacker completely, make sure to use detailed instructions that we provide below.

In its basic functionality, MyMovie Start does not differ all that much from other hijackers that are active nowadays. Right after it enters your operating system, it will install a suspicious third-party browser extension. This plug-in is essential to the overall functionality of this hijacker since it triggers the changes of your web browser's default settings and keeps them in-tact. The main alterations imposed by this devious piece of software are of your default home page and new tab page. While it might not seem like a big deal, you should know that having these modifications in place will make surfing the web a much more bothersome experience. That is so because you will have no choice whatsoever but to start every single online session on a suspicious third-party website. The same will happen in regards to your new tab page as you will be presented with a suspicious site instead of a blank page that you are used to. In addition to that our research team has discovered that this devious hijacker could also establish lasting connectivity to an adware server and so flood your web browser with undesirable third-party web content. Usually, such content manifests as dubious ads, pop-ups, and coupons. It goes without saying that such functionality of MyMovie Start cannot be tolerated. To surf the web the way you are used to once again, make sure to get rid of this hijacker in its entirety. Do so by following the instructions that we provide below.

Unfortunately, the worst thing about MyMovie Start is not that it is annoying and invasive. As it turns out this browser hijacker could be quite dangerous. In some instances, using the search box within the newly appointed homepage could lead you to questionable and potentially dangerous websites. This could happen because some of the result provided by the devious search engine could host redirect links. If you happen to click on such a link, there is a chance that you could end up on a website that might be running an arbitrary code execution exploit; just entering such a website could be enough to get your PC infected with some unknown malicious program. In other cases you could find yourself on fake online shops, which are created by cyber criminals for a single reason - to steal your credit card data. It goes without saying that entering any of these web pages might have detrimental outcomes. It is also important to note that this hijacker could also be spread via bundled installers. This means that it might come along with other suspicious programs. Thus, if you already have it active on your PC, we advise you to check your operating system for other suspicious programs. It should be more than obvious why a complete removal of MyMovie Start is essential.

Make sure not to delay the procedure as keeping this hijacker active on your PC could have detrimental outcomes. Follow the instructions with care and once you are done with them, make sure to check your computer for potential traces linked to MyMovie Start. This is important since its leftovers could act in a devious manner. In certain instances they could be more than enough for this hijacker to continue its functionality; in other situations, traces could be used to silently restore MyMovie Start.
