You need to keep the operating system guarded against max-start.com. If you have discovered that this particular search tool has replaced the regular ones set as the home page and the default search engine on your web browsers, you can be sure that a browser hijacker has been infiltrated. It is known that in some cases the search tool is presented as an optional offer and you can refuse it. Unfortunately, in other cases it comes uninvited and hijacks the browsers without your permission. What is even more upsetting is that if you do not delete max-start.com from the browsers, your virtual security could be jeopardized.

There are plenty of malicious browser hijacker (e.g., buenosearch.com, enhanced-search.com and delta-search.com) which could take over the browsers without your knowledge. In fact, it appears that these may be managed by the same people who are responsible for the attacks of max-start.com. Needless to say, if the search tool has been installed onto the browsers already, we recommend that you do not interact with it. Even though on info.max-start.com/index.html it is claimed that this search engine can provide you with the ultimate online search experience, our researchers warn that this hijacker is primarily used for the promotion of third party products and services.

Banner advertisements pushing you to install media players or update flash and other software should be handled with caution at all times. Paying attention to banner and pop-up advertisements presented via max-start.com is particularly dangerous. The browser hijacker itself is not reliable, and so you should not even think about trusting parties which may be related to it. Due to the same reason, you need to understand that clicking on the sponsored search results could be dangerous as well. You easily could click on links routing to sites which are corrupted, represent virtual scams and malware installers.

The removal of the malicious browser hijacker is divided into two different parts. You need to remove max-start.com related files and components, as well as other programs which may run on the PC without your consent. You also need to delete the search tools which may have been activated illegally as well. Even though highly experienced computer users may be able to perform all of these tasks manually, we suggest that you entrust automatic malware removal software instead. Unfortunately, even the best security tools cannot read your mind and apply the search tools of your preference. This task has to be performed manually.
