The unreliable search.strtpoint.com is a search tool that can be installed on your browsers silently. According to our researchers who have analyzed the browsers hijacker, it can infect Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome browsers, all at the same time as well. Needless to say, the hijacker should be removed ASAP, because no illegally installed program should be considered to be harmless. There are a few more reasons why you should delete search.strtpoint.com from your browsers, and our removal guide has been set up to help you out. The first thing that we want to point out is that you should not postpone the removal of the hijacker.

Search.strtpoint.com is identical to Search.installmac.com, which is another unreliable browser hijacker that deserves to be deleted. Our malware researchers indicate that both of these search tools are associated with the InstallMac software. InstallMac is introduced to the public as a software distribution and monetization network for the Mac community, when in reality it is just an advertising network controlled by Genieo Innovation Ltd. It is possible that search.strtpoint.com will be offered to you for installation when downloading Genieo software; however, as mentioned before, the search tool could be installed silently as well. In both cases, we recommend removing search.strtpoint.com.

When search.strtpoint.com slithers in, it replaces your home page and changes the default search provider to Start Point search. Some computer users choose to remove and then reinstall their browsers to delete search.strtpoint.com, but there is another way you can remove this browser hijacker. We have no doubt that you should remove the hijacker, because it simply promotes search.yahoo.com, google.com (via News), savefront.com, and other third-party sites. We do not claim that there is something wrong with these sites; however, the browser hijacker redirecting you to them is. In addition, search.strtpoint.com uses unpredictable tracking cookies, and this is just one more reason to delete search.strtpoint.com.

This is the perfect time for you to consider installing the automatic malware removal software, because if it was installed already, you would not have to deal with the removal of intrusive applications. Of course, you can remove search.strtpoint.com manually, but that does not mean that you will be able to delete other threats yourself. You cannot be sure that these threats are not installed, unless you run a malware scanner that thoroughly inspects your operating system. Needless to say, an automated malware remover will have no trouble deleting these threats.
