There is a new browser hijacker which you need to guard your browsers against. Start.mysearchs.com is a real threat and it can attack without any warning. In fact, our researchers have discovered that the application could take over Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome browsers without permission. Needless to say, if reliable security software was active on the system, the hijacker would be blocked and its files would be removed in time.

We recommend that you delete Start.mysearchs.com and then remove the programs which are in any way linked to the hijacker.
The developer of Start.mysearchs.com is very well known to our malware researchers. Babylon Ltd is responsible for Babylon Toolbar, Delta-Search.com, isearch.babylon.com, and other unreliable software which deserve removal. Of course, the bad reputation of the hijacker’s developers has little to do with the activity of the infection. Once it takes over the browsers and replaces the regular search tools, you will have no other choice but to use Start.mysearchs.com as a primary search tool. Some users do not rush to delete the search tool because it does not look unreliable. In fact, the search results represented by the hijacker are not even hijacked by ads or sponsored links.
Start.mysearchs.com represents Web, Images and Videos searches; however, if you click the Top sites button placed next to these search tools, you will be presented with hundreds of links to sites listed under different categories, like Games, Sports or Email. Clicking on third-party links may be dangerous; however, you have to be most careful about the banner advertisements which Start.mysearchs.com may present. You also have to be careful with less noticeable elements of the hijacker – tracking cookies and additionally installed adware helpers (e.g. Pay By Ads). Most computer users remove undesirable search tools without even thinking that they need to delete components associated to the hijacker or remove the additionally installed malware.
Many choose to remove Start.mysearchs.com from the browsers manually; however, instead of modifying unreliable settings, all you need to do is delete the hijacker from the computer. Even though it is surprising, it is possible to delete Start.mysearchs.com from the system manually. Unfortunately, the infections which could have been installed with the hijacker could be much more complicated. What should you do about third-party infections running on the PC?
