This is how Start Savin is promoted at startsavin.com. It is supposed to be the main homepage for the application, and the main source of distribution. However, despite the fact that users are informed about the application on the website, the direct download link for the program does not work. Therefore, we can make an assumption that rather than being distributed out the in the open, Start Savin gets bundled with freeware when you download and install new applications from third party file hosting websites. It also means that you are the one who installs Start Savin onto your computer, whether you are aware of that or not.
When this application gets installed on your computer, it adds an extension to your default browser. Your homepage or search engine settings do not get affected. You may not notice anything different for a time being, as the application will take its time collecting data on your web browsing habits. It does so in order to “find out” what you search for online, and what interests you. Once your online profiling is complete, you will notice a lot of commercial pop-ups and other types of ads on online shopping malls. These ads will be related to your usual likes and preferences thus increasing the possibility that you will click them.
Needless to say, that you should never click any kind of ad displayed by Start Savin. We cannot guarantee that the pop-ups displayed by this application are absolutely safe. For all its worth, you might get exposed to potentially malicious content, because Start Savin does not review what kind of links get embedded into its adds. Not to mention that you may also have other potentially unwanted applications on your computer that arrived along with Start Savin.
Remove Start Savin manually, and then scan your computer with a licensed antimalware tool to make sure that all the unwanted applications are deleted and your PC is absolutely safe.
