What is Loadstart.biz?

Loadstart.biz is a search tool that might be set on all your browsers (it is compatible with all popular browsers, including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox) without your permission. It usually replaces users’ homepages, default search tools, and New Tab pages; however, it might hijack all browsers’ shortcuts instead in order to automatically open Loadstart.biz for users when they open any of their browsers. It is the main reason it has been classified as a browser hijacker. If this dubious search tool ever changes your browsers’ settings, delete it no matter how it has managed to appear on your web browsers. If it is loaded for you because the Target line of your browsers’ shortcuts has been altered, you will need to fix those affected shortcuts first because it will revive again.

What does Loadstart.biz do?

Not all the users immediately notice that a new website is opened for them when they launch any of their web browsers because it does not differ from other reputable search tools at first glance. There is a search box in the middle of the page, and Loadstart.biz even contains small squares with certain websites below the search box. These are the so-called quick-access buttons which enable users to quickly open certain websites, e.g. Facebook, Amazon, Instagram, Twitter, eBay, Pinterest, and YouTube. Some users find this feature useful, so they do not see a reason why they should go to uninstall Loadstart.biz from browsers. It is not the only reason so many users believe that it is a legitimate search provider. Research has revealed that it displays Google search results, which immediately enhances its credibility. Unfortunately, these search results are still not perfect. Loadstart.biz redirects searches through several domains before displaying Google search results to users, so there is a huge possibility that users will see advertisements. These ads are links promoting certain third-party pages, so you will not find any information based on your search query if you click on them and end up on those promoted web pages. To be frank, you might even infect your computer with malicious software if you continue using this search tool as a default search provider. You might encounter untrustworthy software if you are ever taken to third-party pages promoting them. What else our specialists have found quite suspicious about Loadstart.biz is that it does not have EULA, Privacy Policy, and it is impossible to find anything about its developer.

Where does Loadstart.biz come from?

Loadstart.biz is a typical browser hijacker, so it enters computers illegally and then makes modifications. You might find it set as your homepage, default search tool, and a New Tab page or it might hijack your browsers’ shortcuts to be opened automatically to users. Most commonly, browser hijackers are spread in malicious software bundles, so if you remember downloading an application from a file-sharing or another third-party website recently, it does not surprise us at all that your browsers’ settings have been changed. A bunch of similar browser hijackers are distributed using the same methods, e.g. your-home-page.net, trustedsurf.com, yourwebing.net, and trustedstart.net, so you might find your browsers’ settings altered again in the future if you do not do anything to fix security loopholes on your computer. Security experts at anti-spyware-101.com say that users do not need a bunch of fancy tools to ensure the maximum system’s protection. They need to have only one reputable security application enabled on their computers to prevent malware from sneaking onto their computers secretly.
