When PC security researchers hear the word 'toolbar', red flags immediately pop-up. This is because many malware infections – especially browser hijackers – will prompt their victims to install a malicious toolbar for their web browser. MyStart.Incredibar.com is a fake search engine which plagiarizes various elements of the Google website. This dangerous website will also be associated with a dangerous toolbar that is actually part of the attack pattern of malware associated with MyStart.Incredibar.com. ESG security researchers strongly advise that computer users stay away from the MyStart.Incredibar.com web page and avoid its associated toolbar. Contact with these two will almost certainly indicate a severe malware infection on your computer system. Any contact with MyStart.Incredibar.com should be followed with a full, thorough scan of your hard drives.
MyStart.Incredibar.com is Part of a Well-Known Online Scam
One of the most common online scams consists of setting up fake search engines that are designed to display nothing but advertisements. Computer users carrying out searches on these malicious websites will find that results are irrelevant to their search, composed of little more than advertisements for dodgy online websites and companies promoting known online scams (such as rogue anti-virus applications or pharmaceuticals of doubtful origin). If the scam stopped there, MyStart.Incredibar.com would be a relatively benign website. However, criminals use a browser hijacker to take over the victim's computer system, forcing it to visit MyStart.Incredibar.com repeatedly. This translates into more page hits for their fake search engine, which in turn means that their advertising profit is artificially boosted.
Malware Related to MyStart.Incredibar.com Takes over Your Computer
Browser hijackers associated with MyStart.Incredibar.com are not limited to a single web browser. Rather, they fundamentally affect how your computer system connects to the Internet. This means that reinstalling your web browser will do nothing to fix the problem. Computers affected with MyStart.Incredibar.com-related malware will also find that the MyStart.Incredibar.com toolbar shows up on web browsers and critical settings (such as the browser's homepage and security preferences) have been changed. Because of this, ESG security researchers advise using a legitimate anti-virus program to hunt down the source of redirects to the MyStart.Incredibar.com website. Starting up in Safe Mode or from an external drive is recommended.
