MyStart by Incredimail involves a web browser toolbar and a browser hijacker that forces computer users to visit MyStart.Incredimail.com. ESG security researchers have observed variants of this scam with the same process, but using an 'incredibar' domain rather than 'incredimail'. These kinds of browser redirects pose a threat to a computer. Because of this, any MyStart by Incredimail redirects should be treated as symptoms of an infection that should be treated with a reliable, fully-dated anti-malware program.
MyStart by Incredimail is not only a browser toolbar, but a search engine that has a similar design to the popular Google website. It is important to note that any other similarities between MyStart by Incredimail and Google is merely superficial. While Google is a reliable search engine, MyStart by Incredimail has been linked to browser redirects.
The symptoms associated with MyStart by Incredimail browser redirects are very similar to a well known browser hijacker commonly described as the 'Google Redirect Virus'. It receives this name because the Google Redirect Virus forces the infected web browser to visit a particular website after accomplishing an online search on Google or another popular online search engine. Because of this, it is imperative to scan your computer for malware, rather than restricting removal only to your web browser.
