What is iStartSurf?
iStartSurf.com is a website of a browser hijacker, which is usually set as default if PC is infected with it. It is known to automatically load with your browser and serve you with numerous advertisements and pop-ups while you browse the Internet. The virus is typically spread with many small freeware or shareware applications found online. The trick is that it is usually set to install by default, and most people are unwillingly installing the hijacker along with the app they really want to have installed.
The hijacker affects most modern browsers including Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. Even if it may have an uninstaller, iStartSurf is never completely removed and may reappear after a while. We highly recommend that you get rid of iStartSurf.com and all its files as soon as possible because your personal data may be at risk, not to mention reduced peformance of your browser and increased likelihood of getting potential infections.
