2
  • Its official web site reveals that WEB-START.ORG
    is a legitimate browser add-on that enhances you
    web browsing experience by improving the outcome
    of online search results. Like known search
    engine as Google and Bing, WEB-START.ORG employs
    simple and clean user interface. Therefore, many
    computer users are deceived with this unwanted
    search engine.

3
  • It does not take much time before user begins to
    realize that WEB-START.ORG is solely made to
    generate online revenue. It is a working search
    engine, no question about that. But the results
    provided by this search is highly risky.
    Inclusions of paid links on result page mean to
    earn profit while endangering users computer. It
    is through this paid links that malware makers
    were able to spread their products quickly and
    effectively.

4
  • Recent research uncovers that downloading and
    installing dubious freeware, particularly Your
    Instant Converter is the main cause for
    WEB-START.ORG infection. Publishers are utilizing
    deceitful techniques, promoting their program as
    worthy tool, but once installed, this application
    never delivers and instead commence the
    unexpected. This adware shows dominance by
    controlling the browsers home page and search
    engine. Both are set to utilize WEB-START.ORG,
    overriding your default setup.

5
  • If WEB-START.ORG occupies start-up page, home
    page, or new tab of your browser, there is a
    reason to believe that adware may have infected
    the computer. This invasion can be traced to
    installation of shareware, freeware, or
    third-party application. You may not know it, but
    WEB-START.ORG is packed to free programs that are
    hosted on various web sites. Bundling it to
    download manager, free games, tools, and fake
    software update is another trick to deploy
    WEB-START.ORG quickly.

6
  • This hijacker do not come alone. Aside from the
    mentioned program, toolbars and new tab arrives
    with it too. As you can notice, WEB-START.ORG and
    company occupy almost every function on the
    browser. This was done on purpose. Author of this
    adware mean to convince user to use its search
    engine and other features habitually. In return,
    WEB-START.ORG generates revenue through
    advertisements and promotion that it delivers.

7
  • With given annoyances and troubles, some user
    believes that WEB-START.ORG is a virus.
    Technically, it is under the category of Adware
    or Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP). Less
    hazardous and does not spread on its own. It
    needs users intervention to be able to install
    components on the browser. You may not see it
    coming because it conceals itself to another
    software installation.
