What Does MyStart Do to Your PC?

MyStart is a typical example of adware that, once installed, automatically renders ads in order to generate revenue for its creator. The advertisements appear on your screen like pop-ups or within the websites you are visiting. These ads are usually quite annoying because they show up whether you want them or not. What’s more important, however, is that they are usually linked to potentially infected websites. Clicking on these pop-ups may expose your PC at various risks from the Web.mystartbyincredibar-screenshot

MyStart is also capable of changing your default homepage, altering your browser settings, and sometimes even blocking your access to websites such as Google. The idea behind this adware is to redirect you to advertising content that may appear irrelevant to you and even hazardous. That is how MyStart generates revenue.
In addition, the PUP may even monitor your browsing activities, collect and report them to the same advertising agencies whose ads appear on your screen.

How Does MyStart Enter Your PC?

MyStart enters your PC the way most adware does – via bundling. The free programs you download from the Web are usually bundled with various adware and/or PUPs, and you won’t know about that until you start the freeware’s installation process. However, most users don’t pay attention to the installation process and allow the bundled deal unintentionally. This way, they can easily get infected by a variety of PUPs.
In order to protect your system from unwanted adware, make sure you always watch the entire downloading process; uncheck the “recommended” and default installation options, and choose the “custom” or “advanced” ones. This way you will download only the program you want which will save yourself a whole lot of hassle.

Should You Remove MyStart?

It is best to do so and not because MyStart is that big of a threat. The most it could do is annoy you and possibly expose your system to potential risks from the Web. You should remove MyStart simply because it does not bring any value to you. And you don’t want to clutter your system with programs that are of no use to you.
