What does it do

You possibly got the browser redirect was via freeware installation. This is possibly just a case of inattentiveness, and you did not intentionally install it. The reason this method is successful is because users are negligent when installing applications, which means they miss all indications that something added. Those offers will be hidden during installation, and if you’re not paying attention, you will not see them, which means their installation will be allowed. Default mode will conceal the offers, and if you still select to use them, you could contaminate your machine with all types of unwanted items. Unchecking those offers is essential, but they’ll only be apparent in Advanced (Custom) mode. You’re suggested to deselect all the items. And until you do, don’t continue with the free application installation. Dealing with these infections can be irritating so you would do yourself a great favor by initially stopping them. You also need to stop downloading from questionable websites, and instead, opt for official/legitimate web pages/stores.

If a browser hijacker is installed, it’s doubtful you wouldn’t see. Your browser’s settings will be changed, the hijacker setting a strange website as your homepage, new tabs and search engine, and it will do that without your explicit permission. Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox will be among the browsers affected. The page will load every time you launch your browser, and this will continue until you erase Score-Stars.com from your operating system. Trying to change the settings back would a wild-goose chase because the browser redirect will alter them again. Redirect viruses also alter default search engines, so don’t be surprised if when you look for something via browser address bar, a strange website will load. Because the infection is aiming to redirect you, it is likely you’ll run into advertisement links in the results. Those reroutes are happening because hijackers intend to help certain site owners make more profit by increasing their traffic. Owners will be able to earn more profit when there is more traffic as more users will probably engage with adverts. They occasionally have little to do with what you were looking for, so you get little from those pages. Some of the results might look real in the beginning but if you are attentive, you ought to be able to differentiate them. Some of those websites could even be malware-ridden. The redirect virus will also oversee your Internet browsing, gathering various information about your browsing activity. You need to find out if unfamiliar third-parties will also get access to the data, who may use it to create adverts. If not, the browser hijacker may use it to make the sponsored content more relevant. We highly recommend you uninstall Score-Stars.com, for reasons we noted above.
