eStart Browser Plug-in Information
Moderate threats may profile users online habits or broadcast data back to a server with 'opt-out' permission. In most cases this type of threat is more along the lines of commercial type adware that offer a premium service in exchange for tracking your user online performance.
||EStart, also called BandObjects, modifies the link toolbar in Internet Explorer.
EStart replaces the normal 'Links' toolbar and bookmarks with ones pointed at a directory site called 'TopSites'.
The HTML used for the toolbar may also place a links bar across the bottom of the screen, floating above where the toolbar normally goes.
EStart is bundled with the installer for 'Go MP3', a copied LimeWire by 'Go Software' who seem to be the same people as TopSites. eStart gets installed even if the main program install is cancelled.
The software opens a sidebar with 'related' links when a targeted keyword is spotted in a link clicked or terms entered into a form.
