DigStar Search was named as a 'virus' by many security researchers. In reality, it's far from this name. It's just an ordinary search site, which is distributed using some unfair distribution techniques. You may be tricked into setting DigStar.com as your start page, default search engine and new tab page when downloading freeware on your computer. If you didn't pay enough attention to its installation process, now you may think that DigStar Search infiltrated your machine. We recommend using more reputable search sites, such as Google or Yahoo, when searching the web. However, you can use this search engine if you don't mind receiving commercial pop-up ads from time to time.
