If you have discovered that Websearch.pu-results.info has replaced your regular Chrome, Firefox or IE home page and default search provider, there is no doubt that a browser hijacker has found a way into your computer. The clandestine infection is set to travel bundled with other software, like Optimizer Pro, EZDownloader, GreatSaver or Search-NewTab because no one in their right mind would choose this unreliable search engine voluntarily. First of all, the hijacker provides google.com/search results, which indicates that there is no point in using it at all. Furthermore, the unreliable search tool could be followed by irritating online advertisements which you may find extremely difficult to delete. This is why getting Websearch.pu-results.info removed from your operating Windows system is highly important.

Our researchers have discovered a number of malicious browser hijackers which work and look just like Websearch.pu-results.info. The malign Websearch.good-results.info, Websearch.searchere.info, Websearch.pur-esult.info, and other hijackers are just as clandestine and intrusive, which is why getting these removed from your web browsers is recommended as well. Note that the longer you continue running and using the unreliable search tool, the more information its developers will be able to accumulate. Do you want unreliable parties to learn your browsing habits and preferences? Even if such information does not reveal any sensitive information, it certainly could help online advertisers to present you with more alluring offers, deals and suggestions. Needless to say, this should be beneficial to you personally; however, if schemers were involved, the interesting adverts could act as bait to trick you into clicking on corrupted links.

We strongly recommend that you delete Websearch.pu-results.info home page and remove WebSearch search provider from the affected Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers. These search tools are not reliable and cannot serve you in a beneficial manner, which is why running them is not what you should do. Please follow the manual removal instructions below to delete the undesirable search tools from your web browsers. We recommend using SpyHunter’s scanner to inspect the computer and make sure that it is safe to run. This service is free of charge, so you should have no hesitations about installing the tool.

If you are not an experienced Windows user and you are not sure how to protect your personal computer against attacking malware, we advise installing authentic security software which could catch and delete running infections automatically.
