Staying away from unknown websites means that you will be able to avoid the likes of Websearch.awsomesearchs.info. It is a browser hijacker from the same group as Websearch.exitingsearch.info or websearch.toolksearchbook.info. The main reason why your browser settings get modified is money, because Websearch.awsomesearchs.info is created to redirect you to affiliated commercial websites. If you want to stay clear from shady cyber practices, you ought to remove Websearch.awsomesearchs.info from your computer, restore your browser settings and then uninstall all the other potentially unwanted applications that are bound to be hiding in the depths of your system.
The reason, why we mention other third party applications, is that Websearch.awsomesearchs.info cannot be downloaded directly anywhere. It means that this browser hijacker comes bundled with additional software. It is usually distributed via fake notifications and commercial advertisements that offer to download flash player updates and Java plug-in upgrades. However, once you click the Install button, you will initiate an automatic download and installation of adware applications that will have Websearch.awsomesearchs.info as part of their setup.
Websearch.awsomesearchs.info does not come alone as well. This browser hijacker installs SearchNewTab browser extension that can be installed onto your PC under a list of random names, including SNT, SnT, SearCHNewwTab, SNNT, SeeArch--NewTaab and many others. Supposedly, both the search engine and the tab have been developed to improve your online search experience, but we regret to inform you that Websearch.awsomesearchs.info displays custom search results that redirect you to affiliated websites. For example, it may redirect you to search.coupons-bar.com that only displays even more commercial content.
Even if you think that Websearch.awsomesearchs.info redirects you to Google.com (it happens when you perform a search query on an infected computer), the browser hijacker can still embed custom search results within Google search results. Not to mention that by performing a web search you allow Websearch.awsomesearchs.info to collect data on your web browsing habits. When the hijacker processes the collected data it can direct a custom flow of commercial advertisements at you, thus increasing the possibility that you will click any of the pop-ups.
Needless to say, that clicking commercial pop-ups is a bad idea and you should never do that. In fact, you need to restore your browser settings and remove Websearch.awsomesearchs.info immediately if you want to avoid serious computer security issues.
After manual removal you should also consider scanning your computer with SpyHunter free scanner in search for other unwanted applications.
