Enhanced-search.com is a browser hijacker which can take over the web browsers without your permission. The malicious hijacker can change the Home Page and the default search provider on your Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers. Since these are the most popular browsers, there is a great chance that many computer users are now worried about the suspicious infection. It is quite possible that the hijacker was hidden within a bundled download. It is also possible that you have accepted the installation of this hijacker without even realizing how unreliable it is. All in all, we recommend that you remove Enhanced-search.com hijacker from the browsers right away.
Some computer users discover that the display of Enhanced-search.com looks somewhat similar to the old-fashioned display of google.com. The search tool offers a search box in the center and a doodle of the day above. Right below you can find a drop-down menu allowing you to change the language. English, Spanish, Japanese and Turkish are few of the available options. Furthermore, the black menu bar at the top allows switching search tools, so that you could find Web, Images or Videos search results corresponding to your search queries. The only visible difference between Enhanced-search.com and google.com is the representation of unreliable banner ads which are meant to push you into visiting third party websites.
Most browser hijackers, including rocket-find.com, start.mysearchdial.com or sweet-page.com, are meant to push you into using questionable services. Enhanced-search.com hijacker has been created to promote third party advertisements, most of which will be served by ams1.ib.adnxs.com advertising domain. Note that the promoted ads are managed by unfamiliar third parties, and so clicking on them could easily be dangerous. If schemers were responsible for some of the flashy banner ads, clicking on them could lead you to sites related to malware, fake purchase offers and virtual identity theft.
It is clear that trusting Enhanced-search.com is not a good idea. Unfortunately, it may be difficult to remove this malicious hijacker after it takes over the web browsers. Just like qvo6, portaldosites, qone8 and other infamous browser hijackers, this one can modify the properties of the affected browser shortcuts. Due to this you may discover that the undesirable search tools are restored even after you remove them.
