- Installs itself without permissions
- Hijacks homepage
The disturbing search tool search.findeer.com is a browser hijacker which is usually associated to the potentially unwanted program Offertz available at shopping.offertz.com. Even though the search tool is not represented as a browser hijacker in this particular case, it could take over the browsers without permission if it came bundled with other unreliable software. Either way, we suggest immediate search.findeer.com removal because this search tool is not as reliable as it may appear to be at first.
We do not list search.findeer.com as a browser hijacker in those cases when the home page modifications are optional and represented in an obvious manner. If you know little about the search tool and you realize that there is a chance that you will need to delete it in the future, you should refrain from installing it altogether. As mentioned before, we recommend having search.findeer.com deleted if this search tool has been installed already. The main reason we recommend the removal is the uselessness of the tool.
If you think that search.findeer.com is a reliable and powerful search engine, you are not exactly right. It has been discovered that despite presenting a number of different search tools, search.findeer.com only provides one active tool – Web search. Unfortunately, the search tool represents sponsored links, and these are identified as the vulnerability of your virtual security. Our researchers rush users to delete the search engine because it presents links which may route you to unreliable sites. Furthermore, the strange search engine provides links to Google search tools, which is quite odd. If you trust Google search, you should remove the questionable search tool and replace it with the trusted google.com.
In case search.findeer.com is running on the PC with the potentially unwanted program Offertz, you can expect the search results to be presented using the information collected by the PUP. Your browsing history recorded by the PUP could be used to present more alluring links to ensure the necessary interaction. In fact, even if you have not agreed with the home page changes, it is possible that certain offers by Offertz will route you to the search engine. Due to this, you shoukd delete Offertz and remove search.findeer.com.
Even though in most cases you will discover automatic search.findeer.com removal right after you delete the potentially unwanted program Offertz, in some cases the removal of the undesirable search tool may be more complicated. Whether you have installed the search provider with the PUP or other undesirable software, we recommend that you complete the manual removal guides and install a reputable automatic malware remover to eliminate any remaining infections and guard the security of the system.
