Whenever you are about to download a program or a file from a third-party distributor, you have to be absolutely sure that there are no unnecessary applications bundled with the program you download. Otherwise, you will end up with Websearch.allsearches.info on your computer. It is a browser hijacker that changes your browser settings without your permission. It is more annoying than dangerous, but it is important that you remove Websearch.allsearches.info from the system as soon as possible. Otherwise, you will most likely get exposed to potentially corrupted content via constant redirections.
Websearch.allsearches.info is one of the many browser hijackers in the line.

This browser hijacker also installs an extension on your default browser (Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome or Internet Explorer). This extension might be called SearchNewTab or MySearch.
