- Hijacks homepage
- Changes default search engine
search.searchonme.com is the newest search engine that belongs to the so-called Websearch family. This search engine usually places a user’s default homepage and search engine because their systems are unprotected and there are many security loopholes. If this search engine has already made the changes, we recommend that you remove search.searchonme.com from your Internet Explorer, Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox very quickly. The main reason why we suggest doing that is the fact that you might infect your system with malicious software if you use search.searchonme.com on a daily basis.
search.searchonme.com does not differ from other reliable search engines at first sight because it also allows users to search for the information.

It has been observed that users who click on ads placed on the startup page of search.searchonme.com infect their systems more quickly if compared to those who do not use search.searchonme.com at all.
