If you like playing online games, you might be interested in having a search engine, such as Search.mygamesxp.com in your browsers, but we must tell you that you could harm your system’s security. If this website comes up as your home page when you launch your browser, it is quite likely that your computer has been infected with a browser hijacker. The simple presence of this hijacker may also mean that there are other malware infections on-board as well. We advise you to refrain from using this search engine anyway because it is totally unreliable and might expose you to unsafe third-party content. In order to protect your PC from the damages this hijacker and all the other “uninvited” infections might cause, we suggest that you remove Search.mygamesxp.com from your computer along with every other threat.
Although the software that sets this search engine as your home page, new tab page, and default search engine, can be installed through mygamesxp.com, lots of computer users complain that Search.mygamesxp.com simply appeared in their browsers without their consent. That is exactly why it is categorized as a browser hijacker because it can make changes to your browser settings without your permission; and that is a serious act against your privacy and should not be tolerated. Only for this reason you should delete Search.mygamesxp.com from your PC right now. But it is not the end of the story, of course; there are more worrisome issues with regard to this hijacker.
Search.mygamesxp.com can be found in freeware bundles together with other malware programs. It is possible to download this version if you visit questionable file-sharing websites. Maybe you want to download a free program and somehow you end up installing a whole pack of third-party stuff. The problem is that among those components you may find several malware infections, too. If you are careful enough during installation, you may be able to opt out of letting these unwanted components on-board. But if you infect your computer with the whole lot, you had better delete Search.mygamesxp.com right away, and then, search for the other threats and eliminate them all.
Search.mygamesxp.com is a search engine that offers a quasi-toolbar with easy access third-party links to gaming sites. There is also a scrolling third-party ad with game-related thumbnails right above the search box. All these third-party services and links might hold some unpleasant surprises for you because by clicking on them you might be redirected to unsafe websites. There, you might be introduced to more corrupted third-party ads and, in the end, you may allow more infections onto your computer or get scammed by schemers. In order to avoid such scenarios, you should delete Search.mygamesxp.com ASAP.
So here is what you need to do if you cannot wait getting rid of this useless browser hijacker. First, you need to uninstall the application itself via Control Panel. Second, you need to remove the browser extensions it installed. However, the uninstaller does that for Internet Explorer, so you need to manually accomplish it in the remaining two major browsers. Please follow our guide below if you need assistance with these steps. But if you want to make perfectly sure that there is no more threat on your PC, we recommend that you run a full system scan to detect any present infection. Once you find out the malware situation, you need to act right away before they expose your operating system to more harm.
