- Hijacks homepage
- Changes default search engine
Youfoundit.net is a search engine that looks really decent at first sight; however, it is not. In fact, our specialists even think that it has been developed to drive traffic to particular websites only because its publisher claims that it is a global leader in search engine marketing and web traffic generation. Youfoundit.net will allow you to search for the relevant information. In fact, it will even enable you to search for the information in several different categories, including videos, images, news, and shopping. Unfortunately, there is a risk that some of its results will be modified, which means that you might infect your system with malicious software very quickly. We do not think that you want this to happen, so we suggest that you remove Youfoundit.net as soon as possible. There are many other reliable search providers, so start using one of them instead of Youfoundit.net.
Specialists at pcthreat.com have found that Youfoundit.net is a browser hijacker because it tends to hijack users’ homepages and search engines. By saying “hijack”, we mean that it might change the settings of Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox without asking for permission. If this has already happened to you, you should get rid of this search engine as soon as possible because it might cause harm to your computer. This might happen after you click on any of those sponsored search results. Unfortunately, it is not the only activity of Youfoundit.net. Specialists have noticed that it might also record details about your activities in order to be able to provide you with relevant third-party ads. It is also likely that it will share these details with third-party advertisers, so it might use your Internet connection without your permission too. If you do not like how Youfoundit.net acts, remove it from the system as soon as possible and then set another homepage and search provider.
If you have already noticed the presence of Youfoundit.net, it is very likely that untrustworthy programs are installed on your computer because this browser hijacker travels bundled with a bunch of suspicious programs and they might have been installed on your computer too. Remove them all from your system as soon as possible because they might act in an unwanted way and they might even download other malicious applications on your system. Unfortunately, it might not be very easy to detect those threats, so if you feel that you need some help, you should use a diagnostic scanner. You can check Control Panel too because some programs have uninstalls and you might notice that they are present.
Youfoundit.net itself can be removed rather easily – it will be enough to change the homepage and search engine.

Acquire a security tool and scan your system with it. We recommend using SpyHunter because it will also protect your system from such hijackers as reeturn.com, resultforquery.com, and expressfind.net in the future.
