If the home page in your browsers changes to Search.searchlwa.com, you should know that your computer may have been infiltrated by a browser hijacker. It is also possible that you find home.searchlwa.com in your browsers; so you need to know that this is the very same hijacker. This malware infection offers you a local weather related search page. However, keep in mind that any content coming through this tool may be unreliable. Therefore, if you leave it in your browsers, you will be exposed to it any time you launch your browsers. Since this infection affects Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Google Chrome as well, it is only obvious that it will be hard to avoid it. It is also possible that this threat is not alone when it enters your computer. Therefore, you may be experiencing more browser setting changes, annoying third-party ads, or even slower Internet speed. We advise you to delete Search.searchlwa.com because before long it may put your system security at risk.
You can directly install this browser extension at its official website, latestweatheralerts.com. It is important for us to mention that many users simply rush to click on the “Add now” or “Accept” buttons when a pop-up window appears instead of reading its content carefully. Sometimes you only get an insight this way about the components or changes you are about to install as well as the permissions you give to the tool. We believe that this browser hijacker gets way too many rights, which can easily be exploited by cyber criminals using this application as a conduit. But we do not want to make the creators of this useless extension feel flattered by making you believe that this webpage could generate enough downloads for this tool to make proper money.
Reports show that Search.searchlwa.com mainly shows up in freeware bundles that may contain several malicious software installers. These bundles can enter your computer when you click on unsafe third-party ads while browsing the web. Such ads can be displayed when your computer is infected with adware or when you land on suspicious file-sharing websites. In order to avoid getting infected this way, we suggest that you not visit unfamiliar and questionable websites that promote a lot of third-party ads. But, if you end up with an infectious bundle on your computer, you should delete Search.searchlwa.com right away along with all other infections you may find. If you want to make sure that all threats are identified, we recommend that you use a free online malware scanner.
This questionable browser extension offers you a search engine and a few easy-access links that lead to local weather-related sites. These third-party sites may host third-party content that can be misused by this browser hijacker to display potentially unreliable advertisements. Clicking on such ads can result in your redirection to potentially dangerous websites run by crooks. But it does not get any better when it comes to the search engine itself. Although it seems like a useful tool with the choice it gives to you to choose from three main search providers as the source of your web search, including Google, Bing, and Yahoo, unfortunately, you cannot fully trust the results pages you land on. In fact, this browser hijacker may integrate potentially unreliable advertisements and sponsored links as well. If you engage with such content, you need to know that you may end up on malicious websites. The reason is that these promoted third parties can easily be cyber criminals and obviously their purposes are not the cleanest. If you do not want to let more infections on board or end up without money on your bank account, you should not hesitate to remove Search.searchlwa.com.
In order to clear this mess up, you should reset your browsers so that all unwanted changes are undone. If you need help with this, please use our instructions below. But, if you want to keep your computer tidy and integrated, you need to make sure that there are no other threats lurking around and hiding on your system. You can either try to catch all the “baddies” manually or automatically. The latter is clearly the more effective method. Therefore, we suggest that you install a malware removal tool to detect and eliminate all potential threats and keep your PC safeguarded from future malicious attacks.
