Although it has a skin of one, it does not offer any beneficial services, and that is the ultimate reason to delete it from your web browsers. Unfortunately, there might be more than meets the eye. This suspicious search provider is distributed in a strange way, and its inability to offer you any useful services might hide some things. Our research team has thoroughly analyzed this suspicious search tool, and we have come up with a solution that will help you remove Discoveranswer.com. Although we are sure that you want to get rid of this useless search tool, you might want to read the report to learn more about it first.

Did you expect Discoveranswer.com to offer you great services when you chose to install it onto your browsers? We are sure that you did because no one wants to install useless software. Unfortunately, this search tool is exactly that, useless. You will not be provided with any search results regardless of which search keyword you type in, and the “Top Searches” quick-links do not work either. The strange thing is that we have recently discovered quite a few search tools that are just as worthless. They include discoveranswer.com, lookupopinion.com, and detailexplore.com. Were they created by the same developer? Considering that they look and work in the exact same way, it is very possible that the same party stands behind these search tools. Well, isn’t it strange that someone is creating multiple useless search providers? This certainly is a red flag that might push you to delete Discoveranswer.com.
Considering that Discoveranswer.com and its clones are worthless, it is strange that computer users agree to install them. Was the search tool installed without your permission? Did you install it by accident? Were you tricked into installing it? While it is unlikely that Discoveranswer.com would corrupt your browsers without your permission, you might have acquired it along with other programs. A software bundle is a package of different programs that are carried by the same installer. Legitimate and trustworthy bundles exist, but there are far more malicious and misleading bundles, some of which are even capable of slipping in malware without any warning. Even if you think that the programs bundled with the suspicious search tool are harmless, you should do some investigating. The easiest way to learn whether or not you need to delete malware is to use a legitimate malware scanner. After all, you must have been tricked into thinking that Discoveranswer.com is useful, and it is clear now that it is not.
Once you reset your browsers, you might want to modify homepage and search provider tools. We add steps that will help you both reset the browsers and set the desired settings.
