Tavanero.info (tavanero.info/tavanero/tavanero.php) is a website that looks like a legitimate search tool at first glance. It might seem that it can significantly improve the web browsing experience; however, as research has shown, it is not true at all. The first thing we have noticed when we have opened Tavanero.info is the presence of advertisements on its start page. Later on, we have found out that it shows the modified search results. We have not found this very surprising because it becomes immediately clear when you take a closer look at Tavanero.info that this search tool uses the modified Google search engine. In other words, even though users see Google search results, the developer of Tavanero.info might have modified it to show ads or perform other activities that the original Google search engine does not do. If you do not know why you see Tavanero.info every time you open your browser, it means that it has been, most probably, set without your consent. In such a case, we suggest eliminating Tavanero.info from browsers as soon as possible. If you need some help to get rid of it manually, read this report and then do not hesitate to use the manual removal instructions you find below this article.
We would not be surprised at all if you said that you cannot remember setting Tavanero.info on your browsers because this questionable search engine is known to be able to change the settings of browsers without permission. It has been found that this search tool is capable of doing that because it usually enters computers secretly, or users allow it to make all those modifications accidentally. Of course, Tavanero.info is not the only browser hijacker that exists and spreads through software bundles these days, so you have to be more careful if you do not wish to allow another similar threat to enter your computer. It will not be very easy to prevent untrustworthy software from entering the system. Of course, there are still two things you can do to protect your computer. First, you should install a trustworthy automatic tool on the computer. Second, we highly recommend that you stay away from software that is available for download on P2P or torrent websites because you can download serious malware from there.
