- Hijacks homepage
- Changes default search engine
If we have to name one completely useless search tool, we choose Opinionfind.com. The interface is promising, but nothing exciting happens when you enter the preferred search query into the search box. Unfortunately, no search results are found, and that might be most disappointing for those users who install this search tool themselves hoping it to work in a beneficial manner. The most surprising thing is that this strange search tool comes from a group of search tools that are just as useless, including Discoveranswer.com and Searchbent.com. We have already reviewed these “search engines” on this site, and you can find the articles using the search box on the top-right of the page. Of course, there is nothing special about this particular search tool, and it is just as useless as all other clones that belong to the same family. If you are curious about this piece of software, and you want to learn how to delete it, this is the article you need to read. Note that the Opinionfind.com removal guide is found at the bottom.
Did you replace your old homepage with Opinionfind.com or did it hijack your browser? We do not have information about this search tool hijacking browsers, but everything is possible, especially when it comes to suspicious, unreliable software. Overall, if your browsers were corrupted, the chances are that you have accidentally let Opinionfind.com in by executing a software bundle. Whether the search tool is bundled with one program or a bunch of different programs, you have to research every single one of them. If you had not done it before installing, you must do it now, and we recommend using a legitimate malware scanner because it can locate silent threats as well, as well as malware that uses the disguises of trustworthy-looking programs. Obviously, if your chosen scanner discovers malware, you should rush to delete it from your operating system. The scanner should also identify the suspicious search tool as a potential threat. Though we do not classify it as a malicious infection, it certainly is suspicious, and, according to our malware research team, it could put your virtual security at risk.
If you change the homepage and clear browsing data as shown in the instructions below, you should be able to delete Opinionfind.com completely. Obviously, you will not have your operating system cleaned just by following these steps. Considering that much more aggressive and complex infections might be active on your PC, you should consider using automated anti-malware software to inspect your operating system and eliminate the existing threats. If you are hesitant about investing in this software, think about the future. By installing this software, you ensure full-time protection. Now, if you do not install it, you will have to take care of your operating system’s protection yourself, and that is extremely hard to do with all kinds of malicious threats hiding behind harmless-looking spam emails, downloads, links, etc. Keep in mind that if you do not protect your PC now, you might face a serious threat very soon.
