- Hijacks homepage
- Changes default search engine
Search.easyvideoconverteraccess.com can show up in your Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers as your new home page, new tab page, or even your default search engine after a browser hijacker manages to infiltrate your system. This hijacker may come on board in questionable ways; therefore, you may not even know about its presence or recall installing it. You should understand that this infection may appear to you as innocent but it can still put your system security at risk by showing you questionable third-party web content. This browser hijacker was mainly created to generate income through promoting third parties, which are not always reliable, of course. If you do not want to let more infections onto your system or be scammed by cyber criminals, we think that you should not hesitate to remove Search.easyvideoconverteraccess.com and all other possibly related infections.
We have found that this browser hijacker comes from an infamous family that includes other similar and identical threats, such as Search.ma-cmf.com and Search.searchsmg.com. All these hijackers are spread on the web mostly via freeware bundles. The biggest issue with bundled software is that they are no longer trustworthy since schemers use this method to distribute third-party installers that may contain several adware programs, browser hijackers, fake alerts, Trojans as well as potentially unwanted applications. Inexperienced computer users can easily infect their system with such a lot when they click on corrupt third-party advertisements or links. This can happen when, for example, your computer is infected with malware or you end up on a questionable website with suspicious third-party content.
If your system is infected, it is possible that you are exposed to unreliable advertising through adware programs and browser hijackers as well. You should know that if there is an adware app on board, even reliable webpages might become a trap for you since their third-party ads might be hijacked and lead to malicious websites or clicking on them could result in dropping infections onto your system. The same is true for landing on unfamiliar suspicious websites, such as gaming and file-sharing sites. These host the most shady third-party content usually. These ads do not even resemble proper commercials as they can be totally disguised in order to deceive you. If you click on any of these ads and links, you may drop a whole bundle of threats onto your computer. If this could have happened to you, we suggest that you delete Search.easyvideoconverteraccess.com and scan your system with a reliable online malware scanner to find out about your malware situation.
This browser hijacker could appear to be a useful addition to your browser as it provides you with a toolbar, which is not even a real one, that hosts a number of quick-link buttons leading to third-party pages relating to video conversion. There is also a link to show you local weather forecast information but this is indeed a page with a widget and several third-party ads that could be risky to click on. This browser extension has proved to be totally worthless since not only is it potentially unreliable, but it also simply redirects you to third-party pages, such as online-convert.com and zamzar.com. These could be, of course, reliable video converter pages, but there is no use in starting from this questionable search page to use them.
Apart from this potentially risky fake toolbar, the search engine itself also could pose a threat to your system security. In fact, all your search queries are redirected to a modified Yahoo search results page that could contain unreliable third-party content, such as commercials and sponsored links. If you engage with such content, you could end up on dangerous pages operated by cyber criminals. For example, you may land on a fake online shop that asks for your banking details to sell you a fake product. This could result in your losing money from your bank account. We do not want to shock you with how else criminals could take advantage of you or your personal details once they get hold of them. Instead, we recommend that you remove Search.easyvideoconverteraccess.com ASAP.
In order to put an end to this annoying infection, we suggest that you run the uninstaller via Control Panel and then, remove the undesirable extension from Mozilla Firefox, which is left untouched by this uninstaller. You can use our instructions below if you do not know how to do all this. But, if you are looking for the best way to safeguard your computer from malicious programs, we recommend that you employ a decent malware removal application, such as SpyHunter. Keeping this software always updated and activated you could have the perfect defense for your computer you may need.
