- Hijacks homepage
- Changes default search engine
If you are not careful when installing software, you might invite all kinds of random, useless, and malicious programs in. Search.searchlrom.com is a browser hijacker that we recognize as a potential threat to your virtual security. This suspicious hijacker was developed by Polarity Technologies Ltd., but its interface is identical to those of Search.yourinterestscenter.com, Search.youremailnow.com, Search.we-cmf.com, and other hijackers created by SaferBrowser. Notably, most of these suspicious search tools are linked to unique extensions that modify homepage and search provider settings. In our case, an extension does not exist, and that is quite strange. All in all, the suspicious search tool must have been introduced to you in some way, and it is likely that it was introduced to you along with other programs. Should they be deleted? That is something you can learn by analyzing these programs individually. In this report, we discuss the removal of Search.searchlrom.com. Keep in mind that although this search tool looks kind of harmless, your virtual security could be on the line if you interact with it.
The first thing we need to talk about is the distribution of Search.searchlrom.com. Since it is unlikely that this hijacker is offered along with a browser extension that might have an official download page, it is likely that this hijacker is mainly spread by third parties. In fact, you might have been offered this allegedly useful search tool when installing some other seemingly attractive programs. Software bundles are not always unreliable, but many of them are filled with unnecessary, useless, and, worst of all, malicious programs. If you encounter a malicious installer, the threats carried by it could be installed silently as well. Were your homepage and default search provider modified without your permission? If they were, you have an advantage because you must realize that Search.searchlrom.com is unreliable. On the other hand, users who install this search tool themselves might believe it to be harmless and even useful. Would we discuss this hijacker and its removal if it were harmless? Of course not. If you do not know if malware exists, immediately install a trusted malware scanner.
If you modify the homepage of the infected browser, you should get rid of Search.searchlrom.com in no time. In case this hijacker is represented by an extension, you need to erase it as well. Obviously, you must not forget to eliminate malicious threats that might have been introduced to you along with this hijacker. The guide below explains how to delete Search.searchlrom.com from your browsers in an unconventional way. This method might appear to be more complicated, but it teaches how to modify your browsers via browser files, and that can help you with different kinds of malware that you might face in the future. Of course, if you employ authentic security software now, you will not need to worry about the attacks of other infections. In fact, if you employ anti-malware software, you will not even need to worry yourself about the elimination of already existing threats. Overall, the elimination of the hijacker is pretty simple, and if you have questions, you can post them in the comments section below.
