It seems to us the only benefit of keeping Search.easyrecipesnow.com on the browser is having links to cooking web pages, such as Recipes Simplified, Food Network, Yummly, and other. Still, a few popular links you could easily bookmark yourself is hardly worth enough to allow this browser hijacker stay on the system. If you leave Search.easyrecipesnow.com, you will probably use it for surfing the Internet and once you do you may receive suspicious advertising content that might come from malicious web pages. We do not say all of the ads would be dangerous, but some of them could be and as we already stated we do not think the search engine is worth taking any risks. Accordingly, our researchers have prepared deletion instructions to assist users with the browser hijacker’s removal; we will add them at the end of the text. However, we encourage you not to rush and read the rest of the text first to get to know this threat better.
It is thought the application could be showing suspicious advertising content because it redirects the user to possibly modified Yahoo search results. It means there is a possibility Search.easyrecipesnow.com may inject the results Yahoo gathers with the ads from its third-party partners; in other words, there might be advertisements you would not see while using the original search.yahoo.com.
If you think you may have accepted this search engine without even realizing it, we recommend being a bit more cautious in the future. Users who download installers from doubtful sources, such as P2P file-sharing networks, sites distributing pirated software, and so on, should pay more attention to the installation process. It is quite likely that the setup files you receive from the mentioned sources could be bundled with potentially dangerous or even malicious threats. Therefore, it would be wise to select custom installation settings and read all provided terms. If the setup wizard suggests additional applications you find suspicious or unwanted, you should just deselect them. Also, among the terms, there could be statements claiming the software might install or download other programs without notifying the user. In such case, it is advisable to cancel the process.
Of course, the mentioned precautions might be not enough to protect the system from every threat, and it might be a smart idea to keep a reliable antimalware tool that could do a better job. Such a tool can help users get rid of Search.easyrecipesnow.com too, so if you prefer removing the threat with automatic features, a trustworthy security tool is worth to consider. The browser hijacker can be erased manually as well, although the process could appear to be a bit complicated for some users. Nevertheless, we are adding deletion instructions just as we promised below the text and if you feel up to the task, you should follow them to eliminate the suspicious search engine on your own.
