- Hijacks homepage
- Changes default search engine
Convertpdfsearch.com is a search tool promoted by the Convert into PDF extension, so if your browsers have already started opening a new website, there is no doubt that this piece of software is active on your system. Some users download this extension willingly expecting that it will allow them to convert files from/to a PDF format without limit. We cannot blame those users because this browser extension is promoted as a file converter. Unfortunately, we cannot confirm that it works beneficially because it is impossible to convert any files at the time of writing. Additionally, it tells users that it will alter their New Tab pages only, but, in reality, it also sets Convertpdfsearch.com as a homepage, which is why users quickly notice the changes applied to their browsers. No matter you have downloaded the extension promoting this search tool willingly, or it has entered your system without permission, remove it without consideration from browsers, especially if you do not like the applied changes. The next paragraph will explain why it would be best to get rid of it and thus stop using the search tool set.
Not all the users can understand why they see Convertpdfsearch.com set on their browsers, but, frankly speaking, there are only two possible reasons why users see this search tool set: they have installed the extension promoting it, or it has entered their PCs without permission. Unfortunately, it seems that there are more users out there who do not know anything about the entrance of the extension associated with Convertpdfsearch.com. According to our specialists, these users have, most probably, installed a software bundled downloaded from the web. Bundling is one of the most popular untrustworthy software distribution methods, so you should be more attentive the next time, e.g. read the information provided in the setup wizard and, on top of that, it is advisable to acquire a security application so that the history would not repeat itself.
Resetting browsers is one of the ways to get rid of Convertpdfsearch.com fully, but you can also remove this untrustworthy URL from your all browsers automatically. The latter is the removal method we would choose over the manual one because an automatic scanner is capable of erasing all the active threats from the system all at once.
