Luxemil is search engine that is classified as adware, because it displays pop-up advertisements. A lot of users have been complaining that they are being redirected to Luxemil.com website and their homepage is changed to this page as well, although they did not do it. In such case Luxemil functions as browser hijacker, but it should be noted, that the website itself is not malicious. However, it can cause a lot of problems if it is used by a third party as a mediator for malware distribution.
If you cannot avoid being redirected to Luxemil, there is a very big possibility that you are infected with other malware, such as Trojan or worm. When you have a malicious version of Luxemil, your default search engine will be Luxemil.com and you will be forced to conduct your searches with it. During an infected search you will see most of the search results displayed, but first and foremost Luxemil will display affiliated advertisements and webpages that expect to make money by increasing their own traffic.
What is more, Luxemil can also monitor your browsing habits and preferences, to direct particular commercial ads at you, that might cater to your taste. Your search terms, volume and other data could also be gathered by Luxemil. Actually, sometimes it is hard to notice that you are being redirected, because the redirect itself occurs even when you load a perfectly safe page. The website you are being redirected (for example, tracking999.com) loads very fast and then instantaneously the users are directed to the website they are going to open in the first place.
Since there is no download button in the official Luxemil.com website, you are having problems with this search engine, then it is very likely that the malware responsible for redirecting you has been installed on your computer together with other freeware that you might have downloaded. Thus, we strongly encourage you to be careful about installing new programs. Do not forget to read terms and conditions, and do uncheck a box that offers you to install a toolbar, especially if you do not need one.
To remove Luxemil from your computer, you must download a reliable antimalware tool and then delete the program automatically. The antimalware tool will detect all possible infections within your system and your computer will be cleaned at once. Also, your default browser settings will be restored and you will not need to change them manually.
