Dosearches.com is a search engine which is said to be capable of retuning search results from Google and Yahoo. It is associated with v9.com, portaldosites.com, and some others browser hijackers that may be difficult to remove from the browser, be it Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox.
Like the search engine mentioned above, dosearches.com contains four links to 9hoho.com, games337.com, amazon.com, and ebay.com. The startup page may remind you of Google because it contains a picture which is similar to Google doodles.

What is more, it has been found that dosearches.com returns results from the Yahoo Search. The search result page contains various advertisements that are presented in separate blocks, which you should ignore in order not to be taken to insecure websites.
