- Hijacks homepage
Expressfind.net is definitely not the kind of search engine you want to find as your home page when you open your browser. In fact, this website may be an uninvited “guest” on your computer. Since it has the ability to hijack your home page, i.e., to set itself as your new home page without your permission, we have labeled it as a browser hijacker. Since the presence of this infection means that your privacy has been breached, you should expressly remove Expressfind.net. The longer you leave it in your browsers, the more chance it has to expose you to potentially unreliable third-party web content. Unfortunately, it is possible that this is not even the only malware infection on-board because it may arrive alongside other threats. In order to have a better understanding of the potential risks, please read on.
Since you cannot download a standalone file to install this tool, no wonder that it is mainly found in freeware bundles containing malicious software installers. You can easily download an infected bundle if you visit shady shareware sites or torrent pages. These usually host third-party bundles, which can be promoted through suspicious third-party ads, such as banners and pop-ups. It is also possible that the download button you click on will not download the software of your choice, but, instead, a bundle of malware programs. The reason behind this is that third-parties can disguise their “ads” as buttons, for example. That is why you should not use unfamiliar, questionable websites for downloading software. Once you let the whole package onto your machine, you will have no other choice than to delete Expressfind.net and the related threats as well.
Expressfind.net displays a rather simple search page that lacks the logo picture. We have found that the logo file is simply missing mysteriously. That is rather strange; however, this is not the reason why you should not use this search engine. As a matter of fact, this hijacker can modify your search results and include third-party ads and links. If you click on such unreliable links, you might be taken to unsafe websites. The consequences may range from downloading some more malware infections to even being scammed and losing money. We believe that you do not want that. That is why it is important that you act, and act now. Remove Expressfind.net if you want to protect your computer.
This browser hijacker does not have its own uninstaller, so you cannot get rid of it via Control Panel. But before you start worrying how you are going to clean your computer now, let us give you a simple solution. As a matter of fact, all you need to do is restore the home page settings in your browsers. This is really not rocket science, but, if you need help, please use our instructions below. If you want more efficient defense for your PC, we recommend that you download and install a professional malware remover. Nevertheless, it is also advisable to keep all your applications updated because, in a lot of cases, cyber criminals can exploit older vulnerabilities, for example, in drivers and browsers.
