- Hijacks homepage
- Changes default search engine
Mywebsearch.com.au is a search tool that was created for the Australian market. This search provider appears to be “Powered by Excite Digital Media,” which is an online advertiser. Do you want to see ads and sponsored links instead of links that might deliver information you are actually interested in? Of course you do not, but that is exactly what you will have to deal with if you do not remove Mywebsearch.com.au from all of your browsers. According to our researchers, this search provider is compatible with Firefox, Chrome, and IE browsers, and, if several or all three of them are installed, you might have to delete it from all of them.
The first reason we suggest removing Mywebsearch.com.au is its ability to corrupt browsers. This search tool is known to replace normal homepage and search provider tools without permission, which makes it a browser hijacker. Can you trust a program that can modify settings without your knowledge? Of course you cannot because illegal activity is always associated with malware (malicious software). Although Mywebsearch.com.au cannot download malware, hijack your online banking accounts, or damage your operating system, it deserves immediate removal, and we have two more reasons for this. First of all, if you do not remove Mywebsearch.com.au, you will not be able to browse the web efficiently. Secondly, it can spy on you and share the data collected with unknown parties.
Just like Fetchsearch.com, Asiasearch.co, Gotsearch.co.uk, and other browser hijackers from the same family, Mywebsearch.com.au only pretends to be a useful search provider. When you enter keywords into the search box, you will be shown a search results page with links to a number of other pages that should show additional results. In reality, the search results are repetitive, and it should not take long for you to realize this. Mywebsearch.com.au is just as useless at showing Images, Videos, or News results. Should you keep using this worthless search tool? Of course you should not; you should delete it instead!
According to the research we have conducted, Mywebsearch.com.au is likely to be bundled by malicious installers. These installers are likely to carry potentially unwanted programs, advertising-supported software, and malware. If the unreliable search tool has corrupted your browsers illegally, you need no convincing that other threats might have slithered in silently as well. If you have installed this threat by accident, you might think that you know all programs that deserve removal. Instead of making guesses, use a malware scanner that will inform you if or not you need to delete malware.
We are hopeful that it will be enough to change the homepage URL to remove Mywebsearch.com.au. This hijacker is not very aggressive, and you should be able to delete it using this simple method. Of course we cannot protect you from leftovers or third-party malware. Use antimalware software to have all threats identified and deleted automatically. The best part is that once an antimalware tool is done with the removal of malware it continuously protects your operating system from other dangerous infections and the attacks of malicious schemers.
