Another reason to delete Search.searchsolod.com from your browser is that it works as a redirector. As you enter a search keyword into the provided dialog box, you are immediately rerouted to Yahoo Search at search.yahoo.com. What is wrong with that? Unfortunately, the hijacker might force this search engine to showcase sponsored links, and you are more likely to interact with them because of the good reputation that Yahoo has. In fact, it is very easy to identify this browser hijacker as a harmless tool because it also promotes easy-access links to all kinds of sites. The tabs at the top automatically route to news.mynewswire.co, gmail.com, facebook.com, filebistro.com, virustotal.com, and online-convert.com. Additionally, you have links routing to turbotax.intuit.com, taxact.com, and hrblock.com (all of these are tax-related sites) at the bottom. If you only look at these, you might think that the hijacker is harmless. If you think about the fact that it can record private information and even expose you to annoying or unreliable links via the search tool it promotes, you should consider removing Search.searchsolod.com.
