Danger level 7
Type: Browser Hijackers may show up in your browsers when you launch them and you may even think that it is a useful addition to your browsers; but, we are tell you why you may be wrong. This search website features a fake toolbar, which is very familiar to us right away. In fact, this infection happens to come from a constantly growing browser hijacker family that also includes, an almost identical one,, and among dozens of others, which are all very similar. Since this hijacker may present to you potentially unreliable content that can cause further infections and worse, we think that it is best if you remove from your computer. For the details, please read our full report.

You can infect your computer with such a browser hijacker in a couple of ways; yes, you. It may come as a shock but it is actually you, the user, who installs this malware infection. It can go two ways: You either know about it but do not realize it, or you do not see it coming as it changes your browser settings without your permission. The former is probably the more frequent, which means that a lot of users still do not pay enough attention whenever they click on third-party content or install free software. In other words, whenever you are installing a freeware bundle, you need to be extra cautious because schemers can be quite tricky when it comes to bundle installers. They may only reveal the content if you select the “custom” installation option, or even if they put a notification with a checkbox, it would be hard to see or you would simply concentrate on the Next or the Install button. However, if you install this hijacker this way, you need to know that there could be other malware threats on board now that require your immediate attention after you delete

Many users do not even realize that they are actually installing a bundle that may contain a number of other free tools as well as malicious software installers packed together. Most victims believe that they are installing a free program and that is all. However, if you download this program from questionable torrent or shareware pages, chances are you download a package of unfortunate surprises alongside your target program, which may or may not work at all. There are plenty of fake file-sharing websites that are only created to fish for new victims of free or cracked file downloads. This is one way for cyber criminals to infect a lot of people around the world. This calls for a proper malware scan on your system if you want to figure out what else may be endangering your computer after removing

It is also possible that you infect your computer with this browser hijacker when you visit suspicious websites that present to you several third-party advertisements, such as banners and pop-ups. These ads could also be disguised as urgent system notifications, software updates, navigational buttons, and download buttons. These pages are usually related to gaming, gambling, file-sharing, and pornography. In addition to all this, it is also a probability that your computer was already infected with a browser hijacker or an adware program when you were presented with the unsafe link or advertisement. In any case, we suggest that you remove as soon as possible

This search website could not be more useless actually. It simply offers you quick links to a news, a local weather forecast page as well as e-mail-related pages and servers, including Outlook, Gmail, and Yahoo. You can also find a row of thumbnail links to popular websites (e.g., Amazon, Facebook, and Twitter) below the main search field. Why do we say that all these are unnecessary? Well, you can simply use your browsers’ bookmarking function to have any preferred sites on a bar one click away. You do not need a questionable search websites or browser extension to be able to do so. Another thing about this hijacker is that it may display modified search results if you get redirected to possibly a Yahoo results page. The only reason we cannot confirm this redirection and only assume from our previous experience with this family is that right now this redirection does not seem to work. You seem to end up on a page that claims that an “error occurred while processing your request.” Normally, this is the page that forwards you to Yahoo. Since this could only be a temporary error, by the time you read this article, you could be facing questionable search results on a seemingly reputable page. We recommend that you do not use this search website in any case if you do not want to drop additional malware threats on your system or end up on malicious websites being scammed. We advise you to remove right now.

We have prepared a guide for you below that you can follow to change your home page settings this infection hijacked. These are really easy steps for even a beginner computer user. But we also know that not everyone like to do such manual work on their system. It is also true that there could be other threats on your system, not to mention the possible future ones if you do not protect your PC more efficiently. This is why we recommend that you use a trustworthy security tool, such as SpyHunter to defend your system against all known malware infections.
