- Hijacks homepage
- Changes default search engine
The interface of Isearchnow.com is misleading; especially if you look at the “enhanced by Google” tag next to the dialog box. Google Search is the leading search provider in the world, and its alleged association with the hijacker might confuse many users. Even if the hijacker is taking search results from this well-known provider, that does not make them trustworthy overall. Remember that the infection can modify results and include potentially unreliable sponsored content. Another thing that is meant to put your mind at ease is the easy-access links to Amazon, eBay, Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, Instagram, and Wikipedia. Although you might find them beneficial, their existence does not make Isearchnow.com a trustworthy tool, and you should not interact with them because of the data-tracking that the hijacker performs. After all, much better and more reliable search tools exist, and you do not need to stick with one that is useless and, potentially, dangerous as well. Of course, before you can choose the preferred search tool, you have to delete the malicious browser hijacker.
According to our research, the suspicious Isearchnow.com is most likely to spread bundled with other infections. These installers could be promoted on filewin.com, malavida.es, descargar.es, and other unreliable file-sharing sites. What that means is that you might be dealing with more than one threat. If that is the case, a reliable malware scanner will help you identify the infections that you need to remove from your operating system. The chances are that you might be able to delete all of them manually (you can delete Isearchnow.com using the guide below), but that is not an option that is suitable for all users. Anti-malware software, on the other hand, can help out everyone. It automatically detects and removes malicious infections, and, at the same time, it starts protecting your operating system in a way so that other infections could not slither in again. Without a doubt, our research team recommends employing anti-malware software.
