My Quick Converter is a browser hijacker developed by Polarity Technologies Ltd. If it ever successfully infiltrates your computer, you will find your browsers’ settings altered. Research has shown that it is compatible with Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome browsers, so if you have any of these web browsers installed on your computer, you will notice the changes applied sooner or later. Specifically speaking, your homepage on all these browsers will be altered. Because of this, you will see http://search.hmyquickconverter.com/ open for you every time you launch any of them. This page looks like a search provider, but we cannot confirm that it is a legitimate search tool users can fearlessly use for web searching.

If your final decision is the complete browser hijacker removal, you will need to perform a few removal steps to delete the search tool from the place of your homepage.

The appearance of http://search.hmyquickconverter.com/ suggests that it is an ordinary search provider, but it is only an illusion, specialists say. They have noticed that not all the search results opened by this search provider are based on the search query entered by the user. It has been observed that some of them are the so-called modified search results. The search tool returns them to users expecting that they will click on them and visit promoted pages. Most likely, the browser hijacker’s author gets some money for driving traffic to them. We are sure revenue is the most important thing for them, so you might find modified search results opening dubious pages promoting untrustworthy software too among the search results opened for you. It is not very easy to say which of the search results returned by http://search.hmyquickconverter.com/ can be fully trusted and which are these modified search results, so we see the only possible outcome here – the browser hijacker removal. It would be a sin to use the untrustworthy search tool set when there are so many reputable search providers available on the market.
There is a reason your browsers’ settings have been changed. Most likely, you have installed the entire malicious software bundle containing the My Quick Converter browser hijacker on your computer.

It will not be very easy to protect your PC from new malicious applications, but you need to do something if you do not want to find your browsers’ settings changed again without your knowledge. Without a doubt, the easiest way to prevent bad software from entering the system is to install security software. You should do this too if you do not want to find new undesirable software on your computer anytime soon.
