Maps Driving Directions
If you have recently installed a piece of software named Maps Driving Directions, you should not be surprised that your homepage has been changed to Search.searchmmap.com because this application only promotes this website. At first glance, it might seem to be useful, but, as you will see for yourself if you ever install it on your computer, it does nothing except for setting this page as a homepage. We cannot confirm that it is a trustworthy search provider, so if you are looking for a reliable tool that would allow you to find the information on the web quickly and conveniently, you should not rely on Search.searchmmap.com, especially if you have nothing to do with the installation of Maps Driving Directions. To remove the undesirable page set, you will have to get rid of the piece of software promoting it. Even though it is considered a browser hijacker, you should not find its removal complicated at all. You can find more about its removal in the last paragraph.
Some users install Maps Driving Directions themselves and then find their browsers’ settings altered, but it seems that you are not one of them if you are reading this article. We suspect that you have found the undesirable changes applied to your web browsers, i.e. your homepage has been changed, and you do not know anything about this. Researchers say that there is a huge possibility that this browser hijacker is distributed bundled with other programs. Most likely, they are free applications that can be downloaded from such websites as filewin.com, filewon.com, and malavida.es. Have you recently installed some kind of new application downloaded from the web? If so, we are not surprised at all that your browsers’ settings have been altered. You should install new programs more carefully the next time to prevent the entrance of browser hijackers or other untrustworthy applications. What else you can do to ensure your system’s maximum protection is to install a reputable antimalware tool.
If Search.searchmapp.com has been set on your browsers and you are not happy about its presence, you can remove it anytime. You can set a new homepage on all these affected browsers, or you can simply reset them all to their default settings. It is not a problem if you have never done that before because our manual removal guide – you will find it right below this paragraph – will help you. Just follow the removal steps as indicated. Alternatively, all modifications made by the browser hijacker can be undone using an automated antimalware scanner.
