Where does Websearch.simplesearches.info come from?

This particular program belongs to a long lineage of browser hijackers. They can be identified by their name, which always begins with “Websearch” and ends with “info.” The phrase in the middle is subject to change. Websearch.searchfix.info, Websearch.searchtheglobe.info, and Websearch.coolwebsearch.info are just a few examples. Websearch.simplesearches.info cannot be downloaded from a website as a standalone program, since it is traditionally bundled with other malicious software. You can get these kinds of bundles if you click fictitious Java and Adobe update messages that are commonplace on various torrent websites.

How does Websearch.simplesearches.info work?

You will surely notice the presence of Websearch.simplesearches.info if you get infected with it. When installed, the hijacker will automatically change the homepage of your browser to Websearch.simplesearches.info. The design of the homepage resembles that of Google, and with good reason, because the search queries are redirected to Google. This gives the impression that you are using your old search engine, but everything you search for goes through Websearch.simplesearches.info.

It must be mentioned that you will not be able to change your homepage using the browser’s settings, because once you restart the browser, the hijacker will once again take over it. However, we have included a guide that will help you get rid of this infection for good. One last thing to mention before we move on is that the main homepage contains commercial advertisements that you should not click under any circumstances. The origins of the ads are unknown, and they are definitely a source of trouble, since they might promote malicious websites.
