The search engine is promoted by a browser hijacker, which you should remove from the browsers as soon as they get hijacked. The search provider can display third party advertisements and offers. The creators of the search engine are not responsible for your interaction with third party ads because they do not control those websites privacy policies and activities. You may think that key-find.com is a useful search engine, but bear in mind that you can access Yahoo like any other website and use its search engine.key-find.comkey-find.comkey-find.comkey-find.com 100% FREE spyware scan and

How does key-find.com work?

It is important to know that Yahoo is not the only search provider associated with key-find.com. The analysis of the browser hijacker revealed that key-find.com works differently on Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. When you enter a keyword in the search box on Mozilla Firefox, the browser hijacker can provide you with search results from searches.safehomepage.com/. In the case of Google Chrome, search.webssearches.com/ is loaded.

The browser hijacker can also alter the shortcuts to the browsers. It appends their target fields on the Shortcut tab so that you are shown the same home page even when you change the settings of the browsers. This method is used by many browsers hijackers, including nationzoom.com, awesomehp.cm, and aartemis.com.  If you decide to remove key-find.com manually, do not forget to edit the target line in order to achieve the desirable effect.

The browser hijacker can access your computer via bundled downloads, which means that you should be very cautious when dealing with installers acquired from freeware websites. The browser has been found to be bundled with Desk-365, IETabPage Class and Quick Start. Moreover, the odds are that a potentially unwanted program called SupTab is installed on your PC. This application can be installed without your permission, and, if you do not have a reliable computer security program, you may not suspect that the undesirable program is present on your PC.

When the browsers are hijacked by key-find.com, it is worth checking the processes running within the system. If you find that there is the process wprotectmanager.exe, terminate it straight away. The sooner you remove key-find.com and other unreliable programs from the PC, the sooner you can start browsing the Internet as usual.
