What is Bilisearch.com?
Bilisearch.com is a suspicious search engine that you do not want to find in your browsers. If it appears as your new homepage, it may be a sign that your computer has been attacked by a browser hijacker. In that case, the mere presence of this search engine is illegal and you should take action right away. Otherwise, you may leave an open door to cyber criminals to exploit the vulnerabilities of your system and steal your personally identifiable information or any other data you may store on your hard drive. But there are all kinds of other risks when it comes to this browser hijacker. According to our malware researchers, you have only one choice, and it is to remove Bilisearch.com from your computer. If you want to learn more about this infection and how it can harm your system, please go on with this article.
Where does Bilisearch.com come from?
It seems that the most likely way for this browser hijacker to end up on your computer is via free software bundles. You need to be very careful when downloading free software because you might find yourself on shady freeware sites, and that experience can easily end with a package of malware threats on board. What inexperienced computer users may not know is that even if you download such a bundle, you can still stop certain unwanted programs from being installed. If you are attentive enough and view every step of the installation carefully, you will probably find the designated checkboxes. It is also possible that these will only be revealed if you choose Custom or Advanced installation. However, if you rush to click “Next” or “Install”, you may let the whole lot onto your computer. That is a typical situation when deleting Bilisearch.com will not be enough; you will also have to find all other threats and eliminate them all.
How does Bilisearch.com work?
Once this browser hijacker activates, it sets Bilisearch.com as your new homepage in all the major browsers without your permission. You need to be careful with this search engine because there are at least two third-party banner ads below the search box. These can pretend to be something useful so that you would click on them. However, once you click, you might be redirected to a questionable website. Another thing about this search engine is that you cannot trust the results it shows you even if it looks like it simply redirects you to Google.com, which you could obviously trust otherwise. But this search engine has the capability of manipulating search results, and that is how you may be introduced to some third-party sponsored links and ads among the normal results. Clicking on potentially unreliable links may take you to questionable websites. If you do not want to cause more harm to your computer, you should not hesitate to remove Bilisearch.com.
How can I delete Bilisearch.com?
This search engine does not seem to have an uninstaller that could make it really easy for you to remove it via Control Panel. Therefore, you need to manually overwrite or restore the homepage URL settings in your browsers. Since this browser hijacker affects all major browsers, you need to restore Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Mozilla Firefox as well. If you want to prevent malware attacks, there are a few things you can do yourself. For instance, you can try to stay away from unfamiliar and suspicious file-sharing websites and use only trustworthy ones for downloading tools and applications. It is also worth double-checking any software you want to download by performing a quick web search.
