What is Detailexplore.com?
If you find Detailexplore.com in your browsers when you launch them, you need to know that this is an addition that might put your virtual security at risk even though this search engine does not seem to be functioning as of yet. Although this is a new search engine, our malware specialists at anti-spyware-101.com say that it is an identical clone of other search engines that reside on the same server, including Currentexplore.com and Searchbent.com. Just because this questionable search engine does not display search results, the simple fact that it is in your browsers could indicate the presence of other malware infections. This potential threat does not usually spread alone. Therefore, it is just as important for you to detect all other infections as it is to remove Detailexplore.com from your browsers. For further details, please continue reading our report.
Where does Detailexplore.com come from?
It is actually possible to avoid similar malware attacks even if your computer is not protected by proper anti-malware software. But for you to be able to do this, you have to make sure that there are no malware programs on your system at all. Because if there is one single adware program or a browser hijacker on board, you could be presented with unreliable third-party contents while you are browsing the web or run a web search. Clicking on unsafe third-party advertisements and sponsored links could drop infections such as this search engine onto your system; however, it is also possible that you download a full bundle of malware threats instead. When your system is not fully clean, you risk the exposure to such unreliable contents. This is why you need to make sure that there is not a single malware infection on board after you delete Detailexplore.com.
Another option for this useless search engine to show up on your computer has also to do with your clicking on the wrong third-party content; however, in this case, you need to visit suspicious websites to be presented with such ads. Although you may think that you would never land on such sites on purpose, let us tell you that anytime you search the web for free stuff, such as movies, music files, books, and software, there is a good chance that your results page will contain a number of fake or malicious websites. If you are not an experienced user, you may easily choose the wrong link to click. Once you land on a questionable file-sharing or gaming website, the first thing you may notice is the amount of annoying third-party ads. These can be flashing banners, pop-ups, Flash videos, and so on. However, not all contents look like commercials. Some may be disguised as buttons, for example, download or next-page buttons, or could pose as system notifications to install urgent updates. Once again, clicking on any of these unreliable ads could drop a malicious package onto your machine containing adware programs, browser hijackers, fake alerts, Trojans, and potentially unwanted programs. If this could have happened to you, we suggest that you delete Detailexplore.com and run a malware scanner to find out about the number of threats you need to face before your computer becomes safe again.
How does Detailexplore.com work?
As we have already mentioned, this search engine does not actually work. In fact, this means that you can send your queries and seemingly you end up on a results page; however, there are never results displayed, but, instead, you see an error message stating that no matches have been found. This happens every time you try a different keyword. It is hard to believe that a search engine would not give results for such general keywords as “shopping,” “online,” or “web,” rights? Well, this search engine may not work at all but it still provides you with a feature of three automatic keywords for fifteen different search categories. One single click and you could search the web for “movies,” “jobs,” “travel,” and more. But obviously you cannot really. Nevertheless, we consider this as a potential threat source since when it start functioning, it may start collecting information about your online habits and show you modified search results accordingly. We recommend that you stick with reputable search engines, including Google, Yahoo, and Bing. Even these can display unreliable results, so imagine a questionable one that would try to promote potentially unreliable third parties through ads and sponsored links. If you do not want to bring more infections to your system or be scammed by crooks and lose money, we suggest that you remove Detailexplore.com as soon as possible.
