What is LetsSearch.com?
LetsSearch.com is an intrusive browser hijacker that does not care about your privacy and your preferences; it infiltrates your operating system and changes your browser settings without your consent. What would you expect from a tool that is illegally present on your computer? Would you actually use it? What do you think might happen if you keep searching the web with this search engine? If you cannot answer these questions, you might make the mistake of ignoring this useless hijacker. If you understand the possible and unfortunate consequences, you can protect your computer from more harm; but only then. And, of course, if you have an authentic antimalware tool installed, but it is not likely if you are reading this article. If your computer is not protected, there is only one thing you can do: You need to remove LetsSearch.com ASAP. Let us explain in more detail.
Where does LetsSearch.com come from?
Since there is no official website where you could download this tool from, it does not take a rocket scientist to figure out how it can still emerge “out of the blue sky” in your browsers. But let us give you a hint: software bundling. If you are an experienced computer user, you may know that bundles are a tricky area. While we definitely cannot say that all bundles should be avoided, you need to know that there are ones that may be packed with a bunch of malware infections. Those are the ones that usually carry adware applications, browser hijackers, and even potentially unwanted programs. So if you have visited some unreliable shareware or torrent sites lately, there is a good chance that you infected your computer with a bundle – or bundles – you downloaded from them.
How does LetsSearch.com act?
Well, this browser hijacker is no different from any other; it acts unreliably. It does not even provide its own search results, instead, it will redirect you to a possibly modified Ask.com search page. No matter that Ask.com is otherwise a reliable search engine, because LetsSearch.com can manipulate the search results and inject, for example, sponsored links. But it might also start showing you commercial advertisements, which you should not trust at all. Clicking on potentially compromised links and ads would be a big mistake as that may result in more malware threats and less money in your pocket. We advise you to delete LetsSearch.com from your browsers and find a decent search engine and preferred home page to use in your browsers.
How do I remove LetsSearch.com?
