What is Search.easyvideoconverteraccess.com?
Search.easyvideoconverteraccess.com is a potentially unreliable search engine page that can appear in your browsers after you install an online video converter application. In fact, this questionable program only seems to affect Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer but not Google Chrome. It is, of course, possible that in the near future a new version will come out that will show up in Chrome as well. Because of its capabilities, our malware specialists at anti-spyware-101.com have classified this infection as a browser hijacker. This malware infection may change your home page, new tab page, and default search engine settings. We have found that this browser extension is completely unnecessary and simply serves as a potentially unsafe mediator since it does not have its own functions other than redirecting you to other websites. Since this browser hijacker could introduce you to questionable third-party content that may pose a threat to your system security, we suggest that you remove Search.easyvideoconverteraccess.com as soon as possible from your browsers.
Where does Search.easyvideoconverteraccess.com come from?
This browser hijacker is not a new invention or the firstborn “child” of a new hijacker family. As a matter of fact, we have found dozens of very similar and even identical infections, such as Search.yourinstantfileconverter.com and Search.yourtelevisioncenter.com. There is an official webpage at easyvideoconverteraccess.com where you can directly install this useless browser extension when visiting it via Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox. However, we have found that you are not able to proceed with the installation unless you leave the checkboxes associated with the browser changes ticked, which is the default setting. We believe that this is a rather pushy method because even if seemingly you are given a choice to untick these, you cannot install this extension. But do you know what? You should not be sad at all because this is the kind of application that you should delete from your browsers the moment you find it.
Of course, it is quite unlikely that you find this promotional page at all. It is more probable that you directly install this browser hijacker by clicking on the wrong third-party ad or by downloading a bundle of malicious software installers. The latter can also happen when you click on a corrupt third-party ad or link. This is possible when your system was previously infected with malware programs that are capable of displaying third-party contents, such as adware programs and browser hijackers; however, sometimes even potentially unwanted programs can, too. But you may also be exposed to such unsafe ads when you land on suspicious websites associated with file sharing, gaming, gambling, dating, and porn videos. Our advice is this: try to keep away from such sites and only use reputable and official sites to download any software. If you end up with a bundle of malware threats, you simply multiply your system vulnerabilities making your virtual world much less secure. Therefore, we recommend that you delete Search.easyvideoconverteraccess.com right now and detect all other potentially risky applications by using a reliable malware scanner.
How does Search.easyvideoconverteraccess.com work?
Apart from the main “attraction,” the search engine itself, this malware infection also offers you a fake toolbar with a search tool as well as local weather news and easy-access links to video converting-related third-party websites. The local weather information is indeed its own page with a widget and a number of potentially risky third-party ads. The video conversions are not done by this browser extension as you may think by seeing its promotional page that claims over 1000 formats and all. In fact, you simply get redirected to online-convert.com and clipchamp.com, which you could easily bookmark using the built-in functions of your browsers. This makes this unreliable tool totally useless and unnecessary.
You can also find several thumbnail quick links below the search field leading to popular websites, such as Facebook, Yahoo, and YouTube, which you can hide by clicking on the link called, well, “Hide.” We do not advise you to use this search engine because it is possible that you end up on manipulated search.yahoo.com results pages including potentially unreliable contents, such as ads and links. These can easily come from cyber criminals who want to lure you onto their malicious pages. One single click can put you right in the center of an online scam or drop more infections onto your computer. If you do not want to experience any of these, we suggest that you remove Search.easyvideoconverteraccess.com right away.
How can I delete Search.easyvideoconverteraccess.com?
Our specialists have found that you can use the uninstaller you find in the list of installed programs in Control Panel but this will not take care of Mozilla Firefox. Therefore, you need to manually remove this extension to make sure that no leftovers remain. Please use our guide below if you need help with these steps. If you want to defend your computer from any malicious attack, we believe that the best solution is to install a proper anti-malware program, such as SpyHunter. Such a security tool can automatically protect your system from all known malware infections, which could finally give you peace of mind.
