What is is a new search page that can pose a threat to your virtual security with its potentially unreliable contents. Our malware specialists at has found that this questionable search engine belongs to a browser hijacker family that seems to give birth to a new child every other day or so. While there seems to be quite a productive and creative team behind these malware infections, a lot of these pages are sheer clones of each other or only the main themes, i.e., the available quick-links are different. You need to understand the risks of clicking on questionable third-party ads and links such a hijacker may present you with. If you would like to keep your system safe, we recommend that you remove as soon as possible. In order for you to be able to manually defend your system against similar attacks, you need to know how such a browser hijacker may appear in your browsers. Let us tell you the details before we share with you the solution.test

Where does come from?

A lot of computer users find it unbelievable that such an infection can sneak onto their system because they let it. Although you need to give permission for the browser setting changes most of the time, it is usually done in a way that you may not notice it or will not remember. This is what generally happens when you install free software for example. The worst case is when you download this software from questionable file-sharing sites, such as torrent and freeware pages. These sites are known to host unsafe third-party ads and malicious installers, i.e., bundles that may contain a number of potentially unwanted programs as well as adware applications, browser hijackers, fake warnings, keyloggers, backdoors, and so on. If there is a chance that your computer could be infected with more than one known threats, we suggest that you delete and find a reliable malware scanner online that can identify all other questionable applications for you that may be endangering your system.

It is always risky to click on any third-party content, as a matter of fact, unless your PC is protected by an up-to-date anti-malware application. Even more so, if you formerly infected your computer with malware threats (e.g., adware programs, browser hijackers, and potentially unwanted applications). If you try to refrain from clicking on banner and pop-up ads and visiting suspicious websites, you may have a chance to keep your PC more or less clean of malicious threats. You may not be aware but you may also infect your system by clicking on banners or pop-ups that notify you about a needed software update. Cyber criminals use this to trick unsuspecting users to infect their system with bundles. Remember, if you want to update any software or driver, you need to do this via official sites. In order to stop further infections, you should remove from your infected browsers.

How does work?

You may be a fan of cooking and online recipes, but if so, we suggest that you bookmark your favorite pages and have them one click away just like that. This search page offers you a toolbar with usual tools like the search tool, the news, and the local weather forecast widget page as well as third-party websites associated with cooking. Please note that these pages may contain potentially unreliable third-party ads that could pose a threat to your system security. You can also find a number of thumbnail links leading to popular websites (Amazone, YouTube, and Gmail) as well as the same cooking-related pages as above on the toolbar. These thumbnails occupy the space below the search field and can be hidden.

The main problem with this browser hijacker is that it can spy on you and use the collected data to display customized content through modified search results. This means that it does not matter that you find yourself on a Yahoo search results page, it may have potentially unreliable third-party ads and links, which you will not be able to tell from authentic and trustworthy ones. This is how you may infect your computer very easily or end up being scammed and robbed of your hard-earned money. We believe that it is the first step towards a safer system if you remove from your computer.

How do I delete

You can either use the built-in menus of your browsers to change the home page settings or use our guide below this article to put an end to this hijacker manually. Keep in mind that this infection could be one of many that potentially endanger your system. You cannot think that your job is done simply by removing You can try to detect other threats yourself by checking your installed programs list in Control Panel or scanning through the installed extensions in your browsers. But remember that there could be certain infections that even more experienced users could not necessarily find or remove entirely. Therefore, we advise you to consider protecting your PC with a proper anti-malware application like SpyHunter.
