What is Seekforsearch.com?
If you launch your browser and you are greeted by Seekforsearch.com, there is a great chance that your browser was hijacked. This suspicious search tool might appear not only on the homepage of Firefox, Chrome, or Internet Explorer browser but also hijack the default search provider. The hijacker takes over the browser in a way that you would use a search engine introduced by ClientConnect Ltd. This company stands behind Searchthatup.com, Premiumsearchweb.com, and many other suspicious search providers as well. Although the interfaces of these “search tools” are very convincing, Anti-Spyware-101.com malware experts warn that these tools cannot be trusted. As a matter of fact, we recommend removing them, and you can learn why that is so by reading this report. Keep in mind that this report was specifically designed to help users understand and delete Seekforsearch.com. If you are dealing with other hijackers, refer to articles that were created after analyzing them.
How does Seekforsearch.com work?
Seekforsearch.com might be spread via software bundles. There are two things we need to discuss here. First of all, the installers carrying this browser hijacker might present misleading information, due to which you might choose to install it yourself. That does not mean that the search tool is harmless. Even if it was installed with your permission, you have the right to identify it as a browser hijacker if it was promoted in a misleading manner. The second thing we need to discuss is third-party malware. We do not refuse the possibility that Seekforsearch.com will be distributed on its own, but there is a high possibility that it will be spread by malicious installers along with malware. Since there is huge possibility that malware could be spread along with the hijacker, you should scan your operating system with a legitimate and trusted malware scanner as soon as you can. Do not panic if multiple threats are discovered because you should be able to remove them successfully. Obviously, if you have already decided that you want to clean your operating system manually, you must scan your PC to figure out which threats you need to delete first. If other threats are not detected, focus on the hijacker.
