What is Trickyquestion.com?
Even though there are plenty of malicious programs that can enter and run without alarming computer users, Trickyquestion.com is the kind of threat that you cannot miss. This is a browser hijacker that takes over your browsers, and, unless you do not surf the web, you should notice it right away. Of course, some users might mistake this hijacker for a regular search provider as it might route you to Google Search. Regardless of whether you are redirected to a popular and seemingly reputable search engine or you are routed to a completely unfamiliar and potentially unreliable search engine, you need to be concerned. Legitimate search tools would not initiate redirection without your permission, and this is the first sign that you need to remove Trickyquestion.com from your browsers.
How does Trickyquestion.com work?
Although “Trickyquestion.com” is the name of the hijacker we are discussing, we have found that this is not the search tool that actually replaces your homepage. https://s3.amazonaws.com/amazo/RNND/sRCH2.html and https://s3.amazonaws.com/amazo/RNND/sCH8nO.html are the URLs that you are likely to find on the homepage of your browsers. Regardless of the URL, if you enter keywords, you are most likely to be redirected to Trickyquestion.com. In some cases, users might be routed to 521news.com and, as mentioned previously, google.com. Luckily, you will not encounter redirecting when using your default search provider, as this hijacker does not affect that part of your browser. As a matter of fact, this hijacker does not replace your homepage in a traditional manner either. It was found that this threat changes the shortcut Target, which is why most users have trouble eliminating this devious hijacker.
Since Trickyquestion.com is targeted at computer users living in the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Qatar, it is not surprising that this search tool is represented using the Arabic language. Even though this search tool does not look dangerous, we have to warn you about the banner advertisements it might showcase. If you interact with these ads, you might end up visiting unreliable sites, and this is just another reason to get rid of this hijacker. Unfortunately, even if you remove Trickyquestion.com successfully, you might encounter issues associated with adware (e.g., Vonteera), potentially unwanted programs, or even clandestine Trojans that might come bundled with the hijacker. We have found that silent Trojans could be responsible for downloading the hijacker, which is why you must eliminate them first.
How to delete Trickyquestion.com
