What is YesSearches.com?
YesSearches.com is bad news for you if it appears in your browsers since it may signal the presence of a browser hijacker on your Windows operating system. It is not likely that you would set this search engine yourself as your home page, so that means that it has been set without your knowledge and consent. That is exactly why our researchers at Anti-Spyware-101.com have classified it as a browser hijacker. According to our test results, this search engine is unreliable and might introduce you to harmful third-party content. In order to keep your computer protected, we advise you to delete YesSearches.com as soon as possible. If you hesitate to act, you may jeopardize more infections and their consequences. Please continue reading our report if you would like to understand more about the risks this malware infection may hold for you and your operating system.
Where does YesSearches.com come from?
This search engine shares the same domain with lots of adware apps and search engines. That already makes it questionable. And it only gets worse because it seems to be mostly spread in freeware bundles. These software packages may contain a number of malware infections alongside authentic freeware. Obviously, if you find a legitimate source for your free software download, you should have no problem with the bundled version because it should only contain legitimate third-party tools and programs.
However, if you visit shady freeware sites or torrent sites, there is a good chance that you download an infected bundle, which you can do even accidentally by clicking on fake buttons, for example. It is important to know that you can still save the day if you are careful at the first steps of the installation, because that is mostly when the installer reveals the content, i.e., what additional programs it is planning to install by default. If you overlook this essential step, you may easily infect your computer with a whole bunch of threats. Removing YesSearches.com will not help you restore the security of your operating system. In such a case, you need to make sure you eliminate all other infections as well; otherwise, you cannot have peace of mind in your “virtual realm.”
What does YesSearches.com do?
This search engine provides you with a quasi-search tool that actually redirects all your queries to google.com. Thus, this browser hijacker proves itself totally redundant. It also offers you easy-access links to third-party websites in several categories, and there is also a banner to include third-party ads. Since you cannot know which ads or links you can trust, there is a chance that by clicking on them you might be redirected to potentially harmful websites. Landing on unsafe pages might get your computer infected with more malware applications. But that is only the “best” thing that could happen to you. You might also be scammed in all kinds of ways if you are not careful enough. We believe that you understand the dangers that these ads and links might expose you to. That is why we recommend that you delete YesSearches.com as soon as you can.
How can I remove YesSearches.com?
Eliminating YesSearches.com is definitely not a brain transplant operation. You can do it manually by simply overwriting the home page URLs in your browsers. But there is no guarantee, of course, that your PC is completely clean. That is why it is important to run a malware scanner and see what it finds. Once it returns with the result, you can still make up your mind about downloading and installing a trustworthy antimalware program so that you can efficiently protect your computer from any malware infection that could turn your system upside down and cause damage.
