The search engine, unlike other reliable search engines, may contain an advertisement which will redirect you a suspicious website. Moreover, will provide you with links to websites which are given under the heading Ads. We recommend that you pay no attention to those ads in order to minimize the risk of getting the PC infected.  You may also be provided with pop-up advertisements which offer you to acquire an item or order a service. If the offers are provided at the time while is present as your home page, we advise you against clicking on those ads in order not to get tricked by crafty schemers.
