Dilyme

Dilyme is considered a browser hijacker, so if it ever infiltrates your computer, you will definitely notice the changes applied to your web browsers. According to specialists at anti-spyware-101.com, it should affect only Google Chrome; however, if you have found a new search tool set on your other browsers too, you should go to undo these changes as soon as possible because it is only a question of time when you will be exposed to potential threats if you use the search tool promoted by Dilyme to perform web searches. It should be enough to remove the extension called Dilyme from the list of add-ons to delete a dubious search tool that has been set as your default search provider, so we are sure you could do this yourself. If you feel that you need some help with that, you should read this article from beginning to end and only then take action. You should use our manual removal instructions (they can be found below this article) too. Read more »

Search.hdailysocialweb.com

Search.hdailysocialweb.com could seem like a useful tool for those who do not know how easy it is to bookmark favorite pages to make them easily accessible from the bookmarks bar. However, our malware researchers at anti-spyware-101.com say that you should be careful with this featured search website because it is indeed a browser hijacker very similar to all other threats in this so-called Polarity family, including Search.careerjobsearch.co and Search.searchvidpop.com. Polarity Technologies Ltd has become quite infamous for their useless and potentially risky search websites. These hijackers can show up on your system even without your knowledge and along with other malware infections. Since this hijacker can present to you modified search results, it is possible that you click on unreliable ads or links, which could have serious consequences. This is why we suggest that you remove Search.hdailysocialweb.com from your browsers if you do not want to cause further system security issues. Please continue reading our article to find out more about this infection. Read more »

Text From PC Toolbar

A piece of software that goes by the name Text From PC Toolbar is not exactly beneficial although some users might find it quite useful. We say so because it only changes web browsers’ settings when it is installed on users’ computers. Yes, it does not do anything else. Specialists at anti-spyware-101.com say that it should only change homepages on Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome. The new page it sets (Search.htextfrompc.co) looks like an ordinary search provider at first glance, but it is not exactly what it looks like. There are several reasons why specialists do not call it a fully reliable search tool – you can find all those reasons listed in the next paragraph, so read it if you want to find out how it acts, or you simply cannot understand why a legitimate-looking search tool has to be removed.

Home.packagesear.ch

Home.packagesear.ch

If your homepage was taken over by Home.packagesear.ch without your permission, you must realize that this browser hijacker requires removal. But if you let it in yourself, you probably think that it is a harmless search engine that makes it easier for you to track your packages. If that is what you think, you need to continue reading this report. Our researchers at Anti-Spyware-101.com have recently researched this suspicious search tool, and it was found that its services are not very transparent or reliable. In fact, by interacting with this hijacker, you are more likely to open up security backdoors than gain something. Due to this reason, we strongly recommend deleting Home.packagesear.ch. If you are not sure that this is the move you should make, you need to ask yourself why the hijacker redirects to Yahoo Search without your permission, and why the results displayed are modified. Unfortunately, it seems that this hijacker could be used to collect information about you and then expose you to unpredictable third-party links. Read more »

Games.onesearch.org

Games.onesearch.org

Games.onesearch.org is a search engine that can be spread by deceptive pop-ups and bundled software installers. The search engine can be set as the default search engine and home page of the Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer browsers if you do not keep the system protected, or pay no attention to the details displayed by the software installer. Due to the fact that the changes are very often made surreptitiously or without an apparent warning, this type of behavior is called browser hijacking, and the very search engine is referred to as a browser hijacker. Our team at Anti-Spyware-101.com recommends taking action immediately once unsolicited changes are noticed in order to prevent unexpected consequences regarding those changes. It is highly advisable to remove Games.onesearch.org, that is, to fix your browser settings so that you do not end up suffering malware attacks and data loss. Read more »

Search.htextfrompc.co

Search.htextfrompc.co

We do not think that there are users out there who set Search.htextfrompc.co willingly on their browsers. It is more likely that this search tool replaces users’ default homepages on their browsers due to the entrance of a browser hijacker. Unfortunately, it is compatible with all browsers, including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox, so if you get infected with the browser hijacker, your all browsers’ settings will be altered. There are two types of users: those who notice the changes applied to their browsers but do not do anything about that and those who do not want to see Search.htextfrompc.co open for them. We hope that you belong to the second group of users and go to remove this Polarity Technologies Ltd product from your browsers today. Of course, this search tool is considered unreliable not without reason. It has several drawbacks that make it one of those untrustworthy search providers. The last paragraph will tell you more about it, so continue reading! Read more »
