My Quick Converter

My Quick Converter is a browser hijacker that will immediately change your browsers’ settings once it enters your computer. Specifically speaking, you will find your homepage changed to http://search.hmyquickconverter.com/. This website looks like an ordinary search tool, but it is definitely not what it seems to be, so you should remove it from all your affected browsers as soon as possible and then start using a new search provider to perform web searches. There are so many other websites that only pretend to be legitimate search tools, for example, search.yourpackagesnow.com, search.yourmapscenter.com, and search.youremailnow.com, so you should never trust a search engine that has appeared on your browsers out of the blue – it is one of the first symptoms showing that a search tool is a browser hijacker and definitely not one of the trustworthy search providers.

Chromesearch.win

Chromesearch.win

Chromesearch.win is promoted as “the search engine that respects your privacy.” Even though it is called Chrome Search, it has nothing to do with Google Chrome, we can assure you, so our only recommendation for you would be to remove it from browsers the second you notice its appearance. Specialists at anti-spyware-101.com say that it might arrive on users’ PCs in software bundles and then change their browsers’ settings, or they might be redirected to Chromesearch.win from a different domain. Chromesearch.win does look like a legitimate search tool at first glance, but we cannot confirm that it is one of the reputable search providers because research conducted by our malware researchers has clearly shown that it has drawbacks. We do not say that this Russian search tool is malicious or that it will start automatically downloading bad applications from the web on your computer, but, in the worst-case scenario, it might still bring you problems by redirecting you to untrustworthy pages. Keep in mind that Chromesearch.win might have any number from 1 to 20 next to its name, e.g. Chromesearch1.win. None of its versions can be trusted fully, so remove this search provider no matter which of its many versions you encounter. Read more »

Citypage.today

Citypage.today

Citypage.today is both a browser hijacker and a potentially unwanted program that is introduced to Google Chrome users as an extension. The name of the extension is “City Page Today Home Page,” and it does not have an official webpage representing it. Instead, the developer, KDS Media, has chosen to introduce it via the Chrome web store at https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/city-page-today-home-page/omjifaanlgiocfonnjlengeomjfhgklg. That being said it is unlikely that all users will acquire this extension from this source. In fact, it is more likely that you have let it in by interacting with an installer carrying a bunch of programs bundled together. Are you absolutely sure that other pieces of software installed along with the PUP are reliable? Instead of guessing or assuming, install a legitimate malware scanner, and let it decide if you have anything to worry about. Obviously, all pieces identified as threats must be deleted, and, hopefully, you will be able to find the guides you need here, on Anti-Spyware-101.com. Right now, let’s focus on the removal of Citypage.today and City Page Today Home Page. Read more »

Search.searchlfff.com

Search.searchlfff.com

Search.searchlfff.com is one of the newest Polarity Technologies Ltd. search tools. It has been developed on the same template as Search.yourpackagesnow.com, Searchyouremailnow.com, and Search.yourinterestscenter.com, and, just like these search engines, it does look like a legitimate search provider. Unfortunately, the appearance is not everything, so it would be dumb to keep this search tool and use it to perform web searches just because it looks reputable. Specialists at anti-spyware-101.com are sure that Search.searchlfff.com is not exactly what it seems to be. In other words, it is not a legitimate search tool users should use for web searches, they say. They have put this search engine under the browser hijacker category instead because it makes specific modifications on users’ computers resulting in the altered settings of Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome without their consent. It is not the only problem with this search tool. The next paragraph of this article will tell you more about it. The knowledge you acquire should help you to decide whether to delete it or let it stay. Read more »
