SearchesSpace.com

SearchesSpace.com

SearchesSpace.com is a new browser hijacker belonging to the wide ELEX family. It has fallen into this category not only because it is based on the same template as other hijackers from this family, but also because it tends to show up on users’ Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox browsers without permission. We have to upset you by saying that there is no doubt that this browser hijacker has entered your computer if SearchesSpace.com is launched for you each time you open your default browser. Unlike other browser hijackers our specialists have analyzed, it does not replace default search providers or New Tab URLs. It only sets itself as a homepage. There are users who notice that their preferred homepages are gone, but there are also users who do not pay much attention to a new website they see. Most likely, you belong to the first group of people if you are reading this article. Specialists at anti-spyware-101.com only have one piece of advice for those users – they say that this page should be replaced with a legitimate search provider because, although it pretends to be a trustworthy search engine, it will not improve the web searching experience in any way.

Due to the fact that this undesirable software that promotes this hijacker may be distributed in questionable ways, it is possible that a couple of malware threats also entered your system along with this infection.
