What is Websearch.searchguru.info?
How does Websearch.searchguru.info act?
Even though it is possible to have Websearch.searchguru.info set as the default search engine and home page manually, this is not something any computer users would do. Why? It is because the search engine does not work beneficially. The search engine simply routes you to search.google.com every time you enter a search keyword. Surely, Google is an authentic search provider which you can trust; however, there is a chance that the browser hijacker will route you to a different search engine which could filter search results and trick you into participating in online scams. Even if this does not happen, the malicious browser hijacker is responsible for the pop-up advertisements which will continuously flood your web browsers. It is essential that you refrain from clicking on these adverts because this is a security backdoor which could lead to much more serious security issues.
