What is websearch.searchsun.info?

Certain browser hijackers are more obvious about the fact that they are about to enter your system, while others are mostly silent about it. No one gets informed when or how the browser’s default home page is changed to websearch.searchsun.info. This browser hijacker gets installed on a computer as a plug-in, but it is very far from being a decent browser add-on. In fact, there is no doubt that websearch.searchsun.info is more annoying than beneficial, so the sooner you remove websearch.searchsun.info from your computer the better. Do not forget to terminate all the other related applications, because websearch.searchsun.info seldom arrives alone.

Where does websearch.searchsun.info come from?

It is problematic to say what the best way to protect yourself from websearch.searchsun.info is, because this browser hijacker may have several distribution methods. It actually looks just like websearch.toollksearchbook.info, websearch.oversearch.info, websearch.searchinweb.info and many other browser hijackers that obviously have been developed by the same programmer.

Websearch.searchsun.info usually arrives bundled with freeware applications, because there is no direct download link available. Therefore, to avoid getting infected with this browser hijacker, you should not download random freeware applications or fake Flash or Java updates from unfamiliar websites. Refer to official software home page only! It also means, that you should avoid clicking various commercial advertisements in file sharing or torrent websites, because this way you could seriously get infected with adware and/or browser hijackers.

What does websearch.searchsun.info do?

Since websearch.searchsun.info is a genuine browser hijacker, the application modifies your browser settings without your permission. Your default home page and search engine are changed for websearch.searchsun.info, and you are bound to have a number of other potentially unwanted applications and extensions installed on your computer. There is also an entry in the list of installed programs related to websearch.searchsun.info, although the entry itself may have a random name. It usually stands for SearchNewTab and could be randomly generated – from SNT to SearCHNewwTab and so on.

However, even if you remove this entry via Control Panel, chances are that your browser settings will not be restored and you will have to do it manually. Keep in mind that the longer you allow websearch.searchsun.info to remove on your computer, the higher is the possibility of getting exposed to potentially corrupted and even malicious content via commercial third party advertisements and random redirections.
