What is Eanswers.com?

Eanswers.com is a seemingly legitimate website with a search engine but our malware experts at anti-spyware-101.com say that there are certain questionable traits regarding this search page that makes it potentially unreliable. In fact, this featured search page seems to be spread by potentially unwanted programs that are also categorized as browser hijackers depending on the malware researcher. There is a growing family that includes FilmsApp Search, MovieCenter Search, VideoCenter Search, and GameCenter Search, which all promote this legitimate-looking website or rather, its respective subdomains. So even if this featured website does not cause direct threat to your system, indirectly it may expose you to potentially unreliable third-party content through its search engines, which are, of course, identical clones of each other. Since these hijackers can be spread in questionable ways, it is possible that there are several malicious threats on your system right now. This is why we suggest that you remove Eanswers.com by eliminating all possible threats, extensions, which could be responsible for its presence in your browsers.

Where does Eanswers.com come from?

As we have already mentioned, the most likely way for you to be presented with one of the Eanswers.com search engines is to install a browser hijacker. It is possible to do it directly by clicking on an unsafe third-party advertisement or a corrupt link while you are browsing or searching the web using an unreliable search engine or browser hijacker. In this case, you may not even realize the browser setting changes and this page or one of its variations can be set as your new home page, new tab page as well as your default search engine. Our malware experts say though that it is more likely that you download and install such a threat via free software bundles. A software package can carry several potentially unwanted programs and malware infections alongside legitimate free software. This is in fact how most users get infected with such threats as adware programs, browser hijackers, fake alerts, backdoors, and other Trojans.

To drop such an unfortunate package, all you need to do is land on a suspicious website and click on the wrong third-party content. Of course, when your PC is infected already, you do not even necessarily need to be viewing a shady website because, in that case, you could be exposed to unreliable third-party ads on any website really. We recommend that you generally stay away from certain suspicious websites mostly related to online gaming, betting, dating, file sharing, and porn. These pages usually host lots of potentially harmful third-party ads and even hidden content, which can drop a bundle of threats in the background. This is why we advise you to delete Eanswers.com and to make sure that there are no other more serious threats left on your computer, we also recommend that you run a trustworthy malware scanner right afterwards.

How does Eanswers.com work?

This website really makes you feel that you are on a legitimate Q&A site that offers several categories to search, including Buzz, Entertainment, Health, Technology, and Business. We cannot really say anything bad about the basic functioning and features of this site even though it does promote a number of third-party ads that may not always be reliable. However, our main concern is that this site has certain subdomains (movie.eanswers.com, play.eanswers.com, and music.eanswers.com) that are used by potentially unwanted programs and browser hijackers (as we have said before), and these may display modified search results to promote affiliates. In fact, using these questionable search engines you will end up on a search.yahoo.com search results page that is full of promoted and sponsored content, such as ads and links. The problem is that you cannot know which one to trust or not. So when you click, you may well be redirected to a malicious website for all you know. Ending up on a fake online shop, for example, may cost you a lot since cyber criminals may be able to steal your banking information and drain your account. The least that can happen when clicking on questionable content is that you drop infections onto your system. All in all, we believe that it is best for you to remove Eanswers.com from your computer if it was presented by a questionable browser extension.

How can I remove Eanswers.com?

If you simply ended up on this website while browsing the net, you may simply close your tab or browser window to eliminate any possible threat. However, if there are malware infections on your system, it is important that you take care of them right now. We suggest that you reset your main browsers, including Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer, which may be affected by the threat that is responsible for this appearance of this webpage. Please follow our guide below if you want to do this manually. Otherwise, you may want to consider installing a reliable anti-malware program, such as SpyHunter to automatically protect your PC against all possible threats.
