Where does PDFConverterSearchHQ come from?

At the moment we are writing this article, PDFConverterSearchHQ is offered on the Chrome Web Store page. It has only a couple of reviews and one of it says that the application does not work and displays lots of notifications. Also, the extension has a homepage that is available on pdfconvertersearchhq.com. Additionally, the potentially unwanted program could be spread through pop-ups and ads. Since its name contains words like PDF and converter, it is possible that it could be promoted via pop-ups or ads that offer tools for file converting. To avoid coming across such tools, we advise staying away from file-sharing websites. Also, users should be more attentive when downloading new tools. Before obtaining any piece of software you should make sure that it has good reviews and that it was developed by a reputable company.

How does PDFConverterSearchHQ work?

The extension settles in on a user’s browser by changing its default search engine with a website of its own. However, users who search via PDFConverterSearchHQ provided search engine might feel as if they are searching via the Yahoo search engine. That is because the potentially unwanted program’s search website might be using a modified version of search.yahoo.com to both collect and display search results. Nonetheless, surfing through the extension’s search website and being redirected to Yahoo might not be the same as searching directly through search.yahoo.com. For instance, the potentially unwanted program could inject the Yahoo’s collected search results with extra ads that might come from its third-party partners. If you do not want to risk receiving search results that could be injected with ads from unknown third parties, we recommend surfing directly through search.yahoo.com. If you choose to do so and do not want to see this potentially unwanted program on your browser, you can erase PDFConverterSearchHQ.
