What is might not look like a threat, but researchers report that it is a browser hijacker. Thus, you should not be surprised if it affects your browser without you even realizing it. Usually, such applications sneak in with bundled installers of unreliable browser add-ons, toolbars, etc. It is not a malicious threat itself, but our researchers say it could display ads promoting possible harmful content. As a result, we would not advise using it if you do not want to put your system at risk accidentally. To learn more about the browser hijacker you could review the rest of this article. Also, we should mention we will be placing deletion instructions at the end of this page, so provided you decide you do not want on your computer, feel free to use our prepared steps to remove the tool manually.test

Where does come from?

According to our researchers at, the browser hijacker could be spread via unreliable file-sharing web pages. Also, it might be distributed with bundled software installers, for example, could be bundled with some browser add-on, a toolbar, or other similar applications. Therefore, if you do not understand where it came from, you should inspect the programs you recently downloaded. Keep it in mind they might be unreliable as well, so it would be a good idea to check them. Another thing users should pay attention to is the source where they obtained the bundled installer. If it is some untrustworthy file-sharing website, we would recommend not to revisit it. However, what you still do you should at least be attentive during installation and watch out for bundled applications or employ a legitimate antimalware tool that could help you recognize untrustworthy software.

How does work?

It looks like the main application’s task is to change user’s default search provider, start page, or new tab page to These preferences might be altered on the browsers the tool is compatible with, which are Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome. Our researchers suspect the newly presented search tool could show modified search results. We believe it to be possible because while researching it we noticed the browser hijacker may redirect the user through a particular server and then load results with a custom version of Yahoo search engine. The bad news is, during this process, there is a chance the application could place additional advertising content from its third-party partners.

Since the tool’s End User License Agreement and Privacy Policy papers claim the user is solely responsible for what could happen while using or interacting with third-party ads it might display, we would not be surprised to learn no one reviews third-party content to make sure it is safe. In short, we cannot be entirely sure, but we believe it is possible some of the ads could be possibly malicious. For instance, they may promote other browser hijackers, websites created to distribute malware or sites designed to steal user’s sensitive data. Needless to say, if you do not want to use a tool that might display such content you should remove this search engine immediately.
