What is is yet another useless and potentially unreliable search engine that may appear in your main browsers, including Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Google Chrome. It seems that most of these questionable search engines do not affect Microsoft Edge for some reason. Nevertheless, if you find this page as your new home page in your browsers, you should know that you have been infected with a browser hijacker. And, not only that because this threat rarely shows up alone on your “doorstep.” It is possible that several malicious software installers manage to sneak onto your system in one go. This could seriously make your computer vulnerable to cyber attacks. This is why we suggest that you remove as soon as you can along with all other detected and identified malware infections. According to our malware researchers at, this is the only way you can restore order on your system and feel secure whenever you go surfing the web.test

Where does come from?

Browser hijackers most often travel the web in freeware bundles; this malware infection is no exception. Malicious third-party installers frequently contain browser hijackers and try to install them as default. It might happen without your knowledge, in the background, but even if such browser setting changes are revealed during the installation, you may simply ignore it. These installers tend to be quite misleading for this very reason. Therefore, it is always the safest to read the license agreement carefully and choose the custom installation option if and when offered. If you fail to do so, it is possible that you let several malware infections on board, including adware programs, Trojans, fake alerts, and browser hijackers. Apart from possibly decreasing the performance of your system, these infections may also breach your privacy and expose you to further unreliable third-party content.

You can easily infect your system with such a malicious software package if adware apps have already found a way to infiltrate your computer. Ad-supported programs are infamous for being able to spy on you and flooding your screen with all kinds of fake and unsafe third-party ads. If you click on any questionable ad, you may directly drop a bundle of malware threats onto your machine. This can also be an issue when you are viewing questionable websites that host an annoying number of unreliable third-party ads, such as gaming, torrent, and freeware sites. Although you may not visit such pages on purpose, you can still end up there if, for example, you run a web search on how to download a certain free program or a cracked version for that matter. This is why we suggest that you always use official websites to download software as well as updates. If you want to make sure that your PC is safe to use, we advise you to delete and find a reliable malware scanner to identify all other threats, too.

How does work?

As a matter of fact, you may not spot this search engine page as a malicious threat when you first find it in your browsers upon start up. The main trick of most browser hijackers is that they try to look normal or resembling reputable and popular search engines, such as Google. This search page offers you a dozen languages to choose from a drop-down box next to the search box. This hijacker may display third-party advertisements on its main page, right below the search box. These ads might be unreliable and clicking on them could take you to malicious websites or drop infections onto your system. But this is not the only source of system security threats regarding this infection.

Unfortunately, you cannot use this page for searching the web either because you may be exposed to manipulated search results. Since this hijacker may collect information about your browsing habits, third parties can easily send customized ads and links to your screen, which will be inserted among the normal search results. Therefore, you will not be able to distinguish between a legitimate one and a malicious one. However, if you click on a corrupt ad or link, you can infect your system directly or end up on malicious websites and get scammed by cyber criminals. Since you might as well disclose your personal and banking details on a fake page run by crooks, and thus lose money, we believe that you should remove right now.

How can I delete

There are basically two things you can do in order to eliminate this browser hijacker. First, you can use your browser settings and simply restore the home page settings. Or, second, you can follow our guide below and manually remove all bits and pieces if you feel up to the task. This malware attack, however light it may seem, should prove to you that it is really easy to let malware infections on board if you are not cautious enough. Therefore, we suggest that you keep certain basic web surfing rules so that you possibly avoid similar threats. However, the best for you to do is to safeguard your system with an authentic anti-malware program, such as SpyHunter that can automatically detect and ward off malware attacks.
