Search.searchtzc.com

Search.searchtzc.com

You want to be careful about the search tools you use because many of them are malicious. Although Search.searchtzc.com is not identified as a malicious threat, it certainly is not a trustworthy search provider. If you enter search keywords into its field, you will be redirected to Yahoo Search, and that, unfortunately, is not a good thing. While Yahoo Search is a well-known, respected provider, the hijacker exploits it to showcase sponsored content that the creator (Polarity Technologies Ltd.) might be earning money for. Since redirecting is performed without authorization and the showcasing of third-party links is unpredictable, the search tool is not to be trusted, and that is the main reason Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers recommend that you delete Search.searchtzc.com. The funny thing is that you might not need to focus on the removal of this hijacker. Instead, you might have to find and erase an extension. Keep reading to learn all about this. Read more »
