Search.searchlfff.com

Search.searchlfff.com is one of the newest Polarity Technologies Ltd. search tools. It has been developed on the same template as Search.yourpackagesnow.com, Searchyouremailnow.com, and Search.yourinterestscenter.com, and, just like these search engines, it does look like a legitimate search provider. Unfortunately, the appearance is not everything, so it would be dumb to keep this search tool and use it to perform web searches just because it looks reputable. Specialists at anti-spyware-101.com are sure that Search.searchlfff.com is not exactly what it seems to be. In other words, it is not a legitimate search tool users should use for web searches, they say. They have put this search engine under the browser hijacker category instead because it makes specific modifications on users’ computers resulting in the altered settings of Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome without their consent. It is not the only problem with this search tool. The next paragraph of this article will tell you more about it. The knowledge you acquire should help you to decide whether to delete it or let it stay. Read more »

Sowin8.com

Sowin8.com

Sowin8.com is a search engine which also falls to the category of browser hijackers.  The search engine could be set as the home page of the Internet Explorer, Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox browsers in several ways. Browser hijackers are usually distributed by software setup files and phishing emails distributing fraudulent email attachments. Hence, it is crucial to always pay attention to the information provided by software installers or prompt warnings.

Sowin8.com belongs to the browser hijacker group ELEX, which also includes luckystarting.com, amisites.com, trotux.com, and some other hijackers. As well as its counterparts, Sowin8.com does not have any outstanding characteristics, so the changes made on browsers may remain unnoticed by inattentive computer users, which is highly appreciated by cyber criminals. The longer the hijacker remains on a browser, the more benefit it gets for its authors. Our team at anti-spyware-101.com highly recommends that you remove Sowin8.com from the computer, which you can do with the help of a removal guide provided at the very end of this review.
