Do you know what Download-Offer.com is?
Download-Offer.com “aims to provide the ultimate online search experience” as this search engine is promoted on its website, yet this supposedly “advanced technology” appears to be down for some reason. Still, it is possible that you notice this page in your browsers as your new homepage because, in fact, it is a browser hijacker. This malware infection, when working, has only one goal and that is definitely not providing you with legitimate and fast search results. Instead, this hijacker is used to promote affiliated third-parties through its made-up search results to generate traffic to their sites. Therefore, it is a totally unreliable tool that you should remove as soon as you find it in your browser. Of course, right now, since it is not working, it may not be your biggest worry. But let us not forget about the rest of the infections that this hijacker may be distributed with in the same bundle. Also, just because it is currently “out of order” it does not mean that this search engine will not be put back in business.Download-Offer.com screenshot

Unfortunately, if this hijacker has found a way to your computer, it had to come in a freeware bundle. According to our researchers, these bundles may be rather detrimental to your system health since they can be packed with a number of malware threats. Installing such a package may slow down your computer and keep you distracted with annoying third-party ads while you go surfing the web. An infected bundle most commonly may contain adware apps, browser hijackers, and potentially unwanted programs as well. All of these threats may be able to introduce you to unreliable web content. Therefore, it is important to eliminate all of these potential threats once you delete Download-Offer.com.
Even if this search engine is up and running, you can never be sure if you can trust any of the search results it provides you since they may be modified by this hijacker. Its presence on your computer can only lead to more infections and potential online scams. If you would like to manually take care of this infection, we advise you to uninstall it through Control Panel. You can use our instructions below if you do know how to do that. Also, remember that your PC will not be perfectly safe until you eliminate all the threats.
