Do you know what Eanswers.com is?
If Eanswers.com or any of its variations appear in your browsers as your home page, new tab page, or default search engine, it is quite likely that you have been infected with a browser hijacker or a potentially unwanted program has slithered onto your computer. Of course, it is also possible, in all fairness, that you actually visit this website by entering its URL or by clicking on a link that takes you there. Thus, we also need to mention that this website looks totally fine and legitimate on the surface. It offers you different categories to search and lots of Q&A content as well as potentially unreliable third-party advertisements. But no matter how useful or reliable this website seems to be because our researchers have found that it may host other variations, i.e., identical search engines that can provide you with questionable search results, which should be enough for you to want to remove Eanswers.com from your computer. Please read are full report to learn how you may infect your computer with threats that can be responsible for such exposure and how you can eliminate them, too.
Of course, you can be exposed to this website by simply visiting it, i.e., typing its address in your browser address bar or clicking on a link that takes you there. These are legitimate ways for ending up on this site unless you are taken there by malware hiding on your system or a corrupt third-party ad or link offered by a suspicious website operated by cyber crooks. Unfortunately, there are several variations to this domain that serve as search engines and have been labeled questionable to say the least. So you may find that your home page, new tab page, and defaults search engine settings have been set to one of these domains, such as movie.eanswers.com, music.eanswers.com, play.eanswers.com, and games.eanswer.com. In this case, it is quite possible that your system has been compromised and infected with a browser hijacker or a potentially unwanted program like VideoCenter Search, FilmsApp Search, and ArcadeCenter Search.
In order for you to be infected with such browser extension that can set up this website or any of its variations in your browsers you need to download and install a free software bundle. This software package is usually dropped in questionable ways. This means that you need to visit suspicious file-sharing websites to download free programs or click on unsafe third-party ads while browsing. You can also be introduced to an increased number of questionable third-party content if your computer is infected with, for example, adware applications. This is why it is so vital to make sure that your PC is clean at all times. And, this is why we advise you to use a reliable malware scanner to detect all possible threats right after you delete Eanswers.com, i.e., the possible threat source that is responsible.
We would like to make something clear. Just because there are different questionable search engines hosted on the same domain, we cannot claim that Eanswers.com has malicious intentions. In fact, this website has quite a high ranking, which means that lots of people seem to use it or link to it as well. Still, it is important for us to tell you why we do not advise you to use it or its variations. If any of the subdomains appears on your computer because a hijacker or a potentially unwanted program changed your browser settings either with or without your knowledge, this could mean multiple malware threats being present on your computer. In addition to that, you could be presented with modified search results on a seemingly reliable Yahoo search results page. This page may contain questionable third-party ads and links since this may be the only way for a search engine to generate revenue for its creators. However, clicking on third-party content is always risky when these third parties may not all be trustworthy. If you do not want to experience any symptoms and consequences, we suggest that you remove Eanswers.com and all possibly related threats as well.
When you are exposed to this page by simply visiting it on purpose, you may not actually need to remove it as it may not present any real or direct danger. However, when malware threats may be involved, it is important that you reset your browsers to get rid of all questionable browser-related threats posing as browser extensions or questionable settings. Please use our guide below if you do not know how to reset your browsers. It is important to remember that there could be several threats on your computer and you may not be able to identify them all manually, let alone eliminate them without leftovers. Therefore, as an alternative solution, you could also use a reliable anti-malware program (SpyHunter) that could automatically protect your PC against all present and future threats.
