Do you know what Exciteday.com is?
Exciteday.com is not an exciting search provider because it is incapable of serving the most basic function that search providers are created to fulfill. Our research team has tested this tool and found that it does not provide its users with a useful browsing experience. Instead of showing search results that link to sites answering to your search keywords, Exciteday.com shows the same links over and over again, which suggests that it is just an advertising tool. Even if the links shown do not route to malicious sites, it is clear that the strange search tool requires removal. You can remove Exciteday.com using the tips and tricks presented in this report.
Hotsearchresults.com, Searchingrightnow.com, Reeturn.com, Resultforquery.com, and many other strange Exciteday.com clones are identified as browser hijackers because they change the homepage settings without permission. We do not dismiss the possibility that users will have the option to refuse or accept this search tool, but it is likely that it will corrupt browsers as well. If you find Exciteday.com installed, you must examine your operating system to see if other malicious programs exist as well. If they do, you must think about their removal as well. In fact, you might have to delete the infections installed along with the hijacker before you can delete the hijacker itself.Exciteday.com screenshot
