Hotsearchresults.com was created by the same people that created Searchingrightnow.com, Reeturn.com, Resultforquery.com, and other hijackers that we recommend removing. Some of these hijackers do not work at all, but even the ones that appear to work are useless. The search results shown to you are modified, and they are meant to promote third-party services. This is why every time you click the button routing to the next search results page you will find the same links. Hotsearchresults.com also fails to show useful photos, videos, news, or shopping results. Although most users will realize that they need to delete this hijacker as soon as it corrupts their browsers without permission, there is no doubt that the rest will initiate the removal as soon as they find that this hijacker does not work as a useful search tool it claims to be. On top of that, this infection can record information about you, which is why you should not postpone the removal operation.
