In non-techie terms:
Myluckysurfing.com might look like a reputable search provider, but it surely is not. It cannot be called trustworthy because it arrives on PCs in software bundles and then changes browsers’ settings without permission. Additionally, it cannot be trusted because of all these sponsored search results it presents to users. No doubt you will delete Myluckysurfing.com, but we want to remind you that it is not enough – other active malicious applications must be deleted from the system too.
