Registration-search.com is definitely not a very popular browser hijacker, but it might still enter your PC, and this has probably already happened if you are reading this article. At first glance, a new search engine might not differ at all from other search tools available on the market because it has a search box in the middle of its start page; however, if you try to enter a search query, you will see that nothing happens no matter how many times you hit the Search button. Links you can find placed under 8 different categories (art, health, business, science, computers, games, news, and sports) on the same start page do not work too, which suggests that Registration-search.com has not been launched yet by its developer, or it does not work the way it should. Of course, it might be fixed one day, so the information provided in this article is subject to change.Registration-search.com screenshot

If you have a fixed version of Registration-search.com that displays search results, you should still not use this search engine as your default search tool. There are two reasons we say so. First, research carried out by our experts has shown that this questionable search tool might provide users with sponsored search results, i.e. results that are not shown for you on the basis of your search query, and their only purpose is to advertise third-party websites. Such questionable search results are put on the same page together with reliable ones not without reason – the developer seeks to make as many users as possible to click on those search results because it gets advertising revenue. Do not expect it to share the money it gets with you. In addition, do not forget that you might cause harm to your PC by clicking on these untrustworthy search results, so ignore them all and hurry to remove the bad search engine from your Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox.
We do not believe that you have set Registration-search.com yourself, so we are sure that this browser hijacker, just like similar untrustworthy search tools from the same family, has hijacked your browsers without permission. In most cases, this happens for those users who often install free software from third-party websites and various file-sharing pages. If you are not going to stop doing that any time soon, you should, at least, install a reputable security application on your computer. It will protect your system all the time, and you will not need to worry about the safety of your PC.
Registration-search.com should leave all your browsers alone if you reset them all to their default settings. If it is your first time, use our manual removal instructions.
