Removal Guide

Do you know what is?

Finding a new search engine page like in your browsers as your home page should always raise a red flag unless you knowingly install it. This search engine may look like Google at first sight, but with a fake toolbar at the top. However, this search engine should not be kept in your browsers or used because it can show you questionable contents disguised as web search results. In fact, our researchers say that this malware threat should be removed as a browser hijacker as soon as possible. What is even worse, this hijacker can also come on board along with other malicious software installers and potentially unwanted applications, which obviously increases the vulnerability of your system to cyber attacks. No wonder why we believe that you should delete and all other potential and malicious threats from your PC to make it a secure place again. Please read our full report on this browser hijacker to be able to protect your PC more effectively.

We do not think that you installed this search page on purpose or from an official source since our researchers have not found any website that would offer this tool. In fact, there is a promotional page,, but even this does not provide you with the ability to install this featured search page. Instead, you can find information about the different e-mail clients and some history "lessons" about e-mail in general. The whole webpage looks very primitive and simple. But this is not what makes it even more suspicious. The truth is that there is no EULA, Terms of Use, or Privacy Policy either that would give you some idea about how this tool works and what is its third-party policy when it comes to advertising or sharing collected information. In other words, it is quite risky to use such a tool even if you install it knowingly. This is one of the main reasons why we recommend that you remove from your Removal screenshot

The real problem is cause by the malicious software packages in which we have found this browser hijacker spreading on the web. Such a bundle can easily contain a number of other threats (adware programs, fake alerts, Trojans, ransomware programs, and browser hijackers) as well as potentially unwanted programs. This is why we keep emphasizing that you should try to avoid shady file-sharing pages, and other suspicious sites (online gaming, betting, dating, and porn) that promote questionable third-party banner and pop-up ads as well as fake content (buttons and notifications). One click is enough for you to drop a malicious bundle onto your machine and that can end very badly if you were to install the whole content, which is the usual mistake victims make. If you want to use a safe computer, we suggest that you use a proper malware scanner after you delete from your system.

This is risky search engine that features redundant tools, such as quick links to web-based e-mail clients (Gmail, Yahoo, and Outlook). These are totally useless since you can use your browsers' built in bookmark function whenever you want to have a preferred page one click away on your bookmarks bar. It is always more secure to use built-in functions than third-party tools that can be unreliable and thus risky. This browser hijacker, for example, can promote third parties via advertisements and links inserted in modified search results pages. Do not be misled by the fact that you are redirected to a legitimate-looking Yahoo page. This is a trick schemers use to fool users into believing that they are on a trustworthy page. However, it could be more like a mine field. Clicking on any content there could cause redirections to malicious pages or infections could be dropped behind your back. This is why we recommend that you remove ASAP.

If you are ready to act, you can use our guide below to eliminate this annoying threat. You can also use your browser menus to change the home page settings because this is what this hijacker actually alters. You should remember that it is quite likely that there could be other malware threats and potentially harmful programs on board. This is why we suggest that you install a decent up-to-date malware removal application like SpyHunter. Not everyone is capable of keeping their system clean or in case of an attack, identifying the malicious program. This is why automated security tools are peace of mind for those users who would like to feel secure in their virtual world.
