Do you know what Websearch.searchitup.info is?
There are hundreds of unreliable search engines that might appear in the place of your homepage and search provider. Websearch.searchitup.info is one of them; it belongs to the Websearch family and it often acts like a browser hijacker. It is called like that because it can make the unauthorized changes.
