How does best-found.com work?

This search engine usually changes the user’s default search engine and home page into best-found.com as soon as it enters the system. You will not be able to undo these changes, because the hijacker adds the shortcut to the properties of your web browser. Until you delete best-found.com, you will be forced to use it each time you open a new tab.

The peculiar thing is that this search engine does not do any searches by itself. Your search queries are directed to Yahoo or Google which should be safe. Unfortunately, this hijacker alters the provided search results by adding advertisements that are marked “Ad related to [your search query]“. We recommend to avoid these ads, because there is no guarantee that they will send you to trustworthy website and the hijacker is not responsible for any contents presented in these advertisements.

As if that would not be enough, this hijacker slows down browser’s speed considerably and you will have to get used to constant waiting for a new page to upload. This browser hijacker also violates your privacy. It tracks your online activities and checks your browsing history. Sometimes it even manages to gather your personal data. We strongly suggest to terminate best-found.com.

The browser hijacker usually is installed together with freeware from unreliable sites. It is noticed that this hijacker travels with audio or video players, download managers, PDF converters, etc. When installing free of charge software select Advanced or Custom installation. This way you will be able to control installation process and to uncheck boxes with additional applications. If you choose Quick or Recommended installation then it is not surprising that the hijacker manages to enter your system. Be especially careful when downloading from softonfire.com, since the hijacker is installed silently when you are downloading from them.
