How does Homepage-web.com work?
Homepage-web.com is promoted as an online search experience that will allow you to get search results from trusted search providers. You will also be able to customize the website and create your own style by choosing backgrounds and colors. Once the hijacker takes over and sets Homepage-web.com as you home page, you will be greeted by a site that has a Bing logo and a search box on it. The page also contains search parameters and links to Privacy, Terms, About and Contact Us. At the lower right corner you will see Settings button which allows you to choose a language and a background. Interestingly enough, when you enter a query into the search box, you get redirected to Google, not Bing. Either way you can use a reliable search engine without the help of the hijacker which means you do not have to keep Homepage-web.com installed.
