What is Search-Results.com?
Search-Results.com, also known as Google redirect virus, is a browser hijacker that redirects you to its page every time you open your browser. It can also interrupt your browsing session and redirect you to Search-Results.com for no apparent reason. The program changes your browser settings without your permission and could become quite bothersome. There are various security risks that you take while keeping Search-Results.com on your PC that are explained in detail below. You should remove Search-Results.com from your PC as there is nothing beneficial about the program.
How does Search-Results.com work?
Like any other browser hijacker Search-Results.com usually enters your system through bundled downloads. This is an easy way for an unwanted program to sneak into your PC as it is quite rare that computer users check all installation information. If they did they would be able to deselect the unwanted applications, which is exactly what you should do next time you install free software onto your computer.
Once Search-Results.com is already on your PC it changes your default search engine and home page. The program may also redirect you in the middle of your browsing. This will become annoying very fast. Moreover, your browsers will also be filled with various ads and links. You should not risk clicking on them as they may be corrupted. Search-Results.com is not responsible for the content of these pages so the information presented in them may be false. You could be tricked into downloading malware onto your PC or purchasing something completely useless. Stay away from these ads if you value your computer safety.
Another feature of Search-Results.com is that it tracks your cookies thus recording information about your browsing habits. It will record the sites you visit, the things you search for and so on. Although this information is not personally identifiable you may still not want to share it with third parties. For this and other reasons listed above we recommend you delete Search-Results.com from your computer.
How to uninstall Search-Results.com?
You can complete manual removal by deleting the program via Control Panel and then erasing it from your browsers. However, a more efficient solution would be to implement a powerful malware removal tool (for example, Spyhunter) that would scan your system and terminate all found threats.
