Searchpagefix.com Removal Tips
Searchpagefix.com is a browser hijacker that belongs a potentially unwanted application called LookSafe. This program, often classified as adware, was developed by LookSafe LLC. The hijacker that comes as a part of the software constantly redirects you to Searchpagefix.com which is supposed to be a search engine.
Unfortunately, it will not provide you with relevant results and that is why we do not recommend keeping it or its suspicious program installed. If you want to go back to using your regular search tools, you will have to delete Searchpagefix.com.
How does Searchpagefix.com work?
Searchpagefix.com replaces your default search engine and start page as soon as it gets access to your browsers. The website itself has plenty of ads and sponsored links on it. If you try searching for information using the so-called engine, it will also show you advertisements instead of genuine results. We advise that you stay away from these ads as some of them may not be reliable. Clearly, you will not be able to use the engine as a helpful tool.
Searchpagefix.com is similar to other ad-supported sites like allsearches.info, searchfix.info, swellsearch.info and more. These kind of websites are created in order to generate revenue and have no value to the computer user. They redirect you to their sponsors, display annoying adverts, gather data about your web browsing and so on.
The software that the hijacker belongs to, LookSafe, is also not what you would call a valuable utility. It is distributed with the help of bundled software which is why most users do not even realize how it gets installed. The application is supposed to protect you from dangerous websites. What its promotion fails to mention, however, is that every time the program decides that the site is not safe, it redirects you to Searchpagefix.com. If you do not wish to be constantly interrupted by the unwanted freeware, we suggest you remove Searchpagefix.com and LookSafe.
