What is Websearch.seekplaza.info?
Websearch.seekplaza.info is a browser hijacker that comes from the Websearch family. It changes your settings by replacing your home page and default search engine. The hijacker causes other disturbances as well. It redirects you to unknown pages, fills your browsers with commercials, slows down your system and so on. The hijacker usually comes as part of a potentially unwanted application which gets distributed via freeware and shareware. It is often the case that the computer user does not notice installing the additional program until it is too late. We recommend that you get rid of Websearch.seekplaza.info as soon as you realize you have it on your PC.
How does Websearch.seekplaza.info work?
Websearch.seekplaza.info gets set as your home page and default search provider as soon as the hijacker takes over. The site itself does not have a lot on it. All it contains is a search box, a logo that is somewhat similar to Google and a search button. If you enter a query into the search box, you get redirected to Bing.com. The results may contain sponsored links. Needless to say, if you want to make use of Bing Search, you do not need to deal with the hijacker in order to do it.
Other symptoms that you will notice after the hijacker appears on your computer are the never-ending ads presented on various websites that you visit. Some of these ads may appear especially useful to you, because the program tracks your cookies and records which sites you visit, what you search for and so on. This data is used to create personalized ads. Keep in mind, however, that some of the adverts presented to you are not only useless, but they can also be unsafe. If you click on a fake ad, you will end up on a corrupted page where you could infect your PC, waste your money on non-existent products or be exposed to other kinds of virtual scams. Make sure that does not happen to you and terminate Websearch.seekplaza.info right away.
