Adoreseach is a website that looks like it offers reliable function. However, it only uses a customized version of a legitimate search engine in order to lure unsuspecting users. Adoresearch is commonly categorized as a browser hijacker, because it can easily override your browser settings, changing your default home page to adoresearch.com. It does not matter which browser is your default one, Adoresearch affects all main internet browsers including Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. It is in your best interest to remove Adoresearch from your computer at once, but it would be even better if you didn’t installed it.
Unlike most of the computer infections Adoresearch does not need to enter your system surreptitiously, because users often download Adoresearch installer file themselves. The download might be triggered when you browse corrupted websites. The application might also arrive at your doorstep bundled with freeware, so be attentive when you install programs you download for free. It might be that you install Adoresearch unwittingly, without even noticing what kind of programs and browser extensions are installed on your computer. Searchqu Toolbar is usually responsible for redirecting you to adoresearch.com website.
Adoresearch is also commonly associated with fTalk application that is a free Facebook chat client. Installing the default version of this software installs Adoresearch as well. Although these programs are not related to malicious infections, taking over your browser’s default home page is not something you would appreciate.
When Adoresearch takes over your browser, it also redirects your searches. It might seem that you are about to click a link to a website that you were looking for, but instead of that Adoresearch sends you to a totally unrelated web page that could easily be related to malware. Although this application is not a virus on its own, you cannot overrule a possibility that hackers can exploit adoresearch.com to distribute malware. Not to mention that Adoresearch also comes with a toolbar that contains shortcuts to such social networking websites as Facebook, Twitter or YouTube. It is supposed to improve your Internet browsing experience, but we can obviously see that this application interferes with your browsing habits rather than enhancing them.
