Dilyme is a Google Chrome browser extension that will change your default search tool if you ever install it on your PC or it somehow enters your computer without your permission. You could have downloaded it yourself from the Chrome Web Store, or it could have arrived on your computer next to third-party software. Also, some users install this browser extension from some kind of file-sharing website. Since this extension can arrive on users’ PCs unnoticed and change their web browsers’ settings, specialists at 411-spyware.com call it a browser hijacker. If you have already found your browser hijacked too, do not keep the search tool set on your browser because it might expose you to potential threats in no time by showing untrustworthy search results to you. We will tell you more about it in the next paragraph, so if you still cannot decide what to do with it, you should read the provided information carefully. We are sure you will make a rational decision, i.e., remove Dilyme together with its search tool after you read what experienced specialists have to say about it.

The first symptom showing that Dilyme has been successfully installed on your computer is the altered default search tool on Google Chrome. The page you find set as your new search tool might look completely trustworthy, but it is not, our malware researchers are sure. They have noticed that it redirects all users’ search queries to http://vouseat.webcam/dilyme/?sid=1&aid=2&keyword=buy, http://blpsearch.com/search?sid=726&aid=670&src=hmp&p=buy, or other websites before displaying Yahoo! search results. Because of this, users are presented with the modified search results. These are search results that open third-party pages. They might look like ordinary search results at first glance, but you will sooner or later learn how to distinguish them from decent Yahoo! search results – they will not open pages with the information you are looking for. Since you might be taken to dubious pages, we cannot say that it is safe to use the search tool promoted by Dilyme. The only way to remove it from your Google Chrome is to delete the browser extension promoting it. If you do nothing, it will not only continue showing the modified search results that can quickly expose you to potential threats, but it will also collect information about you every day. Luckily, such suspicious extensions like Dilyme usually gather the so-called non-personally identifiable information consisting of such details as IP address, search queries, all the domains visited, etc. Unfortunately, we cannot promise that these recorded details will not be disclosed to third parties. Non-personal details cannot identify you personally, but they might still tell some facts about you, so if we were you, we would not let it record any details automatically. You can put an end to this activity only by disabling it.

Dilyme used to be available at the Chrome Web Store, so you could have downloaded it directly from there; however, if Dilyme has affected your browser only recently, it is very likely that it has found another way to enter your system. For example, it could have arrived onto your PC in a bundle with random third-party software. Also, we are sure there are some users out there who have downloaded and installed this piece of software from the web willingly. Either way, you should not keep Dilyme installed because its search tool will stay set as your default search tool and, if you use it, you might be exposed to potential threats. We can assure you that it is not the only extension promoting a suspicious search tool, so you should be more cautious from now on. On top of that, we highly recommend installing a powerful antimalware tool.

It is not a difficult task to delete Dilyme manually, so you should do this as soon as possible. First, open the add-ons manager, find this extension on the list, select it, and click the recycle bin button. You should follow our removal guide if you need some guidance. If you want to delete it quicker, you should use an automated malware remover instead of going to delete it manually.
