We cannot stress enough how important it is to research the software before installing it. Otherwise, you might let in Ourluckysites.com and other programs that are not only useless but also potentially dangerous. This browser hijacker might corrupt your browser by replacing the homepage without your permission, but it is more likely that you will let it in via software bundles. Have you found it set as your startup page after installing something else? If that is the case, you might have been careless with the installation process. Unfortunately, the hijacker often spreads bundled with malicious infections, and so it is possible that much more serious threats have invaded your operating system. Obviously, it is crucial to remove all threats, but, in this report, we focus on deleting Ourluckysites.com. This browser hijacker is a serious threat, and, considering that it does not offer beneficial services either, you should not postpone its elimination for another moment.

Our research has revealed that Ourluckysites.com is a clone of InitialSite123.com, Funnysite123.com, Myhomepage123.com, and many other browser hijackers that belong to the family known by the name “ELEX.” All of these hijackers share the same interface of a search engine. In the middle, of course, there is a search dialog box. At the top, the user is presented with Web, Images, Videos, and News search tools, using which the desirable content should be found. At the bottom, buttons routing to License, Privacy, About, and Uninstall pages are displayed. Also, there is a feature allowing the user to choose a different language. Overall, just by looking at the interface, Ourluckysites.com looks like any regular search tool. Of course, if you check the Privacy Policy, you can learn that this hijacker uses tracking cookies and that it can record the information you share when buying products or signing up for services. This is one of the reasons to remove this hijacker because you do not know how it will handle information that might even identify you.

Surprisingly, the worst thing about Ourluckysites.com is its search service. It redirects to a Yahoo Search engine, search.yahoo.com, but the results shown can be adjusted to include advertisements and sponsored links that are associated with the hijacker. Needless to say, the infection exploits a well-known search provider only to make users think that the results shown to them are legitimate. We cannot claim that all advertisements shown to you will be malicious, but you have to beware of those. It is likely that most links added by Ourluckysites.com will be used to boost traffic to unpopular websites in order to earn a profit using the pay-per-click system. Needless to say, we recommend using Yahoo Search without unreliable hijackers attacking sponsored links. It should be obvious by now that the hijacker is useless and that it deserves immediate removal.

Have you ever reset your browser? By resetting it, you restore homepage, search provider, and New Tab tools to default. You also eliminate tracking cookies, clear cache, and delete browsing history. Considering that Ourluckysites.com can add its own tracking tools, we strongly advise resetting your browsers right away. If you are having trouble setting the desired homepage and default search provider afterward, comment down below, and we will assist you shortly. In case you are unable to completely clean your operating system from malware, or if you are unsure if you can keep it clean in the future – and you must remember that much more dangerous malware exists – it might be high time you installed an anti-malware tool that could provide you with full-time protection. If you have any problems or questions, we welcome all questions in the comments section.
