If you are searching for a tool that would convert files from and to PDF for free, Pdfconvertsearch.com is not a tool you should trust. Although it might be promoted to you in an attractive manner, in reality, it is good at one thing only, and that is showcasing sponsored content. It cannot even help you search the web efficiently as normal search engines should. Our suggestion for you is to remove this browser hijacker from your operating system as soon as possible, and if you have no idea why that is so, you should continue reading this report. We discuss the distribution and the activity of this threat. Also, we show a few ways that you can delete Pdfconvertsearch.com from any of the browsers that it is compatible with. If you have any questions after reading this report, add them to the comments section so that our researchers could answer them for you as soon as possible.

The distribution of Pdfconvertsearch.com is truly mysterious because this browser hijacker does not have an official installer. According to our research, it is likely to be bundled with other pieces of software that might be unreliable or malicious as well. Unreliable file-sharing websites could promote such bundles, but you might also be introduced to malicious threats via misleading pop-up offers. Needless to say, if you act more cautiously when installing software, you are more likely to evade unreliable programs. At the same time, if you are not cautious, you might invite all kinds of malicious infections. If you do not let in Pdfconvertsearch.com, you might let in Convertpdfsearch.com – which is almost identical to the threat we are discussing – and other infections created by Hopebest Inc. Of course, we are not claiming that the hijacker corrupted your browser without your permission. It is more likely that you were tricked into installing it because you believed it could convert files for free. As you might have figured out by now, it does not work, and that is another reason to remove the hijacker immediately.

Have you reviewed the statement at http://pdfconvertsearch.com/Home/PrivacyPolicy? It is important to check the Privacy Policy before you install anything because this document can reveal certain things. For example, did you know that Pdfconvertsearch.com can record information that is considered personally identifiable? Did you know that it can also obtain information about you via third-party data trackers? Most importantly, did you know that this hijacker serves advertisers? If you enter keywords into the presented search dialog box, you will be shown a normal-looking search results page, but what you might not realize is that the threat also shows sponsored links. Unfortunately, we cannot reassure you that they are trustworthy. On the contrary, we have to warn you that they could be misguiding and even malicious. By interacting with unpredictable sponsored links you could let in intrusive tracking cookies, and you could get yourself exposed to misleading offers and installers. If you do not want to see sponsored content while browsing the web, we suggest deleting the hijacker and applying a trustworthy search tool.

If Pdfconvertsearch.com is present, you should delete it due to the reasons discussed in this report. If that part is clear to you, you only need to figure out how to get rid of this browser hijacker. If you are not very experienced, manual removal might seem daunting, but you should have no trouble eliminating this threat yourself. Of course, if other infections exist, your course of action might change. For example, if serious infections are running, we advise employing anti-malware software to eradicate them.
