Agucar.com is not an ordinary search tool even though it seems to be one. Specialists are now sure after carrying out research that it is a typical browser hijacker that might take over your homepage and search page. It hijacks all the browsers it finds installed on the computer the moment it enters the system, so it should not take long to realize that a malicious application has successfully entered the computer. Of course, it does not become clear immediately that Agucar.com is not a trustworthy search tool because it has all the features of a good search engine. Unfortunately, the interface of a search tool or software does not tell much about its trustworthiness, as the experience of specialists at 411-spyware.com has shown. Therefore, you should trust us and go to erase the dubious search engine Agucar.com from all the browsers it has affected.
At the time of writing, Agucar.com does not even work properly. The message “We apologize for the inconvenience, but we weren't able to find results for this query” appears every time the search query is entered no matter in which category the search is performed. If you have found that Agucar.com does not work properly too, delete this useless search engine right now because it will definitely not be a beneficial tool for finding the information on the web. Of course, it is not the only reason you should get rid of it as soon as possible. Researchers at 411-spyware.com suggest eliminating this search tool to stop the activities it performs. It has been found that this search engine collects various details about users and might redirect them to bad third-party websites promoting malicious applications. Of course, this should not happen if you have a broken version of Agucar.com, i.e. the one that does not shows results for search queries. To be honest, it would be best to eliminate this search engine no matter it works as it should or not. If you let it stay, you could not set a new trustworthy search provider.
Agucar.com is not a popular search engine, so we are sure that users do not set this questionable tool themselves on their browsers. The web is full of complaints regarding the presence of Agucar.com as well, which suggests that users find it surprising that it has replaced their homepages and default search engines. Specialists have conducted research to find more about the distribution of a browser hijacker promoting Agucar.com. Unfortunately, not much information has been found, but it is clear that it is spread through bundled malicious installers. It is, of course, not the only component in a software bundle, so users do not even notice when they agree with the installation of a browser hijacker too. Of course, it might also be true that users are not even informed that their browsers’ settings are going to be changed. In other words, theoretically, this browser hijacker could enter computers silently as well.
Browser hijackers are quite sneaky threats that find different ways to reach users’ computers. Therefore, it might not be very easy to prevent them from entering the system. Our first piece of advice for users would be to stop downloading applications from questionable websites. Untrustworthy third-party websites might contain malicious applications or might redirect users to pages promoting undesirable software. P2P clients might be dangerous because of that too, so be careful if you use them. Secondly, users should not forget to install a trustworthy antimalware tool on their PCs too to protect their computers 24/7.
Agucar.com can be deleted either manually or automatically. Of course, the manual method is more complicated because users have to do everything themselves, so we highly recommend erasing Agucar.com automatically. You will need to perform only one full system scan to erase other existing infections too. It might not be easy to decide which scanner to use since there are so many of them available on the market, so our specialists suggest using SpyHunter. It will delete all threats and malicious components detected within seconds, and you will not need to do anything except to launch the scanner and click the Fix Threats button.
