Browserhunt.com is a search engine identical to Mountainbrowse.com we covered some time ago. If you are familiar with Mountainbrowse.com and now see the presence of Browserhunt.com on your Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox browsers, you have probably noticed that they share a bunch of similarities, for example, they both have a nice-looking user interface (UI), the search box in the middle that returns search results, and, finally, they both tend to change the settings of browsers without permission. We agree that they might look handy and completely harmless; however, these search tools are far from trustworthy search engines. The focus of this article is Browserhunt.com, so we will tell you more about it in the article. In addition, you will find out how you can delete it from the system, so read the article attentively.
We cannot consider Browserhunt.com a trustworthy search tool not only because it shows the modified search results and collects information about users, but also because this search engine changes the settings silently. There are two ways this questionable search tool is distributed: it might be spread in software bundles, or it might be set the moment you click on a pop-up advertisement. Security specialists say that users should not see ads on their screens, but if you do, it means that a malicious application is installed on your computer. It is very likely that you see advertisements because you have an ad-supported application (adware) installed on your PC. You need to remove it too once you are done with Browserhunt.com. On top of that, you should also install a reliable security tool not to allow malware to enter the computer.
Browserhunt.com is not very dangerous, but it will not do anything good for you either. To be frank, your privacy might be violated, and you can cause harm to your PC if you let it stay. Fortunately, this search tool can be erased rather easily. Users simply need to reset their browsers one by one in order to eliminate Browserhunt.com. If you have never done that before, we suggest that you use the manual removal guide you can find below the article. A reliable automatic scanner would delete this search tool from all the browsers. If you ask our opinion, SpyHunter is the tool that should be used to remove this hijacker.
