Esurf.biz is not a new search engine; in fact, it is identical to Your-home-page.net and Yourwebing.com, which are both known browser hijackers. That means that if Esurf.biz is the page that “says hello” to you once you launch your browsers, it is quite certain that your browsers have been hijacked. And that is a serious act against your privacy since all the settings, including your home page and default search provider, have been changed without your knowledge and consent. Why would you keep such a tool on your computer? Removing Esurf.biz, however, may only be the first step in making your PC secure again. There may be other infections lurking around if this hijacker is on-board. For the details, please continue reading.

There are two things we cannot say in connection with Esurf.biz; first, that it is a useful search engine, and two, that it can present you with potentially dangerous third-party ads. Nevertheless, this hijacker might be able to alter the search results even if it uses a redirection to Google.com. So, practically it is like a mediator – totally redundant. What also raises questions about the reliability of this search engine is that you cannot find any legal document on its page; and that is rather suspicious. What are the developers hiding? What are the capabilities of this search engine? What might happen if you keep using it? What might you be exposed to? These questions could be answered by an EULA or a Privacy Policy. Since these traits make Esurf.biz rather questionable, we certainly recommend that you remove it from your computer as soon as possible.

Things only get worse when you realize that this hijacker may have slithered onto your PC in a downloader packed with malware infections. You need to understand that you can actually save yourself the headache of fighting infections if you refrain from visiting unfamiliar and unreliable websites, especially freeware and other file-sharing sites. It is quite easy to run such a bad downloader and allow malware onto your system, which is similar to taking a shower of hot lava. All you need to do is click on a fake button or link. Once you install such a package, you may be facing several infections that may be threatening your operating system’s security. It is important that you do not only delete Esurf.biz, but take care of all the other related malware threats, too.

This is a tricky and intrusive browser hijacker, no matter how innocent it might look with its plain design and easy-access links below the search box. You cannot remove it by uninstalling it via Control Panel since it does not infect your system itself. Esurf.biz changes the Target line of your browsers’ shortcuts and that is how it makes sure that every time you start up your browsers, the home pages will always be Esurf.biz, no matter how hard you try to restore your browser settings. That is why the first step in getting rid of this hijacker is to overwrite the Target lines. Once you are done with that, you can reset your browsers. If you need assistance with the rest of the potential infections, we recommend that you install an antimalware tool that can take care of all your security issues and effectively protect your PC.
