Gold-page.com is known to be a browser hijacker that can affects all the most popular browsers, including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. The main symptom that shows that Gold-page.com has found the way to your computer is a different homepage and search engine. Yes, this search provider will replace them without permission. In this sense, it is very similar to such search engines as bit-search.com and royal-search.com. Unfortunately, the majority of people do not know that it is very risky to keep and use an untrustworthy search provider on a daily basis. If you do not want to be one of those users who infect their systems with malware by keeping Gold-page.com, you should go for its removal as soon as possible. We suspect that you do not know anything about the deletion of browser hijackers if you are reading this article now. Do not worry; security experts at 411-spyware.com have tested this questionable search engine and found how it can be removed. They are going to share their research results with you in this article.

Nobody can deny that your homepage and search engine will be changed if Gold-page.com browser hijacker manages to sneak onto your computer; however, not all people know that this threat will also make other changes. Researchers have managed to find out that this infection will modify the Start Page value in the HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main registry key, modify the prefs.js file in %AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\{symbols}, and will change data of Preferences, Secure Preferences, and Web Data files located in %LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default. In addition, you might find the gold-page.com folder in %PROGRAMFILES% or %PROGRAMFILES(x86)% as well. We are sure that everything will get back to normal if you remove this browser hijacker from your system.

Specialists do not consider Gold-page.com a trustworthy search provider because it is very likely that this search provider is going to provide the modified search results for users. In addition, users might also see advertisements on the main page of this search engine. It is very dangerous to click on those ads and modified search results because they might immediately redirect to third-party websites containing all kinds of infections. These infections might sneak onto the computer very quickly. What is more, researchers at 411-spyware.com have also found that Gold-page.com might also gather information about users because it displays ads based on users’ interests. Nobody knows whether it will treat the gathered information with respect, which is why we believe that this search engine might cause privacy-related problems too. As you have probably understood, it is not worth keeping an unreliable search engine on browsers even though it is capable of providing search results associated with the entered keyword.

As you already know, Gold-page.com is a typical browser hijacker. Actually, it does not differ from other similar threats because it also usually sneaks onto computers without permission. Researchers say that this threat is usually spread in bundled malicious installers, which means that other untrustworthy applications have probably sneaked onto the computer as well. Not all of them are trustworthy, so we highly recommend scanning the system with a trustworthy scanner to find all other threats. Yes, it is possible to do that manually too, but it will not be easy to detect threats because they might hide deep on the system.

If you wish to protect your system from harm and start using a reputable search engine, you need to remove Gold-page.com from all your browsers first. We believe that this threat will disappear from your system after you reset browsers one by one. If it happens that you still see the presence of this search engine after you do that, you should scan your system with SpyHunter. It will find and erase all the components of this hijacker, and thus will make your system clean. This software will also protect your PC from other browser hijackers that are so prevalent on the web these days.
