Although Nuesearch.com should work as a search tool, it is unable to provide you with beneficial services simply because it is unable to gather unique search results for you. Instead, it redirects all your search queries to Google Search, and the search results are opened in a new tab. This means that the suspicious hijacker is not only worthless but is also capable of redirecting to third-party sites, and, of course, these are not the features of reliable and beneficial search software. Most users see no harm in using this hijacker because it represents Google Search, but what regular users might fail to notice are sponsored links. It is possible that this hijacker will modify your search queries, and this could expose you to advertisements and unreliable content. It is not surprising that this hijacker can inject sponsored links because it works with third-party advertisers, and it is possible that the main reason it was created was to enable paid promotional services.
