Be wary of such websites as Only-search.com, because if all of sudden your home page gets changed for this site, it means that you got infected with a browser hijacker. You may say that this website is nowhere near being a browser hijacker, because the page looks like a genuine and rather user-friendly search engine. Nevertheless, if the website is set as your home WITHOUT your permission, it is an obvious sign that your security has been breached and you need to remove Only-search.com from your system ASAP.

It could be that Only-search.com has been brought upon you by freeware applications, because various medial players or video codecs are often bundled with additional software, especially if you download the said program from third party websites. There they may be coupled with potentially dangerous applications and Only-search.com is one of them. Sometimes user may be even informed about the oncoming browser settings modifications, but the problem is that users often tend to go through the installation process automatically and they totally miss the sections where they are informed about additional software about to be installed on their computers.

What is more, even if Only-search.com is set as your home page and default search engine behind your back, a lot users tend to leave the website be, because it seems to be functioning quite well as a search engine.

Naturally, such perception is debatable, but one cannot ignore the fact that Only-search.com looks just like Doko-search.com and both of these websites are considered potential computer security threats. The main problem related to these websites is the fact that they are full of advertisements. Only-search.com even functions as an advertising platform offers companies to promote themselves by embedding their own content into its advertisements.

If you want to avoid this infection you should steer away from such browser extensions as Delta Toolbar, because Only-search.com is known to be bundled with it. Also, avoid downloading and installing various computer optimization tools (like Cleaner Pro) from third party websites. If you software from official websites, you should be able to avoid potential security threats.

As far as removing Only-search.com is concerned, deleting the programs it came with will most probably not solve the problem at hand. You should reset your browser settings to default and then run a full system scan with SpyHunter free scanner in order to make sure that there are no malicious files or programs left in your system. Invest in a powerful antimalware program if need be.
