If you have not encountered a browser hijacker in the past, you might be completely confused as to why Search.easysportsaccess.com replaces your normal homepage or default search provider tools. That is if you did not agree to these changes yourself. If you have downloaded the Easy Sports Access extension from its official download page, easysportsaccess.com/Sports, from Chrome web store, or some other source, you must have known that your search tools would be modified. Despite this, you might be confused still. For example, when downloading the extension from chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/easy-sports-access/noflkibefpjggihoiolndndmgoinklha, users are not informed about any modifications at all. In all fairness, the Chrome extension does not replace search tools per se. Instead, it modifies Chrome settings to show New Tab upon startup rather than your regular homepage. Of course, this is a good reason to remove Search.easysportsaccess.com from your browsers.

How does Search.easysportsaccess.com work?

Search.easysportsaccess.com is a regular hijacker, which means that it changes your browser’s settings to introduce you to a different page and to gain some privileges. Unfortunately, some users think that this hijacker looks like a normal search provider, which is why they often consider it reliable. Would we suggest removing a program that was reliable? Of course we would not. The truth is that this search tool does not work as you expect it, and, instead of showing the results you might be waiting for, it performs redirecting to Yahoo Search. This is done via the extsearch.maxwebsearch.com server. Search.myshoppingxp.com, Search.mydailyversexp.com, Search.mycurrentnewsxp.com, and plenty of other clones act in the exact same way. Although all of these hijackers are associated with different extensions and they might use different files, they are all identical, and Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers believe that they might belong to the same malicious party. Regardless of how this malicious software accesses your browsers – illegally or with your knowledge – you will find it in the same location every time. Firefox users need to check C:\Users\{user}\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\[*]\Extensions, Chrome users will find it under C:\Users\{user}\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default {or Profile}\Extensions, and IE users will locate it under C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Temp\XP.

Fortunately, detecting this hijacker is easy. But what if this infection comes packaged with clandestine malware? According to our research, Search.easysportsaccess.com could be distributed via unreliable installers as well, which means that third-party malware could be attached to it. Hopefully, this is not the case, but you should not take any chances. Although there are several ways to discover malware, we advise running a malware scanner for quick and easy detection. It is imperative that you eliminate all threats even the ones that might look less harmful. If you are not quick to react, malware could take over your PC before you know it. Fortunately, the hijacker itself does not install malware; however, it can leak information about you and your operating system, which is also dangerous. Furthermore, the ads represented via the modified Yahoo Search tool could lead to unreliable sites as well. Needless to say, it is impossible to predict what kind of content could be shown to you. Legitimate links could be followed by ones leading to corrupted sites, as well as malware sites.

How to delete Search.easysportsaccess.com

Your computer must be unprotected. If it was, this hijacker would not have invaded your browsers. Even if you chose to install it, you would have been warned about a potential risk.
