Although your permission is required for Search.HolaInput.com to take over your Google Chrome browser, we classify it as a browser hijacker as it pushes users into accepting it. This browser hijacker is introduced to computer users by HolaInput, a potentially unwanted program that supposedly can enhance web browsing by guessing the words you are typing. Needless to say, the service of this PUP is quite ridiculous, and it is most likely that it was set up solely for the promotion of the hijacker. This Hongkong Zoekyu Technology Inc. product has certain permissions attached to it. First, you permit this program to read and change your surfing history, as well as the data on the sites visited. Second, you give your permission to modify homepage and search tools. If you do not pay attention to these permissions, you might want to delete Search.HolaInput.com thinking it is a hijacker. Well, even if this search tool is installed with permission, we recommend removing it.
Some computer users let Search.HolaInput.com in after downloading the potentially unwanted program promoted at holainput.com or deskick.com that requires removal as well. Others acquire this hijacker by interacting with malicious installers. Although we do not recommend installing this software at all, it is much better to acquire it from the official source rather than using unpredictable third-party installers. Why? The answer is truly simple: Third-party installers will bundle the hijacker along with third-party programs. Well, what are the chances of these programs being malicious? Unfortunately, they are high. Even if you used the official installer, we recommend running a malware scanner just in case malware was present prior to the invasion of this hijacker. Run a scanner to list all active threats, and aim to eliminate them all. If you cannot do it yourself, employ software that was designed for this purpose.
Advertisement-supported programs, PUPs, tracking cookies, and other kinds of unreliable pieces of software that most computer users pass as unimportant can cause a lot of trouble. Unfortunately, this is the kind of software you might find installed along with Search.HolaInput.com. If you do, make sure you investigate them further to see what kind of damage they are capable of. Needless to say, if you decide to eliminate all malicious programs using an anti-malware tool, you do not need to waste your time. However, if you are trying to eliminate malware manually, it is crucial for you to get rid of the most harmful infections first. Considering that this hijacker is not extremely malicious, it is unlikely that it will be your priority when removing unwanted programs. Of course, you should not underestimate the hijacker, and we classify it as undesirable even if more malicious threats are active.
