Despite the fact that Search.searchraccess.com looks like a decent tool for searching the web, it is known to be an untrustworthy search engine that users often find set on their browsers without their consent. Because many people do not know anything about the changes applied, Search.searchraccess.com is classified as a browser hijacker by many researchers. Specialists working at 411-spyware.com also say that it is an untrustworthy search tool that takes over the most popular browsers (it is compatible with Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox) so that it could then promote third-party websites and generate money for the developer. Unfortunately, Search.searchraccess.com has definitely not been released to help users find what they are looking for on the web quicker and thus improve the experience of the web searching. To be frank, this search tool is not only quite useless, but also, as has been found by researchers at 411-spyware.com, might put the system in danger. Read the report to find out how such a harmless-looking search provider can do that.

First of all, let’s talk about the drawbacks of Search.searchraccess.com. Researchers have conducted research to find out more about this search engine. What they have found has confirmed that Search.searchraccess.com is not a trustworthy search provider. Specialists have observed that this tool is going to provide a bunch of commercial advertisements to users. They usually appear in the form of ordinary search results, so it is not at all surprising that people do not know that they click on commercials. These promotional links might be based on the entered search query, but, in most cases, they promote web pages that are not associated with the keyword entered in the search box by a user. Consequently, it takes more time for users to find the information on the web. As can be seen, instead of improving the web searching experience, Search.searchraccess.com diminishes it to a great extent. It is not the only problem associated with these links promoting third-party websites. Specialists say that it is quite dangerous to click on them because these links immediately take to promoted web pages. Be cautious because not all the websites are good. Some of them might have an infectious content. You will not be informed about that before entering such a website, so you really risk causing harm to your PC by using and keeping Search.searchraccess.com. Go to remove it right now to protect your computer from harm. It is advisable to get rid of it also because it does not respect the privacy of users. After checking the Privacy Policy document of this search tool, specialists are sure that it can cause problems associated with the privacy since it is going to record the so-called personally identifiable information. Even though it is not going to do that directly, i.e. personal details will be gathered as belonging to non-personally identifiable information (“search queries that may contain personally identifiable information”), it is still quite dangerous to let it record these details and share them with third parties, so you should stop it soon.

As has been found, Search.searchraccess.com is usually spread bundled with free applications from third-party websites in software bundles. Users, of course, do not know that they agree with the changes by downloading and installing a free program from the web. When this browser hijacker successfully enters the computer, it finds the Start Page Value in HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main and rewrites its Value data to change the settings of Internet Explorer. Also, it finds the prefs.js file containing information about users’ preferences in %AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\{symbols} and modifies it to appear on Mozilla Firefox. Finally, three files belonging to Google Chrome (Preferences, Secure Preferences, and Web Data) are modified as well. To undo all those changes applied, delete Search.searchraccess.com. Do not forget after doing that to install a security application to protect your PC from browser hijackers belonging to the same family, e.g. search.yourmapscenter.com, search.searchlttrn.com, and search.yourclassifiedscenter.com.

Go to delete Search.searchraccess.com right now to be able to set a new trustworthy search tool you could use without fear. It should be possible to get rid of it by resetting all browsers to their default settings. If you wish to delete all other threats from your PC too, we suggest using an automatic malware remover, e.g. SpyHunter. It will find and delete other untrustworthy programs too next to the Search.searchraccess.com browser hijacker.
