If the home page of your Internet browser has been changed to websearch.searchdwebs.info, you are dealing with Searchdwebs. Even though the application is often treated as a browser hijacker, it would be more just to categorize it as PUP – a potentially unwanted program. Even though the program may change the default search engine and the home page of Google Chrome, Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox browsers, the modifications are usually performed with the user’s consent. If you believe that the modifications have been performed illegally, you need to think about the installation process. Were you careful? Did you read every piece of information provided to you? If you are certain you have – then you need to delete the browser hijacker which has corrupted the system. Of course, you can delete Searchdwebs even if you simply do not want it running on the system for any longer.

The most suspicious action related to the Searchdwebs search engine is the automatic redirection to the search.whitesmoke.com. This search engine does not look suspicious at first sight; however, soon enough you should notice that advertisements are displayed at the top, the bottom and the right sections of the search results page. Needless to say, this signals that the search engine is supported through third-party ads, and you should not trust it with authentic information. You should also be careful with the adverts presented to you on websearch.searchdwebs.info and provided by weekly-contest-winner.net.
