We have already mentioned tracking tools. These might include web cookies, beacons, pixels, and similar trackers that are used for tacking and recording information. Some cookies, for example, are very malicious because they can collect personally-identifiable information, as well as leak it to unknown, potentially malicious parties. Since we know nothing about the cookies of Searchenger2016.com, we have to consider the possibility of them being malicious as well. The removal guide that we offer does not show how to erase cookies, but that is very easy to do. Open your browser and tap keys Ctrl+Shift+Delete together to open a menu that will allow erasing cookies and clearing cache. This shortcut works on all browsers, but, if you are having issues accessing it, post a comment below. Note that you might be dealing with third-party cookies as well. Some of them could have been downloaded by the hijacker itself. Others could have been installed by third-party malware active on your operating system. Where did this third-party malware come from? It could have been bundled with the hijacker. It could have been installed before that. After all, your operating system is not exactly secure.
It should be clear to you by now why removing Searchenger2016.com is important. The main question, right now, is how you delete this threat. Obviously, the best thing you can do is employ an anti-malware tool designed to catch and remove all threats automatically. If that is not something you even consider doing – and you should if you care about your operating system – you will follow the guide below. If you do not think you can handle these steps, you can also modify the homepage URL directly on the infected browser. If you want us to add instructions on how to do that, let us know via the comments section below.
