Users who discover that the settings of their browsers have been changed by Searchespro.com have to know that a browser add-on Searches Pro has, most probably, been added to the list of extensions (Internet Explorer might not have a separate extension). This add-on is responsible for changing your homepage and default search engine to Searchespro.com. Since these changes are often applied without a user’s consent, researchers have decided to classify this dubious search tool as a browser hijacker. You should remove it not only because it has been placed under this category. According to specialists at 411-spyware.com, this questionable search provider might even be dangerous in a sense that it can redirect to untrustworthy websites. This is the main reason users have to get rid of Searchespro.com as soon as possible, but, unfortunately, it is not the only one. Continue reading!
The entrance of a browser hijacker promoting the questionable search engine Searchespro.com means that http://www.searchespro.com will be opened for users every time the browser is launched. Since all the browsers (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox) will be affected, setting another browser as a default one is not an effective solution to the problem. To be frank, the only way to make this dubious search tool disappear is to remove it from browsers. Security specialists say that this has to be done as soon as possible because Searchespro.com is not a trustworthy search provider, and its presence might cause security-related problems. We cannot say that Searchespro.com is very dangerous itself; however, it is already known that it might display search results that are unreliable even though it redirects all the searches to Bing (a trustworthy search provider) and displays its search results. It is very likely that the developer of this search engine has created it in such a way that it would still be possible to insert promotional links along the way. Yes, the main drawback of search results shown by Searchespro.com is a bunch of links and ads promoting third-party websites. This activity could be simply called “annoying” if these web pages did not contain malware. Of course, not all the websites users are taken to after clicking on sponsored search results are harmful; however, since it is impossible to say which of them have a potential of causing harm and which are safe, it would be smart to stop using Searchespro.com completely. We promise that you will not miss it because other trustworthy search tools exist, and it is better to use any of them instead.
Users should delete Searchespro.com from their browsers also if they do not want to disclose the important information to the developer of this search engine. Research has shown that it is interested in the following types of information:
As has already been mentioned, it is very likely that Searchespro.com has replaced your homepage and default search engine because a browser extension Searches Pro has been installed. It does not have an official website to download it from, so it is very likely that it has sneaked onto the computer in a software bundle. To be more specific, users install this browser add-on when installing another program intentionally. Of course, they do not know about that. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that you will not encounter another untrustworthy program ever again if you stop downloading applications from the web. The only effective way to protect the system from harm, in our opinion, is to install a security application on the computer and keep it enabled.
Removing Searchespro.com automatically is the easiest way to get rid of this doubtful search engine, but it is also possible to delete it manually. The latter method is not recommended for inexperienced users because it is not that easy to fully eliminate a browser hijacker. These users should go to scan their systems with an automated malware remover SpyHunter. It will quickly delete ALL infections.
