If you see a new website Webdown-loader.com in the address bar of your default browser when you launch it, it means that a browser hijacker has successfully entered your computer. These computer infections enter systems secretly, but they do not try to stay unnoticed for sure because they change users’ browsers settings immediately. Webdown-loader.com is compatible with all popular browsers, including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox, so if you use any of these browsers, you will find out about your hijacked browsers soon. That is, you will see a new URL set as a homepage, default search tool, and a New Tab page. Do not let this new website fool you – it is not a legitimate search provider even though its interface suggests that it can be trusted. It might cause you a number of problems, for example, malicious software might illegally enter your computer, so take action to erase this undesirable website today. You could set a page you like when it is gone. The necessary information about the deletion of this dubious search tool can be found in the last paragraph – read it attentively from beginning to end.

Let’s find out why Webdown-loader.com is not a trustworthy search tool, according to specialists at 411-spyware.com. First of all, they say that they cannot call this website a legitimate search provider because it can change browsers’ settings without the user’s knowledge – it is a feature all browser hijackers share. Second, it has turned out that its search results cannot be trusted fully either. Webdown-loader.com redirects all users’ searches through Search.securefindersearch.com before displaying Yahoo! search results, so there is a great possibility that it can return the modified search results to users. That is, you might be presented with the search results modified to redirect you to certain third-party pages. These websites will not contain the information you are looking for. In fact, you are taken to them only to increase their traffic rates. The more users click on the modified search results, the more money the creator of Webdown-loader.com earns. Of course, you will not be given a share. Instead, you might only find malicious software on your computer because the modified search results displayed to users promote all kinds of websites, even those promoting untrustworthy software. It is not the only problem that might arise if you use Webdown-loader.com as a default search tool. You might be redirected to pages gathering information about users, their activities, and their machines too. Theoretically, Webdown-loader.com might collect information about you too – untrustworthy search tools often track users and record relevant data about them – but this cannot be confirmed because its Privacy Policy document does not exist.

Research has shown that Webdown-loader.com acts like older search tools, e.g. Search.MyTelevisionXp.com, Search.myinterestsxp.com, and Search.mygamesxp.com. Therefore, in the opinion of specialists at 411-spyware.com, it should be distributed in the same way. According to them, Webdown-loader.com might travel in software bundles with third-party applications. Second, it might be promoted by malicious pop-up advertisements. You might find those ads on untrustworthy pages, but if you close the opened website and still find new ads on your screen after some time, there is a huge possibility that an untrustworthy/malicious application is installed on your computer and performs activities in the background without your knowledge. If you remember clicking on an advertisement before finding Webdown-loader.com set as your homepage, default search engine, and a New Tab page, it is very likely that you will also need to remove an untrustworthy application showing advertisements from your computer next to the undesirable search tool.

Go to reset your all browsers to their default settings if you find the presence of Webdown-loader.com undesirable. Specialists say that this must also be done if you wish to prevent untrustworthy software from getting onto your PC and avoid privacy-related issues. If you find it impossible to get rid of this undesirable search tool manually, use an automatic scanner, such as SpyHunter, to get rid of it. It will also delete those other applications generating advertisements from your computer as well. That is, it will fully clean your system.
