Websearch.searchtheglobe.info is an annoying application that is often considered to be a browser hijacker. It modifies your browser settings without your permission and then exposes you to potentially corrupted content. That should be enough to convince you that you must remove Websearch.searchtheglobe.info right now. However, while you are at it, do not forget to run a full system scan with a licensed antispyware tool because this browser hijacker definitely hasn’t arrived at you PC on its own. What we’re trying to say here is that you must have installed more unwanted programs on your PC.

This is another point we would like to make here: Users install Websearch.searchtheglobe.info on their computers willingly. Granted, you probably did not know that you were about to install a browser hijacker on your PC, but since there is no way to download this application directly from the original source (there’s none); it is clear that Websearch.searchtheglobe.info came with additional programs. Our research suggests that Websearch.searchtheglobe.info usually travels in InstallRex installers, and it is most often bundled with the JustPlugIt adware. Some of the programs that this browser hijacker comes with include Optimizer Pro, EZDownloader, YouTubeAdBlocker, UniSales, and many others. If you have downloaded any of the mentioned programs from a third-party source, chances are Websearch.searchtheglobe.info was installed on your computer along as well.

Once this browser hijacker enters your computer, your default homepage and search engine will be changed to Websearch.searchtheglobe.info. Granted, this browser hijacker provides you with search services, but they are not unique because Websearch.searchtheglobe.info makes use of a customized Google search engine to display you the search results. On top of that, it also shows a flash advertisement right below the search box. Websearch.searchtheglobe.info is not responsible for the content of this ad, so if cyber criminals decide to promote unreliable sites through this ad space, the hijacker would not be able to do anything about. It does not care about third-party content security, and it is concerned with generating financial revenue for its creators.

On the other hand, we cannot say that Websearch.searchtheglobe.info is very dangerous by itself. The hijacker is mostly used as a tool by third parties, and if those third parties happen to have some hidden agenda, then you are up for a big trouble.

Rather than risking getting infected with more malware, you need to delete Websearch.searchtheglobe.info right now. Uninstall all the potentially unwanted programs and restore your browser settings to default. To avoid similar problems in the future, get yourself a licensed computer security application.
