WebSearchy.com is a search engine which can replace the home page of your Internet browsers, including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. The search engine is distributed by a browser hijacker, which sets the Yahoo search engine as the default search provider. The WebSearchy browser hijacker can be distributed by numerous programs, which means that you should pay close attention to the installation process every time you launch the setup program of any program. We recommend that you remove WebSearchy.com from your browsers because you can retrieve Yahoo search results by accessing this search engine directly.
Do not hesitate to remove WebSearchy.com from your browsers if you have no intention of using the search engine. Do not let the search engine monitor you. Moreover, you should be careful with Yahoo’s sponsored links, which are presented as advertisements. Yahoo declares that they seek to provide computer users with relevant advertisements; however, it is impossible to check every single website which is being promoted by Yahoo. You may be provided with links that take you to insecure websites, and, if you want to prevent system performance related issues or data loss, you should avoid clicking those sponsored links.
The WebSearchy browser hijacker also installs Search Protector, which prevents changes on the browsers. In order to remove Search Protector, you have to remove WebSearchy first, and only then change the settings manually. However, it is highly advisable to implement a powerful spyware removal tool. We recommend using SpyHunter because this application can easily eliminate the browser hijacker, and, most important, safeguard the operating system so that you do not have to encounter similar and even more harmful computer programs. SpyHunter can protect the system against rogue anti-virus programs, Trojan horses, rootkits, ransomware infections, browser hijackers, adware, and many other threats, so act right now if you want to be safe on the Internet.
