Hey, is there anybody can help me here, I’m in a trouble now! Here is the thing, there’s a problem with my computer, my antivirus program just told me that my Internet Explorer were hajackered by Mysearch, I try google chrom, it was also infected as well, and the antivirus program cannot do nothing about it! I don’t remember how I got this hijacker, I think that’s because I click some malicious link unconsciously while I browsing some news. What’s worse, I don’t know why, after this redirect intruded my computer, the system running speed became slow, I believe this is a big problem, please help!
Brief Introduction to Mysearch Hijacker
Mysearch, well, when I first saw this name, I guess it’s probably a fake search engine which means that’s a hijacker. It can infect all the installed web browsers like Internet Explorer, Firefox and Google chrome once it hits the target, totally mess up, none of the single one can work normally!

Mysearch Hijacker is classified as a redirect, it disguises itself as a search tool, at the first blush, it’s no different like the famous ones like Google, Bing or Yahoo, and the page look pretty nice, some people might think that MySearch is a reliable and powerful search engine, I can tell you here, they are dead wrong. It’s not just a fake search tool to make fun of people, it could also harm you computer. Whatever you type in this fake one, you’ll get what you want; it will redirect you to many other sites which are malicious, endless popup ads and banners come out from time to time, the sites it leads you are all about commercial info, these could be a very annoying experience to victims, and I can tell you there are more downside of this redirect could even drive them crazy. Once installed in system, it could take over the browsers without permission, that’s not the end; it may probably download a bunch of malicious and unwanted software when you do not pay attention, I can use this to explain why some victims wonder why their computer run slowly after that. Those unwanted programs, after they mounted, they will run themselves silently in the back ground without letting you know, even you notice them, it’s hard to terminate the programs, that’s because your registry settings and other important windows system files had been changed, and your computer cpu usage had been highly taken up from them all the time, all these could lead your computer to a poor condition, then this is easy to explain why is the system running slowly. It’s no help to reboot the system, same thing happen, many other useful software like Word and Excel are out of launch, as you can see from the cpu usage, there’s no room for other programs to run, It depend on how long they ignore the problem, it can cause a complete computer crash later!.
What’s more, for some people, above downsides will not be the worst, some MySearch infections contain Trojan and key loggers which can be used to steal sensitive data like passwords, credit card, bank account information private photos etc. Maybe someday, you’ll found your picture or personal video release in the internet or the money in your credit card is missing, then you would think to yourself, how was that happen, actually the cyber criminals who made this whole thing already take advantage of those poor guys. I think I have the obligation to remind all the victims, don’t put yourself in a dangerous situation, try to remove this hijacker at once! For the safe of you and your computer, please remove this hijacker at once!
