What does it do

You are probably not aware of this but hijackers generally come together with freeware. They are unnecessary and pretty invasive threats, so we doubt anyone would install them otherwise. Because users rarely pay attention to program installation processes, this method authorizes browser redirects and similar threats to be distributed. Pay attention to the process since items are hidden, and by not seeing them, you’re authorizing them to install. Selecting Default mode would be a mistake as they will not authorize you to uncheck anything. Advanced or Custom mode, on the other hand, will make the items visible. Unless you wish to deal with unfamiliar installations, deselect every item that appears. And until you do, don’t continue with the free software installation. Having to deal with these threats can be troublesome so you would save yourself a lot of time and effort by initially stopping them. You also have to stop downloading from dubious pages, and instead, choose official/legitimate websites/stores.

Redirect virus infections are seen right away, even by people who don’t have much experience with computers. Your browser’s settings will be modified, the browser hijacker setting a strange web page as your home website, new tabs and search engine, and it’ll do that even without your explicit authorization. Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox will be included in the list of browsers altered. And unless you first remove Search.searchsresults.com from the PC, the web page will greet you every time you open your browser. Do not waste time trying to alter the settings back because the browser redirect will simply nullify your changes. If you find that when you search for something via browser’s address bar, search results are generated by a strange search engine, the hijacker likely modified it. Clicking on any of those results is not suggested as you will end up on advertisement pages. The hijackers will redirect you because they intend to help site owners earn more profit from increased traffic. Owners are able to earn more profit when there is more traffic as more users will possibly interact with adverts. If you click on those web pages, you will quickly see that they have nothing to do with what you were looking for. Or they might seem real, if you were to make an inquiry for ‘antivirus’, you might encounter results for web pages promoting doubtful products but they may look to be real in the beginning. You ought to also bear in mind that browser hijackers are able to redirect to harmful web pages, ones harboring malware. Hijackers also tend to follow peoples’ Internet activity, collecting certain data. Unfamiliar parties might also access the info, and then use it to make more customized advertisements. If not, the redirect virus could use it to make the sponsored content more relevant. Make sure you uninstall Search.searchsresults.com before more dangerous infections enter.
