What kind of infection are you dealing with

SearchAnyGame is considered to be a browser hijacker, an infection that will change your browser’s settings without authorization. Free applications usually have some type of items attached, and when users do not deselect them, they permit them to install. It’s important that you are attentive when installing applications because otherwise, you won’t be able to prevent these types of threats. While browser hijackers are not high-level infections but their behavior is pretty suspicious. The hijacker will perform modifications to your browser’s settings so that its advertised web pages is set as your home website and new tabs. Your search engine will also be modified, and it could inject sponsored links among the real results. You’re redirected so that the site owners can make profit from traffic and advertisements. You should also be aware that if you get rerouted to a malicious website, you can easily pick up a severe infection. The malicious software contamination is not something you want to deal with as it could cause serious damage. You might consider hijackers useful but you can find the same features in real extensions, ones that will not try to redirect you. You might encounter more content you would be interested in, and it is because the hijacker is following what you search for, collecting information about what you are interested in. Unrelated third-parties might also be able to access that data. Therefore, erase SearchAnyGame, before it can do any harm.

What do I need to know about these infections

You possibly came across the hijacker unknowingly, when you were installing free programs. Since these are very annoying infections, we very much doubt you got it knowingly. This method is effective because people tend to rush installations, not reading anything, and in general just being pretty careless during software installation. In order t0 stop their installation, you need to deselect them, but because they’re concealed, they might not be noticed by hurrying the process. By choosing to use Default mode, you could be permitting all kinds of unnecessary items to install, so it would be best if you didn’t use them. Choose Advanced or Custom settings when you are installing something, and added items will become visible. Deselecting all the items would be the best choice, unless you want to have to deal with unfamiliar installations. Only continue installing the program after you deselect everything. Dealing with these infections can be aggravating so you would save yourself a lot of time and effort by initially stopping them. You’re also suggested to not download from suspicious sources as they’re a great method to spread malicious software.

You’ll see soon after infection if your PC was infected with a redirect virus. You’ll notice alterations carried out to your browsers, such as a weird web page set as your home web page/new tabs, and the browser hijacker won’t request your specific permission before carrying out those alterations. Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox will be included in the list of browsers affected. And until you uninstall SearchAnyGame from the system, you’ll be stuck with the web page loading every time you open your browser. Don’t waste time attempting to modify the settings back since the redirect virus will just overrule your changes. Redirect viruses also change default search engines, so it wouldn’t be surprising if when you search for something through browser address bar, a strange page will greet you. You might happen upon advertising content among legitimate results, since the infection’s prime goal is to redirect you. Hijackers are frequently implemented by website owners to boost traffic and make more profit, which is why reroutes are occurring. With more users visiting the website, it is more likely that the advertisements will be interacted with, which makes profit. Those pages are often rather obvious because they obviously will be unrelated to what you were actually searching for. In some cases they could seem legitimate in the beginning, if you were to search ‘virus’, websites promoting bogus anti-virus might come up, and they might seem legitimate initially. Keep in mind that browser redirects might also lead to infected websites, where you could encounter a severe infection. Redirect viruses also like to follow how users use the Internet, gathering certain data. Read the Privacy Policy to find out if unknown third-parties will also gain access to the information, who might use it to make advertisements. The information could also be used by the hijacker to make content that you’re more prone to pressing on. We advise you to terminate SearchAnyGame as it will do more harm than good. Since the browser hijacker will no longer be there to stop you, after you complete the process, make sure you undo the reroute virus’s performed changes.
