What is Mysearchresults.com?
Mysearchresults.com is a browser hijacker which is truly compatible with all major browsers and behaves in a similar way to default-search.com, delta-homes.com, qone8.com, etc. It is advertised as an add-on that will somehow improve your browsing experience. Instead, Mysearchresults.com hijacks your browser by replacing your home page and default search engine.
Mysearchresults.com comes bundled with free software and is installed silently. The program is not malicious, but that does not mean you should keep it in your system. We recommend you delete Mysearchresults.com from your PC and return your browsers back to normal.
How does Mysearchresults.com work?
You have most probably installed Mysearchresults.com together with some other freeware application that you found useful. Potentially unwanted programs are distributed bundled with freeware and if you do not pay enough attention during the installation process you will let them get access to your PC. Choose Advanced Installation and you will be able to prevent that next time you install freeware.
If Mysearchresults.com is already in your system your browser settings like home page, search engine and new tab page will be automatically changed. You will not be able to restore these settings unless you get rid of Mysearchresults.com. Moreover, the program will also redirect you to the websites that it promotes in the middle of you browsing the web. Ads nd sponsored links will also become a big part of your Internet surfing experience. If none of these features seem useful to you which they are not you should terminate Mysearchresults.com.
