What is Search.incredibar.com?
Search.incredibar.com is a browser hijacker that can take over your system if you do not pay attention during freeware installation. If you installed free software without paying attention to the installation wizard, you unwittingly allowed the hijacker to enter your system as well. Once it did, your search engine was replaced with Search.incredibar.com and your home page was switched to Mystart.incredibar.com.
The so-called search engine is associated with such potentially unwanted programs as Incredibar toolbar, MyStart Incredibar, Whilokii, SpeedUpMyComputer and others. If you have one of these applications installed on your PC, that is how you got stuck with the hijacker. If you want to get rid of Search.incredibar.com, you will also have to uninstall the program that it came bundled with.
How does Search.incredibar.com work?
Once the hijacker takes over your settings, every time you open your browser you will be greeted by the Incredibar main page. What is more, this page will appear on your screen no matter which browser you launch as the program is compatible with all of them. The page looks decent enough, although it does have an advertisement right below the search box. If you enter something into the provided search box you will be redirected to Search.incredibar.com that will not show you genuine results. Instead, they will be filled with sponsored links and ads. Clicking on those ads is not recommended.
You may get redirected to Search.incredibar.com for no reason at all. You will also see ads, banners, pop-ups and other types of commercial content that you did not see before. All of this is because of the unwanted program that you installed. Another thing that you should keep in mind is that this commercial data may not be safe. You could infect your PC with malware or other potentially unwanted application even if you click on a corrupted link accidentally. Make sure that that does not happen, delete Search.incredibar.com.
