Searchtab.win – How to remove?
What is Searchtab.win?
Searchtab.win is a yet another browser hijacker that comes from the same company that created Yoursearching.com, Yoursearchresults.biz, and several others. Its main symptom is altering your browser settings, however, it causes other unwelcome changes as well. The hijacker affects all popular browsers, so you will not be able to avoid it, once it gets access to your PC. We urge you to take the matter seriously, because even though it is not a malicious infection, it still diminishes your online security level. The sooner you terminate Searchtab.win, the better.
How does Searchtab.win work?
After finding its way to your computer (in most cases through free software bundles), the hijacker adjusts your browser settings without you knowing about it. It replaces your home page and default search engine with Searchtab.win, the site that appears to be rather similar to other search portals. It has a search box that you can use, but you should know that the results you will get will contain sponsored links. Advertising content will also be found on other websites that you visit. This content is brought to you by the hijacker as well.
Unfortunately, the pop-ups, links, banners, coupons, and other ads that you will constantly see in your browsers cannot be fully trusted. They are not checked by any security scans before they are shown to you, which means that they could be unreliable. Interacting with fake ads could lead to virtual scams aimed at infecting your PC with malware, tricking you into wasting your money or sharing your personal information, and so on. You should also know that some of the adverts will be based on your search and browsing history, so do not be surprised, if you see something especially relevant. In any case, we advise staying away from the suspicious advertisements as there is no way to be sure that they are legitimate. If you wish to eliminate them from your browsers altogether, you will have to delete Searchtab.win completely.
