What is Haosou.com?
Haosou.com is a webpage you might find on your browsers one day. Its presence indicates the entrance of a browser hijacker infection. Do not let this page stay set on your browsers because it shows really nasty advertisements which might quickly expose you to all kinds of threats. Not only commercial advertisements Haosou.com shows indicate that this URL is bad. You should never trust domains which show up on your web browsers without permission.
In the case of Haosou.com, it replaces the existing homepage, default search engine, and, in most cases, the New Tab page. It seeks that you see it every day. Despite the fact that it looks like a genuine search tool, do not use Haosou.com to perform searches on the web if you do not want problems to emerge. What you should do instead is to uninstall Haosou.com as soon as possible. We are sure you will not miss it, especially if you cannot speak/read Chinese (this search engine extensively uses the Chinese language).
How does Haosou.com work?
Haosou.com shows up on all users’ browsers, so if you ever get infected with a browser hijacker distributing this website, you will see it on all your browsers, including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. Frankly speaking, you will be forced to see Haosou.com every day unless you go to implement the Haosou.com removal. As you already know, it is a really bad decision to search for the information using this dubious search provider. There is one main reason why it is so – it displays nasty advertisements for users. These ads should not cause any harm if you do not click on any of them; however, if you do, you might quickly end up on pages which contain bad software, try to steal personal information, or just need your clicks to get money. This will make it harder to find the information you are looking for on the web, not to mention that you might end up with malware on your computer. Haosou.com is bad news, so go to delete Haosou.com without consideration.
How did Haosou.com manage to enter my computer?
Bundling is one of the most popular methods to spread Haosou.com, so users usually do not even notice when this infection arrives on their computers. It is spread with freeware to stay unnoticed. This type of malware is not the only one using the bundling method to enter users’ computers, so be more attentive in the future. It would be smart to acquire and install a tool for protecting the computer from harm too.
How can I remove Haosou.com from browsers?
Some undesirable domains disappear after users set a new website in their place, but it is usually not the case with Chinese browser hijackers which install additional extensions or even hijack browsers’ shortcuts. Therefore, we recommend going to implement the automatic Haosou.com removal rather than try to remove Haosou.com in a manual way. To delete Haosou.com automatically, you, of course, need to have a security application, so go to get a reputable one from the web so that you could remove Haosou.com easily.
