Infospace is an unfair search engine, which may show you altered search results and redirect you to unknown websites. Besides, you may also receive annoying pop-up advertisements when using infospace.com for your searches, and notice continuous slow downs on your browsers. Technically, Infospace should never be called as virus or malware, because it doesn't have a malicious code inside. If it showed up on your computer out of nowhere, that means the only thing – you downloaded this program on your computer together with other application. In this case, we recommend removing Infospace from the system and using more reputable search engines.
