PortaldoSites.com is a search engine, which is closely related to a browser hijacker. This virus is mostly used to increase the number of website's visitors, so it starts acting up and initiates some secret modifications once it gets inside its target PC. As a rule, first things that are alteredt by this virus are homepage and default search engine. Instead of victim's favorite ones, it leaves portaldosites.com or search.portaldosites.com. We do NOT recommend using this site for your search sessions because it shows forged search results, promotes insecure websites and may also track your browsing habits. Even the License Areement of PortaldoSites.com notifies about that:

This Web site may contain links to other Web sites which are independent of this Web site. We make no representation or warranty as to the accuracy, value, integrity, completeness or authenticity of the information (...).
Furthermore, these links may lead to sites or links that contain offensive and objectionable content or which may contain dangerous computer viruses. You assume, and we hereby disclaim, all responsibility for any of the content on these sites or for any damage sustained by users of these sites.

As you can see, you should avoid PortaldoSites.com because you can't be sure that you won't be forced to visit malicious site. If you see this page instead of google.com or other search engine, you should check your computer for a browser hijacker virus and remove it from the system. Remember, using Portaldosites.com may cause serious problems for you and your computer!

WHY AM I REDIRECTED TO PortaldoSites.com?

Redirections to Portaldosites.com or similar sites start when computer gets infected with the browser hijacker. This virus is spread via illegal sites, spam, malicious pop-up advertisements and similar ways of distribution. Besides, there are some freeware applications that have also been noticed for spreading browser hijackers, adware and unwanted toolbars. In order to avoid that, pay attention to every installation window of the software and unclick unfamiliar entries. As soon as it gets inside its target PC, this redirect virus changes the homepage to portaldosites.com and makes this or search.portaldosites.com  a default search engine. Please, do not ignore these changes and improve your browsing activities by eliminating PortaldoSites redirect virus from the system.
