What is Websearch.helpmefindyour.info?

Websearch.helpmefindyour.info is one of these annoying search engines that may cause unwanted redirections to suspicious-looking websites. Besides, such search sites may travel around in a bundle with cookies that may track users' browsing habits and data that is related to them. Typically, such programs record information about people's mostly visited websites, data that they enter when visiting them, their computers' IP address or location, users' email address information and similar data. No matter that it is considered as personally non-identifiable, we still believe that you should keep it for yourself. Otherwise, you can't be guaranteed that this data won't be sent to unknown third parties. Finally, you may notice annoying ads during your browsing that may be filled with relevant information, which is typically selected according to collected data. After clicking these ads, you may be redirected to unknown websites that are typically seeking to increase their page rank or sales. If you don't want to find yourself on a really suspicious domain, you have to stay away form Websearch.helpmefindyour.info redirects as far as possible. The last thing that you should remember about this search engine is that its search results may be altered. In most of the cases, they have nothing in common with the ones that are displayed by Google, Bing or other well known search engine.

If you have just discovered Websearch.helpmefindyour.info on your web browser and you know that you want to get rid of it, you should know that first thing you should do is to scan your computer with updated anti-spyware. That's the easiest way to detect suspicious files and remove them from the system. They are the ones that are responsible for changes of your homepage and the default search engine. Beware that this can be done on each of your Internet browser (it may affect Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer, but hasn't been noticed on Safari yet).

How can Websearch.helpmefindyour.info hijack my computer?

Redirections to websearch.helpmefindyour.info may start interrupting you right after installing a free program that is related to this search engine. That's because it has been actively spread with the help of bundling. If you want to avoid this, you have to monitor installation of every download. For that we recommend selecting only custom or advanced installation of the freeware because these methods will help you to see what optional components are hiding inside the freeware. If this search engine manages to enter the system, it may modify some of its settings and then may start causing Websearch.helpmefindyour.info ads, redirects, tracking and similar issues during each of your search sessions. Besides, it may slow down your computer and may initiate serious problems when trying to get rid of it.
