Home Malware Programs Browser Hijackers Am-15.net


Posted: December 22, 2016

Am-15.net is a website that should serve as a search engine, but its search feature does not work as intended, and its sole purpose might be to promote sponsored ads and affiliated products or services. The start page of Am-15.net promotes exclusively anti-malware software, but the good news is that the applications it promotes are reputable and popular, so visitors of Am-15.net are not at risk of being taken to the websites of illegitimate anti-malware software.

The search field on Am-15.net does not function as you'd expect, and instead of providing several pages of results like Google, Yahoo, and Bing, it only displays five or six top results, some of which may be sponsored links. Although there might not be anything suspicious about Am-15.net at first, users should know that this page may be linked to one or more browser hijackers which, once installed, are programmed to hijack a web browser's settings by replacing the new tab page with Am-15.net.

The good part is that browser hijackers are not dangerous, and they are not associated with any malicious activities. However, the changes they bring to your web browser's configuration may often worsen your web browsing experience and force you to visit websites that you would not otherwise. If your web browser unexpectedly sends you to Am-15.net, then it is likely that this occurrence is caused by a browser hijacker that might have been accidentally installed on your computer. Due to the fact that browser hijackers are not classified as malicious, and they usually don't employ any self-preservation techniques, there are two methods to get rid of them:

  • Identify and remove the extension manually by checking your list of installed browser extensions.
  • Run an anti-malware scanner and let it automatically locate and remove the files responsible for Am-15.net's unwanted presence.
