Click System Description

Click System Screenshot 1Click System can refer to either a fraudulent search website or a browser hijacker that redirects your online searches to Click System and its affiliate sites. Although Click System may pretend to be a helpful search engine, links from Click System are sorted according to how profitable they are for Click System's web masters without any respect for your computer's safety.

Click System – Getting Its Clicks in the Worst Way Possible

Click System, like other types of fraudulent search engines, doesn't put up much of a front of actually being relevant to the queries that are entered in its search bar. Results from Click System should never be interacted with, since Click System may redirect your browser to phishing sites that steal sensitive information or sites that install various types of PC threats. This severely constricts Click System's ability to acquire normal traffic, but Click System simply substitutes browser hijacker-based traffic so that its low quality doesn't impede its ability to garner clicks.

Symptoms of a browser hijacker infection that's affiliated with Click System can include:

  • Being redirected to Click System when you try to click unrelated links or visit unrelated websites. Popularly used search engines are often targeted by this redirect attack, but redirects to Click System can also strike at other times.
  • Pop-ups that spontaneously appear and display advertisements, unusual contests or inaccurate infection warnings.
  • Issues with your web browser's settings. This can include changes to your homepage, reduced security settings, settings that revert to undesired values after you reopen your browser and settings that refuse to be changed at all.
