Find-answers-fast.com

Posted: August 4, 2011

Find-answers-fast.com is a browser hijacker as well as the malicious website that find-answers-fast.com redirects your browser towards without your consent. Although the find-answers-fast.com website pretends to be a useful search engine, all results that you acquire from find-answers-fast.com will be irrelevant to your search query and possibly even hostile to your PC. SpywareRemove.com malware research experts have linked find-answers-fast.com to rogue anti-virus application distribution and any find-answers-fast.com infection on your computer should be expunged with the help of an appropriate threat-removal program.

Reasons to Get Away from Find-answers-fast.com as Fast as Possible

Find-answers-fast.com does have a semi-functional search feature, but this feature is as abusive to your PC as any outright virus or other infection. Unlike a real search engine, find-answers-fast.com will create search results that aren't even remotely related to the initial search query – for example, find-answers-fast.com may list affiliate gambling sites to attempt to profit from affiliate traffic-based funding scams.

These results also have the potential to be extremely dangerous; SpywareRemove.com malware researchers have also found that find-answers-fast.com will use its results to promote rogue anti-virus programs. One such example that has been confirmed to be affiliated with find-answers-fast.com is Antivirus 2009. Other rogue AV programs in the same family as Antivirus 2009 include, but aren't limited to Antivirus 2008, System Antivirus 2008, Doctor Antivirus and Vista Antivirus 2008.

Rogue anti-virus programs will create fake errors to lure you into giving your credit card information away in a purchase form for the program's 'full' version. However, Antivirus 2009 and other find-answers-fast.com-endorsed PC security products are incapable of detecting or removing viruses or other infections.

Why You Might Wind Up at Find-answers-fast.com By Accident

Most victims of find-answers-fast.com attacks will only find themselves at find-answers-fast.com after they've been subjected to a browser hijacker infection. Browser hijackers that are affiliated with find-answers-fast.com will redirect you to find-answers-fast.com in an attempt to force you to use the website's fake search engine. So far, SpywareRemove.com malware experts have found that the find-answers-fast.com hijacker is specific to Internet Explorer, although variants of find-answers-fast.com may also be able to attack other web browsers.

Since almost all browser hijackers, including find-answers-fast.com, alter browser-related settings and the Windows Registry to make their redirect attacks, you shouldn't try to remove find-answers-fast.com hijackers by deleting their files. This will leave other system changes intact.

In addition, since find-answers-fast.com hijackers will launch themselves automatically, they may prevent you from deleting any find-answers-fast.com component from your PC. Using Safe Mode to disable the find-answers-fast.com hijacker, followed by using an anti-malware program to delete find-answers-fast.com, will restore your computer to full health.

To protect yourself from such find-answers-fast.com infections, keep your web browsers and security software updated at all times, avoid enabling scripts for risky websites and only use system scanner features and software update links that are from verified and official sources.

    Do you agree with the fact that McAfee anti-spyware is garbage now? It doesn't seem to work anymore and the cost is going up every year. I merely hate it in any way.
