Home Malware Programs Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs) HDSportsSearchs


Posted: September 23, 2020

HDSportsSearchs is a browser extension whose installation may bring unforeseen changes to your Web browser's settings. This is not a harmful application by any means, but you should certainly not allow it to run on your computer because of the unwanted changes it brings. This tool is classified as a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP), and you are unlikely to experience any trouble with it if you are keeping your system protected by a suitable security tool.

The changes that HDSportsSearchs brings concern your Web browser configuration and, in particular, the default search aggregator and new tab page. HDSportsSearchs will replace the default search engine with Feed.hdsportssearchs.com, while the new tab will be set as Portal.hdsportssearchs.com. These pages work reliably, but it goes without saying that this may change at any time. Furthermore, Hdsportssearchs.com is not as functional and reliable as Google, Bing, Yahoo, or other popular websites that users have often set as their default new tab.

The removal of HDSportsSearchs should be completed with the use of a suitable PC security tool. Once you complete this task, all changes that the PUP brought to your Web browser will be negated.
