SerfSearch

SerfSearch Description

SerfSearch is an annoying browser hijacker associated with serfsearch.com. This unreliable tool travels together with freeware and may enter without the knowledge of the users. Once the unreliable add-on reaches your system, it immediately affects all detected Internet clients, such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. After this initial setup is completed, the hijacker proceeds with its main activity – to promote serfsearch.com. This platform may replace your default homepage without any authorization. You may be also redirected to the site on any possible occasion. Although you are encouraged to perform your searches through it, you should not trust serfsearch.com. This low-quality search engine is designed to generate traffic towards partner sites. As a result, you may start visiting sites, which don't meet your search criteria. Unfortunately, some of them may even host malicious content and may try to infect your PC. In addition, the overall performance of your browser may be troubled, and you may notice additional commercial materials. As with all browser hijackers, the recommended course of action is to remove SerfSearch with a credible security application.
