Yeadesktop.com Description


Yeadesktop.com is a poorly stylized page that hosts several interesting things that accompany a simple search field. Before providing details about the content hosted there, it is important to mention that users may stumble upon Yeadesktop.com while using their Web browser even if they had not heard of this page ever before. This may happen because Yeadesktop.com uses browser hijacking software to modify a Web browser's settings so that its new tab page and homepage will be set to Yeadesktop.com. Naturally, this does not happen without installing the hijacking software, and that's why users who experience this issue should think carefully if they've installed software that may have brought the hijacker to their computers recently.

In its current state, Yeadesktop.com includes a collection of quick links to popular websites, as well as an automatic scrolling Twitter feed, which claims to provide users with funny jokes and quotes. Last but not least, below the search bar uses will find a collection of free online games that can be played from their Web browser directly. However, the most important part of every search page appears to be dysfunctional in the case of Yeadesktop.com – entering any search term in the search bar and hitting the 'Search' button does absolutely nothing.

If you see Yeadesktop.com when you launch your Web browser, then it is strongly recommended to take the required actions to uninstall the software that brought this program to your computer. This task may be difficult to carry out manually so that it is a good idea to put this chore in the hands of a skilled anti-malware scanner that will automate the removal process.
