Remove MyTrustSearch.com Virus

MyTrustSearch.com is considered to be a virus by many regular computer users, even though it is more correct to classify it as browser hijacker. We believe this is more correct based on what it does with particular browsers. It changes the home page to start with mytrustsearch.com and it amends default search engine parameter. Hence, as soon as users open either of their available browsers they see mytrustsearch.com on the startup.

mytrustsearch.com hijacker

MyTrustSearch.com infects all widely used browsers today, including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Opera and Mozilla Firefox. Of course, if you prefer to use some other browsers, especially those based on the Chromium open source project, they may become infected as well and are definitely not immune.

Being quite fair, looking for information through mytrustsearch.com will not provide you with any decent search results. Instead, you may be brought to all kinds of other third-party websites of really bad reputation, through which your system may become full of other hazardous utilities. Or you may be redirected to a lot of junk sites which will simply waste your time, instead of helping you find relevant data.

MyTrustSearch.com hijacker is known to be bundled with some free programs downloaded and installed by users. It is mandatory that they always switch to advanced (custom) installation modes to prevent any third-party programs from becoming the part of their computers. Also, interference of this hijacker means that your existing anti-virus tool failed to do its job and permitted this hijacker to become the part of your PC.

We urge you to be very careful and not to allow any of such hidden installations to occur in your PC. Instead, you’re strongly advised to perform a complex scanning of your system with a reliable anti-malware tool, which is named exactly like that – GridinSoft Anti-Malware.
