Www-searches.net is a browser hijacker, which is not a decent search provider. It cannot be compared to Google or Yahoo. What is does is simply stealing search results from these reputable search companies and presenting them as its own ones. By means of various deceptive tricks, the hijacker injects itself into all widely used browsers today, including Google Chrome, Opera, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge. Other browsers are definitely not an exception and can become contaminated as well.
Www-searches.net hijacker typically implants its malicious codes into computers through integration of its installer with other cost-free software.

In case you find the information about some additional programs you do not need (yet those that are suggested for default installation), then you need to make sure you do not authorize any hidden installations to take place in your computer without your permission or approval.
It is surely regretful that sometimes people really fail to be duly careful. They often click on Next or I agree buttons, without really understanding what exactly they agree with. As a result, their PCs get often infected with a lot of other totally useless and even malicious programs that they really do not need. Also, intrusion of Www-searches.net hijacker into your system in particular means that your available anti-malware program failed to perform its direct function of protecting your computer from malware attacks.
