What Is Search.privacy-search.net?
If the default search engine in your browsers has been set to http://search.privacy-search.net/ without your participation, a browser hijacker is the culprit. Browser hijackers can be separate programs or browser extensions; they change browser settings, such as homepage or search engine, to some website and don’t allow users to change those back. Often browser hijackers get installed on users’ computers together with freeware from the Internet – when users install that freeware and forget to opt out of extra programs’ installation (toolbars, video downloaders, PC optimizers, coupon finders, etc.). You may follow instructions on this page to uninstall Privacy Search browser hijacker and remove http://search.privacy-search.net/ from your browsers.
