What Is Moonly Search?
Moonly Search is a browser hijacker; it takes over your browser settings, sets default search engine to Mooonly.com and may prevent you from changing these settings. Mooonly.com is not an actual search provider and the only search result it will give you is a link to trendstyleshops.com, customized for your search terms. You can follow this step-by-step guide to remove Moonly Search from your computer.
Is Moonly Search a Virus?
Moonly Search is a mild form of malware; browser hijackers like Moonly Search are usually called potentially unwanted applications (PUAs or PUPs). Like other PUAs, Moonly Search can be installed together with free software from the Internet. When you install software from download sites, most of the time during installation you will be asked if you want to install several “recommended” programs too. Sometimes you are not asked but told that an extra app will get installed if you continue. And if you rush through the installation, you might not even notice that a few more apps got installed than was planned.
