Docksearch.net – How to remove?

What is Docksearch.net?

Docksearch.net is an unreliable website that can replace your home page and default search provider after you install a potentially unwanted or an ad-supported application onto your PC. It is often referred to as a browser hijacker, because it alters your settings without permission. In addition to these modifications, the hijacker also adds an extension to your browsers, floods you with advertisements, reroutes you to unfamiliar pages, and causes other unnecessary disruptions. The program may appear to be useful at first, but we assure you that the best thing you can do for your online security is to terminate Docksearch.net.

How does Docksearch.net work?

The page that now appears on your screen every time you open your browser contains a search box, quick access links divided into Popular Sites, Shopping, and Games categories, and a flashy advert that is clearly fake. If you click on the fake advertisement, you will get redirect to a corrupted page hosting some kind of a scam. The quick links should be avoided as well. Even though they appear to lead to such popular sites as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, and others, you never know what page you may land on. If you enter a query into the search box presented on the home page, you will get redirected to findamo.com, which will show you results that are filled with sponsored links. Another feature of the home page is the VIDEO link that appears at the top-left corner. If you click on it, you get rerouted to a video-hosting site, blinkx.com.

The Docksearch.net hijacker belongs to Howard Software. This company does not endorse any of the content that the hijacker inserts into your browsers. You click on it at your own risk. It is clear that not all of the adverts shown to you or the pages that you get redirected to are reliable. That is why we suggest that you eliminate Docksearch.net from your browsers without delay.
