Start spreading the news!

Searchult is a hijacker changing your browsing preferences without your permission. For example, you may notice the page searchult.com to be set in the homepage of your browser. Whenever you attempt to look for any information through the built-in search box you will notice that your search queries are redirected through search.searchult.com. Well, here comes the logical question – is Searchult really as helpful as it is advertised?

Searchult virus

To look for the information through Searchult browser hijacker is just the waste of your time. You will not find any relevant information which would meet your search queries. Plus, you may notice very many annoying ads displayed in the homepage of your hijacked browser and together with those pseudo search results redirected through the hijacker. Various sponsored links leading to third-party sites will be advertised along with those pseudo search results redirected through search.searchult.com.

It is strongly not recommended for you to click on those advertisements and sponsored links you see in the website of Searchult. They may lead you to different sites which are of poor reputation. You may be told to download and install various junk programs into your computer, so obviously your system may become even more infected with all kinds of junk software.

Searchult hijacker is distributed in the Internet today on the basis of being bundled by default with many other free applications. When you install any free software please be extremely careful to pay attention to the installation details. You must not permit any third-party programs to become the part of your system. Please always select the option of a custom or advanced installation, instead of the standard one. This way of software installation will help you to uncheck all unwanted components from becoming the part of your computer.

In some cases users fail to be attentive and blindly click on “Next” and “I agree” buttons, without actually understanding what exactly they agree with. As a result, they often permit various additional junk software to become the part of their computers by default. Again, Searchult is not the good program for your system, since it causes browser redirection to random sites which may contaminate the PC with other even more serious infections.
