What can be mentioned about this threat

OnlineSportsSearch is a browser intruder categorized as a pretty minor threat. Installation for the most part happens by chance and often users are not even aware of how it occurred. Browser intruders spread through freeware, and this is called bundling. A redirect virus is not a malicious virus and shouldn’t do any direct damage. What it will do, however, is reroute to sponsored portals. Those websites won’t always safe so if you visited a hazardous site, you may end up permitting a much more serious threat to infect your operating system. You will gain nothing by keeping the reroute virus. To go back to normal browsing, you just need to remove OnlineSportsSearch. OnlineSportsSearch.png

Reroute virus travel ways

Free programs oftentimes come with extra offers. Adware, hijackers and other potentially undesirable applications may come as those additional items. Those added items are hidden in Advanced (Custom) mode so if you don’t select those settings, you will install browser intruders or other unwanted programs. If something has been added, it will appear there, and you ought to unmark everything. You will set them up automatically if you use Default mode because they fail to make you aware of anything attached, which authorizes those items to install. You should uninstall OnlineSportsSearch as it set up onto your system without proper authorization.

Why should I delete OnlineSportsSearch?

The moment the browser intruder invades your OS, your browser’s settings will be altered. The hijacker’s promoted site will be set to load as your homepage. It does not really matter which browser you are using, whether it’s Internet Explorer, Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, because they will all have that page loading. Undoing the changes might not be possible unless you make sure to uninstall OnlineSportsSearch first. A search engine will be displayed on your new home web page but we don’t recommend using it as sponsored results will be inserted into results, so as to redirect you. Hijackers aim to make as much traffic as possible for sites so that owners get income, which is why those reroutes are happening. The reroutes will be very irritating since you will end up on strange sites. We feel it is necessary to say that the redirects won’t only be annoying but also somewhat damaging. Be careful of damaging redirects since they may lead to a more serious infection. To block a much more serious infection, eliminate OnlineSportsSearch from your PC.
