Search.searchitknow.com Removal Tips
Search.searchitknow.com, also known as SearchKnow, is classified as a browser hijacker. It may seem like a useful search tool at first, but we assure you that is not the case. The hijacker gets distributed in freeware and shareware bundles, even though it has an official webpage. Once it enters your system, it alters your browser settings without your permission.
It does not matter which web browser you use, because the hijacker is compatible with all major browsers. If you want to go back to regular Internet surfing without unnecessary changes and interruptions, you should terminate Search.searchitknow.com.
How does Search.searchitknow.com work?
The main symptom of the hijacker is its ability to alter your home page and default search engine. The website that you see every time you go online contains nothing but a search box. If you make use of it, you will get redirected to search.yahoo.com. The search results page contains sponsored ads and links. We suggest that you avoid them. The same goes for advertisements presented to you on other sites that you visit. Some of the adverts provided by the hijacker may be unreliable. If you click on them, you could end up on a corrupted website and fall victim to a virtual scam.
