Computer users have sent in many reports of their web browsers automatically redirecting them to the site Eseeky.com. We quickly investigated this site and found that it is a generic search engine powered by Tuvaro that attempts to provide internet search results much like the larger search sites like Google.com or Bing.com. One aspect of Eseeky.com is that it has components that cause web browsers to set the default home page and search engine to Eseeky.com. These components are usually accompanied through the installation of bundled software or other apps downloaded from the internet.
There are many sources, much of them trusted, that computer users download programs from that include an installer that loads the Eseeky.com components, add-ons or extensions within a web browser app. These components related to Eseeky.com are designed to automatically change the internet settings causing web browsers to redirect to Eseeky.com or load it each time the browser is opened.
The Eseeky.com search engine does not appear to us to be malicious in its content, however, we have noticed some of the results not to be nearly as focused as the search engine pioneer sites like Google, Yahoo or Bing. Additionally, Eseeky.com may lead to unwanted sites that computer users do not wish to visit or could potentially have questionable intentions.
The task of removing the Eseeky.com add-ons and components to stop the redirects to Eseeky.com is usually a tricky action to perform manually. Most times this process involves digging into each web browser application and deleting out each extension or add-on related to Eseeky.com. As an easier solution, PC users may utilize an antimalware download like SpyHunter to automatically remove the Eseeky.com browser hijacker and its add-ons causing the redirects. This will enable a PC user to restore their previous internet settings.
