However, for most of ordinary computer users who only surf the net to browse news, watch videos, search information, receive emails, send data and other daily activities, this search will be useless but annoying instead. Compared to Google, Yahoo and other famous searching media, ASearch Online is not the perfect tool to enhance browsing experience for users. ASearch Online is more likely to be welcomed by advertiser since it aims at increasing the ranking of search results for users. Once it is used by third party websites, it helps to increase the ranking of the related contents of these websites through making the contents first in the search results.

The Risks of Browser Hijacker
Browser hijacker is not a strange word for most of us since we may have the experience of getting computer infected by browser hijacker when download some third party programs from the internet. If you do not pay attention to your computer security, how do you expect other third party programs to? Most of browser hijackers are attached to other software and get installed along with the third party installation. If the intention of browser hijacker is to force you to use it for searching, then it starts changing web browser settings to its domain.but, for some browser hijackers, they do not simply change the default settings without permission but try to control all browsing activities so as to collect personal information. The protection that is given through computer Firewall is only temporary and is not enough to stop insecure programs which have browser hijacker included. Users can settle in to a false sense of security if they take time to scan the computer every now and then. However, not all antivirus software can detect browser hijacker even the browser settings are changed without permission since some antivirus software do not regard browser hijacker to be virus. This happens because browser hijackers do not introduce virus codes to computer but only change the browser settings.
If the antivirus you use can not delete browser hijacker, it us not possible for you to remove ASearch Online automatically but only delete all related settings and registry as well as other related folders and files by yourself. As it is said, changing default browser settings is a first step when browser hijacker has installed on computer or added to web browsers. That is not the end. To get more details for its partners or advertiser, some browser hijacker will stealthily spy on user’s browsing activities. If malicious search page want to collect personal details, then it needs to be set as homepage or search page as long as it can be added to web browser. For this reason, some browser hijacker will claim that they can enhance user’s browsing experience. Do not be fooled as this is only a fake claim which used by browser hijacker in order to make users to set it as homepage so that it can record browsing data. Some browser hijackers will collect sensitive information for advertising use but others will sell them to third party. The more users use it to search, the more it will collect.
