Dosearches.com Virus Removal

Dosearches.com is a malicious redirection virus and browser hijacker that modifies your browser’s homepage, default search engine and causes redirects of webpages.

Dosearches.com

Dosearches.com may look like a legitimate website created to assist users with their search sessions. However, security experts and malware researchers started to classify this threat as browser hijacker due to its constant redirections to potentially unwanted websites.

Once installed, Dosearches.com virus changes your DNS settings and hijacks the main browsers like Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Firefox. That results in continuous redirections to domain dosearches.com. This browser hijacker virus is spread by using spam e-mail attachments, freeware or shareware programs.

Dosearches.com collects and stores all information about internet users activity, logs every visited website. All gathered data is sent to marketing companies. The company that is responsible for developing Dosearches.com malware, pays a certain amount per install for their affiliates, and this is the reason why it is exploited by so many online marketers.

    I have been hijacked by dosearches&snapdo, will not uninstall snap do on programs uninstalled. Failed all attempts that are suggested soo,next step is to try utube how to uninstall dosearches.com &snapdo.com.It has been highly recommended to me to use Mozilla Firefox for my browser instead of Chrome as it does have more spyware and infection protection. Also, discovered just how much my Computer has been overtaken with these types of virus/infections/conduit’s ect. Best of Luck to All. I may have to get a Computer Tech tune up which could cost up to 4hundred dollar’s that is ridiculous,why has AntiNorton Virus have the spyware needed for these types of invader’s?
    kindly best luck to all Sue

    Open RegEdit, search for dosearch.
    Remove from the end of the shell open command for IE, Chrome etc.

    Use regedit carefully.
