I wrote this article to help you remove SEARCH.HYOURWEATHERINFO.COM. This SEARCH.HYOURWEATHERINFO.COM removal guide works for Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer.

SEARCH.HYOURWEATHERINFO.COM is advertised as a legitimate and useful search engine. It is supposed to enhance your online experience by providing safe and accurate search results. This sounds great, doesn’t it? Only if it were true, which it isn’t. SEARCH.HYOURWEATHERINFO.COM is, in fact, a deceptive site. It is malicious and you should take its appearance as a warning sign. Once you spot it, be sure that your machine is no longer infection-free. It harbors a cyber parasite. A browser hijacker, to be exact, and you must take immediate actions against it.

Hijackers don’t make for pleasant tenants. They are incredibly irritating, meddlesome, and also dangerous. The one you are stuck with is not an exception. The pest won`t bring along anything good. On the contrary. It will completely ruin your browsing experience. That is if you let it, of course. If you ignore the risk it poses, it will succeed. But if you take measures, you will be able to remove it before it manages to cause you damage. So, don’t procrastinate. As soon as you realize you have a hijacker in your system, find where it is hiding and delete it immediately. The sooner it is gone, the better.

The hijacker lies to your face. Once installed, it replaces your previous homepage and search engine with the SEARCH.HYOURWEATHERINFO.COM site and every time you go online, you are forced to use it. As we said, though, the page is not reliable and it shouldn’t be trusted to provide safe search results. What it does provide is quick access to malware. Most of the links you see on your screen are malicious and lead to dodgy sites. If you click, you don’t only risk getting infected with more malware, but you also help crooks earn money. That’s right! They use the pay-per-click mechanism to gain effortless profits at your expense. You become their sponsor. Each of your click fills their pockets. Not to mention your demolished browsing experience. Surfing the web is not what it used to be. It is neither safe nor fun anymore. You get interrupted by the hijacker at every turn. Every time you so much as touch one of your browsers, problems appear.

The SEARCH.HYOURWEATHERINFO.COM site is your online shadow and you cannot get rid of it no matter what you do. Also, the hijacker constantly redirects you to suspicious pages which are probably brimming with infections. And don’t forget the countless advertisements which cover your entire screen 24/7. It is a nightmare. You cannot find what you are looking for. You cannot visit your favorite sites at peace. You cannot watch a single video without being interrupted. Basically, you cannot use your PC normally. All of this because of the nasty hijacker. Do not tolerate its shenanigans. Do not put up with all the intrusions it throws your way. Instead, use our removal guide below and remove it ASAP. You will earn the gratitude of your future self.

How did you get infected with this? The hijacker may have used several tactics to enter your machine. One of them, for instance, is the spam email method. The pest may have arrived attached to a seemingly legitimate messages which you opened without thinking of the possible consequences. Another scenario is that the parasite posed as a fake program or system update and you installed it without realizing what it actually is. It may have also arrived bundles with other programs. To prevent infections in the future, always pay close attention to what you click on and what you agree to. Choose vigilance over negligence and keep your computer infection-free.
