Remove the SafeFinder.com and Linkury Browser Hijacker

PUP Browser Hijacker No Comments »

SafeFinder.com and Linkury are browser hijackers that hijack your installed web browser’s home page and search engines so that they display the SafeFinder.com home page and search engine instead of your normally configured ones. When installed SafeFinder and Linkury will modify your web browser’s configuration so that the home page becomes search.safefinder.com and it’s default search provider will become a SafeFinder search provider powered by Yahoo. What makes this hijacker so problematic is that it uses Windows services to make it difficult to change your browser’s settings and also modifies your web browser’s shortcuts so that the safefinder.com site is always opened.
