The likely way you got the redirect virus was when you were installing freeware. This is likely just a case of negligence, and you did not purposely install it. If users were more attentive when they install software, this method wouldn’t be as effective.

Default mode will conceal the offers, and by choosing them, you might be risking installing all kinds of unfamiliar threats. You need to uncheck the offers, and they will only be visible in Advanced (Custom) settings. You are encouraged to unmark all the offers.

Do not press on the sponsored links which you will see among the results as you may be redirected. Owners of certain pages aim to boost traffic to make more money, and redirect viruses are used to reroute you to them. Owners are able to earn more income when their web pages have more traffic since more people are likely to interact with adverts. They will probably have nothing to do with what you were looking for, so you get nothing from those websites. In some cases, they could look legitimate, so if you were to search for something very vague, like ‘anti-virus’ or ‘computer’, results with dubious hyperlinks may come up but you wouldn’t know initially. Some of those websites might even be malicious. Furthermore, the redirect virus could also be following your Internet activity and collecting certain type of data about you. Read the Privacy Policy to find out if the gathered information would be shared with third-parties, who could use it to make advertisements. Or the browser hijacker may use it to create sponsored results that are more customized. It’s clear the reroute virus doesn’t belong on your machine, so remove Search.emailsearchtools.com.
