MyPDFSearch is a browser intruder not regarded as a high-level contamination. Browser hijackers are for the most part accidentally installed by users, they may even be oblivious to the infection.

A hijacker is not seen to be dangerous and therefore shouldn’t do any direct damage.

Browser hijackers do not filter through the websites so you could be redirected to one that would allow malicious program to infiltrate your PC. It will not present any useful services to you, so keeping it is quite pointless. To go back to usual browsing, you just need to erase MyPDFSearch.
