What is QuickDocsOnline?

Yet another “brainchild” from Mindspark Interactive is called QuickDocsOnline. According to the description, it is supposed to improve the user’s browsing experience by adding new features. The program embeds a new tab that has tools allowing to work with documents directly in the browser. But despite this, we advise you to remove QuickDocsOnline from computer although this is not an easy task. In fact, it is created for one purpose – promotion of third-party sites. To succeed in this intention, the developers made it look like an ordinary search engine, still, the page gives itself away with a number of ads. Despite the fact that the page is intended to be a search engine, you shouldn’t use it for this purpose – bear in mind that the page belongs to malware and is used as a tool for misleading the users. When a search performed, the results are always unpredictable as the hijacker tends to replace the relevant pages with those that it promotes. There were cases of users being brought to malicious websites by the QuickDocsOnline hijacker. What is more confusing is that the malware blocks the browser setting from altering, so that a user won’t be able to change the homepage manually. The only means to get rid of these problems is to remove QuickDocsOnline itself.
