The program can enter computers bundled with various freeware, for example, free music or video players, video recorders, PDF creators and so on. Once inside, the application modifies your browser settings and aims to advertise various websites by redirecting users when they are making some searches on Google, Bing, Yahoo or other search provider.
Despite which search tool you will use, Boaxxe will provide search results from searchpagex.or or searchpagex.com instead of Google, Bing or whatever search engine you have set to be default. If you click on the links provided in your search results, you will be redirected through click.dealshark.com and other advertising networks.
