Eseeky.com - How to remove?

Although it is possible to refuse installing Eseeky.com during the installation of the main software, quite often users skip many steps of the installation just to make it quicker and this way they end up getting additional unwanted programs.
Once inside, Eseeky.com changes your homepage and default search provider. It causes constant redirect to unknown websites and badly disturbs your work on the Internet. The program can also track your browsing activities and send this information to the third parties. Later it can be used for marketing purposes and you will experience even more annoying consequences.
