Experiencing issues with Dosearches (DoSearch engine, DOsearches.com)


We TeeSupport Centre have learned that Do searches is a very annoying search engine that makes instead of the original internet browsers installed on victims’ computers.

Even though users try hard to reset their home page, but Do searches keeps coming back as their default homepage. And most of them cannot get the previous settings of browsers.
