Goingonearth.com is not a good substitution to major search engines, but, in most of the cases, user’s opinion on this subject is not taken into consideration as there is a redirect virus that acts on system kernel level to make of the poor quality search tool a forced user’s favorite page.
The redirect virus is essentially different from BHO, browser helper object, as it is not attached to any browser. Instead of that, it controls all browsers on system level. Removal of Goingonearth.com infection is thus not related to any particular software disinfection. It is an act of computer system cleanup.
The redirector does not necessarily redirect to the above web-address, though it is doubtlessly the most frequent destination. Also, there is no ban for visiting such search engines as Google, Yahoo, MSN, but quires made by users to these search tools go to redirecting facility which leads the search to annoying and tricky pages.
