PRLog - Jan. 15, 2014 - Many PC users have questioned the intentions of the site 22Find.com. By a quick look at 22Find.com it appears to be an internet search engine like Bing.com, Yahoo.com or even Google.com. Many of the quick link icons redirect users to its proper link while it enables some to do internal searches of those linked sites without actually visiting the page.
The problem with 22Find.com comes in where it tends to load automatically on computers and tends to be quite annoying. The thing with 22Find.com is that it may be set as a PC user’s default home page on their web browser, whether it is Internet Explorer, Google Chrome or Firefox that they are using. 22Find.com will commonly load upon opening up a new web browser or web browser window.
In the cases of 22Find.com loading as the default home page, those PCs have unwanted files or plugins present on them. These files more than likely have come from the previous download and installation of a freeware program. Freeware programs are distributed on various download sites across the internet but there is no way of knowing which ones will load plugins or components causing the internet settings to be changed so that the 22Find.com site will load as a default home page.
