Globasearch.com could hijack your home page without your permission when you download unreliable software bundles. It is clear that this search tool is unreliable, because it presents pop-up advertisements promoting unreliable services and installers. This browser hijacker can redirect you to webswitch.tk. The interface of this search engine is very similar to the interface of globasearch.com, which is why we believe that both of these search tools have been created by the same company. Of course, we believe that you should remove webswitch.tk and any search engines associated with it. Even though webswitch.tk supposedly provides the search results of Google, there is no reason why you should use a browser hijacker instead of google.com. Links to Wikipedia, YouTube, or Download.com should not lead you to postpone the removal of webswitch.tk-related browser hijacker either.

You cannot remove webswitch.tk itself, unless it hijacks your home page, but you can delete globasearch hijacker if you do not want to be exposed to this unreliable search tool.
