Search.searchtrmypa(.)com – Description
Search.searchtrmypa(.)com is the search engine of the browser hijacker named Track This Package. The search engine is that of a tool that supposedly tracks a package you have bought overseas or from another city, through the Internet. It also shares similar websites via its toolbar.

This is how the search engine looks like:
A browser extension or some add-on might be set in your browser applications and change their settings, like the start page, new tab, search and the like. Additional components such as these extensions mainly come from bundled applications and get on your PC with their installation.

If Search.searchtrmypa(.)com is on your computer system and is affecting your browsers, you could experience slowdowns in performance.

From the screenshot shown above, you can see the search results page you land on from the Search.searchtrmypa(.)com search engine.

You can see that Yahoo is the search given here as an example, but other famous search engines might be shown, too. That is used by hijackers, so they can trick you into trusting them.
