What is Your Free Online Forms?

The Malwarebytes research team has determined that Your Free Online Forms is a browser hijacker. These so-called "hijackers" manipulate your browser(s), for example to change your startpage or searchscopes, so that the affected browser visits their site or one of their choice.
Your Free Online Forms is a member of the Spigot family as described in the blogpost Spigot browser hijackers.

How do I know if my computer is affected by Your Free Online Forms?

You may see these browser extensions/add-ons:

and this new default search provider:

How did Your Free Online Forms get on my computer?

Browser hijackers use different methods for distributing themselves. This particular one was downloaded from their site.

How do I remove Your Free Online Forms?

Our program Malwarebytes can detect and remove this potentially unwanted program.
  • Please download Malwarebytes to your desktop.
  • Double-click mb3-setup-consumer-{version}.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
  • Then click Finish.
  • Once the program has fully updated, select Scan Now on the Dashboard. Or select the Threat Scan from the Scan menu.
  • If another update of the definitions is available, it will be implemented before the rest of the scanning procedure.
  • When the scan is complete, make sure that all Threats are selected, and click Remove Selected.
  • Restart your computer when prompted to do so.
Is there anything else I need to do to get rid of Your Free Online Forms?
  • No, Malwarebytes removes Your Free Online Forms completely.
  • If you are using an older version of Malwarebytes, you may have to remove the Chrome extension manually under Tools > More Tools > Extensions. Click on the bin under the Your Free Online Forms entry and confirm Remove in the prompt.
  • If your browsers have been hijacked, you should read our Restore Browser page. You can read there how to fix additional browser redirect methods.
How would the full version of Malwarebytes help protect me?

We hope our application and this guide have helped you eradicate this hijacker.

As you can see below the full version of Malwarebytes would have protected you against the Your Free Online Forms hijacker. It would have warned you before the hijacker could install itself, giving you a chance to stop it before it became too late.
