Remove (Uninstall Guide) is a search engine that returns very limited and usually paid search results or redirects users to online pharmacies, adult websites and other completely unrelated web pages. Recently, there has been an increasing number of requests regarding this search engine/redirect problem. Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and some other web browsers are very often but not always redirected to whenever you click on any of the search results. So, if your Google, Bing and other search results are hijacked to 100ksearches, your computer is infected with a Trojan horse or rootkit, probably a variant of Rootkit.Win32.ZAccess.
