The default homepage of my browser has been replaced with s.piesearch.com and several unwanted modification has been done in the browser settings. I am unable to restore the previous settings though I reset the browser and uninstalled unknown plug-ins and extensions. By appearance, s.piesearch.com looks like a search engine provider which offers shortcuts for social sharing websites and new channels domains however it is not providing correct and relevant result for search queries. I had noticed that most of the websites that it shows in search result are sponsored commercial domains and its screen is full of pay per click ads.
