Hp.myway.com is a search site that is managed by the infamous Mindspark LLC company. This search engine is not a trustworthy one since it can display preselected search results to make people visit websites of the sponsors or click on ads that generate pay-per-click revenue.
This site is being distributed in a bundle with hundreds of PUPs, including MyAudioTab and MyDocsHere. Since the hijacker spreads in the disguise of the main freeware installer, people tend to install it accidentally. However, the symptoms, such as start page replaced by Hp.myway.com, Ask search set as default, unwanted toolbars installed, ads during web browsing, ongoing redirects to unwanted sites, etc. give away the presence of the hijacker.
