searchtab.win is a browser hijacker that must have entered your computer along with free software. You need to start paying more attention to how you install free software as you allowed it to install yourself. It is not malicious and will not harm your computer directly as that is not its main intention. It will, however, change your browser’s settings and collect information about you. Some browser hijackers are even capable of leading users to malicious web pages, where the users could encounter malware. Browser hijackers exist to expose users to advertisement content and will not benefit you in any way. They will only disrupt your browsing sessions. Which is why we recommend that you delete searchtab.win.
