Maybe you’ve faced the overall retardation of PC’s and browser speed, or suspicious results of search and frequent redirections to the untrusted webpages? The red flags which are listed above are saying that the computer is infected by some kind of advertising tool, and this software has to be uninstalled.

What is Search Dimension

Search Dimension

Every program has its goal, and this adware isn't an exception. But, the real task of this program does not match with the declared ones. Commonly, the description of the undesired tool declares that it will be highly useful. 95% of adware promise to support you to look for goods or information in the Internet. Supervising the activity of friends in Facebook, help in the search for latest movies, games or music and search for deals, sales and discounts online - that's the features that 90% of adware state to accomplish. The primary thing you have to do when you're going to install some software - to take thought, is it really useful? By the way, the task of malware developers is to declare that their adware performs something which is impossible to check. The "better", "faster" or "safer" search online is a excellent sample of suchlike function, as these options are very indistinct and they're very to supervise. According to this, advertising programs are completely useless, and is just consuming space on your hard drive? Of course not!! These programs perform a highly substantial task, - to let hackers to obtain from $1000 to $5000 a day from novice users.

 

Novice PC operators think that almost all viruses have no distinct task. It's pretty reasonable, right? Web-scammer thinks about a user that is trying to delete his virus right now, and it feels very good! Alright, it was a joke. The perilous programs are always aimed for something, and even if you don't know what it is for - you'll understand it later. For example, the continuous display of annoying advertising on each page is not accidental. All this advertising is shown to obtain money on referrals. Simply said, defrayment of promotional services is made according to the quantity of clicks done on the pop-up, or the quantity of referrals from link to the web-page. Thus, the more ads adware displays you, the better is the chance that you will take an interest in it and click on the link. Even if you don't take interest in hacker's proposals - the click may still be done, in order to hide an uncomfortable annoying ad. Any click is worth the money and based on the sort of advertisement it can count up to 5 cents and sometimes even more. Although the reward isn’t large, do not neglect the number of infected machines! Gullible user can take the advertising given by virus seriously, and try to find something entertaining among adware offers, doing hundreds of clicks per day. Big AV-software developers and malware-fighting communities receive thousands of reports on Search Dimension, so scammers do pretty good profit on it.

Methods to remove Search Dimension

By the way, there is one more feature in Search Dimension which in the long term may bring significant damage to your computer. We speak about that Search Dimension can shift browser controls in order to distribute advertisement more effective that makes it very defenseless against all sorts of viruses. Search Dimension changes the set search engine and the web-address of the home page, and also blocks features that are reliable for blocking of advertising and for prevention of suspicious downloads. Thus, when adware is within the PC, the browser is highly vulnerable, and different harmful programs can use it to enter the system, which exactly occurs if user begins to randomly click on suspicious links shown by adware. Depending on man's activity on the Internet, the PC can be heavily infected in a 3-4 weeks, and suddenly become so retarded that it is nearly impossible to work. You have only one way to stop advertisement and protect your machine from adware hazard - to delete Search Dimension.

Method 2. Remove Search Dimension manually

Step 1. Uninstall Search Dimension from the operation system

Step 2. Remove Search Dimension from the browser (Google Chrome/Mozilla Firefox/IE/Opera/Safari)

 

We know two principal methods of advertisement tool distribution: the placing on the infected web-pages and bundled installation with good software. Unwanted sites are really easy to recognize: they are on the last pages in search, and they intrusively suggest to download something. Except that, pay attention to the notifications that your browser and anti-virus display. To protect yourself from the infection via the bundled installation technique, you must closely monitor the installation of each program. Installation in bundles means that advertising software is integrated into installers of useful programs. The installer is changed to offer you to install extra software instead of the one that you need. All boxes are already checked, and by clicking "OK" he installs at least three programs in addition to the needed one. You should know that: if Search Dimension had entered your PC with help of installation in bundles, there probably are other adware or viruses. According to this, when you see the choice between “safe installation” and “installation for practiced users” – pick the second variant. Keep this in mind every time you install new program - and your PC will be noticeably cleaner.

Search Dimension removal tool

The uninstall of Search Dimension in manual manner needs approximately 5-10 minutes, and might be performed even by not practiced user.

When you uninstall an undesired program manually, you can't prevent it (or any other malware) from sneaking into the machine again. Antivirus program is the wisest decision for those users who wish to decrease the amount of efforts spent on the security of their PCs. We propose you to use tool named Spyhunter that not only uninstalls all malware from your machine but also protects it from all other harmful programs as long as Spyhunter will stay on your PC.
