In our today's guide, we will talk about two important things: how to recognize Video Search and how to eliminate it. Here we'll provide you with step-by-step advices on deletion of Video Search from the most well-known browsers: Opera, Safari, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome and from all modern releases of Windows.

What is Video Search

Video Search

Such viruses as Video Search are called advertising-oriented: the software that is a priori not useful and does not have a single helpful function. Moreover, adware causes serious damage to the OS generally, and that damage increases more and more until the Video Search stays inside the PC. The majority of advertising tools are created by cooperative of persons. Other scammers using them only replace the appearance of the program, in rare cases making minor improvements, and most of the times not investing any efforts, just buying a ready-made installation file for selling of the advertising program at criminal websites. The root for the fast propagation of suchlike utilities can be easily explained by a single phrase. Advertising utilities help fraudsters to earn lots of money being in total safeness. Usually, the most flatulent schemes such as botnets, including a bunch of devices, attract the consideration of authorities, but lesser plans often stay scot-free. The cause for this is that adware, as any legal utility nowadays, has specified functions, and prior to installing such program, the customer formally passes the stipulations for its usage, by checking the box. Naturally, nobody cares about this information, and this allows web-criminals to pursue their own aims.

 

It's time to look at the actual actions of adware and the fruits of contamination. Hackers spread Video Search using simple manner called bundling. The main point of the manner consists in affiliating 3-4 "viruses" in one pack with sole helpful program, and allocating the pack for free access. If the useful software placed in the pack is sufficiently in demand, the viruses will quickly take over the Web. Such technique is easy and cheap, and lets swindlers to acquire few aims simultaneously:

  • Each batch contains 4-5 harmful tools, and thanks to this, scammers don't have to build a separate description and a website for every single one of them.
  • Swindlers have protected themselves with method of outspread, as people willingly download the harmful programs and admit the terms for their usage.
  • Bundling does not require many efforts and funds: hackers only must put malicious files on the reputable website once, and periodically control it to see if download is shut.

The advantage of the bundle is that user can't open it except for the installation. In time of the installation the victim is shown a dialogue box where he must pick from two installation methods, which are called "reliable" and "partial". The names of those methods may vary somewhat depending upon the version, though the essence is one. Talking about useful software, the appearance of this window helps you to pick the initial options or delete unnecessary program units, but in the case of Video Search this option is the last chance to protect the computer from virus invasion. If the customer just clicks "OK", or deliberately picks the "recommended" method, then everything from the package get installed on his computer.

According to this, hackers make the victim to click on the links, even if he is not interested in the proposals given there. Every single click brings scammers few cents, but remember that there are other victims except you.
