Gosearchresults.com

Advertisement on the Internet did go intrusive in latter years, and people are starting to tolerate it. Banner ads are all around – starting from reputable social networks and ending with long-dead portals. There was a time when you've noticed maybe a dozen ads per day, but today you see that much each minute. Businessmen did, after all realize that the Internet is the great place to invite new customers, and swindlers thought in the same fashion. They produce adware to crawl into the workstation and make it show you suspicious, irrelevant pop-ups. One of those tools easily took over your device, and it's called Gosearchresults.com. Untrusted promotions are not for selling anything – they’re just for you to click on them. If you click on that banner, you’ll be on a scammers' webpage, where you won't get anything real. Commonly, these sites have nothing to give, just a suggestion to install a useless gratis program, which will screw up your computer and distribute even more advertisement. If you've had enough of it – on our site you can find everything you need to uninstall Gosearchresults.com.

What is Gosearchresults.com

 

We're talking about an adware, created with the only purpose: to display banners to users. It’s not even a program, as it’s just a primitive piece of code, able to change your browser options and allowing customers apply it in fraudsters favor. Here is a close description of the usual infection process:

  • The most important operation that Gosearchresults.com performs since sneaking into the OS is getting the browser under complete control. It places the swindlers' infected webpage on your search system's place, and same thing happens with the homepage. Then you literally cannot get true search results – adware will show you only the results that fraudsters want to show you.
  • When a victim gets a bundle and starts the installation, a menu pops up, offering two installation options. The first way is pre-selected, and in some cases you can’t even select another one, since it’s unreachable. By choosing the recommended option you accept to get every single harmful utility from that package, and the "experienced" method lets you decide which programs you want to install and which to remove.
  • The advertising program gets uploaded to a cheap website, along with a few other dangerous utilities. Then it should wait for a victim to download it – a user that won’t inspect the info during the installation and wants to finish the installation ASAP. Naturally, the installation folder is not called Gosearchresults.com adware – there's a useful tool in a file. It's the one that users want, but installing it, they get a heap of trash too.
  • If you have clicked the "experienced" way and aborted the installation of adware – you would not be on this site. Subsequent to that, we suppose that you haven't noticed that menu. It means that the installation continued and Gosearchresults.com began displaying ads to you.
  • The main Gosearchresults.com’s mission is complete when it switches the browser settings, so it only has to set up safety measures. It adds new entries into the system registry and makes scheduled tasks to not let you change browser settings.

That’s what Gosearchresults.com penetration looks like. Since the fifth move, Gosearchresults.com is entirely worthless, as all serious work, including the showing of banners, is performed by fake search engine. In most cases the webpage looks like Yahoo, Bing or Google, and user can enter any request in its search bar, but there won’t be any relevant results. Internet criminals take advantage of a unpaid service, called Google Custom Search Engine to develop their webpages, and its basic function is to limit the search area to a few websites. This service is used to show you untrusted search results and make customers think that they’re real.
