How to remove (uninstall) Search.hidemysearch.com

This material will tell you the important things about an unwanted tool called Search.hidemysearch.com and methods to delete it. If you suffer from annoying pop-ups on every site, and the speed of your laptop has greatly diminished - this entry will help you find out what adware is, identify the main problem and clean the computer of unwanted software.

Advertising tools include a fairly long list of various types, but the most effective of them are redirects, adware and browser toolbars. These utilities weren't useful from the first days, and their purpose is to receive money by tricking people. Fraudsters are trying very hard to convince you that these programs are good: they describe them very well and promise awesome efficiency and profit. To make it easier for you, we will explain the main features of each adware type.

  • Adware differs in that it exposes ad units on each website that the user views and sometimes, on the desktop. Such utilities might be masked almost to anything: system optimizers, tools for downloading and updating drivers, programs for finding movies and music, video and audio players and much more. Ads pop up as links, pop-ups or distinct units in the browser.
  • Browser hijackers do not generate advertising on the reliable web-pages. Instead of banners they redirect their victims to the suspicious web-sites. This software helps the foul website owners to generate traffic and lowers the security level of user's machine.
  • Toolbars are less irritating than adware and hijackers, but except advertising actions they also gather the data about victim's machine and about his activity on the Internet. Suchlike data is of considerable value for any advertising company.

All these software in conjunction and every one of them could be used for various types of Internet-scam. These programs have one thing in common - they all call problems for the user and prevent the victim from Web-surfing. Except for apparent disadvantage, such as the flood of irritating propositions, Search.hidemysearch.com has another hazardous feature: the abnormal lowering of machine's protection.

 

Now, when you understood for what purpose was Search.hidemysearch.com, we will tell you how to detect it. The biggest and the most important attribute of penetration is the advertising overflow. The second symptom is the appearance of additional software on your machine that you don't remember installing. Such thing might appear when user passes each link that Search.hidemysearch.com displays, viewing the untrusted pages and downloading software from them. If such thing happens, you might not even know how dangerous software gets onto your PC.

Another red flag is a heavy deceleration of the machine, and an growth in its loading time. Deceleration of machine's performance isn't only the consequent of adware, but this happens quite often. The reason for such retardation is that unlike decent programs, virus acts 24/7, displaying ads and redirecting customer to viral web-pages. It means that the program is starting at system startup and turning off only when the computer stops working. When there are too much of them, their synchronous work overloads the system, and takes so much resources that good software just can't run. When the PC is in such state, it suffers from trouble shutdowns, retardation and critical errors of important services. If you see any of these marks - you should scan the hard drive via reputable antiviral tool or delete all adware in manual manner.
