How to remove (uninstall) Chromesearch.win

This page is devoted to an unwanted tool called Chromesearch.win and methods to uninstall it.

Chromesearch.win

Advertising utilities include a very long list of diverse types, but the most popular of them are browser hijackers, adware and browser toolbars. These tools are originally developed not to benefit customers, and their purpose is to get money by deceiving customers. Hackers are trying very hard to persuade users that these programs are worthy: they create extensive descriptions and promise awesome usability and profit. So, what is the real aim of advertising tools?

  • Toolbars are less annoying than adware and hijackers, but ads are not their only purpose. They also collect the data about user's computer and about his actings on the Internet. Such data can be used to trick its owner or sold to third parties.
  • Adware's basic attribute is that it inserts advertising information on all sites that the victim visits and sometimes, on the desktop. Suchlike tools can be disguised as anything: software for finding games and movies, media players, driver updaters, system optimizers and much more. Proposals that are shown by advertising tools are not dependable and we strongly suggest you not to click on them.
  • Browser hijackers do not place ads on extraneous websites. Hijackers, from time to time open a scammer's page in the browser that passes to one of the sites with advertising and untrusted links. Also, hijackers change default search and homepage.

Each of above written sorts of malware uses especial ways to penetrate the system and to work in it. However, they have one thing in common - they all call inconvenience to the user and prevent Web-surfing. Except for apparent inconvenience, such as abundance of advertising and pop-ups, there is another property of Chromesearch.win: the significant lowering of machine's protection.

 

Now, when we see why this program was created, it is time to learn how to detect malware and remove it. The first and the most noticeable sign of penetration is the advertising overflow. The second sign is the appearance of useless programs in the system that you were not installing. Such thing can happen when customer clicks on all links that Chromesearch.win shows, visiting the viral pages and installing programs from them. In this case, you might not even understand how virus enters your laptop. The third sign is a noticeable deceleration of the PC, and an enlargement in its boot time. The reason for such slowdown is that, unlike ordinary software, virus works all the time, generating banners and redirects to the suspicious pages. It means that the program is launching at system startup and shutting down only with the whole system. If 3-5 such programs will get into your PC, their contemporaneous operation overloads the system, and needs so much resource that good software simply can't perform its functions. This can induce critical errors of different services, lags and emergency turn-offs. If you see any of these marks - you should scan the computer via good antivirus or clean it of undesired software by hand.
