What is Chrome Search Online. Removal reasons and methods

Chrome Search Online, as a virus is actually not a virus. It’s a simple script that can perform a limited number of commands and then just waits until you try to change what it did. Not too complex, huh? Well, that’s how it is! Chrome Search Online can’t distribute itself through the web, and it can’t even infect a flash drive, as it needs to be installed manually. One more thing: it’s not operated by hackers, coders or any other “computer-guys”. Nowadays, you can buy any type of malicious program on the Dark Net, and adware costs not too much money. Usually, scammers just buy it and send it off to the infected websites and file-sharing portals from which it can spread all over the Web. If had an adware infection before, you might have noticed that all these programs look very similar. They really do, because most advertising tools are one program with different layouts and descriptions. Scammers just buy it again and again, with a few strings of code changed, to cast the AV-tools off the track.

So, what exactly Chrome Search Online does, and which goals it has to achieve? First of all, it changes the browser settings. Your browser is the most vulnerable program in the system, as it deals with infected websites and viruses daily. By changing its settings, Chrome Search Online makes it even more vulnerable, enables unprotected downloads and makes you see the scammers’ website instead of your regular search engine and homepage. After that, it might also alter the features of the browsers’ shortcuts, and make some other changes to protect Chrome Search Online from deletion.



When everything’s set and prepared – Chrome Search Online starts to work, and its work is to show you ads, as much as it can. Not a very difficult job for any program, right? Chrome Search Online handles it pretty well, showing tons of ads and annoying you beyond any measure, to make you click on banners and links, and give some money to scammers. There is no way to stop this mess except removing Chrome Search Online from the system, with all its elements. You should remember that the deletion is much harder and much more time-consuming than the avoidance, so firstly you should take care of your system security, to make it impenetrable to adware and viruses. Here are few tips on how to achieve this:


  • Stop using the pirated software, and stop downloading free programs from unusual places.
  • Keep all your programs up to date. Some viruses use the vulnerabilities in the system to get into it, and if the system and all programs within it will be properly updated – it will be harder to found a breach in security.
  • Don’t turn off your AV-tool no matter what. Especially, if you’re downloading or installing something. Some programs might ask you to turn off an antivirus to install them, but if you will do it – remember that you’re acting on your own risk.
  • Make sure that all emails are sent to you, and they don’t look strange. If you see an email, containing some files, and you haven’t requested it – it’s probably some scam, so you shouldn’t open it.


There are specific sandbox programs, able to quarantine suspicious files and protect the system from eventual harm.
