What is Searchboro.com. Removal reasons and methods

Few days ago we began to receive complaints on the suspicious program, called Searchboro.com that appears in user’s browsers and shows ads. Now we will explain what is it and how do deal with it. If your PC is infected by Searchboro.com you should know that it is not a virus. Searchboro.com can’t steal, delete or in some way change the files on your PC. The only thing that it can do is to show you ads in browser, so when you will remove it from the system – all problems will instantly end. Searchboro.com belongs to a type of programs which are called browser hijackers. This means that web-scammers use you and your PC to earn money by making you click on advertising links and view ads.

Many people heard about the last large advertisement fraud that had been revealed few months ago. Scammers earned more than $3 million per day, using the large botnet from more than 400 000 user’s computers. Searchboro.com might be a part of suchlike fraud scheme or might be not – anyway it pursues the same goal – to trick the average users and to make them click on ads. It became possible to do such things when all advertising companies began to use the “pay per click” payment system. It means that the advertiser pays money each time when the user clicks on the ad and passes the link to the advertised website. This system is pretty useful but opens a large field for fraud schemes and for attacks on advertisers. Browser hijackers might be used just to earn money or to bring troubles to advertising companies by destroying their budget. You know how annoying is Searchboro.com, so when it shows you another link and you accidentally click on it, you don’t want to know how what sells the website where you appeared on and you just close the tab. But advertiser will pay for this referral, and for thousands of other referrals that weren’t even close to sell something. Any browser hijacker, installed on your PC, makes it a part of a botnet, and its user – a pawn on the scammer’s board. If you want to stop it, we can help you to get rid of Searchboro.com once and for all, with help of our instructions and decent removal software.
