How to remove SearchAssist
SearchAssist (aka SearchAssist.com) is advertising program that is part of Sendori network – a known adware platform. It changes words on websites to links and displays advertisements (the window is named SearchAssist.com ) once you hover on them. Sendori malware makes money each time you click on them. Some users even claim that the adware will redirect them to pages advertised on its own.
SearchAssist will be installed together with software bundles typically. Lots of download websites offer programs packed together in hopes to make some money from free ones. While this tactic might be legitimate in some cases, sometimes they won’t give enough information and way to refuse installing malware like Search Assist or Sendori. Furthermore, bundled software uninstallers do not function as intended often and fail to uninstall all the adware and hijackers they distribute. Thus, if you fail to uninstall searchAssist from control panel, you will have to scan with anti-adware programs like Spyhunter, Malwarebytes, etc.
We recommend uninstalling SearchAssist in all cases. While adware is moderately dangerous only, such software can be distributed with more dangerous types of PC infection.
