Chromosearch.com Virus - How to remove

Chromo Search extension has been dedicated for the Google web browser, which has a very similar name, which you, for sure, know. Of course, it is the Chrome web browser. But this new browser extension has not been created by the Google company. Unfortunately, its developer is not disclosed neither in its Privacy Policy nor in its EULA (End User License Agreement). The official website of ChromoSearch add-on is also not rendered in the first pages of Google Search. It is rather not known, whether such a web page at all exists. And these circumstances are, in fact, promising nothing good.

The Web Search with Chromosearch.com Application

Despite the Fast. Private. Sleek inscription below the search bar on the start page of chromosearch.com, this extension is not recognized as a reputable search engine. On the contrary, it is ascribed to rogue programs, precisely, browser hijackers. The first search results of Google Search are the ones dedicated to the removal of Chromosearch.com. Thus, you should understand that this program is considered by cyber security experts as an unwanted application. This type of programs are not the most dangerous ones you can possibly encounter on the web. However, they exhibit a number of characteristics, which makes them unwelcome on one’s computer.

Chromosearch.com plug-in deletes your browser settings regarding the default homepage and adds new ones, which make it the new site, which greets you once you launch your web browser. While, it can be a matter of discussion, whether this is a feature of rogueware or not, all doubts are erased by the fact that these new settings, established by Chromosearch.com add-on, are irreversible via your browser. This is a trait not typical of legitimate apps. Moreover, your online searches will be swamped with advertisements of third-party. You will also be redirected to third party websites, which take quite favorable ranks in the search results rendered by Chromosearch.com. These web pages, are segregated from this search tool, as African Americans once were segregated from the European Americans. In the Privacy Policy of this search module it is indicated:

By using this service, you acknowledge that “ChromoSearch” will not be liable for any damages, claims or other liability arising from and / or related use of Web sites owned by third parties.

It is rather contradictory, since the Chromo Search extension itself renders you these domains. So its developers are related with these 3rd party sites per se. Which follows that it is, indeed, not really safe to use the latter extension. Just the owners of ChromoSearch plug-in, in this manner, insulate themselves, like a piece of land turns into an island, from any claims, which are bound to be made by the users of Chromosearch.com browser hijacker.

Who is Responsible for the Hijacking of Your Homepage?

Unfortunately, it is you yourself who is at fault here. On the other hand, you yourself can make sure that there will be no next time for Chromosearch.com or any other browser hijacker to infect your PC. This is done simply, without having to pay any fees or downloading any extra software on the machine. Just choose the Advanced/Custom/Manual or similarly named settings, which are to be provided by the installer of any free software. This way you will be able to unbundle the pre-bundled installers by simply unchecking the additional installs.
