CoolWebSearch - How To Remove?

Type: Browser Hijacker

CoolWebSearch (CWS) is a group of computer toolbars that are classified as a hijacker. It interrupts your work with computer in several ways. First of all it redirects your homepage to or other sites which need traffic to be driven to. Navigating the Internet becomes difficult because of constant pop-up advertisements showing up. Most of the ads are of pornographic content. This toolbar might add links to such sites on your desktop, bookmarks list and browser history.

As this weren‘t enough, the toolbar can collect private information about computer users and their activity on internet. This information is very valuable for marketing companies but since it is gathered without a user‘s consent, it breaches your privacy rights. One more annoying feature of having CoolWebSearch is slowing down the speed of an infected computer, especially on low memory conditions. CWS may also install other spyware on your PC, therefore it is important to remove it as soon as you notice its activity.

Coolwebsearch is installed using software bundles typically. You install single apparently useful software and get set of programs and toolbars instead. Many of these toolbars had to pay to be included in such bundle thus they try to convince you into paying for their services or make money from advertisements.

We recommend using spyhunter for CoolWebSearch removal. It will enable to perform all the process automatically and protect your computer from similar hijackers in the future.
