Things Coolasearch.com search engine hides from users

Coolasearch.com is nothing more than another piece of malware that you definitely don’t want on your computer. It falls into the browser hijacker category of cyber threats and might also cause some damage to your security. Although the application is designed to attack Mac users, it is just a matter of time for Windows version to appear, so you should be prepared and know useful tips to remove Coolasearch.com. We will cover several methods to deal with the hijacker including detailed instructions for manual and automatic removal.

What is Coolasearch.com exactly?

When the hijacker is installed on your machine, it acts according to the common scheme for all viruses of this nature. Coolasearch.com becomes your start page by default, so there are zero chances that won’t notice that something is wrong. That page promotes a basic search engine for you to try but we would not recommend doing so. In addition to that, you will also notice a link named «Clean My Mac» which leads to a web page that promotes MacKeeper application in the most annoying way – with pop-ups here and there. As you see Coolasearch.com has attributes of an ad-supported software, and this alone must be convincing enough for you to remove it.

Coolasearch.com looks presentable and sleek but when you try to search something you will find only sponsored links. No need to mention that all those links are far from being relevant to search queries. Furthermore, clicking on them might bring you to infected websites and unreliable sources. As soon as this hijacker gains access to your OS, it scans your system for private information: IP address, search history, web searching apps you use, your browsing habits, ads you click on, etc. This hijacker admits the fact of sharing that information with third-party organizations, so you should remove Coolasearch.com without wasting any time.

If you don’t have an anti-malware protection, you automatically become an easy target for hackers who own sponsored websites. In this case, Coolasearch.com browser hijacker serves as a portal and opens a loophole for other threats to sneak in. There is also a high chance that you will be scammed upon arrival.

How to avoid browser hijackers and other unwanted programs?

Remember that almost any free or cracked software on suspicious file sharing websites is either infected or bundled with potentially unwanted programs and applications. Plus, be aware of aggressive marketing signs and pop-ups that offer to try various programs for free – there are always some hidden conditions attached to them. Very often those programs have additional components – sometimes dangerous, sometimes not – but anyway they force or trick you to install unwanted software on your PC. It is so easy to miss a checkbox or two during quick installation, and when it starts, it is already too late. We recommend always selecting Custom installation or going into Advanced options before pressing «Install». Always read what you are about to install on your drives.

The easiest way to remove Coolasearch.com

We suggest removing this browser hijacker automatically with the help of any reliable anti-malware solution. Programs like Plumbytes Anti-Malware, Reimage, or SpyHunter will do the trick. It will be much easier and faster than trying to fix messed up settings manually or searching for malicious software folder by folder. Plus, these programs can also identify other problems with your system and correct them at once. For additional details, please, follow the instructions below.
