How To Remove Secure Search Virus From Your Computer

Remove Secure Search

Many of you came across one virus called Secure Search. It will look like something that is good for your Internet and secure search, but it is not. Secure Search is a virus that is really annoying for you. You will click on any text box and a new tab will open in your Chrome with some ad or other video. 

How it is getting installed?

According to my experience, This kind of Virus or malware is coming to your computer with some kind of unwanted software which you installed. These unwanted software comes through any cracked version of software you download from torrent or any hacking sites. Usually hackers use to insert their codes in the cracked software and when you installed it in your computer then hackers code will also be executed and these kind of virus will be installed in your PC. 

What these virus Do?

Actually this kind of virus is not much harmful for your computer but it will click some sort of websites/ads that will generate revenue for the hackers. I can't say 100% all benefits but after my research I found these two benefits for hackers. This kind of virus is very annoying and also it will not allow you to watch the videos on full screen, specially in YouTube. 

Can we Uninstall and Install Google Chrome to get rid from this Virus?

No, You can't because the temp files are sorted in your PC itself and once you uninstall and install it then it will not work. You have to delete the temporary files to get rid from it. Apart from that there are few Malware tool that can help you to remove such virus, but those are paid.
