XeeSearch.com is a suspicious search provider which might be installed onto your PC after you download a browser plugin from fbdrawer.com (FB Drawer). The promoted tool is meant to provide you with the Xee Smileys Bar on Internet Explorer and Facebook Smileys on Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox browsers. As our malware researchers have discovered, the plugin is quite unreliable and it can cause serious browser disturbances. For example, IE users might discover that their browsers crash soon after being launched. We are sure that this is not how you want to run your browsers, and so you should delete the plugin without further delay. You should also remove XeeSearch.com, a search tool which comes bundled.

The FB Drawer attracts lots of computer users who wish to apply smileys when chatting on Facebook. Unfortunately, the installation of this product is quite misleading and difficult. Some computer users find it impossible to install the program if they choose the Express installation instead of the Custom one. If you choose the Custom, you will discover that XeeSearch.com is suggested as a default search provider and home page for your Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox browsers. Even though you can choose to decline these applications, in most cases computer users do not even notice them.

Unfortunately, XeeSearch.com is not a beneficial search tool because it only presents two search modules –Web and Image. Since the search tool does not present unreliable search results and only displays a few ‘Ads by Google’ on the right side, we do not identify it as highly malicious. Nonetheless, if you have chosen to install FB Drawer and you were not informed about the home page/search provider replacements, you certainly can categorize it as a browser hijacker. Needless to say, no matter how beneficial a tool might appear, you should not trust it if has been installed onto your computer without your consent.

If you wish to remove FB Drawer and delete XeeSearch.com, you firstly need to follow the manual removal guides below. Afterwards, you should make sure that all related components are deleted from the system. You can use a reliable malware scanner to detect browser hijacker related files. Then employ a legitimate malware detection and removal tool which will make sure that your operating system is shielded against computer infections in the future.
