If you have installed Zoo Toolbar and have not unmarked the checkboxes before clicking Accept, it is very probable that your homepage and search engine have been changed to isearch.zoo.com. The changes will be applied to your New Tab as well; thus, you will keep seeing this search engine all the time. You should definitely get rid of isearch.zoo.com because it is rather suspicious in a sense that it might cause harm to the security of your system via all those ads that it is going to display. In order to erase isearch.zoo.com from your PC, you will have to reset your Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox browsers.
Even though you will notice that your homepage and your search engine have been changed, this application is far from a browser hijacker because it does not do anything behind your back. You have been informed about the changes in the setup wizard; however, not all the people notice that and thus agree with all those changes. Thus, you should always pay much attention to the installation wizard; it is especially true if you are installing freeware or shareware.
As it has been mentioned above, another feature that might cause harm to the system is all these advertisements. They will not only keep bothering you, but you might also end up in unreliable websites after clicking on them. Neither Zoo Toolbar nor isearch.zoo.com is responsible for the content of these websites; thus, you will never know whether you have been taken to reliable website.
Last but not least, even though the toolbar that will be installed alongside isearch.zoo.com might seem useful as it will allow you to access Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest in one click, you should still not keep this application on your PC because it is known to be capable of collecting different kinds of information regarding your browsing activities. In order to prevent this from happening, remove isearch.zoo.com together with Zoo Toolbar.
Do you want to erase the application entirely from your system? You can do that manually or automatically. However, if you choose manual removal, you should definitely scan your system with a reliable tool like SpyHunter because it sometimes happen that not all the elements can be entirely removed.
