Type: Browser Hijackers
Common infection symptoms:

  • Hijacks homepage
  • Slow internet connection

Search.sidecubes.com

Search.sidecubes.com is a search engine which is directly linked to the SideCubes browser extension promoted by Veristaff at sidecubes.com. It is possible that this search tool will be employed as a browser hijacker by malicious third parties. However, in most cases, especially if you choose to download the aforementioned browser plugin, you will actually need to choose the offered home page and search provider tools yourself. Even if these tools are set for automatic installation – you are provided with the Decline button, and so in this case the tool is not identified as a browser hijacker. Either way, we can help you remove Search.sidecubes.com.

If Search.sidecubes.com has been installed, already you can expect this search tool to connect to the Internet without permission and collects information about browsing activity. What is more, some computer users have discovered that the search engine and the SideCubes extension together can slow down the Internet connection and even lead to abrupt freezes which may last from only a few seconds to long, nerve-wrecking minutes. In general, SideCubes is considered to be a variation of the Snap.do Smartbar, which is why you should not be surprised to discover that virtual security software identify the plugin and the search tool as Snap.do. Did you know that SideCubes is also identical to Side.do?

So far we have not discovered the application and Search.sidecubes.com to travel bundled with third party software; however, it is possible that in the future they will be attached to potentially unreliable and maybe even dangerous threats. This is when the unauthorized Search.sidecubes.com installation could be observed, and in this case the search engine could be identified as a browser hijacker. Of course, this does not change the fact that right now Veristaff software may spy on you, disrupt web browsing and introduce you to advertisements displayed as sponsored search results. These are the main reasons why you should delete Search.sidecubes.com.

Do you know how to delete Search.sidecubes.com and SideCubes? You may choose to follow the manual removal; however, after completing the removal guides below, we recommend that you install authentic security software to ensure that far more clandestine threats cannot enter the operating system in the future. If you want to simplify the task – install SpyHunter, a tool which will remove unwanted tools automatically and enable full-time protection. After this, all you will need to do is change the home page/search provider settings.

  5. Jolanda Sep 25, 2014

    The program can't be found in the programlist. So it can't be removed that easily. Do you have any more suggestions how to get this malware off my laptop?

  12. Melissa Apr 13, 2015

    followed all the steps above, but it doesn't appear on any list to be selected and removed. yet, whenever i open a new tab, there it is. it's not on my search list, it's not on the program/features list. tried just searching my computer for it, to no avail.

    hey guys if you have this virus on chrome, it is attached to the person you are logged into as. So you might want to delete it or stop using it.
