Viceice.com is not a regular search tool. This one does not offer original services, and it works in an unpredictable manner. Instead of showing its own search results, this tool represents the infamous Google Custom Search. This search tool is based on Google’s core search technology, which means that it provides you with similar services that Google Search does. The main reason why we recommend removing Viceice.com is that this search provider shows seemingly legitimate search results along with unpredictable, sponsored links.

In many cases, the credentials of Google are used only to convince users that they can trust unreliable browser hijackers or search tools that, in reality, must be deleted. Our researchers have found that the suspicious Viceice.com is very similar to another strange search tool, surfvox.com. It is possible that both of these search tools were created by the same company, and all they are likely to care about is the profit generated by representing third-party ads.
Our research has shown that Viceice.com can be promoted by unreliable ad-supported programs and malware that also requires removal. On top of that, this search tool could be introduced by unreliable, malicious software installers.

If you do not recognize and remove these threats in time, your virtual security could be jeopardized, and we want to help you avoid this. Hopefully, you are receiving this information in time.
