Search Adventure is not the kind of extension and adventure you want to experience unless you enjoy the risk of being exposed to potentially unsafe and harmful web content. We have found that this extension can appear in your Google Chrome browser when a browser hijacker finds a way to your computer. This usually happens via freeware bundles even if this hijacker does have an official web page. This unreliable search engine promoted by this hijacker claims to be a “simple and elegant new tab for fast web searching with your selected theme. Includes widgets for date and time.” In other words, it pretends to provide you with breath-taking background images for your web searches, but somehow fails to deliver. Not only you may not see any nature photos to take your breath away, but you may also be introduced to manipulated search results pages. We advise you not to click on any content displayed by this tool. As a matter of fact, we suggest that you remove Search Adventure as soon as possible.
This questionable browser extension, which only seems to affect the newer versions of Google Chrome, has a promotional page, searchadventure.net. You can directly install this useless tool, but we would like to warn you about the permissions you are supposed to grant if you want to add this extension:
To us it seems that such an unreliable tool gets too much freedom and this may harm your privacy. Revealing your physical location to a browser extension that may be exploited by cyber criminals could be one of the worst things you can do. Another official source to install this search page from is the Chrome web store: chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/searchadventure/oloaolgmbpcpgcihhklhodkdlopifppi. It seems that this extension is quite a new one since only 1 user has installed it through the store. But unfortunately, it is very unlikely that your version comes through these channels.
In fact, it is more likely that you download it in a malicious bundle containing several malware infections to multiply your security issues in one go. It is possible that after a web search you end up on unfamiliar and questionable file-sharing websites where you are presented with a number of misleading third-party ads. You may believe that you click on a Download button, for example, yet you simply download a whole bunch of infections. If this browser hijacker is on board, you should check your system for more infections after you remove Search Adventure.
If you seen now why we suggest that you remove Search Adventure, please find our instructions below this article in order to assist you with the necessary steps. In fact, all you need to do is reset your Google Chrome browser and this should do the trick. However, if you have had enough of experiences with malware infections and you wish to have peace of mind, we recommend that you invest in a reliable anti-malware application. Also, it is important to mention that for best results, you should keep all your programs and drivers up-to-date at all times so that cyber criminals cannot take advantage of you or your files.
