Have you clicked on the Click to Install button located on icouponclipper.com? If the answer is positive, this explains why Search.searchicc.com has shown up on your Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. As for Internet Explorer, it is set as a default search provider on it. In the case of Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome, it replaces homepages and New Tab URLs on them. Because users do not even suspect that this search tool cannot be fully trusted, they do not rush to replace it with a new search engine. This is more the rule than the exception already, specialists say, but we do not blame those users because this search engine pretends well to be legitimate. Probably, you are one of those users who do not like those modified settings applied on browsers if you are reading this article, and we will help you today to undo them. First, read this article till the end, and only then take action.
An official website of Search.searchicc.com has been found by specialists. The extension promoting this search tool can be downloaded from icouponclipper.com, but it seems that it finds other ways to enter users’ computers too. Researchers believe that users can find their browsers’ settings changed after clicking on pop-up advertisements shown by malware installed on their computers. This would explain why so many users have no idea why their web browsers’ settings have been altered. Stay away from ads popping-up on your screen, especially when they promote beneficial software you cannot live without because it is very likely that untrustworthy software will be installed on your computer instead of useful applications. It has also been found that users can allow dubious search tools to show up on their browsers by installing a software bundle carelessly, i.e. without reading the information provided for them on installation windows. What we try to say here is that you need to be more attentive while installing new applications from the web.
