Audiovisualizer Search

Audiovisualizer Search may appear in your Google Chrome browser without your installing it knowingly. We are here to warn you that this is a browser hijacker that can hijack your web search requests and take you to manipulated search results pages. Since you may not even realize that you end up on a different search engine page than the one you started your search on, this browser hijacker may operate for a long time presenting you with potentially unreliable third-party advertisements and websites. If you find this malware infection on your system, chances are there are other threats hiding on your computer as well. We suggest that you remove Audiovisualizer Search from your browser right away and run a malware scanner to detect all other threats so that you can clean your PC and restore your virtual security.

It is quite possible that you installed this browser hijacker under suspicious circumstances since its distribution methods can be rather deceptive. Although it used to be available for direct installation via the Chrome web store, its pages has already been removed. This usually happens when a browser extension is found to be potentially harmful or downright malicious, and Google removes it as well as possibly blocks it.

Schemers often use an aggressive method to fool unsuspecting users by tricking them into installing malicious browser extensions. In this case, you are redirected to a malicious page that may not even show any content but a dialog box telling you that you have to install a tool in order to be able to leave that page. However, you should know that simply closing the tab or the browser window can solve this issue without your infecting your computer. Cyber criminals also like to use software bundles to smuggle potentially unwanted programs as well as malware infections to your system. If you want to avoid such threats, you need to stay away from suspicious torrent, shareware, gaming, dating, betting, and video streaming websites, which are the most likely places where you can be exposed to corrupt third-party contents like fake buttons. Since you can always infect your computer with more threats when your computer is already infected, we advise you to delete Audiovisualizer Search and then, use a trustworthy online malware scanner to find all other potential and malicious threats on your system.

The web store page claims, or used to claim, that this tool can be used on all websites even though it is not really clear what it does. We have found that this browser hijacker can record your web searches by forwarding you to or other questionable search engines and then, to a Yahoo or Google search results page. Unfortunately, inexperienced computer users may not even notice that they end up on a different search engine. Please note that this search results page may contain unreliable advertising and sponsored links as well promoted by this hijacker to generate revenue for its creators. If you do not want to end up with more malware threats on your system or in the center of an online scam and lose your money, we suggest that you act now and remove Audiovisualizer Search from your computer.

Finally, we are here with the solution. It seems that it is possible to remove this browser hijacker by deleting the related browser extension via your Extension Manager in your Google Chrome browser. If you have never done this before, you can use our instructions below. If you want to protect your PC against all kinds of malicious threats, it is important that you become a more careful web surfer. We advise you to avoid suspicious websites displaying a lot of questionable third-party ads, clicking on third-party content when in doubt, and downloading free files from shady file-sharing sites. Nevertheless, the best possible way for you to defend your computer is to install a reliable anti-malware program, such as SpyHunter.
