- Strange toolbar installed without Your permission

- Changes default search engine
Golsearch.com is a search engine that you can use like any search provider and which is also promoted by a toolbar called Gol-Search, also known as Search-Gol. The Search-Gol promotes the search engine searchgol.com, but now, another, very similar search engine is promoted by an identical toolbar. The browser extension is compatible with Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, and can be distributed along with other free applications. If you do not remember installing the toolbar and now think that your browsers are hijacked, it is very likely that you have recently installed some other application. Always pay attention to the information that you are provided with by the installation wizard so that you can prevent unwanted changes.
As for the search engine golsearch.com, it is presented at info.golsearch.com, where it is openly stated that Golsearch has partners that enable computer users to set golsearch.com as the home page of a browser during the installation of various software programs.
Golsearch.com is a search engine that can be customized. It allows users to change the background and add links to the startup page. Moreover, at the top of the home page, it has a button named “Top sites”, which opens a box containing top 1000 most popular websites, including video streaming websites, social networking websites, commercial websites, and much more. These seemingly harmless features may encourage you to keep golsearch.com as your home page and default search provider, but you should bear in mind that the search results retrieved by golsearch.com may not be as likeable as the user interface of the search engine. The search engine golsearch.com has no control over third parties and do not endorse them by displaying their advertisements and links, which means that display ads on the startup page, and the links that you are provided on the search engine results page do not belong to golsearch.com.
In order to remove gosearch.com from the browsers and restore their former setting, you can use the following instructions, but if your operating system is not protected against malware and spyware, you should use a spyware removal tool. We recommend using SpyHunter because this application can easily eliminate golsearch.com from the browsers and safeguard the system against rogue anti-virus programs, browser hijackers, adware programs, Trojan horses and many other threats.
