Goldensearch.org is an extremely suspicious search engine. It is difficult to say if this search tool could be installed onto browsers illegally, but this is a potential risk. If you have discovered that the search tool indeed was installed onto your browsers without permission, it should be clear that it requires removal. Our malware researchers believe that even users who have installed the search tool themselves should remove Goldensearch.org. This search engine is too suspicious and too unpredictable to ignore.
You cannot delete Goldensearch.com as a hijacker if it has not corrupted your browsers without your permission. Nonetheless, it is obvious that this is not a reliable search engine, and most users realize that they need to remove Goldensearch.org as soon as they encounter it. Instead of working as a regular search engine, Goldensearch.org redirects to the suspicious Google Custom Search where sponsored search results take over the standard search results you are after. Of course, this is not the only reason why we recommend removing this search tool.
The suspicious Goldensearch.org is the clone of Shellsearch.net and Birdysearch.com search engines. None of them work in a transparent way, and so we recommend removing them all. These search tools are mostly distributed by third-party installers, which means that they are offered to users bundled with other programs. Some of the programs installed with Goldensearch.org might require removal. To know for sure if these programs should be removed, you should install a malware scanner.
