Game Searcher Pro
Game Searcher Pro is an extension that you might be introduced to via software bundles and pop-up advertisements introduced via unreliable websites. This extension is directly linked to the gamesearcher.pro online gaming platform, but it does not appear to be represented via it. If you have installed the extension, there is a good chance that you installed it along with other extensions or applications, which is why the first thing we recommend doing is scanning the operating system. Install a trusted malware scanner now, and it will let you know if you need to eliminate any malicious threats. Hopefully, that is not the case, but you want to know either way. All in all, regardless if other threats exist or if the suspicious extension was installed without your permission, there are reasons to delete it. If you cannot wait to remove Game Searcher Pro from your operating system, scroll down to find a guide that will help you with the procedure. If you want to understand the extension before you take any steps to get rid of it, continue reading.
According to our researchers, when people install Game Searcher Pro, search.gamesearcher.pro is likely to be set as the default search provider on your web browser. Let’s dissect this search engine. At first sight, it looks pretty normal. In fact, some people might think it is quite useful because it offers easy-access links to four popular shopping websites: amazon.com, homedepot.com, macys.com, and jcpenny.com. The “search” logo displayed right above the search dialog box mimics the well-known “Google” logo. The same color scheme is used. Although that is unlikely to dupe many users, some might automatically feel more comfortable using the search engine they are unfamiliar with if it seems somewhat familiar. If you enter keywords into the search dialog box, you are routed to webcrawler.com, and advertisements are likely to be shown both at the top and the bottom of every search results page. Needless to say, this search engine appears to be more interested in advertising than anything else, which is the first reason you might decide to delete it from your browser. Our researchers, however, suggest that there are other reasons why users of this search engine should consider deleting the linked extension.
Our research team is still gathering information about Game Searcher Pro and search.gamesearcher.pro. At this point, we do not know exactly which browsers the extension might be compatible with, and so we might be unable to provide you with the instructions you need. If you follow the guide below, you should be able to remove unwanted extensions from Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome browsers, as well as uninstall unwanted applications from Windows. Our guides also include steps that show how to clear browsing data, which is important to do if you want to get rid of any data-tracking technologies. For this purpose, we also include the Microsoft Edge browser. Without a doubt, even if you complete all of the steps shown below, scanning the system with a trusted malware scanner is the right thing to do. Some threats are much more clandestine and can hide themselves, and so just because you do not see malware or do not identify seemingly harmless programs as malicious threats, does not mean that malware does not exist. Undoubtedly, if you want reliable full-time protection, you should take the extra step of installing reliable anti-malware software as well.
