Searchgol.com (can also be found as Search-Gol) is annoying search engine, which may show up on your computer instead of your favorite search engine. Typically, it replaces homepage and default search engine without an appropriate permission asked. No matter that there are numerous websites that call this program a virus, it can only be called a potentially unwanted program (PUP) because it sneaks inside the system in a bundle with other programs and initiates some changes on the system. In a long term, Search-Gol starts displaying advertisements and sponsored links in user's search results, and may also be used to collect information about user's browsing habits. In order to avoid that, you should remove Searchgol.com from your computer.

HOW CAN I DOWNLOAD Searchgol.com?

Searchgol.com is distributed just like any other PUP – it can infiltrate computer in a bundle with freeware and shareware. For avoiding it, you should pay attention to the whole installation process of the program you want to install and uncheck the check box that agrees to change the start page or default search engine to Searchgol.com. If it manages to get inside the PC, it immediately settles down there and starts working on what it is created for – advertising revenue. Just like always, we recommend using more reputable search engines. If you want to remove Search-Gol from your computer, follow this guide:
