Web Browser Search (can also be found as WebBrowserSearch.com) is the adware, which can be installed in a bundle with other programs. Typically, it gets inside its target PC without victim’s permission asked, but it can be prevented by monitoring each installation window of the software. As soon as it reaches its target PC, Web Browser Search gets on each of your Internet browsers, including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. Besides, it sets webbrowsersearch.com as the start page, new tab and default search engine on victim’s computer. From the first sight it may seem that this program is conveniently set to give you a quick access to various online services, but you should take into account that its search engine tracks victims browsing habits and activity on various websites. Besides, it may also reroute your search session to malicious site that distributes malware. That’s why it is not recommended keeping Web Browser Search on computer.


Web Browser Search is created by a legitimate company, so it can be installed manually from its official website. However, there is another way how this redirect virus can get inside the PC - many PC users report about discovering webbrowsersearch.com on their browsers after downloading freeware and shareware on their computers. Typically, such scams are included for monetization purposes but they can be prevented by unchecking unfamiliar entries that show up on installation windows of the software. As soon as it gets inside, it alters some of PC’s parameters, including default search engine and homepage without user’s consent. In addition, it starts annoying redirections to unwanted websites, shows different kinds of pop-ups and causes similar unfair activities. If that sounds familiar for you, you should check your PC for Web Browser Search virus.
