ZenSearch.com is not a virus or malware. It's just an ordinary search engine, which is mostly distributed in a bundle with free downloads. You can also agree to install this program on your computer if you don't pay enough attention to freeware's installation process. As soon as ZenSearch.com enters computer, it shows up instead of the start page or default search engine. After that, user is forced to use it every time he/she starts browsing on the Internet. No matter that it looks trustworthy, this search engine may return altered search results and show commercial notifications during your browsing. That's why we recommend relying on more reputable search sites, such as Google, Yahoo or Bing.
How can ZenSearch.com infiltrate my computer?
ZenSearch.com can be downloaded from such reputable search sites as CNET, Brothersoft or Softonic. However, you can also download this program on your computer in a bundle with freeware and shareware.

We always recommend choosing custom or advanced installation and unchecking these checkboxes that claim that you agree to make ZenSearch.com your start page or default search engine.
