ZoneAlarm Search. How to Remove? (Uninstall Guide)

removal by - -   | Type: Browser Hijackers

ZoneAlarm Search is a search engine, which is presented as 'powered by Google'. However, after using it for some time, it becomes obvious that this site not only returns altered search results, but shows various pop-up advertisements that redirect people to sponsored domains. In most of the cases, this site shows up when users download/update ZoneAlarm Firewall or other ZoneAlarm programs on their computers. It can appear instead of the start page and default search engine on all web browsers that can be found on machine. If it has infiltrated your computer, you should be careful in order to avoid unexpected redirections to malicious site. Please, check your PC for browser hijacker, which may be closely related to this search engine.

HOW CAN I GET ZoneAlarm Search ON MY COMPUTER?

In most of the cases, ZoneAlarm Search comes in a bundle with ZoneAlarm programs. However, it has also been reported to be related to browser hijacker virus. If you want to prevent its infiltration, you should always have updated anti-virus and anti-spyware installed on your PC. Once inside, it alters PC's settings and starts making its victim use ZoneAlarm Search when he/she begins browsing on the Internet. Beware that it may return altered search results that may redirect you to unwanted websites. In addition, it may also start showing continuous pop-up ads and notifications. Once again, we don't call this search engine malicious but its creators clearly use unfair distribution methods. If you want to remove ZoneAlarm Search, follow this guide:

Completely useless instructions. Zone Alarm Search does not appear as an installed program and is greyed out in add-on management within the browser.
