If you have encountered Cleanserp.net, you have to think about a few things. First of all, what is the deal with this suspicious search engine? Have you been redirected to it abruptly? Has it corrupted your default browser, and your homepage and/or default search provider were modified without your permission? If it has entered without your permission, it is obvious that this search tool is a browser hijacker that must be avoided. Have you been pushed into accepting homepage or default search provider modifications when installing suspicious software? This could happen, and, in this case, it is smart to check out the program to see if it is malicious and, possibly, requires removal. Unfortunately, it is most likely that third-party software is involved in one way or another, and you might find that you need to delete Cleanserp.net along with other infections. Due to this, you should scan your PC before you do anything else. Hopefully, serious infections are not running amuck, and you can attend to the hijacker.
Do you live in India and have you recently downloaded unTabs (a potentially unwanted program)? It appears that these are the two main conditions for Cleanserp.net to slither into your operating system. All in all, it is unlikely that unTabs is the only program that is associated with this hijacker. All kinds of other PUPs, adware, and clandestine infections could slither in along with it. Based on our findings, you are most likely to attract the hijacker by executing malicious software bundles that are usually represented via unreliable file-sharing websites. Despite this, even if Cleanserp.net slithers in without your permission, you might think nothing of it because of the way this hijacker is represented. It has a professional-looking interface that displays easy-access links to plus.google.com/collections/featured, google.com/gmail/about/#, images.google.com, and google.com/videohp pages. As you can see, the hijacker is promoting Google services, and so you might not be surprised to discover your searches being redirected to google.com/search. In fact, that should worry you.
Modifying the homepage is not a big deal, and you can handle it yourself, even if you are inexperienced. The same goes with the modifications of the default search provider. If you need a guide, check out the instructions below that show how to change homepage and default search provider settings. While the removal of Cleanserp.net is truly easy, we cannot promise you that the elimination of all active infections will go just as smoothly. Obviously, if you are not experienced to handle serious infections, manual removal is not recommended. Instead, it is wise to implement anti-malware software that can discover and eliminate dangerous components automatically.
