GamerzLand Search Extension might look like a useful and a harmless search engine, but our specialists say it is a potentially unwanted program (PUP). It was discovered the extension could show users advertisements belonging to third parties. Given that such content could originate from any web page, there is a risk some of the ads may advertise not the most reliable material, for example, other PUPs, adware, browser hijackers, and so on. For this reason, we believe the application is not worthy of your trust and if you do not see it as a tool that cannot be replaced we would advise you to remove it from your browser. At the moment of writing, GamerzLand Search Extension is compatible just with the Google Chrome browser, and if you need any help erasing the plugin from it, you can follow our recommended deletion instructions available below the text.
GamerzLand Search Extension can be downloaded from lg.gamerz-land.com, but for users to learn about this site, they have to know the application's title. Therefore, our specialists think, the website or the PUP might be advertised on pop-up ads, banners, or other advertisements to spread this extension wider. At this point, you should know that while some of the described ads could be placed on popular torrent or other file-sharing websites, some of them could be displayed by adware or other unreliable applications that could be hiding on your system. Consequently, just to be sure there are no other possible threats on the computer you should do a full system check-up with a trustworthy security.
After being added to Google Chrome, the extension might replace user’s default search provider. Plus, GamerzLand Search Extension may add an icon next to the “Customize and control Google Chrome” button located below the browser’s “X” button. If you click it once you should see a tiny window where you can pick the website you want to search. However, at the time we researched the application we noticed a bit different plugin’s behavior. Instead of sending the submitted search query to the website we picked it redirected it through gmrlnd.com and then displayed Yahoo search results.
Based on our experience with similar PUPs we think GamerzLand Search Extension might be designed to act in the described manner to modify search result and place ads from the software’s third-party associates among them. In exchange for promoting various third-party content, the plugin’s developers could receive advertising revenue from each clicked advertisement. The bad news is there are no guarantees the third-party content will not endanger your system or be a threat to your privacy. Under such circumstances, we recommend using a more reliable search engine. As for this PUP, we believe it would be safer to eliminate it until anything goes wrong.
To erase GamerzLand Search Extension manually, you should access the Google Chrome’s Extensions menu; the way it is shown in the instructions you can see at the end of this paragraph. The second option is to install a reliable antimalware tool you trust, perform a full system scan afterward, and click the provided deletion button.
