Have you started seeing more advertisements after installing Search Awesome? It is not surprising if you have because this seemingly beneficial search assistant is an advertising-supported program (adware) that can inject sponsored content into the search results you see. If you live in the United States, the infection can also redirect your searches to Yahoo Search via searchpage.com. Note that even though Yahoo Search is considered to be reliable, the ad-supported program could make the search results completely untrustworthy. If you live in a different country, the adware can do the same, except that it is unlikely to redirect searches. Without a doubt, the suspicious and unpredictable advertisements shown are the main reason to delete Search Awesome from the operating system. Luckily, it appears that you should be able to get rid of this unreliable piece of software by uninstalling it. The bad news is that you are unlikely to be done with the removal of malware after that.
Search Awesome does not have an official installer. It has an official website, but an installer is not offered. The website we are talking about is searchawesome.net, and it discloses some interesting things about the suspicious advertising-supported program. For example, the “Uninstall” section suggests that Search Awesome also has a Chrome extension. Have you found a suspicious add-on installed along with the program? If you have, you need to remove it as well. Speaking of removal, we have no doubt that the suspicious adware deserves it. The creator of this program must understand it as well; otherwise, it would not be employing concealment practices. Our research team has found that the registry entries and folders representing adware are named randomly or using funny versions of the original name. What is the purpose behind that? We believe that this is meant to make it harder for you to delete it. Another strange thing that we found was that the signature of this adware can be modified daily, and that is not a normal thing. Do you still think that this adware is harmless?
As you already know, Search Awesome does not have an official installer, which is why we have to think about the possibility that this advertising-supported program is spread via software bundles. Do you remember installing this adware along with other unfamiliar programs? We recommend analyzing them with the help of an up-to-date malware scanner. If any malicious threats are active, you want to know about them so that you could get your operating system cleaned as soon as possible. What if your operating system is infected by multiple infections that you cannot delete manually? A trusted anti-malware tool can be very helpful in this case.
