If you have a choice, do not let Searchbee.net take over your homepage and/or default search provider. Although this search engine is not classified as a serious infection, our research team has found that it is not a highly useful or reliable tool either. Needless to say, if it has taken over your browser already, you must have realized yourself just how useless this seemingly reliable search tool truly is. Instead of showing search results that would correspond to your search queries, it does not show any search results at all. It is believed that the tool is inactive temporarily, but we do not know when it would be back up again. If it starts showing search results again, you should refrain from interacting with them because they are most likely to represent advertisements. Why should you not interact with them? That is recommended because the advertisers using the search tool are unknown and, therefore, unpredictable. We advise deleting Searchbee.net and employing a more reliable tool instead.
Are you an advertiser looking for a platform to showcase your offers? If you are not, you might not even know that Searchbee.net offers advertising services. If you click the “Advertise With Us” link found at the bottom of the search engine, you will find yourself on a page representing the answers to some of the questions that potential advertisers might have. One of the answers declares: “Ads appear on many types of search results, including web, images, videos, etc. Ads on this search engine have been designed to be aesthetic yet noticeable.” This proves that the search results shown via Searchbee.net include third-party advertisements, and, unfortunately, we know nothing about them. That is because the creator of the search engine has chosen not to disclose any information about this. In fact, there is no information about anything, due to which the search engine becomes even more suspicious and mysterious. If that is something you are ready to just ignore, remember that reliable, legitimate tools are the ones that are transparent about their activity.
The chances are that Searchbee.net was installed without your notice. That does not mean that it was installed illegally, but it could have been attached to a different program. This is where things get tricky. We do not know whether the search engine was attached to reliable and harmless programs or malicious and misleading ones. Do not rush to assume that the software installed onto your PC is harmless because the creators of malware are smart, and they can create highly believable disguises. This is why you need to be more cautious, and a legitimate malware scanner can help you with that. If threats exist, they will be included in the list of detections, and you will be able to make a decision regarding how to clean your operating system. Needless to say, it is very important that you think about this before you initiate the removal process because, of course, you want to be efficient and successful.
Resetting web browsers in not difficult, and anyone can handle it. The problem is whether or not that is enough to get the operating system completely clean, and that is unlikely to be the case. If you only needed to remove Searchbee.net, resetting the browser would be enough, but other threats are likely to be active, and they could be more dangerous. What if they are and what if you cannot get rid of them manually? In this case, you might benefit from investing in a legitimate anti-malware tool. Alternatively, you can analyze every single threat that is found and then delete them manually. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee success if you choose this path. Hopefully, you now have enough information to make a decision that leads to success. If you cannot seem to delete Searchbee.net or existing threats manually, do not hesitate to contact us via the comments section.
