According to our research, Searchdimension.com is most likely to be represented by the add-on named “Search Control.” This add-on is available at the Chrome web store. Of course, you could modify your homepage by clicking the “Ad as Homepage” button represented at the bottom of Searchdimension.com. In this case, you would have to visit this website on your own. Have you been redirected to it via some random ad or pop-up? Unfortunately, you could also be exposed to this strange search tool via malicious software bundles that might carry malicious threats along with it. Obviously, if that is the case, you must scan your operating system for malicious threats immediately. Should you discover malware, we advise deleting it as soon as possible. Overall, even though the search tool is not classified as a threat, it could be associated with malicious parties and even malware, and so you have to think if it is worth keeping around. Even if it allows switching between Google, Yahoo, and Bing search tools when you browse the web, your security should come before the seemingly beneficial services.
Whether you find Searchdimension.com or start.searchcontrolsettings.club (the clone) set as your Google Chrome homepage, you should consider deleting it. The manual removal guide below was created to show how to remove the undesirable extension – if the hijacker came bundled with it – as well as how to reset the browser. Since intrusive tracking cookies could have been placed, resetting your browser is important, and you should not skip this step. Because the homepage and search provider are restored to the default versions during a reset, the guide below also shows how to set the desired settings. Obviously, the manual removal of Searchdimension.com is simple, but we do not know if you will be able to get rid of all other threats by yourself as well. That is if other threats exist in the first place. If you are dealing with complex and dangerous malware, do not hesitate to install an anti-malware tool for automated removal.
