Search Window is an application that should help users to find what they are looking for on the web easier and quicker. Unfortunately, it turns out really quickly that Search Window does not do anything really beneficial because it is known to be an ad-supported program which seeks to show hundreds of ads for users and convince them to click on them. It is not surprising at all that Search Window acts in this manner because it does not differ from other applications that are based on the Injekt engine. At first sight, this adware program really seems to be harmless; however, it is not true. Therefore, it would be smart to remove it the moment you detect it on your computer. It is not a serious infection, so it is not very likely that you will face any problems; however, we have still prepared the manual removal instructions and are going to talk about the deletion of this software in this article.

Search Window acts like Results Hub and Search Know, which are also considered to be ad-supported programs, so it is not worth expecting that it will start acting in a useful way. We have checked the End User License Agreement (EULA) in order to find out how this program is going to act and found that it will keep displaying in-text ads, web browsing-related ads, interstitial ads, transitional ads, search-related ads, and full page ads. It seems that Search Window does not even try to hide the fact that it displays commercials. Of course, it does not provide this information on the main page of its official website thesearchwindow.com; however, you will be informed that you “agree that the Software may display advertising to you” in the EULA. Of course, other programs might show commercial ads for you too; however, there is no doubt that Search Window is installed if you can detect the Search Window folder in %Program Files% (%Program Files(x86)%) or %Temp% directories. Of course, this application will apply other changes to the system too.

Have you already started seeing ads with the label “Ads by Search Window” or “Brought by Search Window” on your screen? If yes, we are sure that this program is installed on your computer. Even though it is not very dangerous itself, we still suggest being cautious with it because it will keep displaying ads that might take you to untrustworthy third-party web pages day after day. As there is a possibility that you will find malicious software there, we do not recommend clicking on any of these ads. Of course, it is not the only reason why we suggest that you remove this adware from your system. Specialists working at 411-spyware.com have managed to reveal that this program might collect non-personally identifiable information about users, e.g. interests, demographic information, websites visited, etc. On top of that, it might also record your full name and address if you provide it yourself. All the collected information will be “transferred to servers located in the United States”, according to the information provided in the Privacy Policy. Luckily, you can erase this piece of software and put an end to this.

All the files of Search Window have the signature of Seque Source, which allows our specialists to find out which other programs act in a similar manner. Unfortunately, research has shown that there is a bunch of such applications on the web (e.g. Discovery App, Wander Burst, Blazer Deals, Gravity Space, and Jungle Net). According to our specialists, they all travel in software bundles, which is why they tend to enter systems silently. As you already know, a number of programs that act exactly like Search Window is rather high, so we suggest installing a security tool in order not to encounter any of them again. Only trustworthy software can help you to protect your PC, so install a tool that you know to be 100% reliable.

You can stop commercial advertisements from appearing on your screen rather easily, you need to remove Search Window via Control Panel. If you do that, ads will abandon all your browsers (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox). If you have never tried eliminating applications yourself, use instructions which you will find below this article. You can also delete this adware automatically. All you need to do is to scan the system with an automatic malware remover.
