Searchie is one more program that exhibits quite a few suspicious features; thus, it is not surprising that malware researchers have labeled it as a potentially unwanted program. Unfortunately, quite a few unsuspecting Internet users are simply tricked into obtaining this devious piece of software because its creators tend to use misleading and manipulative marketing techniques. On its official website, this program is advertised as a helpful tool that should improve your ability to search the web. It should allow you to choose the best search engine which would provide the most relevant results in regards to your queries. Unfortunately, the overall functionality of this dubious application is not only limited but at times could turn out to be even extremely annoying. If that was not enough, you should be aware of the fact that in quite a few cases Searchie is distributed in dubious ways, which could even turn out to be alarming. We highly advise you to avoid and even delete this potentially unwanted program if it is ever found fully active on your operating system. Do so by using a comprehensive removal guide that we provide below.
Once Searchie enters your operating system, it will immediately start its questionable functionality. It will embed its suspicious extension to your web browser, which then will trigger fundamental changes to your web browser’s default settings; it will modify your default home page and search engine whether you like it or not. It goes without saying that these seemingly irrelevant changes made by this potentially unwanted program will have extremely frustrating effects on your overall online experience as you will no longer have the ability to start your web browsing sessions on your default home page since you will be forced to use the new, dubious one. The same thing will happen in regards to your default search engine; even though developers of Searchie advertise this program which should provide with an ability to use numerous different search engine, in the majority of cases you will have virtually no way to use any other search provider than the one asigned by it. It should be more than obvious that such activity should not be tolerated; thus, the removal of this potentially unwanted must be executed without any second thoughts.
Another devious feature that played a role while labeling Searchie as a potentially unwanted program is its questionable distribution. We highly advise you to check your operating system for other suspicious programs if you did not install this dubious application yourself. This is critical since it could have come to your PC via a software bundle along with other undesirable programs. If you happen to come across any questionable applications, make sure to delete it along with this potentially unwanted program. It goes without saying that your best bet to keep your PC free of Searchie or any other suspicious application is by having a reliable malware detection and removal tool active on your computer as it can warn you about any devious installers as well as it can terminate any potentially malicious content in an automatic way. Thus, if you do not have such a tool already, make sure to install one as soon as possible; otherwise, your operating system will remain at constant risk of being infected.
Make sure to follow the removal guide of Searchie that we provide below carefully since just a single mistake could result in an incomplete removal. This could have unwanted consequences, to say the least. In some cases, just a few traces of this potentially malicious program could still be enough for it to continue its functionality or worse – it could be used for a silent restoration procedure. To avoid this, we highly advise you to check your whole operating system for traces associated with Searchie as soon as the manual removal has been executed.
