SonicSearch claims to be “the best free search app.” The program has an official website, so the majority of users get it from there, but, of course, this program might find other ways to slither onto computers. People usually download SonicSearch themselves because it promises to improve your web searching experience. In addition, it says that it is “100% virus free.” We agree that SonicSearch looks like a decent application; however, we cannot confirm that it really does what it promises to do because we have found that it is an advertising-supported application (adware). In other words, this program shows ads, and there is a possibility that it has been published in order to do only that. The publisher receives money for every click on ads, so it is very likely that you will see hundreds of them on your screen. Advertisements are not only annoying, but they might also expose you to threats, so we recommend that you delete the program in order to stop them from appearing. In the meantime, make sure that you ignore all commercials.
SonicSearch claims to be a free program, but it says that it will show you ads in order to be able to provide you with the free service. Research carried out by our specialists has revealed that you will most probably see pop-ups, coupons, shopping suggestions, and banners. These ads look decent, but it is better not to click on them because you might end up on a corrupted website full of malicious software instead of finding out more about the advertised product or service. Even though adware programs mainly show commercial advertisements, they might perform other activities too. Specialists say that it might record non-personally identifiable information about your Internet habits. In addition, it might use your Internet connection. We believe that it needs your Internet connection in order to send the gathered data, but nobody truly knows what it will do.
As the information provided on the official website of SonicSearch claims, you might have been provided with additional software offers. If you have clicked on the Accept button, there is a huge possibility that you have installed suspicious programs (e.g., a search toolbar) on your PC. Of course, nobody can guarantee that other undesirable programs have not been installed. Actually, you might not know that your PC contains unreliable programs. If you want to check your system’s condition, you can scan your PC with a diagnostic scanner. We recommend using the SpyHunter scanner for this matter.
SonicSearch does not install extensions to browsers, so you will be able to delete it via Control Panel. If you have never tried doing that, you should use our manual removal instructions. Another way to delete this adware program is to scan the system with an automatic malware remover. You should use only reliable tools for this matter because those untrustworthy ones might really put your system in danger. If you are going to delete SonicSearch manually, do not forget to erase other undesirable programs that might have been installed on your PC alongside SonicSearch.
