Judging from its name, Ultimate Searcher should boost your web search experience, but judging by our research, this program is just a nuisance that can actually cause quite a lot of trouble. This browser extension is a potentially unwanted program because it can be quite intrusive, interfering with your web browsing habits. Users often do not grasp the risks behind having a potentially unwanted program on their systems, but when a program you did not plan to install pops up on your screen, you should definitely feel worried about this. Hence, the sooner you remove Ultimate Searcher from your PC, the better.
The thing about this application is that it is quite far from malicious infections. It even has an official page on the Chrome Web Store. However, it is far more likely that users install the extension on their browser in other ways. Potentially unwanted programs tend to come bundled in software packages or via various redirects. For instance, we have found that Ultimate Searcher often gets installed via pop-ups and redirects that users experience when they access unfamiliar websites. For instance, if you land on a page that is full of various advertisements, there is a good chance that it will also distribute potentially unwanted software.
A pop-up that adds Ultimate Searcher to your browser is very likely to redirect you to yhit.press/b.php. This page also displays a pop-up, with the Stay and OK options. The pop-up will offer you to add the extension to your browser, and it may also make your browser go into the full screen mode (which, can otherwise be opened by pressing the F11 key). Eventually, if you agree with everything this pop-up window has to say, Ultimate Searcher will be added to your Chrome browser. Luckily, the extension works only one browser, but if it comes in a software package, the other programs that come with it could affect your other browsers too.
Why is Ultimate Searcher potentially harmful? Needless to say, the extension is not there to infect you with malware or steal your financial information. However, it could be rather vulnerable to third-party exploitation. For example, the information collected about your web browsing habits by this extension could be used by malevolent third parties, and you could end up getting exposed to dangerous websites. In the worst-case scenario, this affair could result in a malware infection, although that is very unlikely. It is more likely that Ultimate Searcher would slow down your browser and spam you with random commercial ads.
Whichever it might be, you should not tolerate a program can interferes with your web browsing habits. It is not safe to keep Ultimate Searcher on your computer, and computer security experts recommend removing the extension at once.
You need to open your browser’s settings menu and delete the program from the list of extensions. We have the manual removal instructions ready for you, but if you think that manual removal is not your thing or that you might have more unnecessary apps on-board, you can always make use of a legitimate antispyware program that will do the job for you automatically.
