Isearch (malware)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Isearch is a resilient and common adware program that is often installed on a user’s computer from pop-ups or unprotected downloads. Even most firewalls and other computer protection programs are ineffective to stop this program from being downloaded and removed. This program often re-directs pop-ups to your browser, downloads other adware and spy ware programs onto your computer without your consent, captures private details such your local IP address and visited websites, re-installs itself after incomplete deletion, establishes its own .exe program, and disables your firewalls, internet options, homepage, and other vital functions that threaten its own existence.
