What is Social2search Adware, And is it Dangerous?

What is Social2Search, and how it differs from other adware

Adware development is a very promising sector for hackers and other Internet scams. In recent years, the number of PC users is growing rapidly and so many people are working directly on the Internet, looking through hundreds of pages every day and visiting hundreds of websites. And if earlier from viruses and adware suffered mostly inexperienced users, but now they were joined by people that are working on the Internet.

You have to agree, it’s pretty easy to miss the download of a file or accidentally click on a confirmation, if you are flipping websites uninteresting to you or answer the recurring questions all day. Every day the world becomes more and more PC users, and adware is becoming more efficient and more profitable. It infects computers, and starts to show ads in browsers until you delete it.

But not every user is able to do it, and sometimes it takes several days or even weeks before the program is finally removed from the computer. During this time, the owner of the infected computer manages go to malicious links few dozens of times, which helps fraudsters to create traffic to third-grade websites, and bring them to the top of issuance. At the same time, adware manages to greatly clog the computer, and let a lot of other viruses to enter the system.

Those who are often faced with clogged computers, or those who have already been victims of viruses or adware, probably know such names as DNS Unlocker, Wajam, Albireo or Provider. These adware samples were the most intrusive, active and difficult to remove until recent time. Few months ago, the new program called Social2Search had appeared in the Web. It quickly settled on this, "market", and is now ahead of all other competitors by all odds.

This program is so dangerous not because of its features, but because of its well-written description and user-friendly interface. These two factors work to lull the user’s vigilance, and convince him that Social2Search it a good program. According to the description, Social2Search is a special tool that interacts with such well-known social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter.

The purpose of this interaction is to obtain information about the visits of your friends to various websites, and their “likes”, and show you this information. Those who install the program are not concerned that such actions aren’t suitable for everyone. In addition, the developers claim that Social2Search may adversely affect your computer, resisting the actions of other programs (obviously, anti-viruses), and that it is very difficult to remove.

Despite this, users are in a hurry to set Social2Search and to use its non-existent functions. For reference, any social network in the first place shows likes of your friends, and only then - all the rest. So, Social2Search deceit entices the user to install, does not perform the claimed function, prevents the user to use the Internet, and displays tons of ads on each page, and each new tab. The only way to stop this outrage is to remove Social2Search from your computer.

How to remove Social2Search

As I said earlier, Social2Search isn’t very tricky as a program. You can use the standard removal techniques to get rid of it. But, if the program had functioned on your PC for more than a day – you may face some difficulties. Anyway, there’s two ways to uninstall Social2Search: you can do it manually, or with help of AV software.

Both ways are completely safe, and were tested many times with thousands of users, but there is one major difference: manual removal is one-off, and the protection of antivirus will last for a long time. So, it’s up to your decision. If you want to protect your PC from all kinds of adware and viruses for years – you should purchase the reputable anti-viral tool. We advise you to use Spyhunter, because it’s one of the most effective and low-price tools.

It also has other impressive features, like 24/7 tech-support, wide and daily updated database, plain and friendly interface, low CPU usage. But, if you just want to remove Social2Search quickly and forget about all viruses and removal programs – just pass the link to a full-length article about Social2Search removal.
