How to Remove SearchExplorerBar From Your Browser

SearchExplorerBar is a piece of adware and spyware that disguises itself as a Microsoft Internet Explorer toolbar.  One reason it does this is to avoid detection by firewalls.  Another reason is so that it will look like it legitimately belongs on your computer—which it does not.

SearchExplorerBar doesn’t just deliver annoying pop-up ads to your computer system.  It also spies on your Internet activity.  It sends the web addresses and titles of web pages that you visit to its home server at Adpowerzone.com.

Using the information it has stolen from you, it will display pop-up ads when certain title keywords from pages you have visited match those of its advertisers.  SearchExplorerBar slows down your browser, especially when it updates itself.

SearchExplorerBar’s presence on your computer may indicate other spyware or adware, as it may download other programs to your computer at any time.  It may also record and report personally identifiable information about you.  A free scan with ZookaWare PC Cleaner will let you know what other spyware is on your computer.
