SearchingAll Spyware Profile

SearchingAll is a spyware program disguised as an Internet Explorer toolbar add-on.  Not all toolbars are malicious, but there are some, such as this one, that are.  SearchingAll was first discovered in October of 2004.

It has spyware capabilities as a Data Miner.  It monitors your browsing habits by keystroke logging and collecting URL information.  It does this supposedly in order to deliver targeted advertising.

As a Browser Hijacker, SearchingAll resets your home page and redirects your browser searches to its home page at SearchingAll.com.  The search box and buttons on the toolbar point to the SearchingAll home page.

SearchingAll also will create a ton of desktop shortcuts to its affiliate websites.  This can cause your active desktop to crash, on top of the desktop clutter it creates.

SearchingAll does not offer anything beneficial to you.  It is only an advertising engine.  The hassle it provides isn’t worth what it can possibly offer you anyway.  It slows down your system’s performance and causes browser and active desktop crashes.

You should remove SearchAndBrowse with a reputable adware removal tool such as ZookaWare PC Cleaner.  Manual removal instructions exist on the Internet, but using these techniques is highly discouraged.  They are tedious and time consuming.  They can also be hazardous to your computer’s registry.  With ZookaWare PC Cleaner, you can remove this threat in a fraction of the time, with little technical knowledge, and with no hazard to your computer.
