Search Module Plus Description
Security experts consider the Search Module Plus browser tool by Gobzoo Ltd. as a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) with adware capabilities. The Search Module Plus software is distributed among computer users by bundling the app with free software installers because most users prefer to install software via the 'Express' or 'Typical' option. The Search Module Plus program might change your home page, default search provider, and DNS settings as well as install an add-on and a Browser Helper Object. Additionally, the Search Module Plus adware may insert a registry key in Windows to auto-start with your OS at every system boot-up. Security experts add that Search Module Plus may launch a background service that would enable it to display ads, banners, and pop-ups on all web pages the user visits. You might want to keep in mind that the Search Module Plus program functions as a monetization engine for its developers and it may not provide you with safe online content. Many computer users might want to consider removing all files associated with Search Module Plus by using a trustworthy anti-malware utility.
