What is MapsWorldSearch?
MapsWorldSearch claims to be “a free application that lets you search maps.” Many users, especially those who travel a lot, think that this program is very trustworthy and beneficial; however, the only thing it will do is place a search.mapsworldsearch.com search engine shortcut on your desktop. It will allow you to check maps; however, we do not recommend using the search box installed on it in order to find the relevant information on the web because you might be really provided with sponsored links. Is it worth keeping programs that do not do anything really beneficial and even might cause harm? We believe not, but it is up to you what to do with MapsWorldSearch. If you decide to get rid of it, read through this article and then use our manual removal instructions in order to do that.
How does MapsWorldSearch act?
Specialists say that MapsWorldSearch will only put a shortcut on the desktop and might install an extension to Google Chrome. Thus, there is no doubt that it is not as beneficial as it advertises to be and it is definitely not “the best directions and maps utility available on the web.” In fact, there is even a possibility that it will expose you to threats. Research has shown that MapsWorldSearch is an advertising-supported application. It means that it shows pop-ups and other kinds of advertisements. These ads might simply redirect you to untrustworthy web pages if you click on them. Therefore, we suggest that you ignore them completely. As has been already mentioned, you should not use the search box placed on search.mapsworldsearch.com, whose shortcut will be created and placed on your desktop after the installation of MapsWorldSearch, too because you might also be taken to unreliable websites after clicking on one of those sponsored links that will appear among your search results. As you can see, it is not so hard to cause harm to the system if MapsWorldSearch is on board. Thus, it would be best to remove it completely.
Researchers working at anti-spyware-101.com say that this program might travel bundled with other unwanted programs too, so if you ever detect it on your system, you should know that there is a huge possibility that other completely unreliable programs are installed on your PC too. You have to detect and remove them all from the system because they might act in an unwanted way. On top of that, they might even download other undesirable programs on your computer. If you decide to find them yourself, you should check the Control Panel and the Add-ons Manager because these unwanted programs usually hide there. If you do not find anything suspicious there, scan your PC with an automatic malware remover.
