What is My Search Dock?
If you want to save some money and time while shopping at such online stores as eBay, Yahoo!, and Amazon, you might be about to download My Search Dock, which advertises itself as “the world’s best search enhancer.” We cannot blame you for that because My Search Dock might really seem to be a beneficial application at first sight. Even though it promises to inform users about the pricing of different items at different online stores and thus help people to save money, you should still not trust it and definitely not install it on your computer. The reason why we do not consider My Search Dock a trustworthy program is quite simple – it is known to be an adware program. Generally speaking, it is going to show advertisements, and it seeks to increase the traffic rate of particular web pages. As its primary aim is definitely not to serve users, many users find this software completely useless and extremely irritating. If you are one of those users, you can get rid of this adware whenever you want to.

Users may be shown advertisements within web pages rendered by a browser with the plug-in enabled
Most probably, you will see various coupons and offers on your screen while browsing online stores. Of course, we cannot guarantee that you will not see other types (e.g. pop-ups, banners, in-text ads, etc.) commercial advertisements on your screen too. Actually, it does not really matter which advertisements you see on your screen because the most important thing is not to click on any of them if you do not want to be taken to a corrupted website with malicious content. Specialists say that you should not keep My Search Dock installed if you do not wish to reveal any details about yourself to third parties too because it is very likely that this program will gather information about users’ activities and interests in order to provide them with relevant commercial advertisements.

Many users report that this homepage does not work; however, if you see that it works for you, you should still not click on any links placed on it because you might immediately be taken to an unreliable website and thus experience security-related problems. As you can see, My Search Dock is not a trustworthy program at all, so it is not worth keeping it and using the homepage it sets.
