Where does Searchboro.com come from?
Browser hijackers, similarly to adware programs, are mostly distributed in free software bundles. This is a very efficient method since such malicious bundles are mainly promoted on file-sharing websites and other pages that are visited by hundreds of thousands of unsuspecting users every single day. So schemers obviously pack several malware threats in a bundle, including adware programs, fake alerts, browser hijackers, and potentially unwanted programs most commonly. This means that you can easily infect your system with a number of threats in no time if you install such a bundle. This is why we think that it is important to know how or where you can download such packages.
Basically, it all starts with a click. Namely, you need to click on corrupt third-party ads, such as banners and pop-up ads in order to download bundled installers. This can happen mostly in two ways. First, it is possible that your computer is infected with adware programs and these infections generate such unsafe third-party ads while you are browsing the web. Another possibility is that you land on a suspicious file-sharing website after a web search. A lot of users try to download free tools and files, for example. However, if you do not know which websites are reputable or reliable enough to download your target files from, you may easily end up on one of the malicious sites. Such an unlucky visit could result in your dropping a malicious bundle onto your PC. If you want to make sure that your computer is safe, we suggest that you run a malware scanner right after you delete Searchboro.com.

But as you may know the Internet has no boundaries really apart from a few exceptions, of course, when certain sites are banned in a country. So it is quite possible that you can install this annoying hijacker even if you are residing in Antarctica. One of the main problems with this infection is that you may not even notice the change it makes in your browsers because it looks very similar to Google. In fact, it seems to be a customized Google search page. So you may leave it untouched because you assume that it is all fine to have this search engine in your browsers. But this would be wrong since this search page can introduce you to unreliable third-party ads and links; starting with its main page where there is an ad right below the search box.
This hijacker can manipulate the search results unfortunately by including potentially unreliable third parties’ ads and links. So when you run a web search through this infection, you will be presented with a customized Google search results page that you will believe to be all reliable. But the truth is that cyber criminals can embed their ads and links so you are never safe to click on any content on such a page. If you do not want to find yourself on malicious websites run by crooks and lose money or give up your personal details, we recommend that you remove Searchboro.com ASAP.
