What is SearchNet?
SearchNet is one of those unreliable programs that might enter your system rather secretly. It is very likely that this software is distributed with a help of other programs, for instance, freeware. It does not really matter whether you have downloaded SearchNet yourself or if it has entered your system secretly, you should still remove it from the system. Luckily, it is not very likely that you will have to do that because the program was prevalent in 2006 and it is not as active as it used to be. This piece of software is classified differently by different sources; some researchers call it adware, Trojan, redirect virus, and even a browser hijacker. It might mean that it has some features of all of them. Do you suspect that your system is already infected? We recommend that you erase SearchNet without any further considerations because it is not going to act in any beneficial way.
How does SearchNet act?
One of the main features associated with the operation of SearchNet is the fact that it will modify the settings of the Internet Explorer after the infiltration onto your computer. Thus, do not be surprised if you keep being redirected to searchnet.com and zhongsou.com. Searchnet.com used to be full of advertisements and various sponsored links. However, as the infection is rather old, it is not surprising that searchnet.com is not associated with it anymore. It has been found out that nowadays it offers to search for the information regarding restaurants, theaters, doctors, and hotels. Thus, you should not be afraid of this domain anymore.
Another evidence that SearchNet has infiltrated your system is a wide variety of files that it installs on your computer. Have you already noticed such files as ServeUp.exe, SNHpr.dll, SrvNet32.exe, and SearchNet.exe on your system? You should know that there is no doubt that SearchNet has infected your system. Unfortunately, it is not an easy task to get rid of it because this infection uses kernel mode drivers to protect its files and registry keys from being removed. Of course, you can always try the manual removal, i.e. to delete files and folders one by one.
How to get rid of SearchNet?
As it is not an easy task to delete threats, you should better protect your system in order not to allow any of the infections enter the system. For this matter, you can acquire a reliable security tool like SpyHunter and then keep it enabled 24/7. In addition to this, it is also advisable to ignore all those unreliable programs that you might be offered to download by various ads which you might come across on different websites.
