The suspicious Cooliosearch.com serves in two ways. First of all, it presents a search box, but if you use it, you will be redirected to plusnetwork.com. This search provider is considered unreliable because it presents sponsored links that are not only useless for your web search, but also can expose you to malicious content. Cooliosearch.com also provides links to popular sites that are placed under such categories as Stream Content, Movies, TV, Sports, and News. Although this service is harmless, you should consider removing Cooliosearch.com because it redirects to an unreliable third-party website and because it can collect information about you. Are you ready to delete this hijacker?
Since Cooliosearch.com might run with the help of browser extensions, and it might come bundled with third-party infections, the removal operation is truly unpredictable. If you reset the browsers, the unwanted search tools will be eliminated, along with browser extensions. Afterward, you can implement an automated remover to delete remaining Windows infections. As for further protection, you do not need to worry about it if you install antimalware software; however, if you choose the manual removal path, you have to figure out a way to protect Windows. We suggest installing a reliable security tool.
