Do you know what Search Window is?
Search Window is not a very trustworthy application even though it promises to help users search the web more efficiently. Actually, it is not surprising at all that it only pretends to be a beneficial piece of software because it is known to be an ad-supported (adware) program. In other words, this application is only going to provide all kinds of ads for the users. Unfortunately, you will see commercials no matter which browser you use because Search Window is compatible with Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, and older versions of Google Chrome. Of course, it is possible to remove this ad-supported program from the system and put an end to all its activities. If you find it hard to delete Search Window or simply do not know where to start, you should definitely read this article from beginning to end. After doing that, you should use our manual removal instructions.
To make sure that Search Window is really responsible for the ads you see on your screen, you should check the %Program Files% (32-bit Windows OS) or %Program Files(x86)% directories. If you can find the Search Window folder with such files as 7za.exe, firstname.lastname@example.org or 310eeba3-f844-4bdb-8204-0f7738a73264.dll, there is no doubt that Search Window is installed on your system. Of course, you might not have done that yourself. Either way, it would be best to eliminate this Injekt-based adware from your system. Make sure that you do not allow Results Hub and Search Know to enter your system too because they act in the same manner as Search Window. In other words, they will flood your screen with different types of commercial ads as well.Search Window screenshot

It is not exactly clear who has published Search Window; however, we know that this company uses the Seque Source signature – it will mark all the files with it. Research carried out by our security specialists has shown that this company probably receives money from third-party web pages, so this ad-supported program is going to display in-text ads, web browsing-related ads, interstitial ads, transitional ads, full-page ads, pop-ups, and other kinds of ads. It simply wants to lure users into clicking on any of those commercials. Unfortunately, many users do that because they want to find out more about the product or service which is being advertised. Security specialists say that it is a dangerous activity because these ads might redirect you to bad web pages very quickly. Users agree to use Search Window at their own risks by installing this adware on their PCs, which means that nobody will protect them from harm.
It is strange that it is impossible to download Search Window from its official website thesearchwindow.com. In fact, we cannot find much information about it there too; however, we are sure that this program is usually spread in software bundles. It is not likely at all that it travels alone, so we suggest that you scan your system with a diagnostic scanner after you get rid of Search Window. Have you managed to find out other threats on your PC? Delete them all ASAP because they might download adware and other threats without permission.
You should not expect that Search Window will stop showing commercial ads one day because it will not, which means that the only thing that you can do in order not to see it anymore is to eliminate it fully. We do not think that it will be difficult to do that because this adware can be removed via Control Panel. Of course, if you have never tried erasing a program, you should use instructions you can find below. People who do not know much about PCs and malware should eliminate threats from their PCs automatically.

Other threats might exist on your computer too. Our manual removal instructions will not help you to remove them from your system.

Other security tools exist on the web too, but not all of them are reliable, so you should decide very carefully which security software to install on the system.
