Do not search using ActiveSearch
ActiveSearch is not a new search engine that you can use to search for the topics you need for work or school. It is actually an adware in disguise. It will attach itself to Internet Explorer. You will find it to be a search toolbar. Through this, you will receive many pop up advertisements. Your internet habits and activity will be monitored. All your requests and searches can be tracked so people will know what it is that you do exactly while you are online. As they may come bundled with adware or software that support ads, you might not know right away that you do have this in your computer. ActiveSearch is launched each time you open Internet Explorer, compromising your computer and privacy every time you surf the internet or check your email.
