SearchIt Toolbar Adware Profile

SearchIt is an adware program disguised as a toolbar add-on for your browser.  It was first discovered on August 16 of 2004.  It is distributed by Inet-Traffic, Inc., and is distributed through the website http://www.searchit.com/.

While it doesn’t have spyware capabilities, the pop-ups it generates use an inordinate amount of your computer’s resources.  Besides, they are annoying, and most often don’t advertise anything most people want.

It also hijacks your browser.  It resets your home page to its website, and redirects all error pages to its website.  That’s not the worst of it.

Some of the pop-ups are false security warnings.  This is an attempt to get you to download a rogue security tool.

Also, if you uninstall it by normal methods, it removes other files on your computer.  Your Internet connection gets disabled and references to Google are removed from your toolbar listings.

The activity of SearchIt can seriously slow down your computer’s performance.  It can also potentially cause your Internet browser to crash.  Any supposed benefits it offers are not worth compromising the functionality of your computer.

If you are infected with this program, you should remove it immediately with ZookaWare PC Cleaner.  While there are other means to remove SearchIt, ZookaWare PC Cleaner has proven to consistently and completely remove this threat from your computer.
