Is SugarSearch dangerous?

Everyone should know that all the programs for browsers including SugarSearch, no matter if they are functional, are the vulnerabilities for a browser where they are installed. The software companies that created browsers release update patches periodically, due to which the browser safety is perfect. The occurrence of any browser add-on can put the browser security at stake. And, consequently, some web swindlers are able to infect your computer or thieve your private information. If you cannot picture your browser without browser extensions, then I can advise you to download browser programs from well-known vendors only, probably it will promote you to protect the PC. But you should know that it is better not to have any browser add-ons at all.

But if you still want to download one or another add-on then you should be prepared that this add-on will have permission to collect your sensitive data that you leave on diverse social networks and can pass it to the third parties. You should know that to download a browser add-on is like installing an utility. Will you install software if its vendor is untrustworthy? I think, no. So, you also should think about the browser add-on that you are eager to install.

SugarSearch, as a promotional extension, is more harmful, because you cannot be sure that the advertising notification is genuine and that the web address that states in the ad is secure. If you are eager to make use of SugarSearch or any other add-on that demonstrates you special deals then be ready that it can deceive you.

Is your computer infected with SugarSearch?

SugarSearch like other adware programs has several common symptoms that will help you to define if your system is infected with it or not. Here is the list of them:

  • Many ads shown by SugarSearch
  • Very slow performance
  • Antivirus software detects some dangers
  • Some changes in the browser (toolbars, homepage, search engine)
  • Search results are hijacked
  • SugarSearch adds its files, DIRS and registry entries

Manual and Automatic Removal Methods?

Manual removal method that you can perform to remove SugarSearch from browsers are not dangerous and not so difficult as you may think. Possibly, only automatic way of removal is easier. This method is very efficacious since the browser vendors worry about your right to download and delete any browser add-ons. This way of removal will give you a chance to delete all the undesirable browser add-ons and you will not be shown its advertisements any more. But occasionally, using this way of removal users notice that the adware is installed again in the browser and they need to find any other methods to remove it.

Of course there is another manual removal method where you should delete files, folders and registry entries. The described technique is not harmful in situation if you can perform it cautiously or let the expert follow it. To make this process safer you should create the backup of the registry. You should keep in mind that only the itemized parts of the extension should be removed and no one more otherwise the PC will not load. If you do not realize what registry key is and where it should be found, then it is better to follow automatic technique in order not to damage your PC.

Yet the most powerful and the most secure instructions are automatic. Downloading any antimalware software that includes SugarSearch in its base of viruses, you will remove this unwanted software promptly and the add-on will not annoy you again as the antivirus software will protect your PC for the future.

Concerning the sums of money that users may pay for the removal of the virus I should say that some removal techniques are 100% free of charge, for example manual removal from browsers, manual professional removal (if you will do it by yourselves), free antivirus software and the removal from Control Panel. But not all of them are effective. The information about the effectiveness of these uninstall techniques I describe in the table that is called ‘Removal methods statistics’ below. Speaking about the paid ways of virus removal, I should enumerate the Computer Repair Shop Service and paid Antivirus program.

These methods are the most forceful. In spite of the great distinction in the price (Repair Shop service depends on the complexity of the problem and may cost up to $300, but paid antivirus costs up to $60) these removal techniques are almost equal in the effectiveness and in the results. I should also mention that paid antiviruses always has support service (sometimes free) that will solve your problem like in an expensive computer repair shop.

Computer Repair Shop $170-$210 +++ +++ up to 4 days
Paid Antivirus $25-50 +++ +++ up to 1 hour
$0 +/- +/- up to 3 hours
From Control Panel $0 +/- ++ up to 1 hour
Manual Removal (Professional) $0 + up to 4

How to protect Your System from SugarSearch and other viruses

I hope this page was good for SugarSearch Removal. But in order to guard your system from different alike browser add-ons and from all other dangerous programs, so you can install any antispyware and antivirus software. It is better to choose a program that has a expanded signature base, everyday update release and real-time protection. Merely such a tool is able to guard your computer. It is useful to scan your system for malware at least weekly.

Spyhunter agrees with all the enumerated demands. So, I think it is able to protect the computer better than any other and yet it can provide a real-time bar to all the zero-day viruses. The mentioned easy-to-use program will do a scan for you. It will reveal all the viruses and even all the probably undesirable programs. If you have any useful utility for your work, but Spyhunter detects it as the malicious tool, but you are utterly positive that the program cannot be a virus, so you can add it to Exclusions and Spyhunter will not delete it and never will define it as a malicious object again. If you are going to scan only one file, then you are welcome to select Custom Scan feature. You can also use Process Guard or Registry Guard of the program for your accommodation.

I also want to advice you some helpful things that will protect your PC from SugarSearch and other malicious objects in the future:

  • Do not download any free of charge software from unknown vendors. If you do not like to pay for browser add-ons, then you should be very careful during the installation of the application. You should not miss the checkbox (usually small letters) that is responsible for the download of any other free programs. You should uncheck this checkbox.
  • Do not visit any dangerous websites (porn, for adults, websites of unknown free software), they usually contain some trojans or other variants of malicious programs.
  • Do not use torrents or other sharing web services, because you can download malicious application instead of the wanted file.
  • Do not open file send per email from unknown people. It can be malicious.
  • Install any antivirus program and make a scan of your computer at least once a week.
