What Is Search Know?
Search Know browser hijacker usually gets inside a computer when you install software from freeware download sites. It then proceeds to show ads in your search results in Google and Yahoo, and changes your default search engine to search.searchitknow.com or searchinterneat-a.akamaihd.net. If you encountered such ads and redirects and want to remove Search Know from your browsers, follow this step-by-step guide.
Is Search Know a Virus?
Search Know is not a virus, per se, but it is malware. Search Know gets installed often without user’s knowledge, when the user installs some freeware app and doesn’t pay attention to the fact that other programs are going to get installed too. Search Know changes browser settings and might prevent the user from changing them back. It shows advertisements in searches from reputable search providers, making non-experienced users think these are legitimate search results instead of ads.
