Search.com got on your computer after you have installed another free software or add-on that had bundled into their installer this browser hijacker. For example, when you install “Switch Off” from CNET, you’ll also install the Search.com, set your browser homepage to http://t3-1.search.com/ and change your default search engine to search.com.However, when you uninstall “Switch Off” from your computer, your web browser’s default settings will not be restored. This means that you’ll have to remove Search.com Toolbar from your favorite web browser manually.

You should always pay attention when installing software because often, a software installer includes optional installs, such as this browser hijacker. Be very careful what you agree to install. Always opt for the custom installation and deselect anything that is not familiar, especially optional software that you never wanted to download and install in the first place. It goes without saying that you should not install software that you don’t trust.
