How to remove Qozmo Search

Qozmo Search is a search engine that can be exploited by malicious third parties to redirect you to affiliated sites. This search engine generally affects users in the Netherlands as the whole page, and other related sites are in Dutch. If you notice that you get redirected through Qozmo Search often, you should scan your computer with the SpyHunter free scanner because there is a good chance you have unwanted adware applications on board. You should also restore your browser settings to default in order to rid of Qozmo Search permanently.

This search engine is related to mavoo. NET that is published by LinkFeed LLC. However, there is no direct download link that will allow you to install one. Qozmo Search most likely gets distributed around in software packages, so it would not be surprising if you had more than just one unwanted application on board. This means that whatever you recently installed on your PC, it has modified your browser settings and other Internet preferences. As a result, when you try to open a Web site, rather than going straight to the page, you get redirected to Qozmo Search and then land on the site you want to go.

Although you end up on the Web site you want to be on, it does not mean that you must tolerate such redirects. Constant redirects to Qozmo Search mean that your web surfing habits are tracked. Some adware and potentially unwanted program collects information on what sites visit, and that is most likely done for online marketing purposes. Thus, in the end it could result in the onslaught of advertising that would be customized according to your tastes and preferences. Qozmo Search does not display any pop ups or other types of advertising itself, but it can easily be used as an information gathering tool by trusted third parties.

Needless to say, constant exposure to commercial third-party content does not mean that you will get infected with malware, but that is also a possibility. Hence, if you want to help protect your computer from damage, you need to delete Qozmo Search as soon as possible. As referred to in the first paragraph, you will most probably need to hire a licensed anti-spyware tool to search for potentially unwanted programs because Qozmo Search does not have an uninstall utility.

Nevertheless, you can remove all the unwanted programs from your computer via Control Panel manually, and we also provide instructions on how to reset your browser settings to default. For any questions, do not hesitate to leave us a comment.
