About this infection

Any Search Manager is a dubious browser plug-in that people accidentally install. You could get infected when you install free applications in Default settings, and if it manages to contaminate your PC, your browser will have the plug-in attached, and settings will be modified. You will be rerouted to sponsored portals and will be exposed to loads of ads. This allows it to gain revenue so it is only using you. While it is not a direct system threat, it isn’t safe. You could be redirected to infected pages, and worst case scenario, you will end up with some kind of damaging program malware infection if you were rerouted to a dangerous site. If you want to safeguard your OS, you need to terminate Any Search Manager.

Questionable plug-in distribution ways

To put in simply, these types of add-ons are distributed through free programs. Download is also not impossible via browser stores or official pages so you could have voluntarily installed it. But generally, they come as extra offers that, unless you uncheck them, will set up automatically alongside. And by using Default settings when you set up free programs, you’re essentially providing them authorization to install. Those settings do not show you whether something has been adjoined to freeware, so you need to use Advanced (Custom) mode instead. It is easy to block setup if something is indeed attached, and all you need to do is uncheck the offers. If you are careless, you could end up exposing your operating system to likely threats, so keep that in mind. You’re advised to erase Any Search Manager, as you probably installed it accidentally.

Why is Any Search Manager removal necessary

permitting the add-on to stay isn’t recommended as it may cause troublesome consequences. The main reason behind their existence is to make portal owners income by redirecting you.

After that every time you launch your browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome), you will be rerouted to that website. And if you try to reversing the changes, the extension will prevent you from doing it, which means you need to first abolish Any Search Manager. Also, don’t be shocked if you happen upon some strange toolbars and more adverts than normal. While mostly Google Chrome is preferred by these extensions, they may show up on your other browsers too. Picking to use the plug-in may lead to you being exposed to dangerous content, which is why we don’t advise using it. It should be said that those plug-ins could lead to a malevolent program infection, even though they aren’t considered to be malicious themselves.
