What is Audiovisualizer Search?

Where does Audiovisualizer Search come from?

It is not a good sign that this browser extension is no longer available in the Chrome web store. We also have not been able to find any official promotional page that would offer this tool. This obviously makes this extension rather suspicious. You may wonder how it is possible then that you can find it in your infected browser. Well, schemers have alternative ways to make unsuspecting users install this malicious threat. The most likely way for you to let this browser hijacker on board is to click OK on a dialog box that may pop up when you land on a suspicious website all of a sudden. This pop-up may make you believe that you have to click OK in order to be able to leave that site, which is obviously not one that you would intend to view.

However, once you say "yes" to this malicious pop-up, you install this tool in the background and this browser hijacker makes the necessary modifications to your browser settings. You may not even realize what is happening and this is why most victims do not even recall installing this hijacker. As you can see, one click on the wrong button or content can have serious consequences. This is why it pays to be a more aware web surfer and to think twice before clicking on anything really. It is also rather risky to click anywhere on any website when your PC is infected with adware or a browser hijacker. Such infections may hijack legitimate content and when you click, you could be taken to malicious websites or you could directly drop serious infections in the background. We suggest that you scan your PC with a reliable malware scanner after you delete Audiovisualizer Search from your browser.
