What Is SafeSearch & How To Remove It

SafeSearch is a program that provides a web search engine (www.safesearch.net) and toolbar which are promoted via other free programs, and once installed on your computer will hijack your browser homepage and replace your default search engine.
This program will also display ads and sponsored links in your search results, and may collect search terms from your search queries.

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.


You can try and remove SafeSearch manually but its a tedious process and is not guaranteed to work. Now there's a completely automatic way to remove/uninstall SafeSearch without having to manually delete files and go through registry keys.

With one click of the 'Fix Items' button, Spy Hunter not only removes SafeSearch , other trojans, malware, adware and program leftovers but also speeds up your PC!

Instructions on How To Remove/Uninstall SafeSearch

Step 1: Download & Install Spy Hunter.

Step 2: Click the 'Scan' Button

Step 3: Review scan results and click "Fix Items".
