  1. What is Search Button? The Malwarebytes research team has determined that Search Button is a search hijacker. These so-called "hijackers" manipulate your browser(s), for example to change your startpage or searchscopes, so that the affected browser visits their site or one of their choice. This particular one closes your search tab and opens a new one with their own search engine. It also adds recommended searches to the search results. How do I know if my computer is affected by Search Button? You may see this entry in your list of installed Chrome extensions: You may have noticed these warnings during install: How did Search Button get on my computer? Browser hijackers use different methods for distributing themselves. This particular one was downloaded from the webstore: after a redirect from their website: How do I remove Search Button? Our program Malwarebytes can detect and remove this search hijacker. Please download Malwarebytes for Windows to your desktop. Double-click MBSetup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program. When your Malwarebytes for Windows installation completes, the program opens to the Welcome to Malwarebytes screen. Click on the Get started button. Click Scan to start a Threat Scan. When the scan is finished click Quarantine to remove the found threats. Reboot the system if prompted to complete the removal process. Is there anything else I need to do to get rid of Search Button?
