  1. What is Email Search Tools? The Malwarebytes research team has determined that Email Search Tools 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. How do I know if my computer is affected by Email Search Tools? You may see this entry in your list of installed Chrome extensions: this icon in the Chrome menu-bar: this changed setting: and these warnings during install: How did Email Search Tools 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 Email Search Tools? Our program Malwarebytes can detect and remove this potentially unwanted program. 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 Email Search Tools? No, Malwarebytes removes Email Search Tools completely. How would the full version of Malwarebytes help protect me? We hope our application and this guide have helped you eradicate this hijacker. As you can see below Malwarebytes Browser Guard, as well as the full version of Malwarebytes would have protected you against the Email Search Tools hijacker. It would have blocked their website, giving you a chance to stop it before it became too late.
