What is NewSearch 4?

The New Search adware program injects advertisements with its affiliate ad providers in order to serve a number of ad types including banner, inline text links and popups.

Once infected by this common symptoms include:
- Random web page text is turned into hyperlinks.
- Web pages become extremely slow to download due to the multiple ads.
- Browser popups appear which recommend fake updates or other software.
- Other unwanted adware programs might get installed without the user's knowledge.
