Currently Notice: Undefined variable: incprefix in /data/www/xblock/product_show.php on line 123 25,860,543 Spy Software Busted!
Full Name:
Type: Adware
Created By: New Media Properties, LLC
Danger Level: 2
Category Description: Program that delivers advertisements on your PC.

Note that many websites have their own advertising, unrelated to adware.

Adware is any software application in which advertising is displayed while the program is running. The authors of these applications include additional code that delivers the ads, which can be viewed through pop-up windows or through a bar that appears on a computer screen and sometimes through text links or in integrated search results. Adware may or may not track personal information. It may also gather information anonymously or in aggregate only. Users should check the EULA and Privacy policy to ensure if the adware on their machines conforms to their standards.
Comment: SearchSquire is an Internet Explorer sidebar containing paid links that opens when you use search engines. When using a search engine known to the software, the search terms are forwarded to SearchSquire's own search feature, returning advertisers' links in a sidebar.

SearchSquire/v2 seems also to be capable of opening pop-up adverts on targeted sites.
Information URL: http://www.searchsquire.com/
Manual Removal: Go to the Control Panel's Add/Remove Programs option and remove the 'SearchSquire' entry.
