XeeSearch.com Removal Guide

Do you know what XeeSearch.com is?

The application presented at fbdrawer.com, known as FB Drawer, hides Xee Smileys plugin which comes bundled with XeeSearch.com. If you are not careful with the installation of the application, you might discover undesirable search provider changes on Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers. Note that the plugin itself can be downloaded onto Google Chrome as well. As our malware researchers have found out, if you choose to delete XeeSearch.com related plugin, you have to look for Facebook Smileys on Chrome and Firefox, and Xee Smileys Bar on Internet Explorer. Even though the names of these plugins change, there is no doubt that they are equally as unreliable.

The Xee Smileys bar installed on IE and Firefox browsers presents easy-access links to Xee Covers, Xee Fun Apps and Facebook Videos Downloader. The search box on this bar represents XeeSearch.com as well, and you may already be familiar with this suspicious search engine. As research has revealed, the home page and search provider changes are optional and can be declined during the installation of Xee Smileys. This option is hidden behind the Custom installation, and so there is no question why most computer users miss it and then rush to delete the plugin thinking that it has hijacked their browsers.

In non-techie terms:

XeeSearch.com is a suspicious search tool which travels bundled with the Xee Smileys, or FB Drawer. Even though the search tool presents authentic search results, it may be installed onto your browsers without your notice, which is why some categorize it as a browser hijacker. We do not recommend trusting the extension or the search tools because they do not appear to be reliable. Use the manual removal instructions above and install authentic security software to ensure that unauthorized plugins and applications are deleted and cannot enter your PC again.
