In many cases, the free software installer includes the optional ad supported software or potentially unwanted programs such as this hijacker infection. So, be very careful when you agree to install anything. The best way – is to choose a Custom, Advanced or Manual setup mode. Here disable (uncheck) all third-party programs in which you are unsure or that causes even a slightest suspicion. The main thing you should remember, you don’t need to install the additional applications which you do not trust! The only thing I want to add. Once the free programs is installed, if you uninstall this software, the startpage, newtab and search engine by default of your favorite web browser will not be restored. This must be done by yourself. Just follow the instructions above.
Now your machine should be free of the Search.searchlttradionow.com . Uninstall AdwCleaner. We suggest that you keep AdGuard (to help you stop unwanted advertisements and unwanted harmful pages) and Malwarebytes (to periodically scan your computer for new browser hijackers, malware and adware).
