The adware usually affects only the Firefox, Google Chrome, IE and Edge by changing the internet browser’s settings or installing a harmful extensions (addons). Moreover, possible situations, when any other browsers will be affected too. The ‘ad supported’ software will perform a scan of the computer for internet browser shortcuts and modify them without your permission. When it infects the internet browser shortcuts, it will add the argument such as ‘http://site.address’ into Target property. So, each time you start the internet browser, you will see an annoying ad site.
The MyBeeSearchService ad-supported software is not a virus, but the virus behaves similarly. As a rootkit hides in the system, modifies web browser settings and blocks them from changing. Also the ad supported software can install additional web browser extensions, addons and modules that will inject advertising banners within the Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer and Edge’s screen. Moreover, the ad-supported software may install internet browser hijacker that once started, will modify the web browser’s homepage and search engine.

How to get rid of MyBeeSearchService ads automatically
Manual removal is not always as effective as you might think. Often, even the most experienced users can not completely remove MyBeeSearch and MyBeeSearchService adware from the infected personal computer. This is because the adware can hide its components which are difficult for you to find out and delete completely. This may lead to the fact that after some time, the ad-supported software again infect your machine and it will start to show unwanted popup ads.
