How My Search Manager gets on your PC?

My Search Manager comes on the computer in the form of additional content or installs bundled with other freeware software. Unfortunately developers prefer to hide an additional information about all features of their software in huge terms of use, so users rarely read all paragraphs completely. Most of the users do not expect that computer is at risk. So, we argue you to read attentively the user agreement and not hurry to press “Next” button. Try to choose the “Advanced” type of installation. If the program is already infiltrated on your PC, then you need to get rid of My Search Manager now!
