SugarSearch hijacks popular browsers such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. The main objective of this program – to make money. For this SugarSearch displays tons of annoying ads in the form of coupons, banners, and more. This ad can appear at any time during your browsing. SugarSearch shows products of partner sites, such as Walmart, eBay, LightInTheBox, and so on. It is worth noting that most of these proposals are contrived, so that the user runs the risk of spending money on nothing.
