How to remove Search Deals by Injekt

Recently, I noticed that when I am searching anything on Google, Bing, and Yahoo, a thing called Search Deals by Injekt displays on top of the results. At first, it was just a link that does not bother me that much so I just let it there. However, observe that it must be connecting to some web site and have upgraded itself. My antivirus program detects malicious traffics that I just ignored.

Now, Search Deals by Injekt is a huge advertisement on the browser. It is very annoying that it sometimes covers half of the screen. I do not need Search Deals by Injekt especially that I can see all ads displayed are irrelevant to the search terms. It is simply a very bothering program that every user will wanted to get rid of.

Please advice on the proper way of removing this adware on my computer. My scan with antivirus program finds no result. Probably Search Deals by Injekt is not a virus, but the way it manipulates my PC is more than a virus infection, for me at least.

  • I had this problem on Firefox and tried a number of things, including running malwarebytes, etc. After researching I found out that the “Tube Dimmer” add on can do this. Go to Firefox tools (do an F10 to get the menu with tools to show at the top of page), select “Add Ons”. I deleted “Tube Dimmer” then restarted my computer. No more Search Results by Injekt!! Victory!

  • Thanks Cori. That’s exactly what was causing the ad by Injekt.

  • I had the same problem on FF and the add-On that caused was Webstroide (which i don’t recall ever installing), removed it and no more Injekt :-)

  • i did remove it on Google chrome like you mentioned above but each time i close and open chrome it comes back ??????

  • Thanks Cori. Excellent catch! Tubedimmer was the culprit.
