Zango Search Assistant - Directly Marketing Products To You

Zango Search Assistant claims to be the most helpful product on the planet. Here's a quote from their site: "Zango Search Assistant is a search-based advertising application designed to locate products and services that are of specific interest to you - it is included with your Zango download. The ads you see enable us to provide you with FREE quality games, valuable desktop applications and access to some of the most interesting sites on the web. There are no fees, no subscriptions and no trial periods - with Zango everything is always completely free and safe." Wow! They really sound helpful, don't they? Unfortunately Zango Search Assistant is adware, and if you consider spying on your every move helpful, then they really live up to their claims.

What is Zango Search Assistant?

In a nutshell, Zango Search Assistant is adware that looks at everything you browse, then sends you advertisements that match your browsing habits in the hopes that you'll make a purchase from one of their affiliate advertisers. Zango sends you popup advertisements, directs you to questionable websites, and communicates with other servers without your knowledge or permission. Zango Search Assistant is created by 180 Solutions Inc, and it is a variant of the nCase family.

How Did I Get Zango Search Assistant?

As unfortunate as it is, this one is probably your fault. Zango Search Assistant comes bundled with related Zango software. While you may not have realized what you were installing at the time, you probably did click through and ask Zango Search Assistant to become part of your machine. Unlike some other programs you might ask to become part of your virtual family, though, Zango Search Assistant isn't as friendly as it should be in many cases.

How Do I Know If I Have Zango Search Assistant?

If you do have Zango Search Assistant on your computer, there are several thing you might notice that will be clues to that end. First, you're likely to notice the Zango Search Assistant toolbar at the top of your browser. Because Zango Search Assistant is a program that you invite to become part of your machine, it can affect any browser type, including those normally immune to other adware applications. The toolbar has a box for you to type search terms in, and it has some other buttons that will direct you to advertisers' sites. It is best, though, that you not visit any of the links Zango Search Assistant creates for you. As a company, Zango can't be responsible for the content of all of their advertisers sites, and many of them could have spyware and adware programs that install automatically when you visit the site. This could leave you with a very large adware problem on  your hands.

Another thing you might notice when you have Zango Search Assistant installed on your computer is how slowly the machine responds to your commands. A program like Zango Search Assistant eats up a lot of system resources, and as a result, the computer may not be able to keep up with the programs you acutally want to run. To see this for yourself, simply look at the processes tab of your Windows Task Manager. When Zango Search Assistant and its affiliated processes are on, it will eat up almost all of your system resources, leaving precious little space for the programs you want and need to run on your computer.

One final thing you might notice with Zango Search Assistant is the popup and popunder advertisements on your computer. Zango Search Assistant watches your every move when you are browsing. It scans for the keywords in each page you view while you are online. From there, it uploads the related keywords to its home server. The home server then sends you advertisements targeted at the keywords you look at most. For example, if you read a news article about mp3s, it may send you an advertisement for the hottest new mp3 download service on the web. Even if you don't manage to hit any of the Zango Search Assistant keywords, though, it still has the ability to send any advertisements from its affiliates to you, so you can certainly expect to see lots of new products each time you browse. Remember that clicking on these links could send you into a maze of adware and spyware, so it's important to stay away from them if you can. You should also remember that just because you try to keep your computer family friendly, Zango Search Assistant wants money from its affiliates, and it's possible that you could see ads for adult oriented content while you're browsing.

Zango Search Assistant Removal

If you want to remove Zango Search Assistant from your machine, there are a couple of ways to go about it. Unfortunately, the Zango Search Assistant uninstaller is not always as helpful as it should be, so that's probably not the best method of removal. One thing you can do is manually delete all of the associated program files and registry keys. A list follows this article. Keep in mind, though, that working within your system registry is fairly dangerous, and if you've never done it before, it's best to have a professional by your side as you do it the first time.

Your other option is to use your antispyware software to remove Zango Search Assistant from your computer. If you don't currently have antispyware software, its certainly time to get some. Consider a program like ParetoLogic. Easy to use and easy to update, it will help you remove Zango Search Assistant and keep you safe from other adware and spyware influences.
