How To Remove Search-NewTab

I’m currently looking at what is advertised on some of the torrent sites. Today I found another adware called Search-NewTab that installed into Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox:

The software seems to use some semi-random naming. I’ve seen in appear as “Seeaerch-oNeewTAb”, “Seearch-NewTTab”, “Sieaarch-NewTab” and “Search-NewTaBi”. What name did Search-Newtab use on your machine?

Currently, Search-NewTab is detected by many of the anti-virus program under names such as MultiPlug and MultiPlag. Most of the antivirus programs classify it as adware, but some report Search-NewTTab as a trojan, as you can see in the screenshot from VirusTotal below:

So how about the removal? You can easily remove Search-NewTab by checking its files in FreeFixer:search-newtab bho in Internet ExplorerSearch-newtab as it appears in Freefixer

There’s also a Search-NewTab entry in the Add/Remove programs dialog in the Windows Control Panel, but I have not tested it. So no guarantees there.Seearch-newttab Uninstall from the Programs and Features dialog

Hope this helped you with the Search-Newtab removal.
