What is Coolsearch.info?

Coolsearch.info is a browser hijacker that promotes a dubious search engine. If you suddenly find that your browser’s settings have been changed without your permission, you have a browser hijacker on your hands. It must have entered without you noticing when you were installing free software. It is not a malicious infection, a browser hijacker is merely going to change your browser settings so that it can redirect you to sponsored websites. Redirecting you to those websites is the main reason why a browser hijacker even exists. It generates traffic and thus makes pay-per-click revenue for those sites. It should be noted, however, that while Coolsearch.info is not malicious, it could redirect you to malicious websites and you might obtain malware if you are not careful. We suggest you take the time to delete Coolsearch.info from your computer as soon as possible.
