Remove WebSearchPDF

WebSearchPDF is a browser extension for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. Its developers advertise it as a useful application, which help users navigate the Web more efficiently, and discover PDF templates or other useful documents. However, the usefulness of WebSearchPDF is questionable – it is not as helpful as it claims to be. In fact, users who install WebSearchPDF are likely to encounter annoying issues, because of this Potentially Unwanted Program's ability to modify their Web browser settings. The intrusive application replaces the new tab page and search engine that your Web browser uses.

The goal of WebSearchPDF is to bring more traffic to 3rd-party sites, therefore boosting their ad revenue. However, it does this at the expense of your Web browsing experience – it forces you to use the pages Feed.websearchpdf.com and Portal.websearchpdf.com. To fix these redirects, you need to remove the source of the problem – WebSearchPDF. While it is possible to remove the app manually, this might not always be a permanent solution. Some of the PUP's files might be left behind, continuing to control your browser settings. Remove PUPs like WebSearchPDF with the help of an up-to-date security scanner for Windows.
