Searchformore.com Description:

Searchformore.com is a malicious website with poor reputation which is affiliated with browser hijackers and the ZeroAccess Rootkit. It can infect a computer by exploiting security vulnerabilities. Although this website seems to be harmless, it provides no reliable search engine and only can show spam results to computer users. The website is associated with various malware threats.

All in all, this malicious virus should be eliminated as soon as possible.
