Remove Eximioussearchsystem.com (Uninstall Guide)

Eximioussearchsystem.com is a ZeroAccess/Sirefef rootkit-related browser hijacker that redirects selected search results from major search engines to other websites, usually various advertisements and sites of dubious content, that have nothing to do with your search inquiry. This rootkit blocks legitimate anti-malware software and may grow your Internet connection increasingly sluggish since the infection started. Re-installing web browser won't help as well as attempt to restore your computer to previous date when the system was not infected. This is a common enough problem, already well documented but even computer-savvy users can mess around with infected computer for a couple of hours ore even more. Eximioussearchsystem.com redirects due to the ZeroAccess are very annoying and frustrating, however, the rootkit itself is a lot bigger problem as it injects malicious code into system files in order to bypass firewalls and anti-virus products. You may not notice the rootkit right away but if you are reading this article then I'm pretty sure you've noticed that while the redirect is loading it says Waiting for eximioussearchsystem.com at the bottom left corner of your computer screen.

The rootkit starts a process with a very unique name with the following structure: numbers:numbers.exe, for example 324252561:2342956285.exe. Just open up Task Manager and you'll see it.

You can't end it. You can't delete the malicious file either. But if you think that there's no other option but to reformat my hard drive, than you are wrong, because Webroot and Kasperky both have free utilities designed to remove ZeroAccess/Sirefef rootkit from infected machines.

Good luck and be safe online!
