Remove (Uninstall Guide) is a ZeroAccess rootkit-related browser hijacker that redirects users to malicious and very often completely irrelevant web pages. Web search engines, let's say Google or Yahoo!, generate a normal list of search results. If you click on any of the results however, the status bar at the bottom of the web browser says Waiting for

What this rootkit actually does is route you to the fake search engine and then redirect to malicious web page or websites filled with advertisements. If the keyword is not profitable ZeroAccess related malware will simply load the requested website. One way or another, you will notice that websites are taking longer to load than usual. Not to mention that random pop-up ads may appear on your computer screen advertising products and services, for example WeLoveFilms toolbar.

What is more, Windows Firewall alerts may show up occasionally asking you to unblock certain applications. That's because ZeroAccess rootkit injects malicious code into system files to bypass Windows firewall.
