If you’re surfing the Web but finding the web browser redirecting to the searchingresult.com website for no apparent reason then it’s likely because you have adware installed on your computer.
As if people didn’t hate advertisement enough already, one of the newest tricks some evil-hearted developers have conjured up is creating a package that installs on your computer and shows advertisements every time you load a webpage.
The idea behind the adware is to show banner advertisements without you realizing that they’re not part of the websites usual browsing experience, so you may be using your browser without even realizing there’s an issue. But the difference between surfing the Web on a computer without adware compared to with it is vast: you may be seeing up to double the amount of advertisements that you would normally otherwise see if the adware wasn’t installed on your PC. What’s more, the ads bundled in adware are always of low quality—they can run heavy, cause your computer’s hardware to be put under stress until the fan kicks in to try to cool it down, so forth.
Each time the ads shown from the adware get seen, it creates the developers of the adware revenue. It’s basically how a normal website makes its money, only they get their views legitimately and without tricking people.
Adware often gets referred to as a “potentially unwanted program (PUP)” but it should be referred to as a “definitely unwanted program.” PUPs are what you may have downloaded during the installation of free software and are usually genuine programs that many people may want to have installed. There’s rarely any reason you shouldn’t want a PUP on your computer unless you want to create more space on the hard drive. Adware on the other hand dramatically changes your web browsing experience and should be removed immediately.
This tutorial demonstrates how to remove the Searchingresult.com web browser redirect so you can go back to surfing the Web without adware in your way.

9. You can choose to “Clean and Restart Later” or Clean and Restart Now” depending on what suits your needs. Any unsaved work will be lost if you proceed to shut down now, but you’ll want to shut it down before expecting your computer to be ridded from the adware.
