BigSeekPro Description

BigSeekProBigSeekPro is a malicious search engine website as well as a browser hijacker that redirects you to the site. According to the research of malware analysts, most BigSeekPro infections are bundled with otherwise legitimate applications, particularly free versions of purchasable software. BigSeekPro takes up system resources and refuses to be turned off, will try to avoid being removed and will hijack your search results to redirect you to risky and affiliate revenue-based websites. Therefore, you should remove BigSeekPro as soon as you think you have BigSeekPro on your PC, by using appropriate anti-malware software that’s designed to combat such PC threats. Other methods of removing BigSeekPro, such as System Restore or uninstallation via the Control Panel, have been documented to fail.

Keeping BigSeekPro’s Unprofessional Demeanor Away from Your PC

BigSeekPro was first widely-reported as a PC threat in 2009 and 2010, although BigSeekPro infections may still be in circulation and BigSeekPro remains capable of attacking modern PCs. Like many other web search engine-related browser hijackers, such as the 100k Search virus, Fake WebCrawler,, Coupon Alert Toolbar, Findxplorer and Resulturl, BigSeekPro also tries to pass itself off in the package of a supposedly legitimate and helpful toolbar. However, BigSeekPro’s upfront features are of questionable worth, and malware researchers have also found that BigSeekPro utilizes even seedier functions that BigSeekPro doesn’t mention.

Most but not all BigSeekPro infections occur after an installation of HyperCam software, a program that’s used to created AVI movie files.

Free versions of HyperCam have been confirmed to be distributed along with BigSeekPro toolbars, which will prove to be exceptionally difficult to delete, unlike a normal browser add-on. Purchasable versions of HyperCam claim to avoid BigSeekPro bundles, although using an entirely different program for AVI file creation may be the safest course of action.

If you find that your PC is infected by BigSeekPro, you should try to avoid deleting BigSeekPro by manual methods that would be used on any normal program, since BigSeekPro will resist these deletion efforts and may cause harm to your operating system in the process. Instead, use an anti-malware program that has the capacity to deal with browser hijackers and similar PC threats.

Why BigSeekPro is Only a Big Nuisance to Your Browser

BigSeekPro may pretend to be a useful search toolbar, but BigSeekPro’s characteristics that malware researchers have analyzed are no better than those of a typical browser hijacker, as noted here:
  • Unlike a benign toolbar, BigSeekPro will launch without your permission and will avoid any attempts at being turned off, disabled or removed.
  • BigSeekPro will change your search results to search results and disallow the use of any other search engine.
  • BigSeekPro will hijack your browser and redirect it to, particularly whenever you try to type an URL address, or navigate to a popular website.
  • Lastly, BigSeekPro may also harm your ability to use other web browsers and can even prevent them from accessing websites due to its tampering with your network security settings.
