Do you have the Memberacy Search Extension appended to your browsers? Did it appear out of the blue? If yes, we have bad news for you. Your machine harbors an infection. You are dealing with a PUP, aka a potentially unwanted program. That’s what Memberacy Search Extension is categorized as. However, there is nothing potentially dangerous here. Your situation is bad indeed. The Memberacy Search Extension is malicious and it must be removed. If you let it stay on board, it will cause you tons of damage. The sooner you get rid of it, the better. And removing it is your job.

Once you spot Memberacy in your browsers. Start looking for its hiding place. When you find it, delete it on the spot. Don’t waste your time in debates what to do. It is pretty clear. Memberacy Search Extension is a malicious program which has no place in your system. Remove it before it causes you some irreversible damage. Because, trust us, it will. There is no such thing as an infection which enters your PC and does nothing. No. They all find a way to corrupt your machine. This PUP included. Don’t give it enough time to succeed. Once you locate its exact hiding spot, delete it without thinking twice about it.

Once the Memberacy Search Extension gets attached to your browsers, everything changes. Your online activities get effectively demolished. You are constantly bombarded with ads in all shapes and forms imaginable. They are everywhere, blinking and blocking content. You cannot surf the web at peace anymore. You cannot make an online move without being interrupted. Imagine what this is like. You get flooded with adverts on daily basis and no matter what you do, they don’t go away. They don’t even close with the “X” button. What is more, if you click, you end up redirected to suspicious-looking pages which are probably full of infections. From there, a single click is enough for you to invite more pests on your already compromised computer.

That’s right, your PC is already suffering and underperforming due to Memberacy Search Extension. Its speed is slow as a snail, it freezes and crashes often, it lags all the time, your browsers struggle to display content correctly. It is a nightmare and you will hate the experience. Not to mention that surfing the web normally and getting work done online are now impossible tasks.

The PUP makes you avoid your own computer. It underperforms even when you use it offline. The question is why do you put up with that? If you delete the Memberacy Search Extension, everything will get back to normal. Use our detailed and step-by-step instructions to get rid of the intruder manually. Or, download an anti-malware program to do the job for you. Whichever one you choose, do it fast. You have options but you don’t have a lot of time.

How did this PUP manage to infect you? We doubt that you downloaded the Memberacy Search Extension voluntarily. And yet, here it is. The scheme is the following: you end up redirected to a shady page which contains a malicious code that prevents you from leaving. The site states that in order to leave you have to install some software and you are urged to press the provided buttons. However, even if you press the “decline/close” button, the PUP still gets downloaded. You must not interact with such pages at all. The only way to leave safely is to use your Task Manager to close your browser and then start a brand new session. Otherwise, you end up stuck with an infection. Don’t let yourself be fooled and keep your machine safe.
