The Local Search removal.

TheLocalSearch or The Local Search is a parasitic adware program, which displays unwanted advertisements in your web browser or within its host application.
It can be secretly installed by some ad-supported software or malicious web sites. Once executed, TheLocalSearch modifies system settings, so it could run on every Windows start up and hide from the user. This adware may update itself via the Internet. Its activity may affect your computer and violate your privacy.

It attempts to substitute popular search engines hindering access to them and providing its own search tool.  Many users have found that annoying, but, since the program is not listed in the Add/Remove Programs menu, they cannot merely uninstall it and ask for effective way to eventually remove.

Kill malicious Processes from Task Manager: 
  • uninstal.exe
 Location of the infection:
  1. C:\program files\wassmartbar\uninstal.exe
  • HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\clsid\{4b8e6575-1013-45e9-bf77-9852ecef07a9}
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\classes\appid\atltoolbar.dll\appid
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\classes\bho.bhoobject\curver
Although it is possible to manually remove The Local Search, such activity can permanently damage your system if any mistakes are made in the process, as advanced spyware parasites are able to automatically repair themselves if not completely removed. Thus, manual spyware removal is recommended for experienced users only, such as IT specialists or highly qualified system administrators. For other users, we recommend  malware and spyware removal applications.

After removing all these files, restart your computer and the issue will be fixed. And don’t forget to do update your Security Software, check the Firewall Settings and the Operating System and finally do a full system scan with the Security Software.
