    I have the start up popup that wants me to install the search protection and I suspect it may be from these guys. I was wondering how to remove the program that displays the popup. I don’t want to install it and then have to go through this process to uninstall it.

    Thank you for your manual.

    Another experience. Don’t know if someone mentioned it.

    – First removed in Control Panel: SearchProtect
    – Cleaned up in Regedit, like was mentioned before.
    – I tried to delete the folder: c:\Program files(x86)\SearchProtect\
    – Did not work.
    – inside the folder was only one file left:
    – c:\Program files(x86)\SearchProtect\SearchProtect\SPVC32Loader.dll
    – tried to delete the file, message appeared: Can not delete the file, it is in use by Microsoft Word.
    – Closed MS word. Delete worked.

    Will this CCleaner delete important things?
    Because after it analysed my computer, my anti-virus system was up for cleaning.

      No it’s not like that. I have never heard of any instances where CCleaner removed anything important or caused any complications.

      Try the free version! Check it out! It’s one of my favorites.

        To remove this just search for SearchProtect in your program files and delete the folder.Before this open task manager and look for programs that run under the name conduit or search protect and end these processes.

        • Sean Doyle says:

          Don’t forget about all the settings that it changes, registry edits it makes, startups, collections, etc… These will not simply be called Conduit or Search Protect.
