How to remove TotalToolboxSearch (Mac)

TotalToolboxSearch is a potentially unwanted program (PUP) that is designed to infect Mac computers and hijack the browser settings. Once installed, TotalToolboxSearch modifies the browser settings to set its own search engine as the default, redirecting users to its own search results page. This can lead to unwanted advertisements and sponsored links being displayed in search results, as well as collecting browsing data and personal information for marketing purposes.

TotalToolboxSearch typically infects Mac computers through software bundling, where it is included as an additional component in the installation package of other software. Users may inadvertently install TotalToolboxSearch when downloading and installing software from untrustworthy sources or by clicking on malicious ads or links. Once installed, TotalToolboxSearch can be difficult to remove as it may reinstall itself or leave behind residual files that continue to cause issues on the Mac system.
