It spreads by installing with some popular and famous freeware. Ilivid is one of the  program that promotes installationg of searchnu.com, and also includes some mp3, mp4  converter programs. When you install a program, in most cases, you may not care about  what bundles with the program. During the setup progress of ilivid, we could know that  the searchnu.com will be set as homepage, and searchqu toolbar will also be installed.  The software such as ilivid is widespread, and many users download and install it  everyday. Before installing it, many users are not fully reading the license agreements,  and then they might be in danger of installing potentially dangerous software on their  PCs. Below is an example of how does this happen.

To avoid homepage changing or unwanted toolbar installation is not difficult, you could  just select the "Custom Installation" mode. If your homepage was changed, and unwanted  searchqu toolbar was installed on your web browser, you can't restore to previous status  by uninstalling ilivid. (We just assume that you got them with the ilivid program, but  it may be any other software.) If you are a Firefox user, you may find that it's  difficult to remove because it changes keyword.URL preference that can't be changed  directly from Firefor settings menu. So many users may called it as a browser hijacker  or even a virus. Nevertheless it's not a virus or hijacker, but it's potentially a  dangerous program.
