FindWide.com does not look suspicious at all and it is likely that you will be able to browse the search engine without any issues. Regardless, we certainly do not recommend installing the infamous Findwide Search toolbar, available from support.findwide.com/about. If you install this plugin without paying any attention to the installer, you may end up with undesirable home page and search provider modifications. If you must install the toolbar but do not want to change browser settings – make sure the boxes placed next to the offered modifications are un-checked. Only then should you click the Agree & Continue button.
It has been discovered that start.search.us.com, a search engine which comes bundled with FindWide.com toolbar, is almost identical to findwide.com itself. It provides the same links to Facebook, Twitter and Wikipedia. Moreover, it follows the same privacy policies. Many computer users find this search engine quite limiting, and the toolbar itself is meant to promote Search Us search engine. Therefore, we do not oppose its removal. Since the plugin is not a malicious computer program, you should be able to delete it using manual removal instructions.
As research shows, FindWide.com removal can be performed manually; however, if you miss one single step – your browser will remain controlled by the undesirable search engine. Therefore, we urge you to be extra cautious with the removal steps provided below. We also recommend installing reliable malware detection and removal software, like SpyHunter, to keep your operating Windows system guarded against those undesirable computer programs which may be dangerous to your own virtual security.
