WOW search

WOW search is a search engine that is being promoted by a browser hijacker. This program might get on your system without your permission; thus, you will not even notice it unless your homepage and search engine will be replaced by wow.utop.it. If you have already noticed this address in the address bar, it is very probable that you have a browser hijacker and we urgently recommend erasing it from the system. You should definitely erase all the applications that come on your system without your consent because they might be unreliable and thus cause inconvenience. In order to get rid of WOW search as soon as possible, just follow the instructions provided for you below.

If you have noticed the extension with a name “- High Solution – “ or “Plugin”, it is very probable that WOW search infiltrated your computer. If you are using Google Chrome, you might notice the presence of wow.utop.it if you install such an application as Tab Plus. It will not harm your system because it has only been created in order to display clock, date, and weather forecast. You will notice all these features if you open a new tab. Besides, you will find a search box there and if you enter any keyword, you will notice that you are redirected to wow.utop.it. Even though search results might seem decent from the first sight, you will never know whether you are receiving reliable search results. Thus, we recommend using reliable search engines like Google instead.

Unfortunately, wow.utop.it is not the only search engine that you should avoid. It has been found out that there are many other engines based on the same domain. Thus, if you ever meet suchmaschine24.utop.it, pluginext.utop.it or similar engines whose link is somehow related to utop.it, you should definitely not trust them. Have you already noticed any of them on your PC? It might be true that it has arrived together with a browser hijacker. Do you want to avoid them in the future? Just acquire a reliable tool that would protect your system.

Of course, we will help you to remove WOW search; however, you should be very careful in the future in order not to infect your system again. Follow the instructions below and you will be able to free your system from the clutches of this browser hijacker. If you want to erase it automatically because these instructions seem too difficult, you can download a reliable antimalware tool SpyHunter by clicking on the button below. Do not forget to upgrade it.
