Utop.it is a web domain that is used by browser hijackers to redirect unsuspecting users. This website functions as a search engine and it is set as a default home page on your main browser when you get infected with a browser hijacker. It is very similar WOW Search in a sense that both browser hijackers make use of utop.it domain. It is very possible that you install this browser hijacker onto your computer yourself. Removing utop.it might be difficult, because the application cannot be removed via Control Panel, and you may need to change your browser settings manually.
The problem is that when it comes to such browser hijackers as utop.it, sometimes it is hard to tell whether it is a useful search engine or a computer infection. Utop.it even has its own Twitter account, where the domain is presented as an Ultimate Search Engine. Granted, utop.it does perform search engine functions and it provides you with relevant search results.
If this browser hijacker does not enter your system bundled with freeware, it is possible to add it to your browser and/or make it your default search provider when you perform a search on utop.it at least once – a bar that offers you to change your browser settings appears right at the top of the search result window. It seems that in most cases, this method does not work well with main browsers, because when one tries to add the plug-in to the browser, one gets a pop-up message saying that the plug-in download was not successful. However, the search engine and default home page can be easily changed. Not to mention that EZ YouTube Video Downloader gets added to your browser as well.
This only confirms that utop.it is related to this potentially unwanted application just like WOW Search. This application is known to be responsible for multiple browser settings modifications. At the same time, it means that users have to be extremely careful when they browse the Internet as not to download potentially unwanted and even dangerous programs.
If your browser settings have been modified without your permission, you need to run a full system scan with SpyHunter free scanner to determine all the potentially undesirable programs currently installed on your PC. After you remove the programs from your PC via Control Panel, restore your browser settings manually, and then invest in a reliable computer security application that will terminate all the malicious programs (if any) automatically, and will protect your computer from other unsolicited modifications.
