Even though it is unlikely that users will be unaware of WordAnchor, it is easy to recognize this infection by the ads it displays. In most cases, the tag "powered by WordAnchor" will be attached to these advertisements. If you terminate the service called “wasvc.exe*.32”, it is most likely that these ads will disappear, but you need to delete WordAnchor to get rid of them for good. The main reason why we recommend removing these ads is that their creators are unknown, which means that they could be malicious. Malicious parties use advertising as a tool to introduce scams and spread malware. Even though we cannot claim that you will encounter only malicious ads, we suggest removing WordAnchor to minimize the risk.
Irritating, misleading advertisements could also be injected by the infections associated with WordAnchor. If you are not sure if other unreliable programs were installed on your PC, we suggest using a malware scanner to find out. Unfortunately, it is likely that other threats will be found if you have downloaded WordAnchor packaged with other programs. We take this opportunity to remind you that software bundles could be used for the distribution of extremely malicious infections, which is why we do not recommend trusting them!
Even though the intentions behind WordAnchor are difficult to understand, the removal of this threat is straightforward. If you uninstall this program from your operating system, it is likely that you will successfully get rid of all components associated with this adware. Despite this, we want you to take extra security measures. First, install a malware scanner to find out if you have deleted WordAnchor successfully. Second, install a security tool that could protect your operating system from malware in the future.
