- Annoying Pop-up's
- Shows commercial adverts
- Connects to the internet without permission
WordWizard is an application that should help you search for information on the Web. Highlight any text you find online, and you will be shown Wikipedia and Bing search results associated with the selected text, translations into more than 60 languages, and thesaurus entries. We have decided to test if the program is really a useful tool. What we have found is that it is similar to WordProser and Highlightly. All of them are adware applications that attack you with annoying commercial advertisements while you browse the Web. Moreover, we have discovered that WordWizard usually tries to enter your system without your notice. This does not allow us to consider it a reliable application, so we suggest that you remove the program.
Our research has revealed that aside from displaying you ads, WordWizard sometimes connects to the Internet without user’s permission. This is not only unacceptable but could also be potentially dangerous. The program states that it “analyzes and records the ways in which you use your computer and the websites you visit.” Probably, the analyzed and recorded data is later sent to adware servers to which this program connects when it accesses the Web. Your information will never be protected and it could be used by suspicious third parties.
WordWizard states that it sends information only for the purpose of displaying more relevant advertisements to you. But the intentions the third parties may have are known only to them. Please note that WordWizard is not responsible for any content you may find on third-party websites that you are redirected to after clicking on the ads generated by the adware program. So, for example, if you found yourself on a fake shopping website and are scammed into entering your credit card credentials, you would receive no compensation for your losses from anybody.
We have also found that WordWizard is mostly distributed in the software bundles. The program usually comes together with the PriceLess and PicColor adware applications. Sometimes WordWizard is installed when people decide to download VuuPC, which itself is considered a potentially unwanted program. The fact that the program tries to sneak onto your computer unnoticed shows that it is not a trustworthy application. Besides, the software bundles can contain malicious applications as well. You should increase the level of your online security and do not download anything from suspicious and unreliable sources. For now, we recommend that you get rid of WordWizard and then turn your focus to other infections that may be already damaging your system.
If you have made a decision to remove WordWizard, then you can use our short guide. Follow it attentively, and the unwanted adware application will be gone. But eliminating WordWizard will not make your computer 100% safe. It will take a lot of time to detect manually all the possible harmful programs that might have come along with this adware program. The most rational solution would be to use a legitimate antispyware tool that protects you 24/365.
