Dregol.com Removal Tips
Dregol.com is a browser hijacker that gets installed onto your browsers as an extension or add-on. It changes your browser and DNS settings without your permission. The hijacker is a clone of Binkiland.com. It causes constant redirects, inserts adverts into your visited pages, slows down your Internet connection and so on.
Dregol.com is distributed using a deceptive method called bundling. It arrives attached to freeware or shareware and may not be noticed by the computer user. It is very likely that you installed it accidentally. Since the main purpose of the application is to promote its associated sites, we recommend you eliminate Dregol.com from your web browsers.
How does Dregol.com work?
On its official site, you will find a lot of information about the so-called searching tool. It will claim that Dregol.com is “the freshest way to get around the web” and that its home page is “the next generation of how you begin and continue a browsing session”. You may think that it is something extraordinary, but all it does is add links to your favorite sites to the “Most Visited” section and also equips you with a “Recommended” section. You see Dregol home page every time you open your browser and Dregol Search is set as your default search provider.
The main reason why you would want to get rid of Dregol.com is because it introduces you to commercial content. You may see sponsored links and ads no matter where you go online. They may be presented in search results or on any other site that you open. Some of the adverts may not be safe. If you click on a fake ad, you could end up infecting your PC or falling victim to some other virtual scam. The excessive amount of commercials may also slow down your Internet connection. You should not tolerate that.
