What is Websearch.wonderfulsearches.info?
Websearch.wonderfulsearches.info is a suspicious program that falls in the category of browser hijackers. It is compatible with all popular web browsers and will affect whichever ones you have on your PC. The program will change your search engine, new tab and home page.

Moreover, the application will cause other disturbances as well. It will redirect you to unfamiliar websites, display ads and sponsored links on your visited pages and slow down your Internet speed.

How does Websearch.wonderfulsearches.info work?
First of all you should know how the program entered your computer system so you can avoid making the same mistake in the future. When you download programs from freeware websites you use the so-called “download clients” or “installers” that provide you with not only the application you wanted, but also additional (usually potentially unwanted) programs. It is, however, possible to avoid this software if you pay more attention during the installation process. You should always choose Custom or Advanced installation so you can control which programs are getting installed on your PC.
Websearch.wonderfulsearches.info enters your system and makes immediate changes. Every time you open your browser you will now see this search engine. We do not recommend using it as it will not provide you with real search results. Your results will be altered to include sponsored links. Moreover, the ads and links that you will see in your browser may turn out to be unsafe. You should really think twice before clicking on them as they may lead you to corrupted websites. If you enter a hacked webpage you could be automatically infected with malware. You could also be tricked into downloading a malicious program presented as a useful application. In order to prevent this from happening you should terminate Websearch.wonderfulsearches.info.
