Removal Guide is a browser hijacker that belongs to Viview application developed by Flyingbird Technology Limited. The potentially unwanted program usually gets installed with a browser helper object called Wsys Control that stops you from restoring your browser settings manually.

The hijacker alters your browser settings and shortcuts right after it enters your system. It also causes other unwanted modifications that disrupt your online surfing. Its main purpose is to generate web traffic and promote its sponsors. There is nothing beneficial about the hijacker for computer users. We suggest that you delete as soon as you can.

How does work?

Like most ad-supported programs, Viview gets distributed in free software bundles. It gets attached to freeware and is presented in the installation wizard as an optional offer. You can decline this offer, however, in most cases, computer users do not even notice it and thus the application gets installed automatically. It is important to be especially attentive when it comes to installing freeware, because it is often accompanied by potentially unwanted programs. Make sure you decline all additional offers of unknown apps next time you install free software.
