About this threat

SearchWizard reroutes are occurring because of an advertising-supported application on your device. Hurried free program set ups are frequently the cause of the adware set up. If you aren’t familiar with what an adware is, you might be confused about what is occurring. Do not be concerned about the ad-supported program directly harming your system because it’s not malware but it will generate huge amounts of adverts to flood your screen. However, that doesn’t mean that advertising-supported software can’t do harm at all, it can lead to a much more severe contamination if you were rerouted to damaging web pages. We highly recommend you abolish SearchWizard before it might do more serious consequences.
