Did you agree to set Search.wondrousmoviessearch.com as your default search provider? You must have agreed to this when downloading the WondrousMovies extension. If you are sure that you did not give this search provider a permission to replace your regular provider on Chrome and Firefox browsers, you might classify it as a browser hijacker. You probably need no explanation as to why programs capable of entering your operating system without permission require removal. Nevertheless, we do not classify the suspicious search engine as a browser hijacker, and we are sure that most users will have an explanation for its existence. So, did you find this suspicious search tool after downloading the extension it usually comes bundled with? If not, maybe you have executed a software bundle that contained the installer of this search tool? Whatever the case, we can help you delete Search.wondrousmoviessearch.com.

Imalimedia – otherwise known as IMALI - N.I. MEDIA LTD – is the developer of the suspicious search tool. It is also the developer of Search.emaildefendsearch.com, Search.searchinsocial.com, and similar search providers. Although these search tools might look different because they promote different services, in reality, they all function in the same ways. For one, neither of these search tools provides original search services. Our research team has found that Search.wondrousmoviessearch.com opens Yahoo Search in a new tab and redirects you to it to show search results, which, keep in mind, can be modified on the behalf of the unreliable search tool. Surely, this is not what you expect even if you have installed this search provider willingly. Even if you ignore the search function of this search tool, it is not trustworthy. It is likely that it can install tracking cookies to spy on users without their knowledge. Although your personal data might be safe, trusting a suspicious program that is capable of spying on you is very risky.

According to our research, Search.wondrousmoviessearch.com is relatively new. According to the date on chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/wondrousmovies-extension/gjnbpgbdknhkgldpanndkpllkdplncmo, it is active since August, 2015. Have you downloaded this search tool from the Chrome web store? If you have, you must have agreed to the changes made to your search provider. Once installed, the extension is added to the chrome://extensions/ list, and, if you go to the Developer mode, you will find its ID, gjnbpgbdknhkgldpanndkpllkdplncmo. You can use this ID to check which folder represents the extension under C:\Users\{user}\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions. Have you deleted all files within this folder? Although we recommend removing this extension, we do not advise removing files one by one because this method usually allows some components to prevail. If you do not want to deal with leftovers, use the guide below.

Before we start talking about the removal of this suspicious search tool, we want to give you some guidelines to help you prevent unreliable software from entering your operating system in the future. Of course, our primary recommendation is to employ reliable anti-malware software that could guard you against all kinds of threats. It is also important that you do not execute unfamiliar, suspicious installers or even visit websites that could promote them. Corrupted websites could automatically execute malware installers, which means that one click might be enough to ruin your day. Beware of corrupted links attached to spam emails or posted on social media as well. All in all, even if you act cautiously, it is easy to slip up and let in malware, which is why we strongly advise using antimalware software.

Deleting malware is never easy. Luckily, Search.wondrousmoviessearch.com is not some aggressive threat that hooks deep into your system. According to our research team, your operating system will be clean as soon as you delete the unwanted extension and replace the undesirable search tools; of course, unless other threats are running alongside. Click the Download link to acquire a free malware scanner that will tell if you if you also need to remove other threats.
