Topwebclub.com is another browser hijacker that might enter your computer these days. If this really happens, you will quickly notice that the settings of your browsers have been changed. To be more specific, like the majority of other browser hijackers, Topwebclub.com will change your homepage and search engine. Some users also report that they see the presence of a new search engine when they open the New Tab page. If you are sure that you have not made any of the changes you see applied on your browsers, there is no doubt that you have encountered a browser hijacker infection. In the opinion of specialists, Topwebclub.com should be removed from browsers as soon as possible even though it looks like a reliable search tool, and it does not seem that it could put the computer in danger. As browser hijackers affect only browsers and do not create entries in Control Panel, many users who do not know anything about these threats find it hard to erase them from the system. Fortunately, we are here today, and we will help you to make the untrustworthy search engine disappear from browsers once and for all.
Topwebclub.com does not seem to be a bad search provider at first glance; however, it is evident that users cannot trust it fully. It is because this search tool blends advertisements with the legitimate search results to promote third-party sites and services. Specialists also say that the developers of Topwebclub.com, most probably, earn money for driving traffic to third-party sites, which explains why this search engine has been created in the first place. Even though the majority of promoted websites will not cause any harm to you, there is still a very small possibility that you will be taken to a website containing malicious software or promoting links that lead to really bad pages. Yes, you have understood correctly – you risk infecting your computer with malicious software by using Topwebclub.com as your main search tool. Researchers say that the majority of questionable search tools also collect information about users, and Topwebclub.com is no exception. In some cases, such untrustworthy search engines even gather personal information, e.g. name, surname, address, etc., so there is a risk that your privacy will be ruined as Topwebclub.com might sell the collected information to guys from third parties.
All browser hijackers are distributed in a similar manner, and you should know how they are usually spread in order to be able to prevent them from sneaking onto your computer. First of all, hijackers often sneak onto computers hiding among freeware and shareware. Users usually get such bundles when they try to download a free application from an untrustworthy third-party website. Of course, we do not say that this browser hijacker cannot find other ways to enter systems. As there are thousands of different browser hijackers these days on the web, and they, unfortunately, are very prevalent, we believe that users have to be more careful with free software they get from the web. We suggest downloading freeware from reliable websites only and always reading all the provided information in installation windows because it is not that hard to notice that an additional program is going to be installed on the system and, as a result, prevent this from happening. Users living in the United Kingdom and Germany have to be careful the most because Topwebclub.com and other similar hijackers, e.g. Stacktrending.com are targeted at users living there mainly. If you do not think that you can protect your computer from harm, you should install security software and simply activate it.
Fortunately, Topwebclub.com does not make many changes, so it will be enough to reset browsers it affects in order to make it disappear.
