Have you been experiencing an onslaught of commercial pop-up ads recently? It might be that you have accidentally installed WiseEnhance onto your computer. It is an adware application that always gets distributed bundled with freeware. To remove WiseEnhance from your computer you simply need to uninstall it via Control Panel. However, due to the fact that WiseEnhance arrives bundled with other apps, you might need to remove more potentially unwanted programs from the system. Do not forget that you can always leave us a comment below if you have any questions on how to keep your computer safe.
Such applications as WiseEnhance are not direct computer security threats, but keeping an adware app in your system is not a good idea. WiseEnhance belongs to SuperWeb LLC family of adware applications, and so it is a direct clone of such adware apps as Cling Clang, Laflurla, Rock Turner Ads and many more. Originally, WiseEnhance has been compatible with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer web browsers. However, web browser developers frequently update their browsers to make them less vulnerable, and after the most recent update, WiseEnhance can no longer be installed on Google Chrome. In case your default browser is Google Chrome, check its version to make sure you are using the latest one.
The official homepage for WiseEnhance at wiseenhance.com claims that with this application you will be able to search for information online a lot faster. Not to mention that WiseEnhance will help you purchase various goods online at an optimal price. However, the fact that we cannot download the application at the official website (since it is distributed bundled with freeware) contributes to the extension’s suspicious image.
In fact, rather than providing you with reliable information, WiseEnhance will spam you with “ads by WiseEnhance” and “WiseEnhance deals” pop-ups, banner ads and other types of shopping suggestions. You may also find yourself redirected to Flickr, YouTube, Twitter or eBay via additional toolbar that WiseEnhance can add to your Google search page. What is more, WiseEnhance may come with an additional bar on one side of the window which says “Related Searches”. The bar would redirect you straight to topictorch.com.
In order to avoid WiseEnhance you need to steer clear of third party websites, shareware and free online gaming pages. WiseEnhance is usually bundled with Gameo installer and other installers from InstallCore group.
These days users are smart enough to know that clicking on pop-up ads is a bad idea, but if you do not remove WiseEnhance from the PC, the pop-ups and other types of ads will continue to appear on your web browser’s window. To make sure that you do not get exposed to any potentially dangerous threats, uninstall WiseEnhance right now and then scan the PC with SpyHunter free scanner to check for other potentially unwanted applications.
