The constant appearance of the Search.searchwtii.com site is bad news. If you see it all the time, we are sorry to inform you that your machine is no longer infection-free.

The Search.searchwtii.com Virus

Search.searchwtii.com is not reliable. Nor are the results it shows you. The hackers behind the hijacker use it to boost web traffic to particular pages and gain pay-per-click revenue. Every time you click on something, the crooks get paid. You become their sponsor no matter if you want it or not. But there is more. By clicking you also risk worsening your situation by downloading more infection in your system.

Nothing the hijacker displays is reliable. A single click on a corrupted link or ad and you invite more pests on your already infected and underperforming machines. Keep in mind that your PC is already suffering due to this single hijacker`s shenanigans. Its speed slows down to a crawl. It crashes and freezes. Your apps fail to load. Your Internet connection is weak. It is a nightmare. And like this is not enough, the hijacker is also spying on you, collecting sensitive data and sending it to the cybercriminals who published it. Do not let this go on unless you want to fall victim to a financial scan or even an identity theft. Use our removal guide below and get rid of the hijacker on the spot. All you have to do is follow the steps in the exact order given and soon enough your machine will be infection-free again.

How did the hijacker enter? One of the most plausible scenarios is that the hijacker arrived bundled to another program, which you downloaded and installed on your PC. The bundling technique is quite popular among hackers because it is very effective. Yet, it is only effective because users don’t pay attention during installation processes. Next time you install software, opt for the Advanced settings in the Setup Wizard instead of the Basic ones. This way, you will be able to check the entire bundle program by program as well as deselect all extras before finishing the installation. If you skip this step, all additionally attached apps get installed on your PC automatically and you are forced to deal with them later. Save yourself the troubles and prevent them from entering in the first place. This is the easier option.
