I wrote this article to help you remove Mywebtopic.com. This Mywebtopic.com removal guide works for Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer.
The Mywebtopic.com site means bad news. Its appearance indicates the presence of a browser hijacker in your system. A hijacker has managed to sneak in and now it is using the Mywebtopic.com page to inform you of its presence. Think of the site as a warning as that`s what it is. As soon as you spot it taking over your browsing, take actions. Hijackers may not be the most dangerous cyber infection but they should not be underestimated. No infection should be. If you give them enough time, they can cause you some irreversible damage. These infections are quite secretive and sneaky. For starters, you don’t realize when they enter. They get in your system in complete silence and you may not even realize that until it is too late. But how exactly?
Hijackers need your approval to enter so they ask for it. Not openly, of course. They do it in the sneakiest way possible and for that, they rely on the old but gold means of infiltration. They still ask for permission but in a way in which you won`t realize what you are giving green light to. For instance, they hide behind fake program updates or corrupted links. Or, they hitch a ride with freeware. Sometimes, an infection could land directly into your inbox posing as a legitimate message. The methods are many but the thing that all infections need the most is your carelessness. Yes, your distraction and haste are the key ingredients. If you pay more attention you will be able to spot an intruder on time. By being negligent, you are only doing the crooks a favor.
Another thing the hijacker does behind your back is spying on you. As soon as it settles in, the pest starts monitoring your every online move in the background. It has access to your IPs, usernames, passwords, emails addresses, browser-related data, accounts, etc. It may even get to your personally identifiable and financial information. The worst part, though, is that if the hijacker has access to all of that so do the crooks who published it. Everything it finds, the parasite sends to them to use as they see fit. As you could imagine, no good can come from this. That’s why it is crucial that you act now! When you see the Mywebtopic.com page, accept the fact that your machine is infected and start looking for the intruder.
As we said, the hijacker does a lot of stuff in silence but others, it parades in front of you. For example, it adds a pesky extension to all of your browsers thus taking complete control over them. Due to this extension, your browsing becomes a mess. First of all, the Mywebtopic.com becomes your constant online companion. Whatever you do, you see it. It appears among the search results, you get redirected to it all the time, when you open a new tab it is there. It has even replaced your previous homepage and search engine. And it is not alone. Of course, you get redirected to all kinds of shady pages but we meant the ads. The hijacker bombards you with a never-ending pile of irritating commercials. You see ads 24/7 blinking on your screen and blocking page content. And don’t think that you can simply close them with the “X” button. You can`t. No matter what you do, they are still there.
Can you imagine surfing the web under these conditions? Your browsing suddenly becomes an impossible task. You cannot find anything you search for. You are interrupted by ads and redirect all the time. And, you are at constant risk of more malware. Why? Let`s take the ads, for instance. Most of them conceal more infections which you can get with a single click of yours. And it doesn’t matter if you click on purpose or by accident, you still get infected. The last thing you need right now is more parasites while you are still dealing with the hijacker. Your machine could not take more as well. It is already underperforming. Its speed is slow, it crashes/freezes, your Internet connection becomes unstable and so on and so forth. Imagine what it would be if you have more pests on board. Take immediate action and get rid of this pest. This is your number one priority. To delete it manually, please follow our removal guide below.
