What is Omiga Plus?

Omiga Plus is a questionable search engine, which was created by Taiwan Shui Mu Chih Ching Technology. No matter that it looks harmless, you should know that security experts have already labeled it as a browser hijacker and a potentially unwanted program. Officially, it should help people to organize their desktops and should also help them to hide unused icons. However, there are many PC users who have reported about unexpected discovery of this program on their computers. If you want to avoid this or other potentially unwanted program, you have to be very careful when downloading freeware or shareware to your computer because there are hundreds of applications that have been involved to the distribution of Omiga Plus virus. Please, rely only on Custom or Advanced installation method if you want to prevent infiltration of this and other browser hijacker. If this program manages to infiltrate its target PC system, it may make several modifications on it. For example: it can easily change the start page or default search engine to isearch.omiga-plus.com, start displaying various pop-up ads, slow the work of the system and may also initiate other unwanted activities, such as recording of people's browsing habits. If you know that you have never downloaded this application to your computer, we recommend you to remove Omiga Plus from the system. Otherwise, you may notice many inconveniences that may start interrupting each of your search sessions. For eliminating this hijacker from the system we recommend using when using SpyHunter.

How can Omiga Plus virus hijack my computer?

Just like any other suspicious browser add on, extension, toolbar or plugin, Omiga Plus can be downloaded from its official website or other sites that have been involved to its distribution. However, that's not the only method, which is used for its distribution. Beware that it may also show up on your machine after downloading such program as PDF creator, download manager, video recording software, video streaming software or other freeware. This distribution method is quite unfair because users are not clearly warned about additional downloads that will also try to come inside their computer systems. That's why you have to be very careful when downloading freeware and shareware to your computer. In order to avoid Omiga Plus infiltration, you should opt only for Custom or Advanced installation when downloading freeware from the Internet. In addition, uncheck every unknown check box that shows up during installation of your free program and continue your installation process. If Omiga Plus has already appeared on your computer, it might be that it has affected each of your web browsers, including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, etc. So, if want to get rid of it, you will have to fix each of these browsers. The easiest way to do that is with a help of a guide that is given below.
