Oople is a potentially unwanted application, which causes browser's redirections to malicious websites. In most of the cases, it enters the PC in a form of Toolbar and shows up on all Internet browsers, including IE, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and others. Besides, this program may also change the start page, default search engine and other settings to Oople Search, search.conduit.com and other sites without any permission asked. Search.conduit has already been discussed on all security forums that can be found on the Internet for its altered search results and continuous redirections to unknown sites. If you have also noticed these changes on your computer, you should remove Oople without any delay. Don't forget to fix each of your browsers as well.
