by ,   | Type: Adware

Wizard 101 is a gaming program, which is automatically downloaded onto the system when user logs into Wizard101.com website to play some game. While it's not as dangerous as rogue anti-spyware or ransomware, security experts have started to discuss about this program because you can hardly notice when Wizard 101 gets on your machine. Besides, Internet is full of discussions about the complicated removal of Wizard 101 because it doesn't appear on Add/Remove Programs list. If it has infiltrated your computer without any permission asked, you should know that this program can be set to record browsing activity, cause redirections on the browser and show annoying pop-up ads during your Internet sessions. You must ignore these ads because they may redirect you to unwanted websites.


In most cases, Wizard 101 gets inside the system without an appropriate user's permission asked. As soon as this program enters it, it initiates mess on the system by altering some of PC's settings, like changing the start page, default search engine and similar things.
