WSearch is a potentially unwanted application, which belongs to the category of ‘browser hijackers’. Such programs are capable of modifying the part of system’s settings and then interrupting PC users with their misleading pop-up ads, redirects, slow downs and similar unwanted activities. Beware that these activities may interrupt you every time when you start your browsing sessions on Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and other web browsers. No matter how harmless they may look, you should keep in your mind that they may lead you to unsafe and very suspicious websites. Such sites may lead you to the infiltration of other potentially unwanted applications, such as adwares and browser hijackers. In addition, not everyone knows that browser hijackers may start tracking PC users and may collect information, which is related to their browsing habits. In most of the cases, they collect people's search terms, mostly visited websites, data that they enter when visiting them, etc. Please, do NOT ignore such facts! No matter that such information is considered to be personally non-identifiable, its loss may lead you to an increased amount of spam and similar issues.
To sum up, you should avoid all programs that belong to ‘adware’, 'browser hijacker' and similar categories. They may try to infiltrate computers in a bundle with freeware and shareware, so you may discover them on your computer even if you don't think about their installation. After infiltrating their target PC system, these programs may start causing continuous pop-up advertisements that may be filled with commercial links and similar content.
