Adware’s vantage is in its unimportance, and its crucial tasks are to stay unnoticed as long as possible and to show as many ads as it could. It’s not just sneaking into the machine and struggling to shove the untrusted fake banners and pop-ups down your throttle, but it’s also damping your workstation’s security.

You should thank Wish-you.co for it, as it had altered the settings of your browser to make it vulnerable to all kinds of attacks which were avoided before while the default settings were active.

 

We will now explain, which activities does Wish-you.co accomplish in the system. First of all, right after the infection, Wish-you.co turns off the browser's protection. Search system and homepage are the most important ones, so Wish-you.co replaces them with a simulated search system, which shows false search results and fake links. Wish-you.co website is the heart of the scheme, and it performs the important things, and the program part just arranges the ground for it. Apart from that, Wish-you.co is able to modify other protective functions. For instance, it makes you able to download anything without user's affirmation and disables the note of warning.

How Wish-you.co gets into the system

To infect your computer, Wish-you.co uses the safest way: sponsored infection. It's not just effective but also shields web-criminals of each possible incrimination of fraud as user accepts all actions of Wish-you.co through its installation. We will define the scheme:

 

  • Scammers develop the so-called “bundle” composed of 3-4 malicious tools and a single helpful program. Naturally, the package bears a name of a useful program so that users would want to install it.
  • The package goes on file-sharing sites available for everyone.
  • In case a victim finds it and launches it, the installer proposes installing everything that's inside, which means that the hazardous utilities will be installed too. In some cases, the operator doesn’t get any choice, as all options besides “allow” are hidden and cannot be clicked.

 

As the bundle is installing, you have to choose an option, which allows you to decline the installation of all other utilities, save the wanted one. If you fail to do that – you’ll get a few unwanted utilities installed, and they will start their work after the following restart. The best thing to say is that you'd better stay alert and to inspect each menu, appearing through the installation of any gratis tools.

The thing we need to explain is that the slightest error while the deletion procedure is in progress, especially while you are working with the system registry, will have crucial fruits. We can't administer you while the uninstalling is in progress, so you'd better backup the system before you start. There is another strategy, which is less hard, reliable, tested and fast.
