Commonly, the option to install a FindWide's toolbar is pre-checked and even invisible throughout the usual installation process. FindWide takes over search results in any genuine search engine and reroute victimized web users to its own website called search.findwide.com. Search.findwide.com is sponsored by FindWide, which shows pop-up advertisements from Microsoft and is most likely using Bing results.
