How to Remove The Gilda (my.thegilda.com) Program Easily?

Possible Signs of The Gilda Program

• Browser hijacking
• Unwanted homepage
• Search result redirecting
• Ads and sponsored links popping up

Summary of The Gilda Program
The Gilda (my.thegilda.com) is a program that can get access to a system via the propagation of a third party and then affect the installed browser. If you didn’t download the Gilda program, but somehow your browser default and homepage settings were modified to my.thegilda.com related ones, the Gilda application, in this case, shows some malicious properties of a browser hijacker. The Gilda application will alter your original homepage and compulsively set it as my.thegilda.com website, so there is no doubt that every time you open your browser, maybe IE explorer, Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, you find that your homepage has replaced to the Gilde page with advertising promoted under the search box.

As mentioned before, if you didn’t install the Gilda application by yourself, it is likely to be promoted by a third party and may come along other malware such as spyware, adware and etc. In that case, you will stumble over more potentially unwanted troubles, e.g. browser hijacking, search redirecting and ads popping up etc, if you keep any program like The Gilda coming without permission inside your system.
