Wopiber.win redirect removal instructions
What is wopiber.win?
wopiber.win is one of many rogue websites (virtually identical to kaymopk.com, karonty.com, ifortunne.com, and a number of others) designed to redirect visitors to other untrustworthy websites. Most visitors to this website arrive at it inadvertently (a potentially unwanted program [PUP] redirected them to it). PUPs cause these redirects, but also collect information, deliver intrusive ads, and misuse computer resources.
When installed, potentially unwanted programs trigger browsers to open new tabs/windows and redirect users to the wopiber.win rogue website, which then redirects to other (about 2-3) untrustworthy sites that often contain malicious content and can cause high-risk computer infections. Furthermore, PUPs gather user information, such as visited websites, IP addresses, geo-locations, keystrokes, search queries, and so on. Gathered data could include sensitive/personally-identifiable information that is shared with third parties (potentially cyber criminals) and used to generate revenue. Information tracking and sharing can lead to privacy issues or, in some cases, even identity theft. Furthermore, potentially unwanted programs deliver intrusive ads that are displayed via tools that enable placement of third party graphical content on any site (and conceal underlying content). These ads can be very annoying and diminish the browsing experience. Furthermore, when clicked, they often redirect users to potentially malicious websites. Some are able to execute scripts that download and install potentially unwanted programs (potentially malicious ones). Some PUPs are able to run background tasks that might affect computer performance. Clearly, potentially unwanted programs can cause many problems and should thus be removed immediately.

There are many potentially unwanted programs available on the Internet, and many are identical (or at least very similar). Most developers offer supposedly useful tools/features and claim to be legitimate, however, these programs do not deliver any real value for regular users and are designed only to generate revenue by gathering information, causing unwanted redirects, and displaying intrusive ads.
How did adware install on my computer?
Most potentially unwanted programs can be downloaded from their official websites, however, they are often installed through intrusive advertisements or when developers use a deceptive marketing method called "bundling". Bundling is stealth installation of potentially unwanted programs with a regular software. Developers tend not to disclose information about such installations properly and hide PUPs in "Advanced", "Custom" and other similar sections of the installation processes. It is well known that most users skip the installation steps without paying attention to the details. PUP developers use this behaviour to their advantage - this is how they trick users into downloading various potentially unwanted programs.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
To avoid installation of potentially unwanted programs, download software using trustworthy and official websites only. Do not download software using third party software downloaders or torrents. Install software with care - study each installation step by inspecting all available checkboxes, "Custom"/"Advanced" settings, and other similar options. Deselect unwanted offers/features and only then finish the installation. Remember that intrusive ads often appear legitimate, however, there are many ads of this type that cause unwanted redirects to various websites such as gambling, pornography, adult dating, etc. If you happen to click an ad of this type and are redirected to an untrustworthy/suspicious website, close it immediately and see if there are any unwanted extensions, add-ons, or plug-ins installed on your browser. Also check installed programs on your computer and remove all dubious/unwanted entries. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
