The Gilda is a browser hijacker developed by Conduit Ltd., the company responsible for introduction and massive spread of all kinds of annoying toolbars, browser hijackers, extensions and add-ons, which altogether can be summarized into one simple and clear category of adware. If “The Gilda” attacked your browser this means that you will see the page my.thegilda.com on startup of your browser. These instructions are meant to help you get rid of ‘The Gilda’ malware from your browser.
Technically ‘The Gilda’ isn’t a virus, however, it can be fairly classified as a potentially unwanted software. It mainly comes into computers as a result of user installing some other free programs downloaded online. Alternatively, my.thegilda.com may hijack your home page as a consequence of clicking some advertisement banners or links displayed in other adware programs or on the startup pages of browser infected with other browser hijackers. Just as an example, we’ve installed the well-known Babylon toolbar on our test computer, then we clicked the advertisement banner on the startup page of our hijacked browser, and this is how we eventually got ‘The Gilda” infection on our computer.
The problem with ‘The Gilda’ is that this adware and browser hijacker is related to a lot of other malwares and adware programs, which in their turn may infect your system even more. This is why you should stay away of clicking any banners or sponsored links displayed together with the search results redirected through this browser hijacker. Remember that this is not safe for your PC.
