Do you know what dregol.com is?

Dregol.com is identified as a browser hijacker, because it can infect various web browsers without the permission of their users.

These threats come from the same family, and you have to remove them for the same reasons. We indicate that you must delete dregol.com from your browsers due to security reasons. If you do not remove the suspicious search engine, you might be subjected to unreliable content, and silently running tracking cookies could be used to spy on you.dregol.com Removal Guidedregol.com screenshot

It is unfair to call dregol.com a browser hijacker in all cases. If you have agreed to install the search tool yourself, it is not a hijacker, but if you have found the program running without your permission, you must remove dregol.com as a hijacker. Regardless of how this search tool was installed on your PC, it is possible that it is not the only threat that might require removal. Our research team has found that the suspicious dregol.com can be distributed using Installcore installers that carry DealKeeper, Optimizer Pro, RegClean Pro, MyPCBackup, and other undesirable programs. Adware and potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) installed with the hijacker could be just as unreliable, which is why you should delete them. Unfortunately, many users have trouble identifying the programs that should be removed. Are you struggling with this as well? Then install a malware scanner that will alleviate the operation for you.

Even though dregol.com does not look any different from authentic, reliable search tools, our malware researchers warn that it could expose you to misleading content (e.g., sponsored search results, ads) and install unreliable cookies to track your virtual activity. Unfortunately, the cookies could be used to create more attractive offers, which is why computer users often think that the browser hijacker is reliable and even useful. We do not recommend trusting this hijacker. On the contrary, we suggest removing dregol.com! Use the manual removal guide below and install an automated remover to delete the PUPs, adware, and other unreliable software installed with dregol.com.
