Omiga Plus

What is Omiga Plus?

Omiga Plus is a browser hijacker which can set as a new home page of the installed web browsers. The infection can affect Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome browsers without any warning, which is why the search provider is considered to be unreliable and intrusive. Do you know what could happen if you did not remove Omiga Plus hijacker? The infection could spy on your virtual activity, assist in virtual data theft and even malware infiltration. Even though the creators (Taiwan Shui Mu Chih Ching Technology) of the search tool may have no intention of putting your virtual security at risk, you can be sure that interacting with it is not secure.

How does Omiga Plus work?

The installation of Omiga Plus is more complicated and multi-layered than you think. Once installed it activates the Windows Protect Manager which could aggravate the removal of the browser hijacker. What is more, the infection modifies the browser shortcut files setting as the default search tool. If you do not reset the settings of the browser shortcuts, you will not be able to delete Omiga Plus manually. Regarding this disturbing feature, the infection works similarly to Qvo6, Qone8, Aartemis, and other infamous browser hijackers. Another thing that these threats have in common is the distribution. According to malware researchers here at, you may need to worry about the removal of browser hijackers if you accidentally download bundled software.

Omiga Plus travels bundled with Desk 365, SoftStud, Fast Start, and other questionable applications which we recommend having deleted as well. Unfortunately, the real threat hides behind the hijacker itself. The banner advertisements, pop-up ads and sponsored search results displayed by the infection all represent the links to third party sites. Whether you discover advertisements served by or any other server, you should not click on them because one click could be enough to unleash malware installers.

How to remove Omiga Plus?

Omiga Plus removal should be your priority if you have discovered the malicious infection on your PC. Unfortunately, many computer users postpone the operation, especially if they have already attempted the manual removal because the infection can regenerate. If you want to delete all existing PUPs, adware and other infections simultaneously we suggest the installation of automatic malware detection and removal software. Ultimately, it does not matter how you choose to delete the infection, as it is most important that you do delete it. Of course, virtual security researchers choose automatic malware removers because they can guarantee further virtual protection as well.

  1. Hi - unfortunately when I go to my control panel I see omiga plus uninstaller and it won't let me uninstall it! It brings up a omiga pop up box saying it is waiting and nothing ever happens. Can I continue with the remaining steps? Or what should I do?

    • Dear Gemma,

      What is your operating system? It happens sometimes that these "uninstaller's" are there to trick people so that they would think they have removed the browser hijacker. I suggest downloading a professional anti-malware tool that would eliminate it from the system.

      Have a good day.

  2. Help to remove this omiga plus uninstaller

  3. Hi –
    I Can't see omega in control panel and I did all the removal steps from IE, Mozila, Chrome.

    and after doing all these step there is no search engine in browsers but when I start any browser the home page is F**king Omiga..

    I am using windows 8.1 and Bitdefender Total Security...

    Please help and advice.

    Thanks in advance dear.

    • Hi Kaps,

      If none of the manual Omiga Plusa removal tools helped, I suggest you find a more powerful antimalware tool in terms of browser hijackers. Bitdefender and other anti-virus tools are not as focused on adware and browser hijackers and that may be the reason why it does not locate Omiga on your system.

      Best Regards.

  4. Hi,

    I can't see Omiga Plus in the list of programs to uninstall and my homepage in Mozilla doesn't say that it's Mozilla with Omega at the end, it just says it's Mozilla. I'm so lost with what to do. Nothing I've searched online to try remove it is working.
