GadgetBox (search.gboxapp.com, gboxapp.com, Gadget Box ) is adware and spyware categorized as a browser hijacker distributed and published as freeware by WEB PICK – INTERNET HOLDINGS LTD. Gadget Box installs directly onto your internet browser and computer. GadgetBox also bundles with other malware applications which can multiply the affects of malformed internet browser settings. A GadgetBox infection installs browser helper objects (managed search provider, toolbar) to infected internet browsers and causes website search and URL input to redirect to http://search.gboxapp.com/. This is why GadgetBox is also referred to as a redirection virus.

So it needs to be removed
