The following fields listed on the Threat Meter containing a specific value, are explained in detail below:
Threat Level: The threat level scale goes from 1 to 10 where 10 is the highest level of severity and 1 is the lowest level of severity. Each specific level is relative to the threat's consistent assessed behaviors collected from SpyHunter's risk assessment model.
Detection Count: The collective number of confirmed and suspected cases of a particular malware threat. The detection count is calculated from infected PCs retrieved from diagnostic and scan log reports generated by SpyHunter.
Volume Count: Similar to the detection count, the Volume Count is specifically based on the number of confirmed and suspected threats infecting systems on a daily basis. High volume counts usually represent a popular threat but may or may not have infected a large number of systems. High detection count threats could lay dormant and have a low volume count. Criteria for Volume Count is relative to a daily detection count.
Trend Path: The Trend Path, utilizing an up arrow, down arrow or equal symbol, represents the level of recent movement of a particular threat. Up arrows represent an increase, down arrows represent a decline and the equal symbol represent no change to a threat's recent movement.
% Impact (Last 7 Days): This demonstrates a 7-day period change in the frequency of a malware threat infecting PCs. The percentage impact correlates directly to the current Trend Path to determine a rise or decline in the percentage.

Kwible Search is an adware program that modifies your Web pages by inserting advertisements and search results from third parties. Although Kwible Search doesn't have a history of promoting harmful Web content, SpywareRemove.com malware experts do warn that Kwible Search often interferes with the victim's normal Web browser usage and, contrary to its marketing, may be difficult to remove from your PC through standard methods. Kwible Search is nowhere near a high-level PC threat, but removing Kwible Search with a trusted anti-malware scanner is suggested for the sake of keeping your browser's performance at an optimal level.
Our Quibbles with Kwible Search's Ways of Helping Your Browser
Kwible Search is a browser add-on that is marketed by its affiliated website, which provides online searches (that, naturally, redirect you to real search engines like Google and Yahoo Search). While Kwible Search does redirect all of your searches to its site, Kwible Search also includes features to help set Kwible Search apart from other search-related add-ons like Search Assistant WebSearch... but not in a good way. Along with its search redirects, Kwible Search also includes advertisement injections that modify various Web pages as they're loaded into your browser; examples of commonly-targeted sites include Ebay, Yahoo and Amazon. Because Kwible Search displays its advertisements in formats that frequently interfere with your access the content underneath them, Kwible Search may block you from using certain site features or otherwise prevent you from engaging with a site's content appropriately.
Kwible Search may be difficult to uninstall and keep its browser changes intact even if you use the Windows Control Panel to remove Kwible Search from your PC – which, incidentally, is the removal method that's recommended by the Kwible Search website. Even without its direct interference with your interaction with other websites, Kwible Search's functions are sufficiently invasive that SpywareRemove.com malware experts have no problems in categorizing Kwible Search as adware that should be removed posthaste.
Getting Your Web Searches without the Taste of Kwible in Them
While advertisements or redirects from Kwible Search infections are not likely to harm your PC extensively, SpywareRemove.com malware researchers do consider Kwible Search a minor security issue that should be deleted as soon as it's feasible for you to do it. With appropriate anti-malware tools, removing Kwible Search should be as simple as scanning your PC, although Kwible Search's newly-detected nature may make outdated scanners less capable than more up-to-date ones of detecting Kwible Search and its browser changes with perfect accuracy.
Kwible Search and other adware programs often are installed as bundles with other applications. Being cautious about which sites you choose to use for downloads and examining optional installations options are key to avoiding unwanted adware infections, but Kwible Search also may be installed without any symptoms or even your consent, hence the usefulness of having anti-malware software to remove Kwible Search.
