The threat may also display pop-up advertisements, so if you want to keep the computer as clean as possible, do not click on the ads and remove hao123 toolbar as soon as you can.
As it may be insufficient to remove the infection manually by changing the settings of the browsers, use a reliable spyware removal tool and delete hao123 toolbar automatically.
