Nationzoom.com

Nationzoom.com is a browser hijacker that masquerades as a reliable search engine. It comes from the same batch as Qvo6 Virus, Aartemis, Qone8 Virus, iSearch.omiga-plus.com and other similar infections. The main reason why nationzoom.com arrives at your system is, of course, money. By redirecting you to affiliated websites and forcing you to click the pop-up advertisements, the people behind nationzoom.com earn financial profit via pay-per-click system. Although it is not as dangerous as a Trojan or a rogue infection, nationzoom.com still should not be tolerated at any cost.

A lot of users prefer to remove nationzoom.com manually, but that does not guarantee that the application will not come back. These browser hijackers are very resilient, and if you miss at least one directory or part of the settings which determine whether nationzoom.com can be removed or not, you can be sure that instead of your default home page you will see nationzoom.com appear once more, and you will definitely be exposed to a variety of potential security threats.

The alarming fact is that most probably you allowed nationzoom.com to enter your system yourself. All the browser hijackers from this family are distributed bundled with freeware. It means that such third party programs as video players, PDF file readers, file converters, various browser extensions and other applications, that are available free of charge at a number of websites, can come together with the installer file for nationzoom.com, and once you run a particular program that is part of the browser hijacker’s distribution network, your browser settings will be modified immediately.

At first nationzoom.com will not seem dangerous at all, but then you will notice an extensive number of commercial advertisements that appear on the main page and when you browse the Internet. What is more, nationzoom.com can also make use of cookies to collect information on your web browsing habits – what websites you visit, what you search for online, your main computer system information and so on. Later on this information might be shared or even leaked to a third party for marketing purposes. However, you cannot rule out that possibility that nationzoom.com could expose you to dangerous infections as well.

After all, the pop-up and other types of ads displayed by nationzoom.com usually contain third party content, so even malevolent third parties could embed their corrupted links into the ads. Therefore, you need to take your computer safety seriously and remove nationzoom.com at once. Below you will find instructions on how to restore your default browser settings, but that does not guarantee that the infection will stay away. To prevent any regeneration, scan your PC with SpyHunter free scanner and then acquire a licensed antimalware tool that will definitely keep nationzoom.com and similar infections at bay.
