Finding in your browser when you launch it is not a good sign; as a matter of fact, it clearly indicates the presence of a browser hijacker on your computer. When a hijacker sneaks onto your system, it makes arbitrary changes to your browser settings without your knowledge. Not only is that a breach of your privacy, but it is also illegal. Still, most users tend to ignore this fact and leave this browser hijacker on-board. They may not be aware of the unfortunate consequences, but that is exactly why we are sharing here what we have found out about this malware infection. Hopefully, you will find it useful and you can protect your computer more efficiently after reading our article. Here is a good piece of advice for starters: You should remove if you want to regain your previous state of virtual security.

Most users get infected with this browser hijacker through freeware bundles. It is important to know that software bundling is a frequently used method for cyber criminals to distribute malware infections over the Internet. However, that does not make all bundles unreliable or malicious. You need to be very careful where you download applications from. If you accidentally end up on a suspicious freeware site, you should quickly close the tab before you click on some fake buttons or links and download such an infected bundle. People think that malware programs infect them silently, behind their backs, but we must tell you that they are wrong.

As a matter of fact, most people initiate the download of malware installers themselves. It is possible though that they do not realize what they let onto their computers. Of course, in most cases you will know shortly that adware applications or browser hijackers infiltrated your system because these threats are rather conspicuous. They have to be because that is how they make money for their creators. In order to protect your system from further penetration and infection, we suggest that you remove right now and run a full system malware scan to see what other threats are there that may be endangering the operation of your OS.

We have noticed that this browser hijacker is identical to and Search-Pile which belong to the SuperWeb family. Strangely enough, when you use this search tool, your search query will be redirected. First, a results page comes up for a second, but then, you will be taken to a results page. However, that page may be manipulated by this browser hijacker by inserting third-party ads and links. You can never trust these results because clicking on third-party links may easily redirect you to unsafe websites. The consequences of such an encounter could range from more malware infections to losing money to schemers. You should delete if you want to avoid such scenarios.

In order to entirely clean from your operating system, you have to uninstall the program first and then, reset your browsers. Please use our guide we have included below if you are not an experienced computer user. Since there may be other threats on your computer, we advise you to consider installing a powerful antimalware application to take care of all your security-related issues. Protecting your PC is in your best interest if you want to avoid future attacks.
