- Hijacks homepage
- Changes default search engine
Dnav.com is a browser hijacker that is very similar to the recently reviewed Seekforsearch.com. Though it appears that both of these hijackers were created by different companies, it seems that they were created using the same engine. According to our research, the interface of the hijacker is very similar to the interfaces of the hijackers from the Trovi family. Uniquely, these infections display a “Results by Bing” bar at the top. This bar represents Web, Images, Videos, News, and Weather tools, all of which redirect to bing.com search results. The good news is that this search engine is legitimate, and it does not look like the hijacker can manipulate the results to inject malicious, corrupted links. Due to this, most users tend to classify the search tool as harmless. Although it is not a critically dangerous infection, there are important reasons to delete it from your web browsers. Whether you use Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, or Mozilla Firefox, we can help you remove Dnav.com successfully.
Why does Dnav.com need to record any kind of information about you; if we ignore personally identifiable information? It is stated that the search tool uses data-tracking tools to improve services, notify about updates, and provide users with support. Considering that most virtual services are supported by data-tracking tools, it is not that suspicious that the hijacker spies on you as well. However, it is classified as an infection, and you should not ignore infections capable of spying on you. Note that if Dnav.com has corrupted your browsers, other threats might be active as well, and their data trackers might require your attention as well. Even if you are sure that third-party malware does not exist, we advise performing a full system scan just to be 100% sure. Because the hijacker is most likely to spread via software bundles, the chances of other threats slithering in are pretty high.
You do not need to have a lot of experience to delete Dnav.com successfully. This hijacker is most likely to corrupt homepage and default search provider tools, which can be easily replaced directly from your browser. Another method would be resetting your browsers, and this is the solution we propose because by resetting your browsers you will simultaneously get rid of unreliable information-tracking cookies as well. Though all cookies will be erased, and you might need to accept the cookies on legitimate sites again, you should not hesitate to follow the instructions below. If you are completely uninterested in this solution, you can turn to automated malware detection and removal software that will immediately erase all threats (including malicious data-tracking tools) from your operating system.
