Nationzoom is a browser hijacker that enters your system bundled with freeware. It modifies your browser settings in order to collect information on your browsing habits and expose you to potentially harmful third party content. If you want to protect your computer from any potential malware infections it is important that you remove Nationzoom immediately from your computer. At the same time you should also remove all the other additional programs that might have arrived at your system along with the browser hijacker.
It is very likely that Nationzoom has been installed on your computer together with a variety of third party applications and other potentially unwanted programs. As there is no official website for Nationzoom itself that would distribute the infection, this browser hijacker usually makes use of other shareware programs to travel around the Internet. The same tactics have been applied by other infections from the same group – Aartemis, Delta-Homes, Qone8 Virus, Qvo6 virus and so on. Almost all of these browser hijackers are known to be bundled with Desk365 freeware. Also, as far as Nationzoom is concerned, it may also come together with Download Helper MaxiGet.
You basically expose yourself to this infection yourself, when you download various freeware applications at third party file hosting websites, like 4shared.com and so on. That is not to say that the website is malicious, but it hosts a lot of files and third party links that could eventually lead to potentially unwanted programs being installed on your PC, and Nationzoom is naturally one of them.
Therefore, if you want to get back the control of your browser, and you do not want your web browsing information to be collected by tracking cookies, you need to delete Nationzoom from your computer immediately. Reset your browser settings to default as it is indicated in the instructions below, and then scan your PC with SpyHunter free scanner to delete all the Nationzoom files automatically.
