If you open your browser and suddenly your homepage is changed to Binkiland.com, then you have probably been infected with a browser hijacker. Binkiland.com is a search engine that gets set as your default homepage and search provider when a malicious infection enters your computer. You must remove Binkiland.com and anything related to it as soon as possible, restoring your browser settings to default. It might be challenging to do that on your own, but you can refer to the manual removal instructions below this description. Should you need any further assistance, you can always leave us a comment.
Binkiland.com doesn’t come out of nowhere. According to our security experts, this browser hijacker is identical to Astromenda, Vosteran, and Taplika hijackers that have caused havoc in users’ computers worldwide. The problem is that browser hijackers NEVER inform users about the oncoming changes. Binkiland.com and similar infections are malicious threats that slither into computer systems uninvited, in order to make easy money for their creators.
However, there are some tell-tale signs that should help you avoid the likes of Binkiland.com. For example, you should stay away from file sharing websites that distribute freeware. Since there is no direct download option available, Binkiland.com clearly spreads in software packages. Just like its predecessors, it is known to come in InstallCore installers from malavida.com and similar websites. What’s more, if your browser settings have been modified by Binkiland.com, you can almost be sure that DealKeeper, MyPCBackup, Optimizer Pro, RegClean Pro, and many other unwanted applications are on your system as well. These are just few of the programs this browser hijacker travels with.
Once Binkiland.com enters your computer, you can be sure that your browser settings will be affected immediately. It hijacks start page, search page and new tab. It would not be much of a problem if Binkiland.com could really provide you with reliable search service, but entering a query into its search box and pressing Enter redirects you to us.yhs4.search.yahoo.com. The same thing was observed with other browser hijackers in this group. As you can see, Binkiland.com does not even have a functioning search engine, so there’s no need to keep it.
On top of that, Binkiland.com could easily redirect you to partner websites to increase their traffic. When that happens, the people behind this infection get paid via the pay-per-click system. Binkiland.com also displays a flash advertisement on its homepage, and clicking it could lead you to other adware-related websites. In short, having this browser hijacker on your computer exposes you to a variety of potential computer security threats, so you have to delete Binkiland.com immediately.
Take note, that manual removal may not be enough to ensure that all malware-related files have been deleted from your PC. Therefore, you should seriously consider investing in a legitimate antimalware tool that will scan your computer and remove all the remaining threats automatically. Your computer security should be your utmost priority.
