Danger level 8
Type: Browser Hijackers
Common infection symptoms:
  • Hijacks homepage
  • Changes default search engine

Did just appear unexpectedly in your browser when you launched it? In that case, there is a good chance that your computer has been silently attacked by a browser hijacker. The presence of this hijacker may also mean that there are several other malware threats challenging your Windows operating system already. Without proper protection, your computer may face different degrees of virtual security problems emerging from this situation. You should not use or trust this search engine if you do not want to be introduced to unsafe third-party content. Knowing what to expect when you have this hijacker on-board can save you a lot of headaches. For a detailed description and how you can remove from your computer, please read our full report.

This browser hijacker silently, i.e., without your permission, sets as your new home page in the three most popular browsers, including Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Google Chrome as well. Therefore, no matter which of these is your preferred browser, whenever you open it, you will have to face this unreliable search engine. It does not only offer you a search box, which, by the way, will simply redirect you to a Google search results page making this search page totally redundant, but it also provides you with several easy access links below the search box. These quick links or thumbnails include Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, and eBay. The latter two links, however, may take you to modified sites with certain third-party ads inserted. Unfortunately, this browser hijacker may also modify the search results, and that is why we warn you not to click on any links or ads related to this search engine. You should remove as soon as possible if you do not want to end up on unreliable websites.

This browser hijacker may infiltrate your computer in free software bundles, which may contain other malware programs as well. Users mostly initiate the download of such infected bundles themselves even if they might think that they have been infected with malware. As a matter of fact, even if you download such a package accidentally by clicking on a fake button, for example, you can still stop unwanted programs from landing on your computer. How? You need to be careful during the installation. That is where you may be offered checkboxes to untick to say no to certain components, or at least by reading the agreement you would learn what additional tools you are installing. Unfortunately, a lot of users skip these crucial steps and end up with a bunch of infections on-board. Deleting will not save your computer in that case; all other infections have to be eliminated, too.

Hopefully, by now you can see why it is important that you remove from your PC. You can go about it either manually or use an automated solution. Please use our instructions below if you do not mind to get your fingers “dirty.” However, if you vote for a more efficient way to handle all present infections on your system, we advise you to install a reliable antimalware application. If you keep this tool updated, you can have perfect full-time protection. No more running after infections, no more headaches; just pure virtual peace – your decision.
