Danger level 7
Type: Browser Hijackers
Common infection symptoms:
  • Hijacks homepage
  • Changes default search engine

Finding in your browsers as your homepage can only mean one thing: Your computer has been infiltrated by a browser hijacker. This stealthy intruder breaches your privacy the moment it sets this search engine as your homepage and default search engine in your browsers without your permission, which you should not tolerate if you are a security-minded person. How could you trust a search engine that virtually invaded your computer? What may happen if you use it or keep it on your PC? If you want to find out the answers to these important questions, please continue reading. However, we can tell you one thing right now: You need to remove from your computer before you will be exposed to unreliable third-party content and cause more damage to your system.

The most likely way for this browser hijacker to enter your computer is via freeware bundles. This is a rather questionable method to deliver third-party programs to users. Nowadays schemers tend to use bundles because they can promote these packages on shady freeware sites, which are visited by millions of unsuspecting and inexperienced computer users every day. What could be more efficient? A bundle can be packed with a number of malware threats, such as browser hijackers, adware programs, and even potentially unwanted programs. All these infections may be able to introduce you to dangerous websites and third-party content. Therefore, leaving them on board after you delete might as well end in a disaster. That is why we recommend that you run a system scan to detect all the threats that can still be present on your computer.

Once this hijacker penetrates your computer, it will set as your homepage and search engine most probably without your consent. Since this infection can affect all major browsers, including Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Microsoft Edge as well, you cannot really avoid it. When you launch any of these browsers you will face this unreliable search engine. We do not recommend that you use it for searching the web, not even once. As a matter of fact, this hijacker may modify the search results and display you potentially unreliable third-party sponsored links and advertisements. One click is enough on a corrupted link and you may find yourself on a malicious website where all kinds of bad things can happen. For instance, you could easily be fooled into clicking on an infected download link, which may result in more malware threats on your computer. But you might also be scammed by criminals in much worse ways. We believe that you do not want to experience any of these; that is why we advise you to remove as soon as possible.

This is a tricky browser hijacker as it changes the Target lines of your browser shortcuts. This means that even if you try to restore your browser settings manually, will not stop haunting you; it will always be on your homepage. You could manually change this Target line for all your browsers, but we will tell you a better solution. This hijacker has a working uninstaller that should take care of this problem. If you run this uninstaller in Control Panel, a part of your problem will be solved. However, you will still need to reset all your browsers so that all the changes will be reset without leftovers. If you need assistance with these manual steps, please follow our guide below this article. Keep in mind that this will only make one infection disappear. You should handle all threats in order to restore the previous order on your PC. Therefore, we suggest that you install a professional malware removal application that will protect you from all existing malware infections.
