I wrote this article to help you remove Npasre Virus. This Npasre Virus removal guide works for Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer.

Npasre is a browser hijacker and, judging by the fact that you are reading this article, it is pretty safe to say that you are currently infected by it. Now, do not panic. In a way, you have been lucky to get stuck with this particular pest. Hijackers are, in fact, very annoying and dangerous, but they are also relatively easy to tackle. You could have downloaded a much more serious threat. Like a Trojan horse or a ransomware for example. Yet, the hijackers must not be underestimated. On the contrary. The pest has to be removed ASAP. The more time it spends on board, the more problematic it will get and the harder it will get for you to remove it. And, it is capable of causing some irreversible damage to your computer.

The issues you will be forced to face are many but none of them comes even close to the security risk you are taking by hosting the parasite. Npasre jeopardizes your privacy by spying on your and threatening to expose everything to strangers. The parasite has access to your IPs, email addresses, usernames, passwords, browser-related data, etc. It may even get its hands on your personally identifiable and financial data. The question is are you going to let it? All is up to you. You can either sit idly by while the pest is wrecking your machine, or you can step up and delete it as fast as you can. We suggest the second option. It is the obvious choice. No infection has a place on your PC. Delete Npasre now and save yourself a ton of problems.

Once having slithered in, Npasre doesn’t waste time. First, it goes after your browsers. It takes control over them. The infection replaces your homepage and search engine with its own malicious domain. From this moment on, you cannot trust your browsers. The new search engine you are forced to use doesn’t generate safe results. It mostly shows you corrupted ones which may lead to very dangerous pages. Needless to say, your permission was not needed when this modification was made. The virus didn’t ask you whether it is okay or not to change your engine. Just like it doesn’t ask you whether it is okay or not to bombard with you very annoying advertisements all the time. But it does. You are buried with ads in all shapes and forms.

Every time you touch your browser, you get interrupted either by redirects or by commercials. Do you see how this infection completely ruins your online experience? You cannot get any work done and you are always at risk of landing on a malicious page. Also, all of this doesn’t go unnoticed by your machine. It is also suffering. Because of the pest, your computer is slow and it crashes frequently. Your browsers are overwhelmed with advertisements so they freeze as well. Your whole machine is underperforming. And do not forget about the privacy risk. This hijacker has nothing good to offer you. You gain nothing by keeping it. If you delete it, however, you gain a lot. To do so manually, use our removal guide below.

Once you clean your PC, make sure it stays clean. Like most infections, hijackers turn to the oldest tricks in the book to enter your machine. They are bound to seek your approval on their installment so they rely on tactics to get it. Tactics like freeware, for instance. Or spam emails. Or corrupted pages/links. Let`s not forget about the fake updates. Sometime you may think you are updating Java, but what you are actually doing it giving a pest green light.

So, pay more attention. Don’t be distracted as this is what infections pray for. If you want to keep your machine infection-free, do your due diligence. Don’t skip the Terms and Conditions during installation processes. Don’t open emails from people you don’t know. Don’t click on every ad that comes your way and stay clear of suspicious pages. Infections rely on your carelessness. Don’t provide it.
