You are infected with a browser hijacker. How do we know? The fact that you are currently reading this article shows that you cannot get rid of the CLICK-NOW-ON.ME site. Is that correct? Do this page appear every time you open one of your browsers? If yes, then the invasion is a fact. You are dealing with a hijacker infection which should be removed from your PC as soon as possible. Hijackers are incredibly annoying. They are also dangerous, though.
So, don’t expect this pest to be helpful to you in any sort of way. It won`t be. It was never meant to be. On the contrary. The more time the parasite spends on your machine, the more problems and headaches it causes. Do your best to remove it the first chance you get. Once you start seeing the CLICK-NOW-ON.ME page, take it as a warning sign, and heed it. The hijacker is hiding somewhere in your system. Find its lurking spot and delete it immediately. If you don`t, prepare yourself for a ton of troubles. Sooner or later this pest will get out of control and then your predicament will go from bad to worse. Don’t let that happen. Take actions now!
The hijacker does exactly what its name implies – it hijacks your browsers. All of your browsers, to be clearer. From the moment it enters, it starts making changes in your settings without any permission of yours. It replaces your homepage and search engine behind your back. It redirects you to shady sites all the time. It injects numerous ads on every page that you attempt to visit. Of course, nothing you see because of this threat is reliable. You can easily infect your machine with more malware with a single click on the wrong ad/link. This makes your web surfing very difficult, let along extremely annoying. But there is something even worse than that.
Even if you have nerves of steel and the never-ending intrusions are not bothering you that much, you cannot put up with the security risk this pest exposes you to. The hijacker is programmed to spy on you and monitor your every online move. It uses your browsers as spying devices and gathers all the sensitive information about you that it can. Once it deems it has enough data, it sends it. To whom? To the cybercriminals who created it, of course. They get full access to your private details and they can use it for whatever they see fit.
The crooks are the last people who should have suck kind of access. They will use your data for nothing but their malicious purposes. The question is are you going to sit idly by and let them, or are you going to take matters into your hands and remove the stealing hijacker from your system? We strongly suggest you do the latter. Use our removal guide below and get rid of the intruder ASAP. The sooner, the better.
How did the hijacker enter your machine undetected? The pest tricked you. It cannot get in without your permission, so it asks for it. However, it asks for it in the sneakiest way possible with the help of deceiving tricks like freeware bundles, spam, malicious ads, fake updates, etc. It hides behind them, hoping that you will be careless enough not to notice it. Sadly, usually, you are. You don’t pay attention to what you let enter your system and end up infecting your own computer. Be more vigilant and careful. Do your due diligence. Read what you are agreeing to beforehand. If you don’t protect your PC yourself, nobody else will.
