The Dilyme.com is a browser hijacker. Actually, it is a malicious page which indicates the presence of the hijacker. The pest has already managed to enter your PC and the appearance of the site is its way of revealing itself. Accept that as a warning. That’s what it is. It is a big, neon alert which screams “hijacker”. Heed it. Hijackers make for horrible tenants. They are the perfect combination of useless, annoying and hazardous. The one you are stuck with is not an exception. Do not keep it on board. It will cause you nothing but troubles and grievances. Do your best to get rid of it as soon as possible.
Once you start seeing the Dilyme.com site, accept the fact your machine is no longer infection-free and take actions. The hijacker is hiding somewhere on your computer. Find where and delete it on discovery. The sooner you do so, the better. Letting it stay will not only result in ruined browsing experience but in a severe privacy risk as well. Yes, this parasite is jeopardizing your private details by spying on you and collecting sensitive information. Once it gathers enough, it sends it all to the crooks behind it.

Aside from the privacy risk, the hijacker also exposes you to daily malware risk. Let`s explain. The pest enters your machine and immediately infects all of your browsers. The Dilyme.com site becomes your constant online companion. Every time you so much as touch one of your browsers, the page pops up. It even takes the places of your homepage and search engine behind your back. From this moment on, it is the one to decide what appears on your screen. And let us tell you, nothing you see is reliable.
You get flooded with countless commercials neither of which is safe. A single click on the wrong one and you automatically download more pests on your already infected machine. In addition, the search results your new engine provides cannot be trusted either. They mostly lead to shady, potentially dangerous pages. Again, you click, you get infections. Your entire browsing experience is demolished because of the pest. Surfing the web as peace becomes an impossible task. Add to that the privacy risk and the decision gets made for you. The hijacker has to go! Now! Follow our removal guide at the end of this article and get rid of this menace manually. The sooner, the better.
How did the adware enter your PC? Infections like this have to ask for permission to get in. And they do, but not straightforwardly. They use tricky methods to get your approval. Otherwise, you would never give it. Some of the tactics hijackers use to dupe you include freeware/shareware bundles, fake program/system updates, corrupted pages/links, third-party malicious ads, unverified torrents, illegitimate download sources, etc. But neither of these tricks is good enough to work without your inactive cooperation, aka your negligence.
Be very careful what you are saying yes to as you may think you are updating Java, for instance, while in fact, you are giving an infection green light. Do your due diligence and always read the Terms and Conditions/EULA before accepting them. Also, stay away from dodgy pages and use reliable download source only. If you don’t protect your PC yourself, no one else will. Don’t throw caution to the wind. Pay attention. This is the only way to keep infections away.
