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

Moosjs.cn is a browser hijacker and, as such, it is equally useless, annoying and dangerous. If you let it stay on board it will quickly go out of hand and, when this happens, there is not much that you can do. Hijackers sneak into your system undetected but there are signs which confirm the pest`s presence. The Moosjs.cn page, for instance. This site is your first clue. The hijacker uses it as a cover but you should take it as a warning.

Think of it this way: the page didn’t appear as if my magic. Something forced it on you and this something is the hijacker. As soon as you spot the page, start looking where the pest it hiding. Don’t waste time as the hijacker, for sure, is not. The more time it spends in your system the more problems it can and WILL cause. Hijackers are mostly associated with browser interruptions and irritation which are all true. However, there is something else which you cannot afford yourself to ignore. The security risk you are taking by keeping the parasite on board.

All hijackers are able to spy on you and monitor your every move and gather information. They can get to anything starting from IPs, accounts, and email addresses to passwords, usernames, and browser-related data. The problem is that is the hijacker has access to them so do the crooks. Imagine what could happen is the pest gets to your financial and personal data. If this happens, there is no scenario in which you can come out as a winner.

The security risk is, without a doubt, the most serious threat the parasites poses but there are others as well and none of them should be underestimated. When the infection sneaks, it goes for your browsers first. It adds a pesky plugin making them unreliable. From this moment on you are no longer in charge and there is nothing you can do. The hijacker starts making whatever changes it want without your permission. Your preferences are not a priority anymore. You just open your browser one day to find out that your previous homepage and search engine have been replaced with Moosjs.cn. The hijacker`s domain is in their places. It goes without saying that you cannot change this back. The Moosjs.cn site is your brand new homepage. You see it all the time. It becomes your online shadow and you cannot get rid of it. Each time you try loading another page you get redirected back to Moosjs.cn. It is just always there.

Also, you are flooded with all kinds of annoying commercials 24/7. The hijacker bombards you with pop-ups, banners, deals, offers, coupons, best prices, video games, etc. The ads are so many and so annoying that you would be better off not using your PC at all. Otherwise, all you do is trying to load a page and close the hundreds of ads which block its content. Of course, you cannot close them. Not only that. You can also worsen your situation while trying. You see, most of these ads are dangerous as they conceal malware in them or lead to pages laced with malware. If you click on them on purpose or accidentally while trying to close them you will get infected. Your click equals your consent.

A single click is more than enough to invite more threats over. And you have not dealt whit this one yet, which makes your machine slow as a snail. It causes your system to crash and your browsers to freeze. Things are pretty bad right now, what do you think would happen if you have ten more infections on board? How long is your PC going to hold on before crashing for good? Trust us on this, not long. Dot only doesn’t the hijacker do anything useful but it actually wrecks your computer. When you add to this the above-mentioned security issues, the way we see it you have all cons and not even a single pro. Don’t hesitate. Use our removal guide below and uninstall Moosjs.cn for good.

Also, make sure such or other infection won’t attack you again. Do you know how Moosjs.cn succeeded this time? You let it. That’s right. Hijackers need your permission to get it and, given your situation, you must have given it. However, don’t rush blaming yourself. These infections are sneaky. They DO ask for green light but in the sneakiest way possible. They never do it openly. They use tricks like spam emails, fake program updates, corrupted links/pages/ads/torrents, freeware/shareware bundles, etc. to trick you into approving the installment.

So, as it turns out, there is something hijackers need even more that your approval – your carelessness. Don’t make it easier for them by being so negligent. Be careful. Read twice before agreeing to something. Never skip steps. Take the time to read the Terms and Conditions. When installing a bundle, always opt for the Advanced settings in the Setup Wizard. They allow you to see every single program in the package and deselect it if needed as often such packages include dangerous programs. And last but not least, get yourself a reliable anti-malware software, keep it updated, and regularly scan your machine to be sure it remains infection-free.
