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

The page is bad news. If you see it taking over, you are in trouble. Your system is infected with a browser hijacker. It`s a simple correlation. If you see the site, you have the parasite. The hijacker has already managed to get on board and the`s appearance is its way of revealing itself to you. Take that as a big, neon warning sign. That’s what it is for you.

As soon as you spot the page start looking for the pest`s hiding place. Once you find and delete it, the will disappear. However, if you don’t take any measures, your problems will keep on piling up. The more time the hijacker spends undisturbed, the more issues it causes. It all may start as browsing intrusions but soon it grows into a severe security risk. Do yourself a favor and get rid of the parasite immediately. If you don’t, it will eventually get out of control and then things will get ugly.

The hijacker enters your PC via tricks and, most importantly, your inactive cooperation. Let`s explain. The hijacker is a program and in order to enter your machine, it needs your permission. Of course, no one would intentionally invite such a pest and the hackers behind know that. That’s why they use tricks to distribute their “product”. For example, the hijacker may be disguised as a fake program update. While you think you are updating Adobe Flash Player, you may be actually installing malware.

Also, be careful which pages you visit. There are many sites which feature drive-by downloads and the hijacker can land on board in seconds. Other techniques the hackers use include freeware bundles, corrupted links/pages, third-party ads, malicious messages on social media, etc. Be always on the alert. The Web is full of infections, praying for your distraction.

The Virus

The hijacker effectively ruins your browsing experience. Once in, it makes unauthorized changes in your browsers` settings. It replaces your previous homepage and search engine with It injects your browsers with ads as well. So, as a result, every time you go online you suffer intrusions. You are bombarded with ads and you are constantly redirected to shady pages. You cannot find anything you are looking for anymore. The page becomes your online shadow. It is everywhere.

Your online activities are completely demolished. You cannot surf the web normally. Nor safely. Your entire screen is covered with ads and links which are potentially dangerous. A single click is all it takes for you to invite more pests on board. And your machine is already suffering. Its speed slows down to a crawl. It crashes and freezes frequently. Your browsers freeze and lag too. But none of this comes even close to the danger this pest poses to your privacy. In fact, you can consider your private life no longer private.

The hijacker spies on your and monitors every online move you make. It has access to your IPs, email addresses, passwords, usernames, accounts, browser-related data, etc. It may even get its hands on your personally identifiable and financial information. Especially if you use your computer to make online payments or to shop. And you should know what all the infection has access to, the crooks behind it have access to as well. Everything the hijacker collects gets sent to them. There is no need of explaining just how dangerous this is. Get rid of this plague until it is not too late.
