I wrote this article to help you remove Weemi.com. This Weemi.com removal guide works for Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer.
Weemi.com is a page which appears under one specific condition: if you have a browser hijacker on board. The hijacker is the one that forces this site on you. It uses it as a front to lurk behind and as a way of announcing its presence. So, don’t ignore that warning. Hijacker parasites don’t make for pleasant tenants. On the contrary. These sneaky infections slither in your machine and then proceed to wreck it. The hijacker hiding behind Weemi.com is no exception.
Do not take it lightly. If you ignore the threat it poses, your situation will worsen very fast. The more time the pest spends on board, the worse things get for you. That’s why you need to take measures against it as soon as you realize your machine is infected. Every infection gets out of control eventually and, trust us when we say that you don’t want to deal with this hijacker once it is out of hand. Don’t procrastinate. Act now. The sooner you get rid of this virus, the better.
The hijacker starts messing with your system the minute it enters. For starters, you begin to see the Weemi.com page all the time. It is like your annoying online shadow. It appears when you open a new tab. It appears among the search results. It even replaces your previous homepage and search engine. All of this, of course, without any permission of yours.
The hijacker doesn’t need your approval to make changes in your browser settings. It is able to act as it sees fit. This is how you end up stuck with Weemi.com as a search engine. But beware. This site doesn’t generate safe and accurate search results as promised. What it actually provides is quick access to malware. You cannot surf the web at peace anymore. Let alone find anything you are searching for. You are bombarded with questionable links which may or may not be reliable. Closer to may not. Why, though. What does the adware gain from flooding you with these links? Simple. It ensures its existence.
The parasite was created for only one reason: to boost web traffic to particular pages and bring its owners pay-per-click revenue. If it fails, it gets taken down. That’s why the pest does its best to succeed. It buries you with sponsored links and if you click on one, crooks make money. Also, it throws a never-ending pile of pop ups your way. Pop-ups which serve the exact same purpose. Every time you click on something, you are sponsoring crooks. But not only that. You are also risking downloading more parasites on your machine. Nothing displayed by the pest is to be trusted. It only cares about bringing profits to the hackers behind it. Your safety is its last concern.
So, take matters into your own hands and avoid clicking on anything unless you want to invite more infections on your already infected computer. The hijacker you currently have is more than enough. It completely ruins your online experience by constantly interrupting you and flooding you with links and ads. It also slows down your machine and causes it to crash and freeze occasionally. In other words, neither browsing the Web nor using your PC in general is fun anymore. And to top it all, your private details get monitored all the time. The hijacker spies on you and gathers valuable data after which it sends it to the crooks who published it. Don’t put up with all of this. Find the infection and delete it on the spot. To do so manually, use our removal guide below.
How did you get infected with this? As we already mentioned, hijackers are very sneaky pests. They are bound to seek your permission to enter but they don’t do it straightforwardly. They do the exact opposite. They trick you into giving them green light. How? They turn to the oldest tricks in the book. For instance, spam email messages, freeware bundles, fake program updates, compromised pages/links/torrents, malicious third-party ads, etc.
What all of these tactics have in common is the fact that none of them would work without your carelessness. This is what hackers pray for the most. So, don’t grant it. Don’t give into naivety and haste as this way you are only helping crooks. Be vigilant. Always check and double-check what you are agreeing to. Never skip the Terms and Conditions when installing a program/update. Don’t open emails from unknown senders and stay away from shady sites. Do your due diligence and protect your PC.
