Cssnews.ru “Virus” Uninstall

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

Are you currently forced to use the Cssnews.ru search engine whenever you want to surf the web? Does this website appear all the time? If so, we are sorry to inform you that you have been infected with a nasty cyber infection. A browser hijacker, to be precise. Hijackers are a complete menace and there is no place for them on your machine. Luckily, if you are reading this article you are on the right path. If you take a couple of minutes, you will not only understand exactly what kind of parasite you are stuck with and why it is dangerous but you will also learn how to remove it in a few simple steps. And removing the hijacker is a must. If you leave it on board it won`t be long before you regret it.

For starters, the hijacker tricks you into installing it yourself AND leaves you oblivious to this. As soon as it enters it doesn’t waste any time but starts damaging your machine. Your browsers are its first target. Yes, all of them. The pest takes control over them by adding its pesky extension. Keep in mind that this extension is perfectly compatible with three of the most commonly used browsers – Mozilla, Chrome and Internet Explorer. This means that you don’t even have a single reliable browser to use anymore. They are all infected. And their default settings are altered. The hijacker is able to make all kinds of changes to your preferred settings and your approval is not something it needs. It can operate as it sees fit.

For instance, your homepage and favorite search engine are now gone and Cssnews.ru is in their place. This domain cannot be trusted. It promises fast, safe and accurate search results but it doesn’t deliver. On the contrary. It generates a huge number of unreliable, sponsored results which can lead you straight to malware. However, the engine does display some accurate links but there is no way of telling which is which until you click. And clicking is too much of a risk. Moreover, aside from being bombarded with unsafe links you are also constantly redirected to shady pages with questionable content. Surfing the web suddenly becomes an impossible task. And like this is not enough, the hijacker also throws a never ending pile of malicious ads your way.

Banners, coupons, pop-ups, deals, offers, video ads, best prices, etc. They are always on your screen blinking and blocking content. And, what is even more irritating, you cannot close them. Clicking anywhere on an ad may end up in more parasites infecting your PC. Most of the ads conceal more malware in them and your single slick equals your consent. It doesn’t matter if you clicked on purpose or in an attempt to close them. You can compromise your already compromised machine even more in no time.

Do you now see how the hijacker makes not using your computer at all the better option? You are interrupted all the time, you cannot fins what you are looking for and you are constantly one click away from more infections. And top it all, your privacy is jeopardized as the hijacker spies on your, monitors your every online move and sends all the information it can gather to the crooks behind it. The only way to regain control over your now underperforming machine is to remove the pest for good. To do so manually, use our removal guide below.

But before you do that, think of how the hijacker managed to get to you this time. As we mentioned, it tricked you to install it and this is true. All infections need your inactive cooperation to slither in. This includes the Cssnews.ru Hijacker. It needs your permission to enter and it uses tricks to get it. Of course, you wouldn’t give it if it asks you openly. That’s why it turns to deception and finesse. One of the most popular techniques all infection use is bundled software. If you download such packages often you have to be extra careful. You can never know what you may get as a “bonus”.

So, don’t be careless. Opt for the Advanced settings in the Setup Wizard instead of the Basic ones. This way you are able to check the entire bundle program by program and decide which ones you want and which ones you don’t. Don’t choose the faster option as it may cost you your safety. Also, do not rush the process by skipping steps and blindly pressing “I agree”. Doing so you are making yourself an even easier target. Parasites pray for your distraction and negligence. This is what they need the most. Always be on the alert no matter what you are doing online. You are the one who is responsible for keeping your machine safe.
