Dnav.com “Virus” Uninstall

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

Do you know what browser hijackers are and what they can do to your system? If you have ever encountered with one, you must know what a plague it is and what kind of problems it causes. If you have been lucky and you have never had to deal with a hijacker before, you reading this article probably means that your turn has come. Hijackers completely deserve their name as they hijack your browsers and take complete control over them leaving you to stand aside and watch. They are a menace and having one on board will make your online experience impossible to enjoy. This is exactly what Dnav.com will do as well. It is a browser hijacker. Actually, it is a malicious site which conceals a hijacker.

Either way, if you see the page you should know that a hijacker has managed to infect you and showing you the Dnav.com site is its way of informing you of its presence. Not that you could have missed it. Once in your system, the hijacker takes actions which are impossible to not notice. More on that later on. The point is that you should take the page`s appearance as a warning because that what it is. The minute you spot it start looking for the parasite`s hiding place. And do it as soon as possible. Hesitating will give the pest enough time to make a complete mess of your system. It is very important to take measures on time. Otherwise, you will be in for a world of trouble.

When the hijacker it already in your system the mess-making begins. It meddles and messes with your browser default settings and it does this completely behind you back. Your permission of the modifications it makes it neither needed nor required. One day you open your preferred browser to find that your homepage and search engine have been replaced. The hijacker has substituted them with its own domain – Dnav.com, which, as you can imagine, is highly unreliable. However, from this moment on you see the Dnav.com site all the time. It pops up all of a sudden when you are visiting other pages and you constantly get redirected to back to it. And Dnav.com is not the only page you are forced to see even though it is the one you see most often. There are others as well, which are just as shady and potentially dangerous.

Also, the hijacker is responsible for the avalanche of annoying pop-up ads you get bombarded with every day. Ads in every form you can imagine will overwhelm your browser on daily basis. There are flickering on your screen no matter what you are doing, prompting you to click on them. Whatever you do, don’t click on even single one. The ads are dangerous and hide more malware in them. And your click equals your permission to invite another infection on board. An infection which could turn out to be much more dangerous than the one you are currently dealing with. Like a Trojan, for example, or, even worse, a ransomware. You can flood your machine with numerous infections and not even realize it. You should now that if this happens, the Blue Screen of Death won`t take long to come. Avoid all the hijackers generates. The ads, the pages you get redirected to, everything. Chances are it is harmful and it will worsen your situation. All these interruptions affect your PC too. For instance, its speed slows down to a crawl, your system freezes and/or crashes more often, and you may experience some Internet connection issues too.

However, all of this pales in comparison to the privacy risk you are taking by allowing the pest to stay. The hijacker spies on you, monitors your every online move and keeps all the information. We are talking of information of all kinds: IPs, emails, accounts, usernames, passwords, browser-related data, etc. It keeps on gathering sensitive information until it decides it has enough. After that, it hands it over to the crooks behind it. That how crooks end up in possession of your personal data. Imagine if the hijacker gets its hand on your financial and identifiable information as well. As long as it stays, your private life is not private. And you cannot allow cybercriminals to have that kind of power over you. Waste no more time but do the right thing and delete the parasite. To do so manually, use our removal instructions below.

We established what the hijacker does but how did it manage to slither in undetected? It tricked you into allowing it to, that’s how. Hijackers cannot get it without receiving your permission first. However, if they ask for it using a big neon sing “THREAT” of course you would say no. That’s why they turn to the old but gold means of infiltration to help it dupe you. Like freeware, which is one of the most popular tactics. Especially if you use unverified sourced to get it. Unless you check the entire bundle you cannot know what you are getting in addition. Spam emails and corrupted links/pages/ads are also a way for a hijacker to invade. As well as it pretending to be a program update, like Adobe Flash Player update.

The methods are many but there is something you can do to increase your chances at catching an intruder on the spot. For example, always opt for the Advanced settings instead of the Basic ones, take the time to read the Terms and Conditions and the EULA, don’t rush installation processes by blindly clicking “next/ok/I agree” and be careful what email you are opening. To sum up, be vigilant and don’t provide the negligence which the infection desperately needs to get it.
