I wrote this article to help you remove Mojotab.com. This Mojotab.com removal guide works for Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer.
Mojotab.com`s appearance is bad news for you. The site is associated with an infection. A browser hijacker parasite, to be exact. The two go hand in hand. If you see the page, you have the hijacker. That’s a fact. So, the sooner you accept your unpleasant situation, the sooner you can take measures against the threat. There is no time to be wasted. This infection is malicious and dangerous. It brings along nothing but troubles and headaches. If you leave it on board, it won`t be long before you regret that decision. Take the Mojotab.com page`s display as a big, neon warning sign which screams “danger”, and act on it.
If you spot the site taking over your browsers, start looking for the hijacker. It is already on your machine, hiding somewhere in the shadows. Find it and delete it upon discovery. You have nothing to lose but a lot to gain if you get rid of this intruder. Trust us, this pest will make a complete mess on your computer and the longer it stays the bigger the mess gets. If things get out of control, and they will eventually, you will face much more difficulties trying to clean your PC. Act while it is not too late. The hijacker has to go.
The Mojotab.com page becomes your online shadow. No matter what you do online, it appears. Open your browsers, and you get greeted with “Welcome to Mojotab”. You open a new tab, the site is there. You type in a search, the site is also there. It is everywhere. It even replaces your homepage and search engine behind your back and whenever you want to surf the web you are forced to use the site. This is not good. This new search engine doesn’t provide the safe and accurate results you hope for. What it does provide is quick access to malware. Yes, most of the results you see are corrupted and lead to dangerous pages, brimming with infections. If you click, you worsen your situation by downloading more unwanted pests.
Of course, there might be some perfectly safe links as well, but there is no way of telling which is which without clicking. You cannot tell them apart. Some of them are malicious ads even though they are not marked as suck. It is a nightmare. Your online activities are effectively destroyed. But not only that. Your machine struggles to perform even offline. Apps take ages to load. Your system crashes. Your PC lags and reboots for no apparent reason. And this will not stop unless you stop it yourself. The only way to do that is to remove the hijacker for good. To do so manually, use our removal guide below. Once it is gone, everything will get back to normal.
How did you end up stuck with the Mojotab.com hijacker? Well, since the hijacker is not a full-fledged virus but a malicious program, it needs your permission to enter. No permission, no admission. Sound quite simple but infections have found a way around this rule. They still seek your approval but with the help of tricky methods which leave you oblivious. For instance, they hide behind corrupted sites and links, spam email messages and their attachments, freeware and shareware bundles, third-party ads, fake program or system updates, unverified download sources, etc.
If you are careless, each of these tactics will work but neither of them is good enough to succeed if you pay attention. That’s what you must do. Always keep your guard up and don’t give into distraction and negligence. A little extra attention goes a long way and saves you tons of future issues.
