Doseofhealthy.com, once in your system, attacks your browser first. This will be the first sign for you to realize something is not right. You will see some modifications in your browser setting, which you have not given your permission for. For example, both your homepage and search engine will be replaced with Doseofhealthy.com`s domain. From the moment on, you can consider your previously trustworthy browser as unreliable and even dangerous. The new search engine you are stuck with generates only sponsored link. In this care, sponsored equals harmful. Most of these links will, if clicked on, will lead you straight to a website full of malware. Then, you will be in s great position to infect your already infected PC even more.

You will also be constantly redirected to various pages, some of which pose a huge risk as well. And of course, the ads. Never-ending, irritating, nasty pop-up ads and commercials will appear on your screen all the time. You open a page, they are there. You open another page, you get redirected to another shady one. Moreover, as a result from all these interruptions your PC speed will slow down significantly and it will start freeing a lot more often. This is absolutely not a situation in which you can use your browser at its best. You will have to watch each your step no to accidentally click on an ad or a link. This is not only unacceptable but also quite impossible. You will always be at risk unless you find and delete the pest. When you add to these problems the above-mentioned security risk, you absolutely have no reason to hesitate. Get rid of the hijacker. To do so, please, follow our removal instructions below.

Now, you must be wondering how you got infected. You don’t remember downloading such a plague on your PC. That’s not surprising at all considering the fact that these infections use every single trick in the book to fool you. The need your permission, this is a fact, but they don’t need your active assistance. Your carelessness is enough. They hide in freeware/shareware bundles and when you get whose you get an intruder as well. Especially if you use illegitimate sites as sources and you don’t take the time to opt for the Advanced settings. That’s how you got stuck with this pest.

The Advanced settings take more time but they also let you be in control of the whole installation process and terminated it immediately if you spot an intruder trying to slither in. The same goes for the Terms and Conditions, which most of the users skip without thinking twice about it. Third-party pop-ups and illegitimate pages also pose a risk hence should be avoided. Sometimes, hijackers pretend to be a fake program update as well. At last but not least, don’t forget about spam messages because crooks obviously haven`t and they are still using that method. Being careful and not rushing anything will increase your chances at spotting and infection before having entered. This is much easier than trying to remove it once it`s already in your system.
