As we said, this malicious domain even replaces your homepage and search engine. From now on, all search results that you are shown cannot be trusted. They may appear to be provided by a well-known, sage engine but they are not. In fact, most of them are corrupted and dangerous. The problem is that you cannot tell which link is safe and which is not unless you click. But, keep in mind that if you click on the wrong one, there will be consequences.

The Virus

A single click on a compromised link is all it takes for you to download more infections on your machine. You are always one click away from malware. Needless to say, this makes the process of using your machine and getting work done on the Internet much harder. And this is not all. The hijacker also floods you with tons of commercials which are just as dangerous as the search results. The ads appear on every page you attempt to visit, popping and blocking content.

Do not click on anything. These advertisements are only used by crooks to gain profit via the pay-per-click method. This means that you will be not only jeopardizing your safety but you will also be sponsoring crooks. Stay away from everything generated by this hijacker unless you want to make your already bad predicament worse. Delete the infection ASAP. All it brings you is unpleasantness. Not no mention that the pest is able to spy on your and collect personal information which then sends to hackers. Don’t hesitate. Use our removal guide below and get rid of for good.

However, how did you get stuck with this nasty parasite? We assume you didn’t download it on purpose. Of course, not. But you did something else to help it infect you. Hijackers rely on trickery and deceit to dupe you into giving them your permission on their installment. One of the most popular methods is freeware bundling. Crooks attach the pest to another free program and when you download said program without paying attention, you get the malicious additional one as well.

To prevent this from happening, always opt for the Custom settings in the Setup Wizard instead of the Basic ones. This way, you will be able to see the entire bundle program by program as well as to decide which program stays and which one goes. Also, don’t skip the Terms and Conditions as they may also include some misleading clauses. Your vigilance is what keeps your machine infection-free. Don’t throw it to the wind. Uninstall
