I wrote this article to help you remove Top9blog.com. This Top9blog.com removal guide works for Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer.
Seeing the Top9blog.com page all the time when you surf the Web is bad news. This site`s constant appearance means that you have a browser hijacker on board. The pest is using the page to lurk behind. It uses it as a shield, if you will. But you should take Top9blog.com as a big neon warning sing. As soon as you spot it taking over, accept that fact that you have a parasite on board and take immediate actions. Hijackers are dangerous and incredibly annoying. They do not only ruin your online activities and expose you to malware risk, but they also jeopardize your privacy.
This tool starts spying on you from the moment it enters. It is programmed this way. So, it collects every bit of personal data it can find (IPs, email addresses, usernames, passwords, browser-related information, financial and personally identifiable credentials, etc.) and then it sends everything to the crooks who published it. You know what this means, don’t you? These cybercriminals will use this information for nothing but for their malicious purposes. Or, they could sell it to third parties. Believe us, there will be many interested buyers. Either way, this won`t end well for you. This is why you must take action. Find where the hijacker is lurking on your PC and delete it without hesitation. Otherwise, you will regret not having done so.
Your browsing changes immediately after the hijacker enters. Every time you open one of your browsers you get interrupted. For starters, the Top9blog.com page becomes your online shadow. You see it all the time. Of course, you are forced to see many other shady pages as well. It`s just that Top9blog.com is hackers` favorite. It even replaces your homepage and search engine without any permission of yours. The hijackers neither needs nor asks for your consent. Aside from that, you are also flooded with a never-ending pile of incredibly annoying commercials which cover your whole screen 24/7. You are simply unable to get any work done under such conditions. Your online activities turn into a nightmare. Also, you are always a single click away from more infections. Nothing the hijacker throws at you can be trusted.
In fact, one accidental click on the wrong link/ad and you compromise your already compromised PC by download more pests on board. The ads you are bombarded with can easily lead you to pages brimming with malware. Or, they can conceal malware themselves. Either way, you cannot surf the Web normally anymore as if you do, you risk inviting more parasites on board. This is the last thing you need. This hijacker is more than enough. Aside from all the above-mentioned issues, the threat also slows down your computer. It causes it to crash frequently. Your browser freeze due to the ad bombardment. Even your Internet connection may become unstable. Don’t put up with all of this. It is not worth it. Instead, use our removal guide and get rid of this pest for good.
How to protect yourself in the future?
Infections like these rely on tricks to enter your machine but, most importantly, they pray for your carelessness and distractions. See, the hijacker needs your approval on its installments but it doesn’t ask for it straightforward. Of course, not. It asks in the sneakiest way possible. For example, it uses spam emails and their attachments. Or freeware and fake updates. The methods are many but none of them would work without your negligence. If you want to keep your PC infection-free you have to pay more attention to what you are saying “yes” to. Don’t rush. Take the time to read the Terms and Conditions/EULA. Forget about the “next/next/finish” tactic. Don’t open/click on everything that comes your way without thinking twice about it. Understand this: negligence leads to infections. Vigilance protects you from them. Make the right choice. Everything is up to you.
