How did I get infected with?

Firsts things first – how did that pesky intruder get to your computer? does have an official website but there’s no install option there. That fact alone should be your first red flag as most PC viruses apply that same strategy and completely leave the installation to underhanded techniques. Hackers have plenty of possibilities to infect you with their malicious creations – through spam messages, corrupted web links, fake program updates, etc. The biggest threat, however, are the so-called “bundles”. A bundle is a very convenient yet extremely dangerous download method which allows you to install an entire bundle of (mostly free) programs at once. PC users, however, often forget the countless dangers that exist in the cyber world. Unless you opt for the Advanced/Custom option in the Setup Wizard, you never know what “bonus” programs you might end up downloading in addition to the ones you originally wanted. Always be careful when it comes to freeware; you certainly don’t want to infect your own computer. Avoid suspicious web links and only install programs from their legitimate websites.

Why is this dangerous?

Any program that changes your browser settings without your permission can’t be safe. The virus affects the most common browsers (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox), so avoiding its consequences becomes rather impossible. The infection will not only mess with your browser, it will mess with your entire Internet activity. As the search tool the virus provides is for free, it is supported by third-party search results. That means you will be redirected to sponsored unknown websites and no ones could guarantee your safety there. Hackers aren’t exactly famous for their kindness and concern for PC users, so you could end up on a very dangerous website filled with parasites. Soon enough might be your smallest problem. Basically everything the virus display on your computer screen is not trustworthy – advertisements, discounts, offers, deals, updates… What hackers want from you is to help them generate traffic to their sponsored pages. Needless to say you should never do that. However harmless this program seems, keep in mind that this is not simply a search engine; this is a PC virus. It collects your browsing-related information so the hackers can sell it for marketing purposes. According to the official website, this program “may be modified, updated, upgraded, enhanced, fixed, disabled, enabled or discontinued at any time, automatically, and without further notice to you”. Of course, that includes random software update and random installations behind your back. Does it sound safe? If you want to regain control over you browser, to put an end to the unreliable search results and to prevent further damage, you have to get rid of the hijacker.
