What starts off as not a particularly disturbing infection may soon turn into utter chaos all over your machine so our advice here is to waste no time and get rid of as soon as yo detect its sly presence. If you don’t appreciate being offhandedly manipulated by a virus, and we assume that you don’t, you truly have no reason to keep it on board. What exactly does a browser hijacker do? Well, it hijacks browsers. The good news is that gets activated almost immediately so at least you are not going to spend too much time wondering what’s wrong with you computer. However, the good news concerning this hijacker pretty much end here. Looking at’s official website may get you the wrong impression that this is a decent and nice search engine but don’t be fooled. There is nothing nice about cyber infections. First of all, the website doesn’t offer a download button which is a classic sign of something malicious. Secondly, according to the Privacy Policy of, the hijacker MAY collect some of your personal data which means it WILL steal about as much information as it possibly could. The hijacker also modifies your search results and constantly redirects you to some unknown websites that apart from being irrelevant to your queries, might be corrupted as well. Is it worth dealing with’s shenanigans on a daily basis? All you need to do is remove the parasite. And it’s in your best interest to do it fast.


How did I get infected with?

Is this the most intrusive question in your head right now? If not, it should be. In order to prevent future threats of this kind, you have to know what you did wrong this time. Now, although it’s rather hard to tell precisely how the hijacker got to you, there are some extremely popular infiltration methods in the world of cyber parasites. Hackers never stop working on new techniques but you have to keep in mind that the old ones are still as efficient as always. Take spam messages/email for example. If you ended up infected with the virus, you might have clicked some of those open and that simple action was more than enough for the hijacker to get installed. Do you see how effortless it is to download a virus? All you need is one careless click. Voila. Another effective distribution method is freeware bundling. Again, all it takes is a single moment of distractions and negligence to let all types of parasites enter your PC. That is why it’s highly recommended to select the Custom or Advanced option in the Setup Wizard because this way you remain entirely in control of the installation process and decide which program is reliable enough to be downloaded. It’s either you or cyber criminals who make that decision. It better be you. One more rule of thumb for the future – make sure you go through the Terms and Conditions of what you install unless you’re willing to accept some devious term or condition that will cause you a great headache later on. Remember, you can never be too careful when browsing the Web.

Why is this dangerous?

Why would you think that a nasty hijacker could be safe? It isn’t. The first thing does after its successful infiltration is to replace your default homepage and search engine with its own domain. You don’t get to say whether you like the upcoming changes in the browser settings or not. The virus makes them anyway. As you can see, this is quite a rude intrusion but the hijacker’s manipulations go much, much further. Once it has affected Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer, the parasite starts redirecting you. Get ready to be seeing completely random search results that may have nothing to do with what you’re actually searching for. Of course, hackers don’t care about your browsing experience. They care for money. Every web link the hijacker displays is sponsored and it could easily be corrupted so you CANNOT trust absolutely anything on your PC screen after the machine has been compromised. In addition, the personal data that sneakily steals might end up in the wrong hands and you don’t want to know all the possible scenarios that this may lead to. Trust us on one thing though – the fact that crooks have access to your passwords, usernames, email-addresses and even your browsing history can’t end well for you in any of these scenarios. It goes without saying that due to the parasite’s malicious presence, your computer speed will be deeply affected as well so every task will inevitably take much longer to accomplish that it should. Have you had enough with’s trickery? Then hesitate no more and do yourself a favor. You could either delete the hijacker automatically or manually and if you decide to remove the pest yourself, please follow the instructions below.
