Suddenly took over your homepage and you cannot remove it.

Do you know how to tell whether your computer has been infected with a browser hijacker? Well, for one thing, the default search engine and the default homepage that you prefer don’t seem to be around anymore. Instead, all you see every single time you try to browse the Web is the parasite’s domain that successfully took over the PC and destroyed your entire Internet experience. To put it short, hijackers are nasty. is a classic member of this malicious cyber family so it’s more than capable to create a mess once it manages to get on board. One important thing you should know is that this sneaky virus not only takes control over your browsers and is insolent enough to do so without your consent but it also hides a rich assortment of dangers. The infection keeps track on your online activities and steals about as much personal data as it possibly could; it also serves as a back door to other types of malware and top it all, causes the PC to work so incredibly slowly that the machine is practically unusable. There isn’t one beneficial feature concerning this program so the best piece of advice we could give you is to get rid of it as soon as possible. Even though the official website appears to be rather safe, every attempt to use the search engine it provides, ends in failure. The only thing you will get out of this program is the useless text “We apologize for the inconvenience, but we weren’t able to find results for this query”. That same story will continue after you install the parasite and it’s obvious that your browsing activities will not remain the way they used to be. Need any more reasons to delete this sly infection?


How did I get infected with?

This is quite a difficult question to answer. Unfortunately, hackers nowadays have way more opportunities than they need when it comes to spreading parasites online. Not only do crooks keep applying some of their oldest tricks (like spam messages and spam email-attachments) but the also constantly enrich the list of things you should be worried about when you surf the Web. Always keep an eye out for potential threats because a parasite’s potential gets unleashed very fast and once it does, you’re in trouble. You should be especially careful when you install software. Why? Because software bundles are currently the easiest, quickest and most effective way to get your machine compromised. You might be tempted to install some free software every now and then but keep in mind that this could be the exact moment when you let a parasite in as well. That is why it’s highly recommended to opt for the Custom or Advanced option in the Setup Wizard instead of the Basic one. Don’t hesitate to deselect what you don’t want installed and don’t overlook the installation process. No threat is to be underestimated in the world of cyber pests and it’s your responsibility to protect the machine in front of you as well as your own privacy.

Why is this dangerous?

No threat is to be underestimated, remember? Hijackers in general are quite problematic so gives you no reason whatsoever to trust it. As we mentioned before, the first thing this parasite does is replace your favorite search engine and default homepage with its own malicious domain. Let’s repeat once again – the hijacker couldn’t care less for your preferences and opinions on the upcoming browser settings changes. Being perfectly compatible with all the most commonly used browser out there, the virus affects Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer in no time. Then it starts redirecting you. Now, the problem here isn’t the fact that got installed behind your back, nor even the fact that it automatically modified your browsers. The biggest issue is that the parasite generates extremely unreliable search results that might end up installing malware on your already compromised machine thus causing you a much greater headache. All web links displayed by lead to sponsored web pages and even if they don’t turn out to be corrupted, they will definitely not be of use. Apart from the obvious fact that you will no longer be able to find what you’re searching for on the Web, you will have to constantly be aware that you’re one click away from more infections. And that is not a comfortable feeling. All additional software updates, product discounts, various pop-up ads and whatever other trickery the hijacker has in store MUST be avoided as well. This parasite is unpredictable and quite resourceful so you have to remain cautious til the very moment you get rid of it. Hijackers also have the habit of stealing IP addresses, email-addresses, search queries, pages visited and even some personally-identifiable data. It goes without saying that this whole thing may (and probably will) end very badly for you and your privacy that is no longer private. Don’t provide the hijacker additional weapons against you, it has enough of those already. If you want to regain control over your cyber life and delete the sneaky hijacker, follow the removal guide you will find down below.
