Suddenly Yourwebing.com took over your homepage and you cannot remove it.
As a PC user, you probably have some preferences about your homepage and search engine to make your Internet experience a little bit better and overall a little bit more enjoyable. However, you should wave your favorite browser settings goodbye once Yourwebing.com has entered your computer. This is an incredibly aggressive browser hijacker which could be really tricky and difficult to remove. Even though it replaces your homepage and search engine with its own, Yourwebing.com doesn’t stop there. Get ready to be piled with advertisements, be regularly redirected to third-party websites and, unless you take adequate measure, eventually be infected with more viruses. Don’t waste time and get rid of this pesky infection as soon as possible.
How did I get infected with?
Yourwebing.com has its own website but there is no install option to be found there. That leaves us with the obvious answer to the question how the virus infiltrated your computer – behind your back. It’s nerve-racking enough having some program installed without your permission but knowing it might be malicious and very dangerous is a whole different story. You can get infected with Yourwebing.com while downloading any kind of freeware as most websites offer bundles of programs and the intruder usually gets included without your knowledge. Unless you pay some extra attention to the installation process and read carefully which part of the bundle is safe and which is questionable, you are exposing your PC to some great cyber dangers. Hackers stop at nothing to get you infected so you may have clicked a fake message or opened some spam email-attachment or even installed a bogus program update – Yourwebing.com is already into your operating system ready to cause chaos.
Why is this dangerous?
At first sight this program looks rather harmless. Yourwebing.com offers quick access to Facebook, Ebay, Yahoo and the whole thing looks legitimate enough for you to believe it’s just a useful search engine. Don’t be misled though; Yourwebing.com will soon manifest its real intentions and they have nothing to do with your online security and a lot to do with money. Once successfully installed (without you knowing it), the virus takes control over all your browsers making sure its malicious presence won’t remain unnoticed. The hijacker can easily affect Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer and modifies them without your permission. Yourwebing.com replaces both your search engine and your homepage with its own. Then it starts redirecting you. The problem with that, apart from the obvious fact you can never find what you’re searching for, is that the virus could lead you to some corrupted sponsored web pages. Hackers don’t care for your security; they get paid to give you access to those links. What happens to your PC from now on is no longer their concern. Keep in mind that you’re a click away from infecting your computer with viruses and it might soon turn out that Yourwebing.com is your smallest issue. In order to gain money, cyber criminals will also try to trick you into clicking some of the links open and if you manage to avoid them, hackers will only become more intrusive. Thanks to the hijacker’s presence on your PC, they can monitor your browsing history and use it to choose commercials that are attractive to you. Don’t fall into their trap and eliminate the virus before it causes some serious damage. Furthermore, the only way to restore your browsing setting is to delete Yourwebing.com. You can remove the hijacker completely following the instructions bellow.
