– How to remove?

I did not have an honor to encounter on my own, but I know quite a few people who were really frustrated about this search engine taking over their browsers. Let me rephrase it here – this BROWSER HIJACKER taking over their browsers. At first glance looks like a decent search engine, but in reality when your browser default home page gets changed to, it means that your system is compromised. I think it goes without saying that it is important to remove immediately, otherwise there will be consequences.

Perhaps such statement may sound too far-fetched, but the truth is that such browser hijackers as are often exploited by hackers and cyber criminals for malware distribution. In a way, this search engine cannot “do” anything wrong by itself. The main problem is that can really be used to redirect users to third party associated websites. Some of these websites may require information about your browsing session for marketing purposes, some may need to increase their traffic to generate more money, and some could be hosting malware, simply waiting for you to land on a website and get infected with dangerous threats. I suppose you definitely would not want for that to happen. Therefore, the best way to protect your computer from danger is to remove immediately. If you think that you may have seen somewhere before, you are almost right. This browser hijacker is directly related to such infections as PortaldoSites, Delta-Homes or Qone8. All of these infections are known to enter the target system surreptitiously. It means that neither nor any other similar browser hijacker informs you about the oncoming installation or the browser modifications.

The catch in this is that even though gets installed without user’s permission, the user himself/herself is usually the one to TRIGGER the installation. Now, how does that happen? Simple – is distributed with shareware programs. For example, there are tons of websites that hosts freeware, and you can download various software applications free of charge, be it a video player, a shareware game, or any other kind of piece of software. The problem is that quite often the installation file downloaded from third party websites carries more than one application. may also come bundled with these shareware programs and unlike other browser plugins that inform users about the oncoming changes (although users often overlook it), the browser hijacker does nothing of the sort. This allows us to make at least one conclusion – in order to protect ourselves from such infections and even more dangerous threats we must ALWAYS download programs ONLY from official websites. Even though it may not be a shareware program’s intention, the application you install may get exploited by a malicious third party and then you would be in serious trouble. itself is rather tricky to remove manually, because the browser hijacker tries to remain in your system for as long as possible. If you may use of its search engine, it will redirect you to a number of affiliated websites, which would obviously expose you to a variety of security threats. Then you may be flooded with commercial pop-up advertisements that, for one, slow down your browser, and two – expose you to potentially malicious content as well. Having on your computer basically means that you are not in full control of your browser. In the long run it can result in a serious infection, because if gets exploited, it would allow cyber criminals to make use of your system’s vulnerabilities and then completely cripple your PC’s system, or even worse – steal your money.

Therefore, users are strongly recommended to invest in a computer security application that is powerful enough to remove and other similar applications. I will provide manual removal instructions below, but it is always a good idea to run a full system scan afterwards, to make sure that you have really taken care of the infection.
