Remove Virus from IE/Firefox/Chrome

I have no idea why my homepage has changed into the website. I don’t know it at all. Numerous annoying ads keep popping up on my screen. My search results are blocked up and always redirected to various strange websites. My computer is messed up now due to the annoying pop-ups and URL redirects. Is there a browser hijacker on my computer?

What is Virus? Virus is identified as a bothersome browser hijacker which pretends to be a regular search site but actually is a malicious domain. This pesky hijacker virus is capable of redirecting computer users’ search results to all sorts of its promoted websites and damages users’ web browsing experiences terribly. This virus doesn’t come alone, and it always comes bundled with Trojans, spyware, adware and other harmful virus. These dangerous threats will anchor themselves deeply in the affected system and make it hard for antivirus software to remove them. After your computer gets infected with virus, your favourite homepage and default search engine will be replaced with without your permission. Whenever you are browsing some regular websites, a large number of commercial ads and shopping information will automatically pop up one after another, which show you a lot of false messages and cheat you into paying for bogus products and providing your financial details. From the appearance of virus, it seems to an ordinary and legitimate webpage like Google and Yahoo, but in fact, this bogus website contains a bunch of irksome computer threats which have been deliberately injected by cyber criminals in order to bring sever damages to the infected computers. Virus Screenshot: Virus will do much harm to the infected computer:

1) Virus changes your homepage and search engine randomly without your permission.
2) Virus severely slows down your computer and causes the system to crash.
3) Virus introduces many other risky viruses and malware into your computer.
4) Virus displays tons of annoying pop-up ads whenever you are browsing the web.
5) Virus makes you suffer from a series of unwanted redirection problems.

7) Virus escapes from antivirus software' s detection and avoids being removed.
