Get Rid of/Remove (Start Search) Virus

What is Virus?

Like redirect virus and browser hijacker, is a malicious program that takes the place of default homepage and search engine without asking for any approval. This pesky program is able to enter the targeted computer through hacked websites and junk emails. After then, it first changes the system registry settings so that malware can be executed on Windows boot-up. After then, this unwanted program modifies original browser settings secretly. Whenever you open the web browser, this unknown page pops up on the screen. Besides, your favorite search provider will be replaced as well.

When you try to make searches as before, hijacker displays a lot of sponsored links other than useful search results. Meanwhile, any click on those links could be redirected to commercial or suspicious websites. Those pages contain numerous products and services to attract you. In some cases, virus generates many pop-up ads on the screen. All in all, it’s kindly advised to pay much attention and not click unknown links. Or the workstation would catch additional malware or even viruses. Apart from attacking the web browser, redirect virus will mess up the desktop with new icons. Besides, it drops useless files to system folders randomly. To stop such annoyances and prevent further chaos, it’s wise to remove virus as soon as possible. Virus will do much harm to the infected computer:

1) Virus alters important browser settings and takes over all web browsers.
2) Virus will replace default home page and search engine without any approval.
3) Virus may mislead the victim into downloading additional harmful PC viruses.
4) Virus keeps track of online activities and collects confidential information.
5) Virus displays a lot of annoying and unwanted ads and sponsored search results.
6) Virus redirects the victim into unknown web page frequently to promote unworthy products.
7) Virus makes the system crash frequently and causes the slow network speed.
