Browser Hijackers Related Info:
When discussing browser hijackers, it is necessary to state that these redirects might affect your browser programs only, and usually have nothing to do with any malicious software versions in general.
-merely marketing oriented ones;
-all the modifications that these redirecting programs may result in could be justified by the fact that their designers are normally generously paid to advertise something – a website, a search engine, a software product, a homepage or various online services.
Such redirects are typically legal and could be seen as ad-related – Adware also represents this exact category.
What makes All in One Office different from any of the known malicious programs-
The standard virus versions: the programs based on Trojan or Ransomware code, are very likely to do something extremely harmful once installed on your PC. Some of them may encrypt your data, while others may delete certain files or format all your hard disks. For the purpose of eliminating the Ransomware viruses, you usually have to pay a ransom. In the case of a Trojan infection – the infection could be incredibly subtle and totally unnoticeable – you might never find out what the hackers behind the virus wanted from you.

With hijackers, things are different – All in One Office does not typically work like that. Often it might check your latest web searches and later on adjust the of ads it displays to your current tastes and interests. At first, that might seem somehow intrusive. Still, a research like this might turn out to be beneficial for you. Occasionally you might receive the best offers that you might like at first sight. However, some of the affected users consider a research into their interests like the one performed by any redirecting software quite invasive. Therefore, such webpage-redirecting software is often regarded as potentially unwanted.
Likely ways of ending up infected by All in One Office (and most of the other versions of hijackers):
You may come across a hijacker almost everywhere on the Internet (distributed as parts of torrents or components of web platforms). They could get spread via spam messages or fake ads too. The most common source is free file bundles you may download from the Internet. Precisely, most of the bundles consist of different programs that get spread as one. There, within the software bundle, might be games and interesting apps, Adware-based programs, hijackers and plenty of other types of applications.
Just keep in mind that simply downloading any bundle is NEVER the exact reason for any infection. The next passage explains thoroughly how to install bundles properly and spare yourself and your device the potential irritation that may come from such ad-generating pages like All in One Office.
How to install a program bundle in a wise way and NEVER get affected by any hijacker:
If you implement the instructions below, you may not be affected by All in One Office or any other page redirect like it. You will find the installation options inside the installation wizard when it is displayed. Simply look for the Advanced (oftentimes called Custom or Customized) feature. You should use this option only, when about to perform the installation process.
Ensure that you always stay away from all other installation features that are offered. They might have various names – Brief, Default, Automatic or Quick. Most of them are not good for your PC. In case you do use them, you may have no choice of what to leave behind and what to allow into your system. Consequently, you may face many infections.
Some more prevention tips:
- Avoid at least the most common sources of hijackers – shady sites, misleading web offers, unreliable software developers, etc.;
- Ensure that your operating system works well and is up-to-date. Make certain to install any updates manually and on a regular basis.;
- Strive to use a decent anti-virus software version. If you don’t have any, purchase one. Some of these programs could warn you about sources of ad-producing pages or ones that are suspicious and might represent danger.;
