Biaoji “Virus”


This page aims to help you remove Biaoji “Virus”. These Biaoji “Virus” removal instructions work for Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer, as well as every version of Windows.

Browser hijackers represent a software category, in which the programs may infect and affect all of the browsers on your PC, even the most popular and widely-used ones such as Firefox, Chrome, Explorer and Opera. Following that, any hijacker could inflict a number of possibly irritating modifications – your default homepages/ search engines might get substituted; a great number of ads {pop-ups/banners mostly} could start covering your browser apps’ windows and tabs. What’s even more annoying: your browsers might launch many redirection processes and take you to web pages you hadn’t had the idea of visiting. Biaoji “Virus” – the particular hijacker, described in the following paragraphs, is a typical representative of this annoying software family.

The typical way of ending up bothered by a Biaoji “Virus”-caused infection:

Precisely speaking, almost all the known Internet content could be used as a means of spreading hijackers. The possible distribution methods could greatly vary. You may catch such a program from contaminated websites, infected torrents, drive-by downloads, browser add-ons and extensions, spam, etc. In spite of the big number of potential hijackers carriers, none of them can be blamed for all of the recorded infections. However, the particular source, which results in the majority of infections with this type of programs is the sets of free software known as a “bundles”. Such bundles are, in fact, plenty of various apps, games and programs, spread as a whole for free on the web. It’s true that some of these bundles could appear to be awfully appealing, because they may contain some new or usually paid program versions; fascinating games, etc. Normally, any bundle also contains a version of an ad-generating program – either an Adware or a hijacker. Also, it is essential that you remember that no bundle could infect your system alone – they have no such features. Below you will see how an infection may occur and the possible ways to avoid it.

How an infection could take place:

Any contamination caused by a hijacker might only happen in case the circumstances we have discussed below are present: 

  • Only under the circumstance that you install a program bundle with the help of the ‘improper’ installer option. All the features available to you, which do not contain info about the content of the particular bundle you are installing, are exactly the ones to be avoided. Usually their names are: the Quick; the Recommended, the Default and/or the Easy ones.
  • To make sure your PC remains healthy and stable, it is essential that you choose the Advanced or the Custom installation options (as those features indeed ensure a customized installation process, during which you can really select (or opt out of) the available programs or features of a bundle (or any given program you are installing).

Could anything relate browser hijackers to any malicious program?

Surprisingly enough, no program from this category has ever been officially classified as dangerous; simply most of the hijackers we are aware of have been identified as potentially unwanted. The programs that are indeed malicious normally possess some extremely hazardous features and can seriously damage your system and your privacy and safety as an individual. Their effects could involve: crashing the whole computer system; formatting, corrupting, or even robbing you of your files, folders, programs or account information. Luckily, Biaoji “Virus” is completely INCAPABLE OF CAUSING SUCH TROUBLE. If there could be an exact definition of all hijackers, it will sound like that: all such products are marketing-oriented and have one simple purpose: to promote websites, homepages; search engines; and/or different services/ products in a legitimate way.

Nevertheless, why could Biaoji “Virus” and the other hijackers be referred to as potentially unwanted?

Quite as expected, hijackers are not 100% harmless and simple. Actually, some of them may have unexplained and somewhat suspicious features, which might result in great annoyance. For example, the substitution of your typical search engines {or homepages} could seriously disturb you. However, such slight changes might only show their advertising nature. Furthermore, the possible redirecting to websites you haven’t commanded the browser to display may indeed appear even more irritating. There is one more quite intrusive effect of many hijackers. Nearly all ad-causing programs could exploit your browser apps records in order to enhance their promotion campaigns. What could happen is that the data about your current search requests made while using your browsers may be used by the hijacker creators in order to design an algorithm, which can be later be used to guess your specific surfing preferences. Consequently, only ads which may appear interesting to you get displayed.
