What’s happening? 

This is the question everyone starts to ask when their PC starts to act abnormally.  The digital age we live in have given permission to objects and gadgets to take over most of what used to be performed and/or made by humans. This assist various unsavory individuals, as they advantage of our tech-savvy ignorance of computers, programs,etc. and attack us. They are like psychologists because they can read our thoughts and pre-determine our actions when it comes down to presence in the cyber space. They attack us through spreading viruses, malware, and all kinds of other cyber threats. Years ago there was only one predominant type of malware – the computer virus. Back in those days many of the viruses were pranks created by people who did it only for the fun. Now computer threats have turned into a money-making business of a huge scale. The word “virus” itself is not clear enough definition because there are many things that fit or are similar to this definition and it will potentially mess up your computer.

Another sign of EasyDialSearch is the possibility of a “browser hijack”. The word “hijack” is not used by mistake because it’s exactly what occurs: you are performing work on your computer and unexpectedly random websites or tabs begin to open, or additional portals without you allowing it. The content these webpages have might not even make sense at times. This is a strong warning that the malware has definitely gotten into your computer and needs your prompt consideration  to be removed. These redirects and page openings will continue until you manage to remove the Adware.

    We would advise you don’t meddle with this one. Anything else suspicious?

    Hi Boris,

    You should most def remove these IPs from your hosts file.

  • HowToRemove.Guide Team

    Hi Atta,

    All these IPs are connected to known chinese spam sites. Delete them from the file.

    If you experience any problems with permission rights do the following:

    Search for Notepad in Windows search -> right click on the executable and select Run as Administrator.
    From inside Notepad click on the File-> Open menu and navigate to the hosts file

    You should now be able to save the file properly.

    Hi Carmen, ordinary programs do not typically install folders with such names, but there is no way for me to tell you for certain. Try downloading Spyhunter and run a scan – its free. It should tell you both if these files contain dangerous strings and where to look for the virus,

    These must be a part of a cracked malwarebytes version 😀 (Don’t worry, I’m not gonna give you problems for this). These IPs are safe. Leave them as is.

  • HowToRemove.Guide Team

    Delete all of these, they are part of the hijacker
