High Performance Gate
High Performance Gate is a browser-redirecting app for Firefox and Chrome that takes over the settings of the browser and changes some of its elements without user approval. The goal of the changes made by High Performance Gate is to flood the browser with obstructive page-redirects and advertising messages.
If you can’t get rid of the ads that keep showing up on your screen while you are on the Internet and your ad-blocker isn’t helpful and also if the adverts seem to even get displayed on sites that don’t typically have a lot of advertising content, then you probably have a hijacker app like High Performance Gate inside your browser without even knowing it. If that’s the case, the good news is that you are at least not dealing with Ransomware or some nasty Trojan Horse infection. However, you will still need to eliminate the hijacker if you want to stop the nagging ads, page-redirects, banners and pop-ups.
Additional symptoms you may expect from Highperformancegate.com is changes to the default search engine service and to the address of your browser’s starting page. Normally, the Highperformancegate.com virus can be installed on Chrome, Firefox, Edge or any other popular browser.

What is High Performance Gate?
Even people who use Mac computers oftentimes report similar issues with their Safari browsers. All in all, the browser hijackers do not discriminate between the different browsers and are made to be as multi-compatible as possible. After all, the more computers and browsers they get installed on, the greater the effects of their advertising campaign would be, which would, in turn, greatly increase the profits from the displayed ads. And this, in fact, is the whole purpose of software pieces like High Performance Gate and Captcha Glow – to make as much money as possible by displaying Pay-Per-Click ads and by promoting the sites of their creators’ partners on a Pay-Per-Visit basis. The problem is that the end-users are the ones at whose expense this whole scheme is operating. And, needless to say, you wouldn’t really benefit much (if anything) from the activities of High Performance Gate or of any other hijacker. This is why, you may want to check out the guidelines in the uninstallation guide below that will allow you to easily remove the intrusive High Performance Gate.
Is High Performance Gate dangerous?
It can be easy to get tricked into clicking on the random ads – you may see something interesting or you may simply try to close them so that you can continue your browsing. In either case, however, you may risk getting your system exposed to different kinds of online hazards. The control over the origins of the adverts that a hijacker may spam on your screen is usually non-existent meaning that you may receive all sorts of sketchy and unreliable commercial messages on your screen. Therefore, if you don’t want to accidentally land even more unwanted apps or maybe even dangerous threats like Trojans, Rootkits and Ransomware, you are advise to take immediate actions towards eradicating the High Performance Gate hijacker and cleaning your browser from its ads and changes. By doing this, you will be making your computer safer and less likely to get exposed to different hazardous content that may compromise your system and cause further issues.
