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

The reason why our page is among the ones you are interested in is the fact that you have probably realized your computer has been infected with Intenetloading. We have prepared the following article with the desire to help every single user affected by this program. As a result we have discussed every single aspect of this software: characteristic features, possible negative effects and prevention and removal tips.

Intenetloading is…

This program is a part of the browser hijacker family. As such, it possesses and shows all the typical features that correspond to every browser hijacker. Such characteristics are the ability of the program to alter your browser settings. Consequently, your browser ends up redirecting you to unfamiliar websites, showing a lot of irritating ads or even with an entire new homepage, different from the one you have set.

So, are we talking about a virus here?

Despite having some quite questionable features as the ones explained above, is not a malicious program. What malware can do is to destroy your files, lock up certain files, blackmail you for money or even spy on your credentials, keystrokes or even on you personally by turning on your webcam. What browser hijackers typically do has nothing to do with such virus activities. Nonetheless, we would like to mention some more characteristics of Intenetloading that you might find more disturbing and intrusive. First of all, such a feature could be the fact that sometimes Intenetloading may be able to do research on your tastes based on the surfing history of your browser. That is why the pop-ups, banners and box ads that you see might be promoting only the services or the products you have been looking for recently. Another possible problem that might come from this hijacker is the fact that it might program your browser to redirect you to pages with possibly suspicious content (even the presence of Ransomware has been mentioned).

One of the most important differences between a browser hijacker and any virus is that the virus enters your PC by itself, having no permission. Intenetloading does not do that because it is not capable of self-replicating or self-infiltrating any system. The affected users are the ones who let it in. Typically, hijackers travel inside program bundles. Such bundles get spread for free and are legal. They represent mixtures of hijackers, Adware and other types of software. They are created because their developers are excited given the prospect of being paid for distributing ad-generating software. The payment usually comes from the displayed-to-be ads. That’s why this PPC practice is legitimate, it is just marketing. However, let’s pay attention to the way the innocent users let in their computers. When they download such a bundle, they probably want only a part of its content to get installed on their PCs. Nevertheless, they are not aware of the whole content of the software bundle, so some of them might choose the improper installation method: by selecting the Automatic/ Default/ Quick way of installing such a software combo. If this is the case, then the hijacker gets unknowing permission to get integrated into the computer’s system and after that you already know what it does.

In case you desire to keep your PC free of any issues such as the one you are currently facing, you need to master the implementation of a perfect installation. Such can only happen when you select the proper method from the list of the installation wizard. The good features are Advanced/ Custom or Customized. By choosing such a step, you minimize the chance of your computer to catching all sorts of hijackers, Adware and even malware like Ransomware.
