There’s no need to be constantly disturbed by Myedytaclub ads, page redirects, new tabs, and banners every time you open your web browser. If a browser hijacker called Myedytaclub has recently put you in that situation, on this page, you’ll learn how to save yourself from the invasion.
In the next lines, we’ve prepared a detailed removal guide with screenshots, and explanations on how to find and remove the ad-generating files. But we highly recommend that you read the information that follows before you do so. Not only will it give you a better understanding of exactly what browser hijackers can do, but also it will offer you a few tips on how to keep them away.
If you’re wondering why the advertisements are so irritating, you should understand they’re just put on your screen to gain revenue. Fortunately, this is not an illegal criminal scheme for quick cash. It is not the same as a Ransomware that blackmails you, or a Trojan that may try to drain your banking accounts. Instead, this revenue-earning method enables the developers of browser hijackers to gain some income from every click the displayed advertisements receive. That’s why they’ve programmed Myedytaclub to show as many of them as possible on your screen, and to even automatically redirect people to some pre-defined websites. ⠀

- Select it and click on End task
- Open the file location to delete Myedytaclub
- Access the Task Manager by pressing together the Ctrl + Alt + Del keys and then selecting Task Manager.
- Open Processes and there try to find a process with the name of the unwanted software. If you find it, select it with the right button of the mouse and click on the Open File Location option.
- If you don’t see a “Myedytaclub” process in the Task Manager, look for another suspicious process with an unusual name. It is likely that the unwanted process would be using lots of RAM and CPU so pay attention to the number of resources each process is using.
- Tip: If you think you have singled out the unwanted process but are not sure, it’s always a good idea to search for information about it on the Internet – this should give you a general idea if the process is a legitimate one from a regular program or from your OS or if it is indeed likely linked to the adware.
- If you find another suspicious process, open its File Location too.
- Once in the File Location folder for the suspicious process, start testing all of the files that are stored there by dragging them to our free online scanner available below.
- If the scanner finds malware in any of the files, return to the Processes tab in the Task Manager, select the suspected process, and then select the End Process option to quit it.
- Go back to the folder where the files of that process are located and delete all of the files that you are allowed to delete. If all files get deleted normally, exit the folder and delete that folder too. If one or more of the files showed an error message when you tried to delete them, leave them for now and return to try to delete them again once you’ve completed the rest of the guide.

Users who haven’t experienced this kind of activity before usually think they have been infected by a virus, but that’s not the case. It’s important to note that browser hijackers like Myedytaclub and Luckyday aren’t malicious programs–they don’t have damaging code in them, that can harm your system, nor can they replicate themselves and automatically get to other computers in the same network. And although they might really irritate you with their annoying advertisements, such programs certainly can’t encrypt your files as Ransomware infections can, so if you detect them on your PC, you don’t really need to get panicked. However, you always have the option to uninstall them if you don’t want to tolerate the irritating ad-generating activity.
Myedytaclub may affect all browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Edge, etc.), and change the homepage, place another search engine, or install a page-redirect service, which constantly redirects your searches to some unknown web sites full of ads, banners, and pop-up boxes. The program could also trigger some browsing-related disturbance such as screen-freezing, and lags, and thus discourage people from surfing the internet through that browser. Myedytaclub may even collect, and transmit data about the activity of the user back to its developers. Usually, this is done with the goal of optimizing the ads displayed according to the searches of the user, and increasing the chances of more people clicking on those ads. However, some users may consider this data collection as an invasion of their privacy, particularly when it is not really clear where this information is going, and how it is stored.
