Virus is a browser-rerouting add-on that can be installed on Firefox, Chrome, and Edge and will force the affected browser to automatically page-redirect the user’s searches. will also modify the search engine and replace the addresses of the homepage and new-tab page.

The Virus will display pop up ads and messages

This purpose of and other potentially unwanted apps like Web Navigator Browser, is simple – this app, known as a browser hijacker, is used for making money through Pay-Per-Click online ads and Pay-Per-View redirects to promoted sites. Each user click or visit to a site promoted by the hijacker is rewarded by a small commission, paid by the people whose content is getting advertised. All the unwanted and unauthorized changes that would make inside your browser are there to facilitate the advertising process by making your browser more susceptible and predisposed to the continuous generation of obstructive pop-up adverts, page-redirect links, screen-wide banners, misleading box messages, download requests, and more.

Obviously, all of this would quickly make using your main browser rather difficult because you wouldn’t be able to reach the web content that you are interested in without first going through a wall of advertising materials. However, this isn’t even the biggest problem when talking about apps of the browser-hijacking type. What’s even worse about software such as is that it can be hazardous to the security of your PC. This app is not meant to damage or compromise your computer but its uncontrolled ad-generation and the sudden site-redirects that it continuously tries to subject you to can be potentially dangerous if they are linked to unsafe sites and web content. It is widely-known that not all ads on the Internet are ones that you should click on but when there’s a browser hijacker inside of your browser it could be particularly difficult to avoid interacting with the different types of promotional content that gets shown on your screen during each browsing session. Unfortunately, all that it takes for your PC to get targeted by a harmful Trojan, a sneaky Spyware, or a file-attacking Ransomware cryptovirus is oftentimes a single click on the wrong download button or web ad. And since you cannot know what is behind all of the ads displayed by, the best thing you could do for the safety of your computer is to uninstall the browser hijacker.


Obviously, the longer this app stays on the computers of users like you, the greater the revenue that its creators would earn from it. This explains why could be rather difficult to uninstall – this is an intentional feature of its programming. However, if you try the guide that you will find just below this article, we believe that you should have no issues fully removing the unpleasant app. Just remember that it is best to do this sooner rather than later because your system’s security may depend on you uninstalling the hijacker. There is no need to risk landing some malicious Ransomware extortion virus, a Trojan Horse capable of taking over your computer, or some other hazardous malware threat and the way to eliminate that risk is by uninstalling the browser hijacker that’s currently attached to yoru main browser.
