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

If there are ads and sudden page-redirects in your browser that are bothering you right now, there are basically two possible reasons why they are appearing on your screen. The first one is the sites you are visiting – as you likely know, most sites have ads in them that help their creators and owners earn income from their sites. The second potential reason for the appearance of the invasive advertising messages inside your Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Edge (or some other) browser is the presence of an adware or a browser hijacker app in the browsing program. These software categories are normally used as ad-generating tools that directly stream commercial messages inside the user’s browser regardless of what site the user is currently on. The difference between adware and hijackers is that the browser hijackers may also change your starting page, new-tab page, search engine, toolbar and other elements of the browser in order to make the ad-generation even more invasive and, in turn, more effective. After all, the whole idea of this aggressive advertising campaigns is to make the users interact with the advertisements which is the thing that earns money for the adware/browser hijacker owners.

Here, our focus will be an app named which a lot of users have made complaints about – this app is a typical browser hijacker as it is known to make unwanted changes in the browser as well as spam it with ads, pop-ups, page-redirect hyperlinks and other invasive content. Most users are displeased by this type of activities and want the hijacker removed. However, it may sometimes be a bit tricky to properly and fully uninstall and that is why we will give you a guide that will help you with the full removal of the annoying application:

Be careful with the different ads you may come across while the hijacker is still active in your machine

Although the browser hijacker apps are typically legal and non-harmful applications, they are still software pieces that tend to do something in your computer that you don’t want them to. In this case, this thing is the introduction of unwanted changes in the browser and the generation of random ads and page-redirects. This could, potentially, lead to some unwanted consequences such as the exposure to unsafe web addresses. In the worst case scenario, you may even get redirected to some phishing page or a malware-infested site with Trojans or Ransomware cryptoviruses in it. Naturally, the wise thing to do in order to prevent this from happening would be to uninstall, which is exactly the thing that we would advise you to do next. You really do not need an infection with some insidious Ransomware infection in your computer and due to this we believe that it is best to take this matter into your own hands and get rid of the invasive app when there is still enough time to do it. If you have any questions you’d like to ask us with regards to this unwanted hijacker, you can write us in the comments section and we will do our best to answer you in the most helpful way we can.
