Malicious Domain Request
The Malicious Domain Request Malware

If you are wondering how you may have ended up with this strange application on your computer, you should know that Malicious Domain Request may get added to your main browser Chrome, Firefox, Explorer or another) if you perform a careless installation of an installation bundle which contains the unwanted software. Once installed, the application is really easy to spot. It typically introduces some changes to the main homepage or search engine of the browser and it may also add some new tools, buttons automatic page-redirect services and toolbars to your browser. As a typical browser hijacker, Malicious Domain Request “Malware” may start launching different aggressive marketing campaigns which are used to generate advertising revenue via pay-per-click ads. For this reason, the application may generate tons of sponsored commercials that may appear in the form of text links, banners, pop-up ads and more. These ads are not intended to cause harm or to infect you with nasty viruses. However, our team usually recommends being careful with the commercial suggestions generated by the hijacker even if they look attractive and legitimate. The reason is, such randomly displayed pop-up ads and links may make you visit certain web pages that, unfortunately, may be both unreliable and unsafe. To avoid this risk and to stay away from potential carriers of Ransomware, Spyware and other nasty viruses, we advise you to avoid the content provided by this software app. If you have already become forced to deal with such misleading adverts, have been getting redirected to unfamiliar sites, or have been experiencing slowdowns in the computer’s performance due to this hijacker, it is best to remove Malicious Domain Request and uninstall its components with the help of the instructions and the removal tool that you can find below.

How can Malicious Domain Request hijack my browser?

As we mentioned above, the infection with a browser hijacker is directly related to the users’ careless installation of software packages. Such programs may often be included as “free” or “bonus” components in other free software installers, such as browser add-ons, PDF readers and editors, media players, optimization tools and more. That’s why, if you want to protect yourself from getting such potentially unwanted programs in the future, you should be more careful when installing free software. Always choose the Advanced or Custom option that is more extensive than the Quick or Basic installation. This will allow you to view and uncheck all of the added apps that are “optional”. To do this, you must go through the entire installation process step-by-step and remove the checkmarks that are enabled by default.

Since you are on this page, you most probably have skipped these settings in a certain installer and have already ended up with Malicious Domain Request on your PC. In this case, it is recommended to remove the browser hijacker and revoke its imposed settings in your browser with the help of the instructions provided in the guide above.
