Technet Search “Virus” is a new page-redirecting app which can easily take over the main browser in your system and force it to display various ads, pop-ups, colorful banners and open new tabs and page-redirect you during your web browsing sessions. The invasive app in question is a new software piece of the browser hijacker category and can integrate with popular browsers like Safari, Chrome, Firefox or Opera in order to make changes to their settings and to initiate automatic page-redirects to the sites of its partners. If you have Technet Search on your system, you may notice that the search engine or the homepage of your default browser may have been replaced with some unfamiliar ones and that some new toolbars and buttons might have been added to the browser without your approval. In addition to that, you may notice that every time you search for something, dozens of ads tend to pop-up on your screen, prompting you to click on their offers and promotions. All in all, this browser hijacker has the ability to take control over your online activities and disturb your browsing experience in a very unpleasant way.
Fortunately, Technet Search “Virus” isn’t some highly risky piece of malware (like a Trojan or a Ransomware) and it’s also not some nasty virus which can corrupt your PC or initiate some criminal activities. Usually, everything that a browser hijacker does is entirely advertising-related and is not intended to cause you harm. Yet, you may want to remove such apps from your system and uninstall the imposed changes if you want to browse the web in peace again.
In order to effectively deal with Technet Search, however, you may need to go through some specific removal steps. The representatives of the browser hijacker category typically cannot be uninstalled in the way that most normal programs can and, therefore, we have prepared a special removal guide with exact instructions for removing an app like this one.
Technet Search “Virus” is mainly distributed along with freeware programs by third-party developers. Apart from this, such software can also find its way into your computer with the help of spam email attachments, free downloads, torrents, automatic software updates, shareware and many others. Most often, you may find the browser hijacker bundled with some free app. In order to see if anything has been bundled with a given installer, however, you may need to carefully read the EULA and the options under the advanced/custom setup menu because such apps are typically promoted as “bonus” or “recommended” installs added to the main program. And if you don’t disable them manually, they may become part of your system by default along with the program that you install.
Once installed in the system, the browser hijacker may become a source of hundreds of potentially unwanted commercials as well as make changes to the main browser and cause obstructive redirects. In addition, such software may cause your system to be sluggish and trigger browser unresponsiveness and screen freezing because it can consume a fair share of the RAM and CPU resources for its ad-generating and page-redirecting activities. Generally, a piece of software like Technet Search may redirect the users to random web addresses in order to draw traffic for the sites of its partners. However, at the same time, it may increase the risk of landing on something malicious such as a hidden Trojan Horse or a Ransomware transmitter. Therefore, we usually recommend that our readers remove such software from their computers in order to avoid any unpleasant encounters with potential security hazards.
