If you’re experiencing unexpected changes in your web browser, like being taken to a site called Yonminuner without wanting to, this guide is for you. Yonminuner itself is a website that’s usually safe if you meant to go there. But if you’re being sent there without asking, a browser hijacker might be messing with your web browser. This potentially unwanted software changes your browser settings to make money through ads or by sending you to specific websites. It’s not as harmful as the worst internet threats, but still needs to be taken seriously because it can slow down your browsing and put your personal information at risk. We’ll show you how to get rid of this hijacker and keep your online browsing safe.

The Yonminuner.com browser hijacker website.
Is Yonminuner safe?

Even though the Yonminuner browser hijacker doesn’t seem as scary as other cyber dangers, such as ransomware or Trojans, it’s still risky. It changes how you browse the web, can take your private browsing info, and send you to unsafe or fake websites. This could put your online safety in danger which is why this software should best be uninstalled from the system.

The Yonminuner Virus

When people talk about the “Yonminuner virus,” they might be a bit confused. There’s a big difference between real viruses, which can copy themselves and mess up your computer, and browser hijackers like Toapodazoay, Gluxouvauure.com, or the one we are talking about on this page. This piece of software doesn’t have the capacity to damage your files or corrupt your software, but it tries to get you to visit certain websites or see certain ads to make money. Even though this activity is not aimed at destroying your computer, it’s still a good idea to remove Yonminuner to keep things running smoothly and to avoid a potential exposure to web content that could infect you with real malware.

What is Yonminuner?

Yonminuner is a browser hijacker known for its aggressive sponsored notifications in the form of ads, pop-ups, banners and auto-redirects, and it is associated with the Ttubidy site for downloading music and videos for free. But if your browser keeps taking you there when you didn’t mean to go, then Yonminuner is the browser hijacker that might be to blame. These pieces of software can change your browser settings without asking for your direct approval and can make your online life annoying. But aside from that, it’s important to check your computer for real malware if this keeps happening, to keep your personal information safe and secure.

Yonminuner Pop-ups

Getting bombarded with Yonminuner pop-ups as soon as you open your browser is annoying and potentially dangerous. These pop-ups might look harmless but clicking on them could take you to risky or unwanted websites. In addition to that, some of them might even trick you into downloading harmful software, shaaring your personal info or financial details or purchasing some products and services with questionable quality. So, it’s best to avoid these Yonminuner pop-ups by trying not to click on them and follow some steps to remove them from your browser.

Yonminuner on Chrome

If you’re having trouble with Yonminuner on Chrome, because this hijacker has taken over your web browser and has modified its search engine or home page, then start by checking for any apps or extensions that might be related to the hijacker, as well as any other apps you don’t recognize and get rid of them. Then, fix any changes Yonminuner on Chrome browser changes, like your default homepage address or your main search engine, to get things back to normal. Running a good security program can also help catch anything you might miss and keep your browser clean.


Being forced to visit Yonminuner.com or similar sites by auto-redirects can be more than just annoying; it can lead to serious security risks. These redirects might be trying to show you different ads, but they could also lead you to web pages where you may accidentally download harmful software such as ransomware, spyware or Trojans. Therefore, staying safe online should be your top priority, and this means being careful about where you click and keeping your browser and security software up to date to avoid Yonminuner.com and its intrusive content.

Step1 Uninstall the Yonminuner app and kill its processes

The first thing you must try to do is look for any sketchy installs on your computer and uninstall anything you think may come from Yonminuner. After that, you’ll also need to get rid of any processes that may be related to the unwanted app by searching for them in the Task Manager.

Note that sometimes an app, especially a rogue one, may ask you to install something else or keep some of its data (such as settings files) on your PC – never agree to that when trying to delete a potentially rogue software. You need to make sure that everything is removed from your PC to get rid of the malware. Also, if you aren’t allowed to go through with the uninstallation, proceed with the guide, and try again after you’ve completed everything else.

  • Uninstalling the rogue app
  • Killing any rogue processes

Type Apps & Features in the Start Menu, open the first result, sort the list of apps by date, and look for suspicious recently installed entries.

Click on anything you think could be linked to Yonminuner, then select uninstall, and follow the prompts to delete the app.

Press Ctrl + Shift + Esc, click More Details (if it’s not already clicked), and look for suspicious entries that may be linked to Yonminuner.

If you come across a questionable process, right-click it, click Open File Location, scan the files with the free online malware scanner shown below, and then delete anything that gets flagged as a threat.

    After that, if the rogue process is still visible in the Task Manager, right-click it again and select End Process.

    Step2 Undo Yonminuner changes made to different system settings

    It’s possible that Yonminuner has affected various parts of your system, making changes to their settings. This can enable the malware to stay on the computer or automatically reinstall itself after you’ve seemingly deleted it. Therefore, you need to check the following elements by going to the Start Menu, searching for them, and pressing Enter to open them and to see if anything has been changed there without your approval. Then you must undo any unwanted changes made to these settings in the way shown below:

    • DNS
    • Hosts
    • Startup
    • Task
    • Services
    • Registry

    Type in Start Menu: View network connections

    Right-click on your primary network, go to Properties, and do this:

    Undo DNS changes made by Yonminuner

    Type in Start Menu: C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts

    Delete Yonminuner IPs from Hosts

    Type in the Start Menu: Startup apps

    Disable Yonminuner startup apps

    Type in the Start Menu: Task Scheduler

    Delete Yonminuner scheduled tasks

    Type in the Start Menu: Services

    Disable Yonminuner services

    Type in the Start Menu: Registry Editor

    Press Ctrl + F to open the search window

    Clear the Registry from Yonminuner items

    Step3 Remove Yonminuner from your browsers
