About this infection in short

Search.hthenewssource.net is a reroute virus seen as a rather minor infection. Browser intruders are for the most part accidentally set up by users, they might even be oblivious to the contamination. It travels attached to free applications so if you find it occupying your machine, you did not notice it being attached when you set up free software. No need to worry about the hijacker directly harming your PC as it’s not thought to be malicious. It will, however, be capable of bringing about reroutes to advertisement pages. Redirect viruses don’t make sure the sites are not dangerous so you may be redirected to one that would permit malware to infect your computer. It will not provide any beneficial services to you, so keeping it is pretty pointless. If you wish to return to usual browsing, you just need to erase Search.hthenewssource.net.

How did the hijacker invade your device

This could possibly not be known to you that free software often come with additional offers. Adware, browser hijackers and other likely unnecessary applications may come as those extra items. Those added items can only be spotted in Advanced (Custom) mode so unless you choose those settings, you will install all types of unnecessary rubbish. If there are added items, all you need to do is untick the boxes. Default mode will not show any offers so by opting for them, you are essentially providing them authorization to install automatically. Now that it’s clear how it infected your system, delete Search.hthenewssource.net.

Why should I uninstall Search.hthenewssource.net?

Expect for your browser’s settings to be modified as soon as you set up the reroute virus. The site the hijacker is promoting will be set to load as your homepage. It does not really matter which browser you are using, whether it’s Internet Explorer, Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, because they will all have that page loading. And unless you first terminate Search.hthenewssource.net, you might not be able to change the settings back. Your new home website will be promoting a search engine, which we do not suggest using as it will insert advertisement contents into the legitimate search results, so as to reroute you. Browser intruders aim to make as much traffic as possible for web pages so that owners get profit, which is why they reroute you. The reroutes will be terribly irritating as you will end up on odd websites. You must also know that the redirects won’t only be annoying but also somewhat dangerous. You can be led to some harmful page, where malware may be lurking, by those reroutes. If you wish this to not occur, eliminate Search.hthenewssource.net from your machine.
