You must have recently installed some type of freeware, because browser intruders usually travel through free program packages. No direct damage will be done your computer by the reroute virus as it is not thought to be malicious. Be aware, however, that you may be rerouted to advertisement pages, as the browser hijacker aims to create pay-per-click revenue. Those websites are not always not dangerous so keep in mind that if you were to get redirected to a page that is not safe you may end up with damaging software on your machine. You will get nothing by allowing the reroute virus to remain. Terminate Savvy.search.com for everything to go back to normal. savvy.search_.com-_6.jpg
