About this threat in short

It travels through program bundles so if it is on your operating system, you most likely recently set up free programs.

Take into consideration, however, that you might be redirected to sponsored web pages, as the browser intruder aims to generate pay-per-click profit. Hijackers do not ensure the sites are not dangerous so you could be redirected to one that would authorize malevolent software to enter your device. You will get nothing by keeping the redirect virus. Remove Secure-surf.net for everything to go back to normal. Secure-surf.net-_6.jpg

What ways do hijackers use to infect

It might not be known to a lot of users that additional items come with freeware. Ad-supported software, hijackers and other possibly unwanted utilities may come as those extra items. Users generally end up setting up hijackers and other unwanted offers since they do not select Advanced (Custom) settings during a free program installation. Make sure you uncheck everything that becomes visible in Advanced mode. Default settings will not show anything adjoined so by selecting them, you are basically providing them authorization to set up automatically. You should uninstall Secure-surf.net as it didn’t even ask for explicit authorization to set up.

The redirect virus’s performed alterations include setting its advertised site as your homepage, and this will be done without your permission.
