About this infection in short

Hgreatent.top is thought to be a browser hijacker that might install without your authorization. Very seldom do users install the hijacker willingly and most often, they aren’t even aware of how it occurred. Try to recall whether you have recently set up some kind of a free software, as browser intruders generally use software packages to distribute. No direct harm will be done your OS by the redirect virus as it is not believed to be dangerous. It will, however, cause redirects to advertisement sites. Browser intruders don’t check the sites so you can be rerouted to one that would allow damaging software to infiltrate your machine. It is not really beneficial to you, so keeping it is quite pointless. If you want to go back to usual surfing, you must remove Hgreatent.top.
