How does it behave

You likely got the browser hijacker was when you were installing free applications. It is unlikely that you obtained it in any other way, as no one would install them knowing what they are. This method is effective because people tend to rush installations, not reading the provided information, and in general just being quite careless when installing software. Those items are generally hidden during installation, and if you do not pay attention, you’ll not notice them, which means they will be permitted to install. Default mode will not show anything, and by opting for them, you might be risking installing all types of unfamiliar threats. Make sure you always select Advanced or Custom mode, as only there will extra offers become visible. If you do not wish to deal with unwanted installations, deselect every offer that appears. And until you do, do not continue with the freeware installation. Preventing the threat from the very beginning can save you a lot time because dealing with it later can be time-consuming and aggravating. You ought to also stop downloading from dubious web pages, and instead, pick official/legitimate websites/stores.

Redirect virus infections are seen immediately, even by users who don’t have much experience with computers. Your browser’s settings will be altered, the hijacker setting a strange website as your home web page, new tabs and search engine, and it’ll be done even without your explicit authorization. All well-known browsers will probably be altered, including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. And until you eliminate Eristian.com virus from the computer, the page will load every time you launch your browser. Every time you modify the settings, the browser redirect will just invalidate them. If the redirect virus modifies your search engine, every time you carry out a search via browser’s address bar or the provided search box, you’d see results generated by that engine. Because the infection is aiming to reroute you, be careful of advertisement content in the results. Those reroutes might be happening because of money reasons, since owners of those web pages earn more revenue when traffic is boosted. Owners are able to earn more income when their pages have more traffic since more people are likely to engage with adverts. It is often that those web pages have little to do with what you are were actually looking for. In some cases they could appear real at first, if you were to search ‘malware’, websites promoting fake security programs may come up, and they may look to be legitimate at first. Some of those pages could even be harmful. Hijackers are also keen on studying your browsing activity, so it’s probable it’s following your browsing. The data could then be shared with unrelated parties, and it could be used by people with unknown intentions. The data may also be used by the browser hijacker to make content you’d be more inclined to press on. For all the reasons noted above you ought to remove Eristian.com virus. Since the browser hijacker will no longer be there to stop you, after you carry out the process, ensure you restore your browser’s settings.
