How does it act

It is likely that you ran into the hijacker unintentionally, during freeware installation. You were likely just inattentive, and you did not purposely choose to install it. Because users rarely pay attention to program installation processes, redirect viruses and similar threats may spread. Pay attention to the process since items tend to hide, and by not seeing them, you are allowing them to install. Opt out of using Default mode as they will permit unfamiliar items to install. Instead, select Advanced (Custom) settings because they’ll show you the offers and permit you to deselect them. Unchecking all the boxes is encouraged if you want to block the unnecessary applications. All you have to do is unmark the items that appear, and you may then continue freeware installation.

In some cases, they might appear legitimate, so for example if you were to search for something quite ambiguous, like ‘anti-virus’ or ‘computer’, results redirecting to doubtful sites might come up but you wouldn’t notice initially. You might even be redirected to pages that conceal malware. The hijacker will follow you around as you browse, gathering various information about your browsing activity.
