How does it behave

You’re likely not aware of this but redirect viruses are frequently attached to free software. Since these are pretty intrusive and aggravating infections, we highly doubt you got it willingly. This method is effective because users don’t pay attention when they install free programs, instead, opting to rush and not read the info that is given. The items are hidden and by rushing you loose all chance of seeing them, and you not seeing them means they will be permitted to install. Default mode will not show anything, and by selecting them, you may be risking installing all kinds of unfamiliar infections. Choose Advanced (Custom) mode when you are installing something, and you will see the attached items. If you don’t want to deal with unfamiliar installations, deselect every offer that appears.

If when you search for something results are made by a strange search engine, the hijacker probably altered it. Pressing on any of those results is not encouraged because you will be redirected to sponsored content. Browser hijackers will redirect to certain web pages so that owners could make income. More traffic helps web page owners make revenue as more users will probably interact with the adverts. They often have little to do with what you were looking for, so you get nothing from those pages. Some of the results might appear legitimate at first but if you are attentive, you should be able to tell the difference.
