Major browsers like Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox will probably be affected. The site will greet you every time your browser is opened, and this will go on until you delete MonConvertisseur from your machine.

Be careful of advertisement content injected among the results as you might be redirected. These types of threats have a goal of increasing traffic for certain pages so that more revenue from adverts is earned. After all, increased traffic means who are prone to pressing on ads, meaning more profit. If you press on those sites, you will be taken to pages with no relation to what you were searching for, where you will not find appropriate data. Some of the results may appear real in the beginning but if you are attentive, you ought to be able to tell the difference.
