How does it behave

You likely ran into the redirect virus accidentally, when you were installing freeware. Since these are pretty intrusive and irritating infections, we very much doubt you got it knowing what it is. This method is effective because users are somewhat negligent when they install freeware, as in they rush and do not read the data that is given. Pay attention to the process because items are hidden, and by not noticing them, you’re basically giving them authorization to install. Don’t decide Default mode because they won’t show anything. Advanced or Custom settings, on the other hand, will make the items visible. Unmarking all the items would be the best choice, unless you want to have to deal with unnecessary installations. Just uncheck the offers that appear, and you can then continue installing the freeware. Having to deal with these infections can be annoying so you would do yourself a great favor if you initially prevented them. You’re also suggested to not download from unreliable sources as you could easily get malware this way.

When a browser hijacker installs, you will know soon after infection. It will alter browser’s settings without first asking you so your home website, new tabs and search engine will be altered to show a different page. Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox will be included in the list of browsers affected. And unless you first erase Geturprize.net virus from the computer, you will have to deal with the web page loading every time your browser is launched. The hijacker will keep reversing the changes back so there’s no use in wasting time attempting to alter anything. If when you search for something results are created by a weird search engine, it is probable that the redirect virus is accountable. As the threat is intending to reroute you, be cautious of sponsored content in the results. Owners of certain sites intend to boost traffic to earn more revenue, and they use browser hijackers to reroute you to them. After all, more traffic means more users on ads, meaning more profit. Often those pages have little to do with what you are were initially looking for. In certain cases, they could appear to be legitimate, so if you were to search for something ambiguous, like ‘anti-virus’ or ‘computer’, results with doubtful hyperlinks could come up but you would not know in the beginning. You can even be rerouted to websites that have malware on them. Hijackers are also interested in information about your Internet usage, so it is probable it is following your browsing. Redirect viruses also give access to the information to unrelated parties, and it’s used to make more user relevant advertisements. If not, the browser hijacker could use it to make the sponsored content more relevant. While the infection isn’t the most damaging one, you should still erase Geturprize.net virus. After the process is complete, you should be permitted to undo the modifications executed by the redirect virus.
