What can be mentioned in regards to this threat

Lightningnewtab.com is considered to be a browser hijacker, a relatively minor infection that shouldn’t directly harm to your machine. Most of the users might be lost when they notice the browser intruder installed, as they don’t realize they installed it by chance themselves. You must have recently installed some type of freeware, since hijackers commonly are distributed using freeware bundles. No need to worry about the hijacker doing direct harm to your system as it’s not considered to be dangerous. You will, however, experience continuous reroutes to promoted pages, as that is the prime reason behind their existence. Hijackers don’t guarantee the websites are secure so you can be rerouted to one that would allow malware to invade your OS. It is not really handy to you, so authorizing it to stay is pretty silly. To go back to normal browsing, you must remove Lightningnewtab.com. Lightningnewtab7.png

How are reroute viruses usually set up

Freeware often travel together with added offers. Advertisement-supported software, browser intruders and other probably not wanted programs could come as those extra offers. Those attached items are hidden in Advanced or Custom mode so unless you opt for those settings, you will install hijackers or other unwanted tools. Make sure you deselect everything that becomes visible in Advanced mode. Installation will happen automatically if you use Default settings as you won’t be informed of anything being attached, and that allows those offers to install. Having to erase Lightningnewtab.com would take a longer time than it would to deselect a few boxes, so take that into account the next time you’re flying through setup.
