About this threat in short

Ointended.pro is classified as a hijacker, a somewhat low-level contamination that shouldn’t directly damage to your OS. Setup for the most part occurs by chance and often users don’t even know how it occurred. The most frequent way hijackers spread is using freeware bundles. No need to worry about the hijacker doing direct damage to your PC as it is not considered to be dangerous. It will, however, reroute to sponsored portals. Those web pages are not always secure so if you were to visit a unsecure website, you might end up allowing a much more severe risk to enter your PC. You will get nothing by keeping the hijacker. Erase Ointended.pro for everything to go back to normal.

How did the hijacker arrive in my computer

Freeware often come with additional items. The list includes advertisement-supported software, redirect viruses and other types of undesirable utilities. Those extra items are hiding in Advanced or Custom settings so if you don’t pick those settings, you will set up all kinds of unnecessary clutter. If something has been adjoined, it will appear there, and you should untick everything. By using Default mode, you are essentially giving them authorization to set up automatically. Now that you are aware of how it invaded your OS, erase Ointended.pro.

Why must I erase Ointended.pro?

Don’t be shocked to see your browser’s settings altered the moment it manages to installs your computer. The browser hijacker’s carried out changes include setting its advertised web page as your home website, and it will not have to get your authorization to do this. Whether you are using Internet Explorer, Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, they will all have their settings adjusted. And it can block you from changing the settings back without you first having to delete Ointended.pro from your system. Your new homepage will have a search engine, and we do not encourage using as it will give you loads of sponsored content, in order to reroute you. The browser hijacker is aiming to make as much income as possible, which is why those redirects would occur. The redirects will be remarkably bothersome since you will end up on all types of odd sites. We feel it’s required to mention that the redirects may also be somewhat harmful. The redirects might lead you to a portal where some damaging applications are waiting for you, and some malware could enter your computer. If you want this to not occur, uninstall Ointended.pro from your device.
