What does it do

This might surprise you but redirect viruses are commonly attached to freeware. They are unneeded and pretty invasive infections, so we doubt anyone would willingly installed them. Because people do not pay attention to program installation processes, redirect viruses and similar threats may be distributed. Those items are generally hidden during installation, and if you’re not paying attention, you’ll miss them, which means they’ll be permitted to install. Choosing Default settings would be a mistake as they won’t show anything. You need to deselect the offers, and they will only be visible in Advanced or Custom mode. You’re recommended to uncheck all the offers. After all the offers have been deselected, you may continue installing the free program. We doubt you want to be wasting time trying to deal with it, so it’s best if you block the infection in the first place.

It will change your browser’s settings, set a strange page as your homepage, new tabs and search engine, and it will be done even if you don’t agree with the modifications. Leading browsers including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox will probably be affected. And until you remove Newtab.win from the device, you’ll be stuck with the site loading every time you open your browser. Every time you change the settings, the hijacker will just reverse them. If when you search for something results are made not by your set search engine, the hijacker possibly altered it. Don’t go around clicking on all results as they’d lead to advertisement pages. Website owners frequently employ redirect viruses to increase traffic and make more revenue, which is why you are redirected. After all, more traffic means who are prone to clicking on ads, meaning more profit. If you click on those sites, you’ll be taken to web pages with no relation to what you were searching for, where you won’t find appropriate data. In certain cases, they might look legitimate, so for example if you were to search for something ambiguous, like ‘anti-virus’ or ‘computer’, results with questionable links might come up but you wouldn’t know initially. Some of those websites might even be harmful. Hijackers also like to monitor peoples’ Internet usage, gathering certain data. Read the Privacy Policy to find out if unfamiliar third-parties will also get access to the info, who might use it to create advertisements.
