Hijackers are known to be attached to freeware as additional offers. Since these are pretty invasive and aggravating infections, we very much doubt you got it knowing what it is. Because users do not pay attention to program installation processes, this method permits browser hijackers and similar threats to spread. To block their installation, they must be unmarked, but since they are hiding, you may not see them by hurrying the process. Do not opt Default mode because they’ll not display anything. Make sure you always choose Advanced (Custom) mode, as only there will added offers not be hidden. Make sure you uncheck all the offers. All you have to do is unmark the boxes, and you may then continue installing the freeware. Dealing with these infections could be aggravating so you would save yourself a lot of time and effort by initially blocking them.

You will see quite quickly if your computer got infected with a browser redirect. Your browser’s settings will be altered, the hijacker setting a weird website as your homepage, new tabs and search engine, and it will do that even if you do not agree with the alterations. All popular browsers will likely be affected, including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. And until you eliminate Womatonsha.com from the PC, you will be stuck with the page loading every time you launch your browser. Don’t waste time attempting to modify the settings back since the browser hijacker will merely reverse your changes. It is also probable that your search engine will be changed, which would mean that every time you use the browser’s address bar, results would come not from the search engine you set but from the browser redirect’s advertised one. Be cautious of sponsored content inserted among the results because you may be rerouted. Browser redirects will redirect to certain sites so that owners could make income. With more users visiting the website, it’s more likely that the advertisements will be engaged with, which makes money. If you click on those pages, you will be taken to entirely unrelated web pages, where you will find no appropriate data. There will be cases, however, where they might seem legitimate in the beginning, if you were to search ‘virus’, sites advertising false anti-virus might come up, and they may appear to be real initially. You can even end up on web pages that harbor malicious software. Furthermore, the browser hijacker could also be monitoring your Internet browsing and acquiring certain type of information about you. The acquired data may be used to make adverts that are more relevant to the user, if third-parties gain access to it. The redirect virus can also use it for its own purposes of customizing sponsored content so that you’re more prone to pressing on it.
