In general, our security experts strongly recommend all users to avoid leaving active or installed such applications and recommend to terminate and/or remove them immediately, as for them this represents a serious threat to the online identity and computer safety and security.

      Hello Dawid,
      Thank you for your question!
      A number of the today Browser Hijacker & Search Redirect malware infections are using some kinds of a multi-level protection & regenerative mechanism, so even you remove a part of the infection files, the regeneration mechanism kicks in and regenerates the malware infection. Usually this regeneration method uses a browser shortcut manipulation, that could initiate another installation on your computer, making the malware infection active once again !!! The only way to remove these nasty search hijacking infections is:

      1. To reset all your browser settings to their factory defaults

      2. Remove/Uninstall all suspicious program installations, that were installed along with this nasty browser hijacker (most likely the malicious application were installed on your PC during the last few days)

      3. Finally – clean and/or reset all of your Browser’s Shortcuts!

      We recommend you to use the FREE Browser ShortCut Resetting Tool from Enigma Software Group. You can download the Enigma Shortcut Repair Tool from the link below:
