How does it behave

You possibly came across the redirect virus accidentally, when you were installing free applications. We doubt that you obtained it in any other way, as no one would install them knowing what they are. This method is effective because people are somewhat careless when they install freeware, instead, choosing to hurry and not read the given data. The offers are hidden and if you rush, you have no chance of seeing them, and you not noticing them means their installation will be authorized. By choosing to use Default settings, you could be permitting all kinds of unfamiliar offers to install, so it would be best if you don’t use them. Instead, select Advanced (Custom) mode since they’ll not only make added offers visible but also provide a chance to deselect everything. Unchecking all the offers would be the best choice, unless you want to have to deal with unnecessary installations. Only continue installing the software after you have deselected everything. Initially preventing the infections can save you a lot time because dealing with it later could be time-consuming and annoying. Additionally, you ought to be more cautious about where you get your programs from as unreliable sources can lead to malicious program infections.

It’ll alter browser’s settings without your authorization so your homepage, new tabs and search engine will be changed to show a different website. Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox will be among the browsers affected. And until you remove CapitalCharacterSearch from the OS, the page will load every time your browser is opened. Each time you alter the settings, the hijacker will just reverse them. It is also likely that your search engine will be changed, which would mean that whenever you use the browser’s address bar to look for something, results would be generated not from your set search engine but from the one the browser redirect is promoting. It could be implanting sponsored content into the results so that you’re rerouted. You’ll be rerouted because browser redirects aim to help site owners make more profit from increased traffic. After all, more traffic means who are prone to pressing on ads, meaning more income. They often have little to do with what you were searching for, so you get little from those websites. Some of the results might seem valid at first but if you pay attention, you ought to be able to differentiate them. Take into consideration that redirect viruses could also lead to infected websites, where you may come across a serious threat. Redirect viruses also tend to monitor how users use the Internet, collecting certain information. More relevant ads might be made using the gathered information, if it is shared with unrelated parties. If not, the reroute virus would be using it to make the sponsored results more personalized. You should erase CapitalCharacterSearch, and if you’re still in doubt, reread this paragraph again.
