What does it do

It’s likely that you encountered the redirect virus unintentionally, during freeware installation. It is unlikely that you got it in any other way, as no one would install them willingly. The reason this method is successful is because people act carelessly when they install software, missing all indications that something attached. Those offers will be hidden during installation, and if you aren’t paying attention, you will miss them, which means their installation will be permitted. Default settings will conceal the offers, and if you still choose to use them, you could be risking installing all kinds of unwanted infections. Advanced (Custom) mode, on the other hand, will make the items visible. If you don’t wish to deal with constant uninvited software, deselect every item that becomes visible. After you deselect all the items, you may continue installing the freeware.

Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox will be included in the list of browsers affected. And unless you first uninstall Handlemylife.info from the machine, the web page will greet you every time you launch your browser. The hijacker will nullify all changes you carry out so do not waste time attempting to modify the settings back to normal. If the hijacker also sets a different search engine for you, every time you perform a search via browser’s address bar or the provided search box, your results would be made by that engine. Do not click on the advertisement content which you will see among the results because you might be redirected. Hijackers are sometimes used by web page owners to increase traffic and earn more revenue, which is why redirects are happening. After all, more traffic means who are prone to pressing on advertisements, meaning more revenue. They sometimes have little to do with your initial search query, so it shouldn’t be hard to differentiate between real results and sponsored ones, and they’re unlikely to provide the answers you need. Some could seem legitimate, if you were to make an inquiry for ‘anti-malware’, it’s possible you could encounter results for sites endorsing doubtful antivirus software, but look completely legitimate in the beginning. Browser hijackers do not analyze those sites for malicious software, thus you could end up on one that might prompt malicious software to download onto your machine. Furthermore, the hijacker could also be following how you use the Internet and acquiring certain type of data about you. Reroute viruses also give access to the information to unrelated parties, and it’s used to create more user relevant adverts. The data is also possibly used by the hijacker to make content that would interest you. We highly encourage you terminate Handlemylife.info, for all the above mentioned reasons.
