About redirect viruses

The reason the hijacker is installed is because you didn’t see it attached to some application that you installed. If you don’t want these kinds of threats inhabiting your device, be careful about what you install. Browser hijackers are not exactly malicious threats but their activity does raise a few questions. Your browser’s homepage and new tabs will be set to load the redirect virus’s advertised site instead of your normal website. They also modify your search engine into one that can insert sponsored links into results. If you click on one of those result, you’ll be redirected to weird web pages, whose owners make income from boosted traffic. You need to be careful with those redirects because you could contaminate your PC with malware if you got redirected to a malicious site. Malware is a much more severe contamination and it could bring about more dire consequences. You may find the hijacker’s provided features helpful but you ought to know that you can find reliable add-ons with the same features, which do not jeopardize your system.

What do I have to know about these infections

This might come as surprise but hijackers are generally attached to free applications. It is not likely that you acquired it in any other way, as no one would install them willingly. Because users seldom pay attention to program installation processes, this method permits browser redirects and similar threats to be spread. The offers are hiding and if you rush, you have no chance of seeing them, and you not noticing them means their installation will be authorized. Default mode will not show anything, and if you still select to use them, you might be risking installing all kinds of unfamiliar infections. Choose Advanced or Custom settings when you are installing something, and added items will become visible. Unchecking all the items would be the best choice, unless you want to have to deal with unnecessary installations. And until you have done that, don’t continue with the freeware installation. Having to deal with these threats can be pretty annoying so you would save yourself a lot of time and effort if you initially stopped them. We also advise not downloading from dubious sources as they’re a great method to spread malicious software.

If a browser redirect is installed, we really doubt you would not be aware of it. Your homepage, new tabs and search engine would be set to a different site without your explicit authorization, and that is rather hard to not notice. Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox will be included in the list of browsers affected. And unless you first uninstall StandartConsoleSearch from the computer, you’ll have to deal with the page loading every time you launch your browser. The browser hijacker will reverse all changes you perform so do not waste time trying to alter the settings back to usual. There is also a likelihood 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 from the hijacker’s set search engine. Pressing on any of those results is not encouraged because you will end up on advertisement websites. Browser hijackers will reroute to sponsored sites as they aim to help owners make income. Owners will be able to earn more revenue when their web pages have more traffic since more users will likely interact with adverts. Those pages are generally rather obvious because they evidently will be irrelevant to search query. Some of the results could appear real at first but if you are vigilant, you ought to be able to tell the difference. Browser hijackers do not analyze those web pages for malware, thus you could end up on one that may prompt malicious programs to download onto your machine. Another thing you need to be aware of is that hijackers are capable of spying on you so as to get data about what you press on, what websites you visit, your search inquiries and so on. Read the Privacy Policy to find out if the obtained info would be shared with third-parties, who may use it to customize adverts. The hijacker might also use it for its own purposes of customizing sponsored content so that you’re more likely to click on it. This is why you need to eliminate StandartConsoleSearch.
