How does it behave

Free application packages are probably the most likely way you got the infection. They are obviously pretty invasive infections, so we doubt anyone would knowingly installed them. The reason this method is so widely used is because users are careless when installing programs, missing all hints that something attached. The offers are hidden and if you rush, you have no chance of seeing them, and you not seeing them means their installation will be authorized. Do not select Default mode because they won’t permit you to deselect anything. Ensure you always choose Advanced or Custom settings, as only there will extra items not be hidden. Unmarking all the boxes would be the best choice, unless you want to have to deal with unnecessary installations. Only continue installing the application after you uncheck everything.

Review what sources you use to download your applications because by using untrustworthy sites, you are risking infecting your system malware.

The only good thing about hijackers is that they are easy to see. Your search engine, new tabs and home web page will be set to a different site, and the browser hijacker will not require your permission to carry out those changes. Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox will be included in the list of browsers affected. And unless you first erase Search.hcheckmyemail.co from the device, the website will greet you every time you open your browser. And even if you attempt to alter the settings back, the redirect virus will just modify them again. If when you search for something results are generated by a strange search engine, the browser hijacker probably altered it. You might encounter advertising content among legitimate results, since the threat is intending to redirect you. Owners of certain sites intend to increase traffic to earn more revenue, and redirect viruses are used to redirect you to them. Owners will be able to earn more revenue when there is more traffic since more users will probably engage with advertisements. Often those web pages have little to do with what you are were actually searching for. In certain cases, they could appear legitimate, so if you were to search for something quite ambiguous, like ‘anti-virus’ or ‘computer’, results redirecting to shady web pages might come up but you wouldn’t know in the beginning. You ought to also keep in mind that hijackers are able to redirect to malicious software hiding web pages. Your browsing activity will also be followed, with the goal of collecting data about what you’re interested in. Some browser hijackers provide access to the information to unfamiliar parties, and it’s used advertisements purposes. After some time, the sponsored content will become more personalized, and that is because the redirect virus is using the information acquired. We’re certain that the reroute virus shouldn’t be authorized to stay installed on your operating system, so eliminate Search.hcheckmyemail.co. And after the process is finished, you may go modify your browser’s settings back.
