Malwares - Browser Hijacker

Browser Hijackers are various programs that interfere with browser programs. This kind of malware either forces browser to show one particular webpage, inserts advertisements in other web pages, messes up search results or shows various popups in the browser. In the end, user might not be able to use browser at all.
Browser Hijackers are used for 2 malicious purposes. The first one is making money from your browser usage. This is done by redirecting your searches like google redirect virus does or showing popups with advertisements. Each click on resulting webpage will (potentially) make some money to malware makers. The second malicious purpose is prevent one from visiting some websites like makers of malware removal software, security websites and other legitimate sites that would provide help. In the second case, Browser Hijackers are a sign of serious malware problem and the PC should be carefully cleaned from the infection.
