How to remove virus from Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox.

Solved Answer is an adware, of a kind known as a browser hijacker. As that name implies, it will mess around with the settings in all popular browsers: Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, etc. Its infection is tricky and different than others. It creates a new FAKE user profile on Firefox browser and google chrome browser. To get rid of this infection you need to remove the unwanted profiles of browser as well. It’s sometimes called a redirect virus, but that’s incorrect as it can’t delete or corrupt your data. Even so, it’s potentially dangerous and you should uninstall it. Homepage Image

Almost every example of attack by results from bundling. This means that you will have used the quick install option to add a new piece of software to your system, and not realized that the hijacker has been auto-installed along with it. This is most likely to happen via insecure and unchecked file download hosts. Although it’s possible to get infected through other means like spam emails, it’s much rarer.

Like most browser hijackers, this one will change the URL of your homepage, so always check when you start to use the Internet. The tell-tale sign of having been hit by is that you’ll see a mostly white page with a green “Youndoo” logo and a graphic of a magnifying glass. Don’t try to search with it, since that will open you up to a flurry of pop-up ads, misleading results, affiliate banners, and even potentially links to malware-hosting websites.

If you want to stop being a risk to you, you’ll be pleased to learn that this is easy. You need to get rid of any links and bookmarks to suspicious websites, and only to download files when you’re sure that a host is safe. Even then, when you install a new program you ought to make sure that you use the “detailed” setting. Even though this may take a little longer, it’s much safer as you can check what’s entering your system.
