What is browser hijacker?

Browser hijacker is a malicious program, usually a web browser plug-in or add-ons, which modifies web browser settings in order to change default search page, home page, new tab or error page. After that, it starts unwanted redirects to undesirable Internet sites.

It appears SpyHunter found it and will fix it once you pay for their software. It also found 328 threats that Webroots antivirus didnt. Ill pay the money and if it doesnt work... Ill report back.

I used CCleaner to fix this problem- had tried several other options, including Malware, Spybot, Trend HijackThis and good ol CCleaner ended up being the solution. I had already deleted the program through which this problem started through "Uninstall a program" but my Google Chrome was still getting hijacked. So I went to CCleaner -> Tools -> Startup and went to the Google Chrome tab. Went through the different extensions and deleted all the ones that I found "suspicious"- culprit turned out to be the Vaaudix extension, but got rid of other harmful extensions too! Didnt know that CCleaner had this ability, but Im glad it did! Hopefully this helps!
