removal by Alice Woods - - | Type: Browser hijacker

Install.stream-all.com is a browser redirect virus that spreads via the StreamAll extension together with feed.stream-all.com

Install.stream-all.com browser hijacker

Install.stream-all.com is a browser hijacker that constantly redirects users' searchers to suspicious websites on Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari, Mozilla Firefox, Opera or other browsers. The potentially unwanted program linked to this unwelcome activity is called StreamAll and is responsible for various other browser-hijacking viruses floating around the internet. PUPs are applications that usually get installed into users machines when they do not pay close attention to shareware or freeware installation procedure. Once established, Install.stream-all.com together with Feed.stream-all.com will continually appear on the user's search bar, new tab URL, and other computer settings. As a result, the victim is provided with alternative search results that link to sponsors' websites via Yahoo. While browser hijackers are not considered to be malware, they are often associated with various negative experiences by users, as they struggle to find relative information due to excessive sponsored links, struggle with Install.stream-all.com removal, and notice the increasing amount of advertisement on various unrelated websites.

Name Install.stream-all.com
Associated extension StreamAll
Type Browser hijacker/PUP
Developer Webcoapps
Infiltration Software bundling, third-party sites, etc.
Symptoms Hijacked homepage and new tab url
Main dangers Money loss, installation of other bogus software, malware infections
Termination Use security software or make use of our step-by-step guide below
Recovery and optimization To restore your computer to a pre-infection state, use ReimageIntego repair tool

The main problem with Install.stream-all.com hijack is that it prevents users from viewing the information they are looking for. Additionally, such activity can mislead users into installing software or purchasing products they did not intend to buy. Besides, such activity artificially increases traffic to Stream-All affiliated parties, increasing their sales. In the meantime, Install.stream-all.com receive pay-per-click revenue.

Once Install.stream-all.com PUP settles, it performs the following:

  • Sets search engine, new tab address and the homepage to Install.stream-all.com;
  • Redirects all searches to Yahoo;
  • Redirects to partner's websites (in some cases, might be unsafe);
  • Shows an excessive amount of sponsored links;
  • Tracks and collects a variety of information related to users' web browsing activities.

While Yahoo is a legitimate search engine, it should not be used in conjunction with a browser hijacker like StreamAll. The original search engine would provide you clean and relative results which would not lead you to sponsored sites. Thus, being redirected via Install.stream-all.com brings no use.

As we already mentioned, potentially unwanted programs track various information about its users, and Install.stream-all.com is no exception. According to the Privacy Policy:

Non-Personal Information which is being collected may include technical information automatically transmitted by the user's device (for example, type of browser, the type of the user's device and technical information pertaining to the user's device, language preferences, time stamps, clicks and visited pages, search logs, the operating system, utilized internet service provider and other similar information.

The information gathering is a huge topic nowadays, and multiple industry giants (for example, Facebook)[1] were already punished for illegitimate information sharing. There is no need to provide your data to third-parties like Install.stream-all.com authors.

All in all, we suggest you remove Install.stream-all.com redirects from your browser by terminating StreamAll app. After that, we recommend you reset your browsers and scan your device ReimageIntego for best results.

Install.stream-all.com PUPInstall.stream-all.com is a potentially unwanted program that infiltrates users' machines with the help of freeware and shareware bundles

Beware that third-party sites that host freeware bundle potentially unwanted programs

All third-party sites (including well-known ones like Download.com, File Hippo, Softonic, etc.) bundle potentially unwanted programs. Many research was done, and it proved that by simply installing ten most-downloaded apps might compromise your computer excessively.[2] Unfortunately, software bundling remains the main financing method for such sites, as well as free software developers, and the only way to avoid PUPs is by being attentive while installing new software.

Of course, the best option would be to rely on paid versions of apps or alternatives to freeware to be completely safe. However, many people do not want to spend, and instead rely on freeware/shareware. However, be aware that when the application is free, developers will use you to monetize in one way or another. Unfortunately, such a scheme might compromise your online safety and computer security.

Thus, be very careful after launching the installation wizard – do not rush through the installation steps and make sure you pick Advanced/Custom settings for the process. Selecting this option will reveal the hidden third-party programs like add-ons, plugins, system optimizers, driver downloaders, and similar bloatware.[3]

Remove Install.stream-all.com redirects either manually or automatically

For those who are less tech-savvy, we would recommend an automatic Install.stream-all.com removal option. For that, download a reputable security application and perform a full system scan. Because SteamAll is a legitimate application, however, not all AV engines might detect the threat. For that reason, use security software that focuses on potentially unwanted programs rather than malware.

Alternatively, you can remove Install.stream-all.com virus by entering the list of installed apps and terminating them. The instructions below will help you with that. After that, you should reset each of the installed browsers, as browser hijackers are known to leave traces even after initial program removal.

Protect your privacy – employ a VPN

There are several ways how to make your online time more private – you can access an incognito tab. However, there is no secret that even in this mode, you are tracked for advertising purposes. There is a way to add an extra layer of protection and create a completely anonymous web browsing practice with the help of Private Internet Access VPN. This software reroutes traffic through different servers, thus leaving your IP address and geolocation in disguise. Besides, it is based on a strict no-log policy, meaning that no data will be recorded, leaked, and available for both first and third parties. The combination of a secure web browser and Private Internet Access VPN will let you browse the Internet without a feeling of being spied or targeted by criminals. 

No backups? No problem. Use a data recovery tool

If you wonder how data loss can occur, you should not look any further for answers – human errors, malware attacks, hardware failures, power cuts, natural disasters, or even simple negligence. In some cases, lost files are extremely important, and many straight out panic when such an unfortunate course of events happen. Due to this, you should always ensure that you prepare proper data backups on a regular basis.

If you were caught by surprise and did not have any backups to restore your files from, not everything is lost. Data Recovery Pro is one of the leading file recovery solutions you can find on the market – it is likely to restore even lost emails or data located on an external device.
