removal by Julie Splinters - - | Type: Browser hijacker

eType is a browser add-on, which offers a dictionary, translator and other options that seem to be useful for today's Internet user. However, people who have installed eType software on their computers have started to report about continuous browser's redirections. In reality, this program uses browser hijacker, which tends to alter DNS settings and redirects people to or other domains. If you also suffer from annoying browser's redirections, your PC has been attacked by virus and you should scan your computer immediately.

When inside the system, user may be suffering not only from annoying redirections – this browser hijacker can also change the start page and also make the victim continuously confront sponsored advertisements, spam and similar, suspiciously-looking websites. So, we do NOT recommend ignoring redirections to website because it's dangerous. In order to stop this activity, you must uninstall eType software and also check your computer with anti-malware program to remove from your computer.


eType software can get inside the system either voluntary or not: it can be downloaded from its official page and has also been reported to rely on misleading notifications, that pop-up out of nowhere and offer free dictionaries and translators. Basically, as soon as click on such alert, you may download eType on your computer, which alters homepage and other browser's settings. We do not recommend leaving this software on your computer because its advertisements may lead you to additional software of Daniel Scalosub and third party spyware platforms.
